look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

sampled as many ounces as possible at mardi noir while some stayed dry and others felt the pain

a dense flat black brown syrup that makes legs with a swirl like a port wine or chocolate liqueur

aroma envelops the nostrils full of sweet bourbon and vanilla and fudgy inviting liquorish dark fruits

taste follows and combines all the decadence i love in this type of beer with a shocking smoothness

they should bottle this puppy in twelve ouncers

overall an overwhelming beer sensation

i had to move away from the glass to breathe in
