look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a white capped 22oz bottle (Batch 6 - 2012 according to this site)

A: Deep black with thin mocha colored head that quickly disappates

S: Bourbon! Very upfront but not overwhelming, a little oaky. Gives way to chocolate, vanilla, and oats. Definitely a hint of molasses sweetness there too.

T: Similar to the aroma. Bourbon upfront, with chocolate, vanilla and oats. Some coffee like bitterness on the end. Nicely balanced but the longer you drink it the more overpowering the bourbon becomes.

M: Slightly thick and chewy, Creamy and smooth, a very slight ting from the alcohol.

Very good beer! Just wish it was a little easier to find and cheaper (runs about $18-20 in these parts)
