look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured 12 oz bottle into snifter.

A- Pours black with little light around the edge. Thin dark brown head. Leaves rather fast with small amount of lacing.

S- Lots of roasted chocolate throughout the nose. Good amount of bourbon fills the nose in the middle. Bit of sweet vanilla at the end, but just a tad.

T- Boozy bourbon flavors take over up front. Chocolate taste tries to cut into and fight the bourbon off. Flavors fade pretty fast into a dull chocolate with a small of amount of sweet vanilla.

M- Not quite full body. Low carbonation. A little dry in the mouth.

O- Nice overall beer. Nothing spectacular, but still good. Would want a little more out of the flavors in the beer though.
