The pour results in a dark brown/black oil slick with tan foam and light lacing.

The nose imparts a lot of oak, mixed with toffee, alcohol phenols, caramel, roast, and slight char.

The taste mirrors the nose with an emphasis on the bourbon and toffee.

Mouthfeel is on the thin side of what I prefer, but it sits well and keeps this very drinkable.

Overall, No single part is overwhelmingly fantastic, but when combined in the whole- this is truly a great beer. Very enjoyable.

I had this on tap at the pre-Dark Lord party, so I bought a few bottles and aged them. I thought the beer was decent when I had it on tap, but something is very wrong with the bottle version.

Appearance - The most appropriate part of the beer was the appearance. Brownish-black with a vey modest head was the appearance. Did I mention that I needed a chisel to get the wax off the bottle?

Smell - I first I noticed the bourbon, but then it was not quite bourbon. There was something lime-like about the aroma.

Taste - The booze came to the front with some chocolate and coffee, but then there was this intolerable lime taste. What the hell happened to this once good beer. I could not continue. It was a dumper.

Mouthfeel - It had the thickness of a stout, but not the taste.

Overall - I had this on tap and thought it was pretty good. I don't know what happened to the bottle. And I still have another bottle.
