Cellared for about a year.

Poured a deep opaque chocolate color with a 1F head in a tulip.

The aroma is very sweet milk chocolate. Unlike other chocolate aromas in beers- layered and nuanced.

The mouth feel is moderately carbonated. With warming, the beer will take on more of an alcoholic finish.

The taste is similar to the aroma- mostly chocolate and subtly layered. There is some Bourbon, but not as strong as I anticipated.

As the beer warms up, the chocolate dissipates, and the alcoholic Bourbon finish is more dominant.

Overall, a wonderful beer. Subtly complex aroma and taste.
