12 oz bottle poured into a Darkness snifter.
A- Pours a very dark brown color, almost black, opaque, poured a ½ finger to 1 finger tan head that dissipated quickly to a thin bubbly ring around the glass, splotchy lacing.
S- Bourbon is present but not too overpowering, slight oak aroma as well, slight roasted notes, coffee, vanilla, bitter sweetness.
T- Bourbon upfront again, I don’t get any heat as it goes down which is surprising for the amount of bourbon I’m getting, vanilla, chocolate, slight roasted malt comes out, slight coffee, some bitterness on the finish.
M- Medium/Big mouth feel, smooth drinking, coats the palate, decent carbonation, dry finish.
O- This is a solid BA beer, the bourbon is present but balanced with the roasted notes, very enjoyable beer from Central Waters, has to be one of if not the best Bourbon Barrel Aged beer that is easy to get off the shelves and cheap.

Straight to the nitty gritty: no doubt, this is good. But the thing that doesn't make it great is that it is too sweet for me.
Now that Raul has that off of his thinly sculpted sized 38 chest...
Right when Raul cracked this bad boi, the aroma was a hell of a surprise like getting a Nintendo 64 on Christmas. Bourbon, vanilla, chocolate... Like Raul was touched by an angel, or a Victoria's Secret Model, really.
Let's move on, shall we?
Even if she is devilishly beautiful, if she's too clingy, that's definitely a flaw. And with this beautiful beast, is a touch of sweetness that is a bit over the top for the Raul man.
Everything else is pretty much Thanksgiving gravy - actually, it's a bit thin in the mouth, but Raul has said his peace.
