look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

The beer comes in a dark brown/black color.

The aroma has tons of honey sweetness along with a bit of bourbon and barrel, but mostly sweet chocolate and roasty malt.

The flavor follows of chocolate fudge, a bourbon barrel vanilla sweetness, along a lingering honey sweetness.

The body is nice and creamy.

This is a really solid beer. Not too much barrel character, but well made and that honey note is very interesting.

A - As black as it can get. Small, mocha head, some mocha lace. Head leaves fast. Pretty. LIke an espresso.

S - Gazinga. Soy, bourbon, heavy malt, booze, wood and god knows what else.

T - Flavor only enriches the smell properties. A fine quality beer.

M - Heavy body, good carb, a bit cloying, but not too bad.

D - Excellent for one. Couldn't do it all night.
