4.07/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Nearly black with no head; and actually decent lacing

S: Tons of whiskey, oak, dark fruits, molasses; it is roasty and vinous with coffee and chocolate undertones; this smells so boozy and awesome

T: So vinous and boozy and oaky with similar flavors to the aromas: molasses, raisins, chocolate, coffee; this beer just gets better as it warms

F: The mouth feel is obviously a bit strange since it is purposefully (?) under-carbonated; it's fairly chewy but the lack of carbonation does make it a touch thin

O: This is a fantastic beer; the mouthfeel takes some getting used to, but it grows on you as it warms; really a nice beer
