Batch #15. Poured into snifter glass.

Appearance: looked insanely thick while pouring. Built a thick brown head. I mean thick. Dissipated slowly. Jet black in color. Not much lacings around the glass.

Smell: Wow, picked up sweet dark chocolate, intense bourbon, some coffee and some brown sugar. It's sweet and delectable. Something that falls in the category of desert.

Taste: Very multidimensional and complex. Milky chocolate, black coffee, and bourbon intermingled. Very complex and boozy. Sweetness all around with lots of heat with flavors all around the mouth. Outstanding.

Mouthfeel: quite simple: thick and creamy

Overall: outstanding. Epic sure pulled this one off. I see a lot of mix reviews, maybe different batches? But batch #15 was outstanding. I really enjoyed this.
