4.95/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Pours a nice oily black with just a little head. Some lacing is left along the edges.

S: Smells of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and a bit of malt. This is really inviting like a fine dessert.

T: Taste is even better than the nose. Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, molasses, and some of the base malts. This is like a Black Tuesday cookie. Heat actually low for such a high ABV. I am blown away.

M: This is just thick enough, smooth and silky. Feels very smooth with pretty well hidden heat. I've had beers half this ABV with more heat.

D: With such a silky smooth feel and amazing taste I could easily drink a second bottle of this by myself.
