look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

Appearance: The beer was a cloudy shade of black with an off-white colored head crowning the glass.

Smell: The nutty notes jump to the front, but malt and bourbon are also very detectable.

Taste: I love the nuttiness that starts the taste. Nuts, caramel, sweet milk chocolate notes balance in the taste. The bourbon does not overwhelm the taste, but lends itself to balance. The warming aftertaste makes each of the taste notes glow a little brighter. This is orgasmic!

Moutheel; The mouthfeel is a little syrupy and resembles a port. Of course, this allows the taste to linger for an exceptional amount of time.

Overall: This is my first perfect score on BA; I really can not say anything bad about it. I certainly wish it was more accessible.
