Pour is black with dark caramel colored head. Nose is bourbon and strong wood, lightly chalky with a chocolate cake batter behind and notes of caramel. Taste is woody and some bourbon, less of the cake batter, more along the dry bakers chocolate line, still a touch chalky, full body, well carbonated, and semi dry finish.
