2012 Version. Pours a pitch black color with a large, tan colored head that takes a little time before it goes down. A very delicious-looking beer. Scent is a very familiar bourbon aroma that I got from the 2010 Decadence bottle I had the other night. Wonder if they used the same barrels? I sure hop they did, because the bourbon/barrel on that bottle was insane! This one tends to be mellowed out in the aroma a bit by the intense coffee and chocolate scents. Fresh brewed coffee with an intense chocolate cake aroma. Not just chocolate, but definitely rich chocolate cake. This beer smells like boozy dessert. Great aroma. Taste is just as good. At first I get sweet chocolate and bitter espresso beans. The bitterness hangs around for less than 1/100 of a second, as the sweet boozy bourbon kicks in. This beer is NOT for the faint of heart. Very sweet and boozy. In my opinion, the booziness and the sweetness compliment each other very nicely. If one were lacking, this beer would not taste as great as it does. Lovely vanilla, oak, and bourbon finish. Coffee lingers on the palate. Mouthfeel is full bodied and slightly syrupy. Drinkability is fairly high. Overall, this beer would be much more drinkable if it wasn't so sweet. However, I don't think this beer was meant to be consumed in large quantities...so the sweetness is okay. This beer is fantastic and everything I hoped it would be.
