Pours a rich dark brown and sits solid black in the glass with a thin layer tan foam.

Roasty, chocolate, and a light waft of bourbon.

Tons of dark chocolate notes, roasted malts, nutty, and a very faint sign of bourbon.

Heavy-bodied, light carbonation, lush chocolate sweetness, and some roasty bitterness.

Overall, a very tasty version of Eugene, but I was hoping for a little more bourbon character.
