Sampled from a 22oz bottle.

A - Black with a moderate tan head that fades quickly leaving only a nice dusting.

S - Greta bourbon and vanilla without overpowering the other notes of cocoa, dark chocolate and brown sugar.

T - Much like the aroma. Such strong flavors yet so balanced and coordinated. A slight a sweetness which helps it stand up to those strong flavors. The medley of flavors lingers nicely.

M - Thick and chewy with a low carbonation.

O - Fantastic! I love this beer!!!
