look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A lot of times a pour is the darkest brown which some may call black, but in this case I believe nothing but black evil was poured. Beautiful two and a half inch pour and I could of aggravated more. Deep mahogany merengue head ebbs to a half inch cappuccino froth. Elegance personified.

Aroma of milk chocolate, vanilla, oak and the bourbon has such a persuasiveness. Marshmallow and sweet almond milk.

Again a most gentle bright bourbon influencing cocoa. More of bitterness performs in dark cocoa and nibs. Some coffee influence in the stoutish characteristic. More milk lactose becomes evident ie. FFF Moloko. Some metallic overtones exist- not sure where this comes from, maybe from the alcohol in the bourbon. Not fond of the metallic aftertaste as I find it a distracting.

Medium mouthfeel. Creamy texture and a bit chewy. As it warms, bourbon tones kick in full force with extreme oakiness and the cocoa get more bitter.

Appearance and aroma are really top tier among many. Bourbon, lactose sweetness and cocoa bitterness actually become exasperating for me. I know bourbon barrel aging is an expensive endeavor. Not a bad try but at almost $20 I would have to pass on-sorry, not really. Get it together mannn! Good not gr8.
