4.2/5  rDev +6.6%

Smooth, sultry and quite flirtatious with the tastebuds, the otherwise seducing flavors of wonderfully burnt sugar, creamy espresso and bittersweet chocolate coax out the lush in all of us; but woven into a cocoon of bourbon and the taste is nearly overwhelming.

Its ominously black pour intimidates the eye as a caldering simmer of creme rises from its depths. Quickly favoring brandy-type legging over lace or retention, its swirling ink unleashes sweet roast, smoky chocolate and coconut aromatics. Its seared toffee underlay easily supports the roast, oak and booze while offering the heartiness of black-strap molasses and maple.

Its roasty-sweet middle unfolds layer by layer, starting with the delicacy of brownie batter, over-cooked caramel, bittersweet chocolate and something in the fudge realm. As the sweetness slowly releases its grip, its dark roast coffee, light campfire, bittersweet morsels and grilled walnuts take hold and usher in a semi-sweet second half.

With its decadent sweetness resisting much fade, its booze-laden sweetnesses seep deeply into the tastebuds, delivering bourbon warmth, wood spice and smooth char to the senses. Thin fruit of coconut, cherry and vine are highlighted with the oaken caramel and vanilla taste that accompanies the roast in deep aftertaste and afterthought.

A-dark brown black color with a small light brown head and no lacing

S-coffee, chocolate, dark malt, little vanilla

T-coffee, dark roasted malt, chocolate, little vanilla, little bourbon

F-medium body with light carbonation, smooth, little on the light side for this gravity

O-decent, but nothing special, was expecting more from this
