Poured into a glass tulip.
Bottled March 2013

Black in color, but looks more like cola when swished around in the glass. Two fingers worth of head on the pour with decent lacing as you drink it. I smell brown sugar and chocolate, vanilla, with some hops present as well. Taste is sweet with a slight bitterness at the end which balances it out nicely. Bittersweet chocolate, some bourbon is noticeable but doesn’t take over the entire beer. It has a nice chewy quality to it, smooth and creamy on the palate. Overall this is a very well crafted beer – not hugely complex, but it is very well balanced. Very drinkable for its 10% abv.
