look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

Pours an opaque black with a crema-like, foamy tan head and lots of lacing. Aroma is rich and roasty with sweet molasses, dark fruit, vanilla and wood. Black coffee and burn toast up front in flavor, followed by strong, dark-chocolate and a real vanilla-caramel sweetness that reminds me of some kind of baked-good. A complex medley of flavors lingers on the palate long after each sip. A full, creamy body and perfect carbonation make up the mouthfeel, followed by an alcoholic warmth from the whiskey barrel.

For the style, I feel that this is a nuanced, welcome escape from the norm, and a bit sweeter than most.
