look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Bottle from cracked kettle, shared with Papaeugene.
Look: The beer pours a very dark color with a dark brown head
Smell: Heavy roasted maltz, roasted, chocolate, vanilla, soy sauce, bourbon and some alcohol
Taste: Very sweet with a long coffee bitterness. Chocoalte, dark malt, bourbon, licorice and coffee. Strong bourbon and a bit too alcoholic
Mouthfeel: Medium-thick body, low carbonation
Overall: I wanted not to like this beer, just because of the “hype” name “rare”. But, have to admit, that although a bit too sweet, this beer is very nice too drink
