Pours a dark black color with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, alcohol, vanilla, cocoa, soy and chocolates. The flavor has vanilla, warming booze, oak and maple in the finish. Toffee, soy, chocolate, vanilla. Semi dry finish on a chewy full bodied ale. Overall this is a masterpiece, only flaw is a good degree of oxidation given its relatively young age.

Whoa, what a monster. Appearance is just a pitch black beer. Aroma is a very fragrant coffee, cocoa, vanilla, roast. Flavor's like nose with bittersweet up front, a touch of carbonic tang to help, then the loooong finish with some off notes. Body is a touch too soft. Great beer, but with some tweaks, according to my worthless opinion, could be much better.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep black body. Pours with some bubbles, but settles out quickly.

Smell - Intense bourbon. Roasty. Chocolate and fudge. Really boozy.

Taste - Man, this is good. Huge bourbon flavor. Fudge. Sweet chocolate. Incredibly boozy. Light cola flavor.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and sweet. Boozy as hell.

Overall - This is so over the top, but it's really flavorful.
