look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A. Black body with a small light brown head.

S. Bourbon with a light coco in the aroma.

T. Flavor is coffee and chocolaty but has more bourbon in the scent.

M. Goes Down smooth. Not meant to be consumed quickly but very possible if reckless.

Overall a great stout, better with age.
