4.66/5  rDev +3.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

P: Pitch black abyss with a deep espresso cap that hugs the edge of the glass. Phantom lacing.

S: First sip, rich caramel coffee syrup, eucalyptus leaves, roast chipotles, play dough, and vanilla cola. Aromas of latex paint, black strap molasses and columbian roast coffee. Rich and decadent but graced with natural aromas that balance this ticking time bomb.

T/M: Upfront carbonated water taste, follows by loads of velvety rich cocoa nibs and a slow building heat brings up the rear and tingles the inner mouth. Lots of earthy flavors, vegetation, roast chilies and medium toast oak. Booze becomes more assertive once warm and delivers dry smoky leftovers.

O: An explosive grand tasting brew by anyone's standards. I really appreciate the delicate balance that was achieved with so many variables that were in play. The heat from the chilies help the bourbon create a heating blanket inside your chest. Makes me proud to be a native Okie. Cheers!

4.53/5  rDev +0.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

The bottle label has 13.0% ABV vice 14.0%.

The body appears India ink black with a thin, wispy dark brown head; sediment left in the bottle. Deep and rich aroma of coffee grounds, charred grain, and chocolate. The taste exudes vanilla, cocoa, and sour cherries; boozy; cigarette ash. Heavy bodied; rich and smooth; velvety mouthfeel.

My goodness, what a heavenly, heavy brew! Big, bold, and rich throughout with incredibly robust and earthy dark tones in appearance, aroma, and flavor! Depth and complexity galore and a perfect for RIS/double stout fans. Most definitely a dark ale flavored road-trip in a bottle!

And I love the catfish on the bottle cap (not that that has anything to do with the beer or its taste appeal -- it just looks cool)...
