Black, opaque, thin tan head. Faint bourbon, oak, chocolate, coffee and alcohol. Taste dominated by alcohol, followed by coffee, oak and subtle dark chocolate, with a super thick creamy mouthfeel. Cheers!

Hype beer. Avoid the strangling drama of this brew.

Had a vertical from fresh to 5 year aged. All were unimpressive and considerably overblown.

One positive note is that the ABV is in double digits, so you might forget the mediocrity after 2 or 3.
