Kentucky

4/5  rDev +3.9%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours out like really dark root beer but still opaque. Two fingers of brown suds adorn the glass and leave lacing.
Aroma is nutty malty and sugary with a slight alcohol hint.
Taste is caramel and dark chocolate with dates and a slight nuttiness. Some alcohol is here in the mouth.
Mouthfeel is a little fizzy but the alcohol keeps it mellow and sweet. The chocolate notes stick around as does the coffee bitterness. Finishes clean after the alcohol wafts away from the back of the throat.
Overall this is pretty good. For the price it's pretty good. Should be stored for a year or two.
