Another thanks to rudzud for beer.
Nice mocha colored thick rich creamy 1/2 finger head, fades at a med pace with nice lacing, pitch black color.
Nose is awesome even from afar, lots of whisky and cocoa, lots of nice dark choc and cocoa, little biscuit wafer candy bar, little caramel too, and little fluffy nougat marshmallow. Mild sweet whisky and little barrel note, little coffee, little earthy dusty coffee but seems to have died out a bit, even a bit fudgey.
Taste is a little light, lots of fudge and dark choc, little cocoa, mild vanilla barrel too, into little caramel but very light. Plenty of whisky and quite hot booze, fairly boozy with alcohol taste. Some coconut coming through nicely, cookie dough and choc, mild earthy nutty coffee but not a ton. Finish is fair bitterness, lots more cocoa and cookie, fudge and vanilla, mild coffee and more hot whisky lingering.
Mouth is med to heavier bod, lighter carb, chewy fudgey, lots of hot booze.
Overall mixed, very nice base beer but that hot booze and whisky cuts right through it and makes it though to drink. Coffee is a but light too. But not too bad.

Shared with JLindros.
A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark brown black hue with a thin mocha head that fades to leave light lacing and nice wisps.
S - Aromas of whiskey, cocoa nibs, coffee is faint. Not getting much barrel, pretty straight forward.
T - Taste is loads of whiskey, loads of it, tons of chocolate, faint coffee on the finish. The whiskey is quite prominent. Light barrel notes faint coconut, faint coffee on the finish. Very hot whiskey.
M - Mouthfeel is not nearly as thick and chewy as I'd like. Almost thin. Super boozy.
O - Overall this beer was a bit disappointing, smelled nice, looked good, but just way too boozy, really a shame.
