Horrendously expensive pours were available at the Emporium Arcade in Chicago. At first, I was like "no way, Joe-say," but then after 5 Yum Yums 12 bucks for 10 ounces somehow began to sound reasonable.

It was goddamn tasty.

Smells of big coffee, sweet chocolate, and just a little wisp of booze burn.

Tastes like it smells, like a glass of Autocrat chocolate milk with a tiny splash of bourbon in it. Starts off with roasted barely, moving quickly into coffee and dark chocolate along with some nodes of vanilla and coconut, ending with a touch of booze.

Very good. Significantly better than BCBS Coffee.

Need my morning coffee. Along with bourbon, vanilla and oak. Super smooth, lower carb. Really delicate and delicious.

Pours thick viscous black in color with a thin tan head that retains nicely. Smell has rich decadent aromas of coffee chocolate vanilla. a light roasted aroma overlays hints of bourbon, oak, and more vanilla. Taste follows nose with a large amount of rich chocolate malt and coffee first to hit the palate before loads of sweet vanilla, roasted malt bitterness, bourbon, fig, oak and more vanilla tannins in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium to thick in body with mild small bubble velvety carbonation and a nice balance eternal sticky sweet and bitter charred malt. Nicely balanced beer.
