Shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown almost black hue with no real head, quarter inch maybe that faded real fast to leave a sudsy halo. Nice legs though. 3.75

S - Aromas of dark chocolate fudge, bourbon, vanilla, little bit of coffee. Nose really pops, caramel, nice nuttiness. 4.5

T - Taste is similar to the nose loads of vanilla and chocolate fudge, the bourbon is nice and rich, light coffee, faint caramel. Rather decadent and rich. 4.5

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, finish is a little boozy. With no ABV on the bottle I really really doubt this is 7% like BA says. 4

O - Overall this beer was a pleasant surprise. Much better then I thought it would be, great nose and taste! 4.25

Serving Type: Bottle

Oh yeah Morningwood one of my fav beers of alltime!!!... oh wait, not Funky Buddha... well shit... I hope this is decent.
Thanks to rudzud for trolling me with this one.

Super dark smaller fizzy fluffy like head fades fairly quickly, light lacing, long legs, pitch black color. Ok but not at 7%.

Nose big fudgey dark choc, thick choc cake like, with nice barrel notes, nice bourbon, some vanilla, little roasted coffee, caramel and fudge candy, nutty toffee notes.

Taste big thick creamy fudgey choc, lush cocoa and dark choc, creamy milky choc, etc, little roasted coffee. Then mild vanilla barrel, faint cocoa nibs like cocoa flavor, mild but nice bourbon, little barrel juice even, and little caramel. Mild bitterness. Finish brings more cocoa fudgey choc, more bitterness, little barrel vanilla and bourbon. Little alcohol note on the finish. This really doesn't seems like only 7%.

Mouth is med to fuller bod, maybe slightly thin, little booze warmth, bit thick and fudgey, lighter carb too.

Overall pretty nice, great malts, nice barrel notes too, but some mild flaws prevent it from being higher. Feels more like a 9% beer than a 7%, but still pretty good, still pales in comparison to the Funky Buddha version.
