look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pour is jet black motor oil with a small amount of dark mahogany head. Nose is quite nice, lots of rich malt and a lot of wood and bourbon notes. Strong fudge and caramel. Taste is a bit more woody up front, slightly chalky malt mid palate, rich fudge quality is a touch muted, some dark berries in back and bourbon through the finish. Full bodied, dry finish, soft feel, a touch slick in back, nicely carbonated.
