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.

Awesome beer. Mouthful was a little lite. Not to thick. Color is nice and black. Light tan top. 4 hands brewery is in a good location. Close to the stadium and right by soulard. Which is where Mardi gra is. When I wen to the brewery it was after the release which no bottle were available for purchase. An it was not on tap. But lucky enough the guy behind the counter had some buddies up there he opened a bottle for to taste an being in the right place at the right time got a 2oz pour. But I do get to taste it on tap in Columbia,mo at 44 stone! Awesome place.

Generous pour at Three Kings. Thanks Jay!
Pour is dark dark black, small light mocha head, on the thicker side of medium-bodied.
Smell is heavy roasted coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, hint of spice, roasted malts.
Taste was really heavy on bitter, french roast, really dark unsweetened cocoa, a hint of milk chocolate, a little bit of spice from the barrel. Surprisingly low barrel presence. It definitely enhanced, but did not at any point overtake the whole beer. Nice mocha flavor, but I would have appreciated just a hint more sweetness, as this pretty heavy on the roasted notes.
Mouthfeel is medium-thick, chewy, low carbonation. Really great for the style.
Wow, 4 Hands really nailed it with this one. Got the adjuncts just right, great flavors, perfect balance. Wish I had a bottle to cellar.
