Pours a motor oil color. Has a boozy sweet aroma with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Flavor is sweet, you get notes of vanilla, chocolate and bourbon. Leaves a warm boozy mouth feel. Overall I feel the hype didn't help this beer. It's very nice, for me it's similar to a ba Dark app with a little less vanilla and booziness.

2014 split 4 ways into snifters amongst family. Deep black, with dark brown head. Smells of black molasses. Taste is molasses and sugar. Slight heat from the alcohol on the back end. Vanilla and dark wood. Very big beer, so many flavors. Evolves nicely as it warms.

The time has come
To say fair's fair
To pay the rent
To pay our share

The time has come
A fact's a fact
It belongs to them
Let's give it back
