4.43/5 rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance- dark brown with some reddish tones. A couple cm of head that disappears to almost nothing.
Smell- the first smell was a blast of whiskey but there are also strong chocolate notes as well. Smells awesome.
Taste- a lot of bourbon, some chocolate and maybe a little coffee. Seems like a different taste shines through with every sip which is nice. Slightly boozy finish. If I could I'd give it a 4.8.
Mouthfeel- a little on the thin side but still manages to be creamy.
Overall- I picked up a 4 pack to throw a couple in the cellar but I might drink them all and go pick up another while they're still in stock!

Poured from bottle into Hoppin Frog snifter. Bottle date is 2013. Date of review is 3/8/14.
Appearance- Almost pitch black. Just a tiny bit of light shines through when held up to a bright light. Quarter finger of creamy tan head that disappears within a minute. Tiny little bubbles are floating up from the bottom, which is cool looking.
Smell- Bourbon and green apples right away. After that I get vanilla and smoke. This is smelling much more like a brandy-aged beer than a bourbon-aged beer.
Taste- Taste is significantly better than the nose. Bourbon and chocolate blow my taste buds apart! Smoke and vanilla are there, just like in the nose. I detect chocolate chip cookies cooked in a smoker and dipped in bourbon, and I LOVE IT!
Mouthfeel- Thick, syruppy and luscious...my mouth feels like a just ate a handful of bitter dark chocolate covered coffee beans.
Overall- Really solid beer...Is this on the same level as BA B.O.R.I.S., KBS, BA Blackout Stout or BCBS? No, of course not, but it's really good and worth trying.
