3.23/5 rDev -26.8%
Bottle split into two glasses, thanks Megan for sharing (though I reluctantly ended up drinking 2/3 of it). Inky black body with burnt brown edges. It pours slightly viscous and sticky around the edges, with a thin wispy layer of foam that quickly vanishes with minimal lacing.
Aromas of sticky molasses, mellow roast and chocolate. Seems a bit subdued at first, some barrel hints surface as it warms, but still very mellow with a noticeable alcohol presence.
Dominant flavors of tobacco and molasses, faint coffee roast and chocolate in the middle, with some alcohol heat at the tail end. Low carbonation with a chewy, sticky, viscous feel. The malt character has some slight oxidation, tastes like old leather. Not much distinctive bourbon here... some wet wood maybe, but little in the way of actual bourbon. Overall the flavors aren't all that cohesive, instead somewhat messy and it falls a bit flat. Drinkability is reduced by the high abv and sticky feel. Honestly a bit disappointed in this, had high hopes after sampling the fantastic 2012 Samael's recently.
