look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: not quite motor oil black but more of a dark brown. a finger plus of a tan head that leaves a lacing on the edges. opaque

Smell: kinda weak for a big beer. chocolate, roasted malts, some bourbon some alcohol, hint of cocoa

Taste: starts of with strong roasted malts, mixed with chocolate. gives way to the backend with mixed amounts of cocoa, bourbon, wood and alcohol. quite complex

Mouthfeel: fairly bitter, very full bodied. good warmth

Overall: a great beer to crack and sip on for hours. strong complex and delicious.

Pours a solid black with a good sized tan head that persists for a while. Smells of fudge and chocolate with some caramel vanilla and a bit of woody oak. The flavor follows the aroma but the woody oak and a hint of alcohol are in the foreground while the chocolate caramel confections are an underlying base. Thick body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet silky mouthfeel. This is quite a nice stout I enjoyed sipping it for most of the night.
