L: Pours a pitch black with very small tan head and very little lacing on the glass.

S: Notes of rich dark chocolate, earthy roast coffee, followed by notes of vanilla, a bit of dark stone fruit and bourbon. Very complex and very inviting.

T: Rich dark chocolate, roasted malt and a bit of smoke, mingles with earthy roast chocolate, a small note of sweet vanilla, dark stone fruit and vanilla, very complex with lots of different things going on but it blends together very well.

F: Big body, creamy but some acid from the bourbon.

O: Excited to finally try this and it fully lived up to the hype.

I received a 750ml of this gem from my uncle the inimitable keith40. This was poured aggressively into a tulip glass that yielded a khaki tan head to go with a dark brown color. The nose was toasted coffee, dark cocoa, and woodsy vanilla. Served at 55 degrees, this was smooth and balanced, chocolate and roasted coffee are on the front with a delicious boozy bourbon and vanilla finish... What a brew!
