A huge thanks to RocPorterFanatic for getting me this brew! Cheers buddy!

A: A murky muddy brown as it pours, and damn near black in the glass, even an aggressive pour only brings forth a quaint amount of dark rich brown head, which quickly dissipates into the oil like body of the beer.

S: All the typical malt bombs markers on this guy! Molasses, brown sugar, rich caramel, dark fruit, and a good dose of alcohol. There is almost a hint of creme brule on there as well.

T: Malt, malt malt, and then there is a little more malt. Rich and thick with caramel, burnt sugar, toffee, and espresso in the finish. There is a hint of oak and vanilla, which becomes a little more prevalent as the beer warms. There is a fairly decent dose of alcohol.

M: Thick like oil, but with a little more grit. Low carbonation, smooth and syrupy with a finish that clings like cellophane on cellophane.

O: This is one hell of a malt bomb, I actually wish there was a little more of the bourbon, but man still a killer beer.

The beer comes in a reddish brown copper.

The aroma has huge amounts of sweet sherry, bourbon, dark fruits, dried dates and plums, oak, and rich caramel brown sugar sweetness.

The flavor follows with that sweetness up front. Notes of sherry or port are quite prominent. The beer is smooth and sweet of caramel sugar of BB4D, but there are also touches of roast and chocolate that balance the brew out. Oak and vanilla finish the beer.

A hugely complex beer that drinks like a dessert liqueur.
