First off, a cursory glance at reviews suggests that the bottled version does not hold up nearly as well as the draught. Here's no exception: I immenseley enjoyed the tap version I had last night.
Ap: Very dark, nearly opaque with flecks of red. Extremely thin tan lace atop.
S: Madagascar vanilla, amaretto, coffee liqueur, dark chocolate.
T: Impossibly smooth: notes of almond, mocha, kahlua, and an oaky, woodsy finish of quality bourbon whisky to balance the sweetness.
P: Totally smooth and efortlessly drinkable. The subtle notes of the finish keep on going long after I set the glass down.
O/D: A noble brew. Very rich but eminently drinkable. Beware, though: the 8.5% will sneak up on you. Highly recommended.
Serving type: on-tap

On the rare occasions i buy beer, i buy craft. When I'm not drinking bourbon from the state of kentucky, i drink stouts from kentucky. Very good flavor. not good at picking up flavors. I just know i love this. I buy craft mainly to support microbreweries. Macrobreweries make low quality beers and charge an arm and a leg for them sometimes. Microbreweries make good quality beer for a similar price. The appearance is nice and dark. the smell is amazing, and the taste is also amazing. Mouthfeel is very complex but can't describe it. I had cigars while i was drinking this one. might be why i couldnt pick out any flavors.
