Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead taster. Thanks BobZ.
Pour: Nearly pitch black, with a touch of deep brown mixed in. Nice finger os khaki, foamy head. Head recedes to a rim and leaves a little bit of lacing.
Smell: Big roasted malts, bourbon, and toasted oak up front. Almost a spicy coffee aspect. Lots of chocolate, toffee, dark fruits, and coffee throughout the nose.
Taste: Follows the nose with roasted coffee, bourbon, milk chocolate, and dark raisins. Sticky, but not overly sweet. The bourbon character provides a nice heat, but is very integrated into the chocolate, vanilla, and dark fruit flavors of the base beer. Finishes sticky with toffee, chocolate, and bourbon.
Mouthfeel: Lightly spicy, which is interesting and lends a level of complexity. Quite sticky, but as previously stated, never too sweet. Nice bourbon heat throughout.
Overall: This beer was even more impressive than the ABCS had before it. Delicious.

Bottle poured into glass stein
Deep black, pours a taupe foam lid. Settles to a layer of taupe
Aroma of sweet malt, bourbon, brown sugar, tobacco, deep rich figs. Smells great.
Incredibly smooth, sweet on the front of the tongue. Bourbon, caramel, sweet malts. Feel the alcohol on the back of the tongue, still smooth and not a sharp bite. Gentle carbonation but a full mouthfeel because of the alcohol. At 10% abv! this is a one beer at a time! not a session beer.
Great beer, silky smooth, rich, flavorful , enjoyable and repeatable.
