Poured from a bottle dated Feb. 10, 2016. The beer pours black with a huge, thick, foamy tan head that coated the glass in lacing.

The smell is dominated by coffee, but I'm also getting some bourbon, which may just be the wood chips and dark malts. There is also chocolate on the nose.

The taste is also dominated by coffee, but there is a nice dark, bittersweet chocolate and dark malt flavor that balances very well. There is a lingering, bitter coffee afteraste.

The mouthfeel is smooth like velvet and reasonably thick.

Overall a great beer. The afteraste is a bit like burnt espresso after a while and becomes a little much, but the overall look and taste are great.
