3.75/5 rDev -10.3%
650 mL bottle poured into a taster.
Appearance - Black with some red flecks. Small khaki head. Thin collar.
Smell - Really nice bourbon and dark chocolate. Lots of caramel behind it.
Taste - Nice bourbon notes. Chocolate, less dark and roasty. Lots of sweet caramel. Oaky. A bit astringent despite the sweetness.
Mouthfeel - Sweet and kinda boozy. Low carbonation.
Overall - Pretty good, but a lot of caramel. Too sweet.

4.09/5 rDev -2.2%
Bottled 8/30/12. Pours a hazy dark brown with reddish tint, one finger of khaki colored head that settles to a thin ring with a few blobs of lace on the glass. Smell: toasted dark (molasses) bread, very ripe black plum, raisin, booze note, earth, earthy / medium roast coffee. Taste: bourbon eh? espresso, toasted black bread, dark chocolate covered dried cherry. This is tasty, still semi-boozy, and definitely worth the try.
