look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5
Appearance - Jet black with skinny brown head.
Smell - Bourbon, butterscotch, chocolate and caramel.
Taste - Bourbon, bourbon, and more bourbon. Dry honey, butterscotch, vanilla, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee and lots of caramel and toffee sweetening the burn. As to be expected with bourbon, plenty of alcohol present in the flavor.
Mouthfeel - Full-bodied. Sticky, a little syrupy. Bourbon burn is present throughout.
Overall - This stuff is pretty amazing, but I can really only take one a night. It's kind of like a bourbon & caramel ice cream shake with a looootttt of bourbon.
I like it!
A completely different beast from Blackout Stout (which is still a great beer).
