Bottle shared by Umberto at Curran's tasting.

Pours a deep, dark black, with a small, quarter inch head, and not much lacing.

Smells like bourbon, chocolate, booze, caramel, and more booze.

This one is a whopper, so much here. Surprisingly, the booziness is not overpowering- it is hot as hell, but that factors in well with every other flavor, and elevates it a bit. Tons of chocolate, vanilla, caramel, burnt sugar, oak, coconut, cream, molasses. All of those flavors combine together so well into this flavor punch to the face.

Thick bodied, so gloopy and viscous. The mouthfeel is so chewy but creamy. Low carbonation. Due to the alcohol, this one is a real slow sipper.

Glad I finally got to try this one, it's a monster, but a delicious monster too. Treading the line between beer and cognac or something.
