yummy in my tummy! this beer is delicious. Every time I drink it I feel just like the kid on the label looks like he feels...fulfilled. For not that expensive of a beer you get a pretty heavy full of flavor brew. The coffee flavor is evident but not overpowering, chocolate comes out right away, carbonation is just right, and the high alcohol isn't too apparent. I love this beer it's very easy to go through a four-pack in a day or so by yourself

A: Poured into snifter. Deep brown, near black. Thin tan head which dissipated quickly. I was disappointed in this. My glassware was clean, but the bottled date was nearly 10 months ago. Perhaps this is why?

S: Smells like wine/bourbon mix. I smell cherries and grapes

T: Sweet cherry wine, Toasted malts. Alcohol leaves an impression and removes these flavors quickly

M: Low carbonation. Medium bodied. Alcohol gives dry finish

O: I enjoyed this beer a lot. I think the hype around it, from BA and friends, was too high. I would like to give it another go with a fresher bottling date and see if that helps the Apperance and mouth feel. This beer's strong suits definitely come out as it warms. I would drink this around 50 next time starting out.
