Epic pour - deep dark black with a mushroom cloud head. You could scoop it off with a spoon if you were so inclined. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malt and leather. Taste is warm chocolate, charred toast, roasted nuts, coffee, light bourbon and vanilla. Honey adds a bit of sweetness but I wouldn't have known it was there if I hadn't read it. Would've liked a little more punch on the bourbon-back end. Oustanding beer at a hefty price. Meets but does not exceed expectations.

look: Looks like the other variants. Gorgeous dark dark brown, nearly opaque. Some cola highlights. Big ass tan head for a nearly 12%'r and thick creamy lacing.
smell: Stellar like the other variants I've had. A hint of booze, in a honey roasty milkshake.
taste: does not lose anything to the nose. Like the other variants there's a chewy fudgey thing happening. So mellow and easy drinking. Very nice indeed.
