Poured chilled into small snifter glass.

Appearance: intense dark brown like molasses. A quarter inch of head which dissipated quickly. No lacings around the glass.

Smell: while chilled, picked up some caramel and vanilla. As the beer warmed up, I picked up whiffs of root beer.

Taste: sweet malt with a touch of bourbon. As it warmed up, noted flavor of Cola. Whiskey flavors became a bit more prominent. Finishes slightly burnt, maybe a little bit of ash. Not a huge malt bomb, I'd say more balance with the malt sweetness and finishes burnt. It wasn't overpoweringly sweet like I expected.

Mouthfeel: highly carbonated - kind of goes hand in hand with the slight Cola taste. But carbonation seems to fade as it warms up. No booziness or heat noted.

Overall: The flavors are well balance between the sweet maltiness and the burnt finish. Not as complex as I hoped it to be but still outstanding.

From a bottle into a pint glass

A: Dark rich mahogany. Almost nothing in terms if light penetration. 1/4 inch of thick head no lace left on the glass.

S: toasted malts and molasses are the dominate aromas. Maybe some carmel notes but they are faint.

T: I get a lot of molasses and dried fruits. Also a big taste of toasted malts and a touch of hops

M: I wanted this to be a little heavier. It's thick and chewy but taste and flavor fade fast.

O: worth every pennie
