Tap at Salud NoDa. Your standard black, nice and thick appearing. Thin but frothy layer of tan head. Laces just a bit.

Aroma, roast malt, dark chocolate fudge, some vanilla, oak, bourbon.

Taste, roast malt and bourbon barrel are big and about equal throughout. Roast malt and darker less sweet chocolate. Vanilla and bourbon. Just a little anise and coffee bitterness. It all lingers very nicely.

About full body, a tad warming. Not quite creamy mouthfeel. A nice sipping after dinner or cigar beer for sure.
My favorite dark beer of theirs so far, as good as their Belgian and ipa lines.

On tap at the brewpub which reports 11.7% ABV and use of 3 malts (including honey malt), rye, honey, brown sugar and dextrose. Two samples, 2 days apart.

Pours are dark and opaque red-brown with a small, very durable head.

WW uses a pre-rinsed BBL to great effect on the aroma, flavor and smooth feel. Nit-picking, I note a bit more burnt flavor in the aftertaste than optimal.

O: very enjoyable; every aspect excels.

Black with light khaki head.
Aroma : almond, caramel, very light charcoal, slight but not off-putting vegetal aroma
Taste : big baking chocolate, every chocolate flavor is represented here. Caramel and lots of fig.
Mouthfeel: full, slightly bitter, with next to zero alcohol heat
Overall : excellent beer, and a good representation of style in my opinion
