Pours a jet black with a one finger milk chocolate colored head. Bigger bubbles hug the outer rim with a smooth cloud like appearance in the middle. Looks soft and inviting. Sticky circle lacing forms down the glass. Vanilla soaked oak with a touch of booziness. Woody and earthy. Dark fruit notes that almost take on a tart like aroma. Booze becomes more apparent as it warms.
Vanilla and chocolate flavors. Bourbon soaked oak barrels really impart a nice flavor to this beer--they actually take over most of the subtle flavors that could potentially come out. Slight dark fruit notes with a touch of licorice round out the flavors. A bit thin on the palate with most of the flavors dropping off quickly leaving only the bourbon and fading vanilla notes legging it out to the finish. Quite smooth, however, with a soft and pleasing finish. I was looking for a bigger beer with a full bodied mouthfeel. RIS at 8%? That's the first interesting thing. Unfortunately this barely touches a medium body and is actually a tad watery in my opinion. Nice try by Weyerbacher, but I was expecting more for the price tag and the style.
