This poured thickly with a black color and a foamy head that laid thinly across the top.

The nose is earthy with a coffee bean and smoke but hints of marshmallow and chocolate are apparent.

The flavor has light coconut, a buttery cream, and marshmallow to open. Chocolatey sweetness follows with malted barley and oak wood.

The feel is dry but velvety smooth, easy but thick and full.

A thoroughly enjoyable beer with a good amount of sweetness to carry it as dessert.

Dark brown, borderline black. There's a thin layer of sandy colored head that resolves to a persistent island of carbonation in the middle and scattered spots of lace on the side of the glass.

Huge coffee and vanilla aroma. Fudge brownie. Smells like an after dinner dessert.

Very smooth. The bourbon barrels impart vanilla and oak flavors without dominating and being boozy. The coffee and chocolate are allowed to shine with the bourbon notes as accents.

Mouthfeel is (relatively) light and soft. Moderate carbonation.

Well executed. I like that it's 8.5% and not a boozy 10+. The coffee and fudge is the backdrop and the bourbon adds layers to it.
