A: Pours pitch black with a finger of tan head and some foamy lacing.
S: A burst of dark-roasted coffee immediately meets the nose, intermingled with strong aromas of roasted malt. Alcohol-soaked coco nibs linger in the background as well. Notes of oak are also present, but surprisingly little whiskey aroma. Nevertheless, the nose is really incredible--the in-your-face roastiness is sublime.
T: Coco nibs and straight chocolate comes through much more in the flavor and almost becomes cloying before it is saved by roasty bitterness in the finish. Some oaky vanilla flavors and alcohol burn come through in the finish as well. The whiskey finally makes an appearance! After the nose, the flavor is a slight let down, but still very good.
M: Full bodied. Thick and oily. Very mild carbonation and a slight warming from the alcohol. Spot-on mouthfeel.
O: The flavor needs just a little more balance, but otherwise this brew is spot on. Well done! I will be looking out for future iterations of this brew for sure.
