05/2016 - The nose is super hot, with some dark chocolate, a crap ton of bourbon, and some vanilla; the palate is super boozy, with more bourbon, chocolate, and roast than the original; the finish is way too thin to make this super good. It's fun to try, but one and done for me.

Shared from a 750mL, thanks Tom for sharing this.

Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with a small brown head that reduces to nothing.

Aromas are boozy but inviting, cocoa and dark chocolate, dark fruits, chocolate liquor. Taste is rich, so much flavor here with fudge, rich chocolate cake, chocolate liquor, boozy dark fruits, finishing lightly bitter. Mouthfeel is rich and thick, low carbonation.
