A - Pours a dark black/brown color with a medium toffee colored lacing ring in the top of the snifter.

S - Chocolate malt, some vanilla and oak, and bourbon. This was served pretty cold off the tap which is muting the aroma.

T - Flavorful and even across the entire sip with caramel, chocolate roast, vanilla, and a hefty dose of bourbon presence.

M - Thick, full bodied, slick and sticky, slight alcohol warming in the back of the throat and semi-creamy.

O - Bourbon from start to finish and you really have to be a bourbon fan to appreciate this one because it's bold and out front. Really enjoyed this beer, not sure if they bottle it...seek it out.

Pours jet black with a tan head. In the aroma, a light roasted malt with a small coffee presence. In the taste, a small chocolate presence, a small coffee presence and a sweet maltiness. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry coffee, and notes of chocolate in the aftertaste. A nice porter with sweet notes with the chocolate.

Pours charcoal black with a tight cap of fine bubbles. Quite the creamy-looking head.

Some muted coffee and cocoa notes along with that seaside minerality that comes with a Baltic.

Deliciously rich flavors! Roasty, but mellowed, with more mocha notes that are easy to identify for the style. Saltiness pairs well with the chocolate. Hints of blanched peanuts and vanilla, too.

Creamy, like a nitro-draft, although this one's driven by CO2. Body is thicker than medium. Carbonation is tight and well-groomed.

Very nice stuff. A surprise delight between two delicious IPAs during my post-work beer session at Mad Mex. Highly recommended.
