look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black. Inky black. Thin collar. No head. The collar is a dark mocha, though.

Smell - Bourbon. Dark chocolate and coffee roasted malts. Bourbon gets more intense as it warms.

Taste - Bourbon is intense, but the stout comes through. Dark chocolate. Coffee. Nutty malts in the back. Oaky vanilla finish. Heavy roasted malt presence lingers into the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy. Medium low carbonation. Boozy.

Overall - I have no complaints. Really impressive.

Pour is black with a decent amount of tight dark caramel colored head. Nose is very light bourbon barrel with notes of olive, some milk chocolate, light malt sweetness. Very much like madness 1. Body is full, well carbonated, semi dry finish, thick and creamy with a soft palate. Flavors are a bit richer and has a hint more maltiness to it. Bourbon barrel is a bit stronger in the flavor, notes of milk chocolate and a touch of cake batter get taken over by a lot of malt sweetness in the back.

A Pours pitch black into the glass where a 1 finger dark brown head forms. Nice retention in the head. Looks great.

S Big roast, wood, sweet chocolate, some coconut and booze. Really nice as it warms. Last few warm ounces has a raisin and port like scent.

T Big char along with chocolate and wood. Rich chocolate fudge and a nice roast from front to back with a sweet vanilla and oak finish. Bourbon is noticeable but is integrated nicely. Gets sweeter as it warms.

M Thicker feel with medium to light carbonation. Drinks like a nice stout.

O Very nice beer. Everything gets better as it gets to room temp, let this one breathe.
