From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled May 17, 2014.

It pours jet black with a long lasting beige head, It is a soft delicate one.

The aroma has a definite bourbon and hard liquor scent to it along with the dark malts and vanilla scent. Earthy hops.

The mouthfeel is pretty bold and creamy.

It is hard to get beyond the boozy bourbon and hard liquor flavors that dominate this over the dark malts and vanilla. This is something that has to be savored slowly.

4.35/5  rDev +11.5%

22oz bottle purchased as a single from Beverage Warehouse, Winooski, VT.

Poured into DFH snifter, formed a 3/4" brown head over the opaque dark brown/black brew. Dense head holds nicely, with thick coating lace. Aroma is hearty, rich and boozy.

Taste is starts with dark malts and chocolate, dark fruits in the middle, and closes with tannins and bitterness and plenty of alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel is slickery smooth, and drinkability is dangerously good. Nice one.
