From start to finish this beer is purely enjoyable. The aroma swirls between chocolate and coffee as it enters the nose. On the taste, I get chocolate as it transforms into coffee, and finishes with the hints of bourbon and barrel. This is fully bodied and coats the back of the throat. An enjoyable after taste.

Poured from 650 ml bomber into snifter.

Label indicates 12.4 ABV (Release #36)

A: Opaque black with thin brown foam that tries hard to hold on, but dissipates fairly quickly.

S: Oh, the smell! Beautiful cocoa, coffee, barrel and booze throughout.

T: Taste pleasantly follows smell: rich malt, dark chocolate and not too bitter coffee, some acidity, maybe from the barrel. Coffee and booze play together well in the aftertaste.

M: Full body, creamy from the lively carbo, good heat from the whiskey.

O: I love how this beer's smell hangs on almost to the last sip. I also love how the taste does not belie the great smell. I usually look for 12 oz version of beers coming in a 750 ml bomber. It may sound like heresy, but this is a beer that i wish the bomber would be larger. Great balance. Recommended!
