A: pitch black with a 1-finger tan head; quickly dissipates after pour. Typical stout.

S: Spicy; oaked. Resembles a heavily oaked red wine.

T: Spicy; cinnamon and licorice blended with dark chocolate. Maple syrup. Alcohol as an aftertaste.

M: Creamy but not to thick. Bitter hops is a prominent aftertaste and lasts.

O: A great beer; Spicy and malty. Definitely flavors you wouldn't experience in a typical stout. On the pricey side, but worth it.

Trade from burg at the Swamp Head release. Thanks! Pours black with no head, not as thick as a stout but not thin either. Big bourbon vanilla aroma with some black licorice and chocolate. Thick velvety mouthfeel with nearly no carbonation at all. Thicker than it looked on the pour wow. Big sweet vanilla oak. Lots of bourbon. Definite bit of licorice and hints of cocoa. Lingering and long ladting vanilla on the palate. Lots going on here and a surefire sipper. Old Viscosity was decent, but this really takes it to a new level. Awesome beer.
