2013 bottle, poured into Sexual Chocolate teku glass

A- pours pitch black with a small light tan creamy head that reduces to a ring, leaving just a few patches of lace

S- prominent barrel aroma with bourbony oak, sweet molasses, toffee, fig & raisin and a hint of vanilla

T- bourbon and oak up front that compliments the base beer very well, really bringing out the molasses flavor. Good chocolaty base with dark fruit notes, leading to a finish of oak, bourbon and vanilla

M- medium body and carbonation, foamy mouthfeel that leads to a smooth and slightly warming finish, abv is hidden pretty well

O- the bourbon is nearly perfectly integrated with an already solid base beer. I wasn't blown away by the original Sexual Chocolate, but I was really impressed by this version
