Bomber poured into pint glass
Pours a jet black with some brightness on the edges. A ebony quick fading head leaves nothing behind. Smell is full of dark chocolate and bourbon. Hints of sweet vanilla comes through as it warms. Taste is bitter with dark chocolate and roasted coffee. Some sweetness from plums and sugar are present but dominated with the bitterness. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Overall this is impressive. Very good tasting and smooth. I think it can use a little more aging though to mellow the bourbon.
