Received this in a recent BIF, I think, thanks Apaisncsu!
Pours motor oil black and manages a quarter inch mocha head that fades quickly. Not too surprising with the ABV.
Smell is there, pleasant, but not too powerful. Maybe my bottle got a little cold? Subtle bourbon and chocolate try to register with my senses but I don't come away overwhelmed.
Fortunately the taste makes up for this. Loads of dark fruits and dark chocolate wrapped up in a bourbon coating. Really a pleasant tasting brew.
Mouthfeel is, dare I say, chewy? Still some carbonation to move things along. The alcohol seems to greet you up front, announce its intentions early on but there is no noticeable burn, which is dangerous of course.
Really good brew on a cold night in January. Impressed.
