A pitch black pour into my Darkness tulip. A thin tan head, no decernable carbonation, but amazing oily legs as you swirl the glass.
Deep dark chocolate meets subtle touches of bourbon, vanilla, black coffee and hints of citrusy hops. This is really nicely done. Not one certain thing overwhelms you, everything is blended together seemlessly.
Dark chocolate and cocoa powder, espresso and sweet bourbon. Hints of vanilla and finishes with a nice little touch of orange/citrus.
A touch thin, barely a hint of carbonation... but an amazing burst of citrus finish. Not as much BBA as I was hoping for, but very nicely balanced.
Really nice! Not as great as it was hyped to be imho, but has a great balance and smooth flavors overall. I'd grab this again for sure. Nothing ground breaking, but very well done indeed.

Notes from 7/13/14 - Consumed from a snifter

A: 1/2 inch of dark khaki-colored head which quickly dissipates. Body is the color of flat cola.

S: Bourbon, vanilla, caramel/brulee, rich chocolate

T: Bourbon, molasses, vanilla, chocolate coffee ice cream. Slightly boozy. As it warms there's more bourbon and caramel sweetness.

M: A little thin on the front but turns syrupy on the back. Slight numbness from the booze.

O : Sweet and sippable. I enjoyed it less as it warmed, but delicious nevertheless.
