look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from a 375ml, hilariously labeled bottle into a snifter.

Appearance is a black, oily color with a light brown head that quickly dissipates leaving an oily slick on the top of the beer.

The nose is full of bourbon, dark fruit, chocolate, and a little smokiness.

The taste is a confusion of the brandy and the bourbon. There are strong vanilla notes but this beer is confusing me as to what it wants to be. The dark fruits come out mid palate.

I kind of wanted more viscosity from this beer, it seemed a tad thin. At the same time, the carbonation was spot on.

All in all, kinda wish I let this one ride a little more. I think it will figure itself out with age and actually get a job.
