4.35/5  rDev +4.6%

Pours thick & black with a thumb of mocha colored head. Stellar lacing & slightly above average head retnetion

S: Vanilla, figs, caramel, a little bit of booze & Bourbon notes

T: Follows the nose, some figgy & chicory notes underneath up front, abit of leafy hops as well. Carob, some roasty notes, vanilla, oakyness & a bit more caramel, plus a touch of iron as this warms. Finishes dry/oaky, with a kiss of booze, caramel, vanilla, molasess & figs

MF: Chewy, smooth, subtle carbonation, carbination picks once warm

Drinks easy for the style & ABV, probably the best beer I've had from Marshall, either this or El Cuy Cuy. Marshall, make more of this!

A- Pours a dark brown coming out of the bottle. Not much of a head to speak of. Some light shines through.

S- Powerful, bold RIS aroma. Bourbon, dark fruits, coffee, toffee, and chocolate. I am really liking what this one is bringing to the table.

T- Follows nose. Big sipper here. Bourbon leads the way again, and followed by charred malts, figs, molasses, and some smoky character.

M- Full body, rich, creamy. It's a big beer and it's not afraid to show it.

O- A delicious RIS. One of the better offerings in the state and maybe my new favorite from Marshall.
