Poured into a tulip. Damn near black body on this thick oily looking brew with shimmers of brown barely penetrating through the light. A respectable dark mocha colored head sits atop this one. At about an inch thick I'm down right impressed with the high gravity of this beer. After about ten minutes of staring at it I'm still left with a nice layer of creamy foam on top of a big dark body. The aroma is nothing short of fantastic. Rich aromas of molasses, dark chocolate, raisins, and bourbon. The bourbon is integrated into this beer nicely, it gives nice rich caramel/bourbon kick to the nose with only leaving behind a little bit of heat. Damn near perfect aroma as far as I'm concerned. Richness through and through on this. Flavors of toffee and caramel. Chocolate, raisins and spot on bourbon coat the tongue being just slightly hot on the finish. The mouthfeel is full and silky with just a bit of heat. Simply a pleasure to put in my mouth. The biggest flaw on this one, and with big beers in general is they are hot a boozy. But that's not a concern with this one for me. I'm happy to nurse this one for another hour or so.
