A- Pours a dense very dark brown/ black with hints of brown around the edges. A small beige colored head recedes to just a ring around the edge of the glass. Nice lacing as I swirl.

S- Liquid chocolate, natural raw honey (even has that weird stink to it), marshmallow, and caramel focused bourbon. Bold. Great aroma.

T- Mirrors the nose very well. The honey, marshmallow and chocolate really stand out in this one. The bourbon compliments everything with some presence on the back-end with some oak tannins and heat.

M- Full bodied and really smooth. Like silk.

O- I was surprised at how good this one was. I knew it was highly rated, but this is one of the best beers I've had in the past year. Packs a lot of flavor into an 8.5% alcohol beer. Great job Olde Hickory!
