Pours a black as night color. Mocha colored head that doesn't stick around too long. Decent sized ring around the edge. Great lacing.

Smell is of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, marshmallows, oak, and bourbon. In short: holy crap. This is awesome.

Taste begins with coffee. Mellows into a bitter chocolate with lots of vanilla. Finishes with booze and oak. The coffee, chocolate and a bourbon flavor lingers long after the finish.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. It's like a liquid bourbon marshmallow.

Overall this beer is simply amazing.
