look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours a deep brown color, pitch black once it collects in the glass. A slight mocha head forms, but it disappears pretty quickly.

S: A big mix of sweet dark chocolate, raisin and bourbon that meld together really well. For a beer this huge, the alcohol doesn't really scare you off in the smell.

T: This is fantastic. Tons of rich dark chocolate and bourbon notes with a touch of chocolate covered cherry, raisin, port and char. A huge beer, but it's really smooth and there's no real burn at all, which is pretty crazy. Definitely deserving of its reputation.
