Just a hint of the whiskey barrels with a rich coffee flavor and a finish of the chocolate. Smooth drink. Very much enjoyed this beer.

Poured from a Beer Growler growler into a bulbous wine glass.

A - Jet black, half finger that moves quickly to a thin lace. Good lace retention.

S - Cocoa and chocolate, some burnt wood, smoke.

T - Follows the nose, bitteness ensues. Not picking up much whiskey. Some vanilla, coffee more prevalent.

M - Carbonation is medium, moving to low as it warms. Sits heavy, the bitterness makes it finish dry.

O - Serve closer to room temp to reduce some of the bitterness. Definitely a winter slow sipper.

Very chocolately. Almost burnt or bitter. Interesting. I prefer less chocolate but I'm not a chocolate lover.
