Small cola colored head and a lot of carb bubbles sticking to the glass when pouring. This dissipates quickly and you're left with a mostly black body with a red hue to it.
I get a lot of vanilla and dark fruits, with bourbon barrel, as well as some coconut and chocolate syrup. It's not too sweet and not too dry. Smack in the middle for a beer of this style.
An excellent bourbon barrel beer indeed. I prefer this beer to your typical barrel aged RIS because the drinkability is increased without all of that roasty, bitter cocoa and very heavy, full body.

Thanks to all-time-hits-leader beerisheaven for this bottle, one I've been Biblically coveting ever since it came out. Big dark 750ML bottle split with my wife.
First, +2 Charisma points for the cool, minimalist label that's black with silver border, logo, & stylized writing - maybe one of the top five bottles of all time. But really who cares. Cage comes off & the cork begins to levitate almost magically, & I have to seize the thing to keep it from knocking a chip out of the ceiling. Black, with big, bustling carbonation. Nose brings huge boozy, bourbony updrafts mingled with deep malts. OK. Lovely.
A Night to End All Dawns should certainly win Marketing of the Year Award. The beer itself? Seems a touch...off. The back-slapping nose gives way to a beer that's awful thin for a bouncer of a brew, & the carbonation remains off the charts, fizzing distractingly. Vanilla comes through, but the bourbon so evident in the smell is distant. Big dark fruits, & not in a terribly appealing way. Half a bomber? Probably too much.
Disappointed, & I'll say it: showing the first signs of infection. The vicious carbonation, the thinning body, the faded bourbon. Nobody else has mentioned it, but if I had another, I'd drink it. Soon. Sub-average: wish I'd have picked this one up right after it was released.
