A - Pours pitch black with a thick toffee lacing ring.

S - Light bourbon, oak, and dark chocolate.

T - Nice blend of dark chocolate, bourbon, oak, and vanilla with a lingering dark bitter chocolate and bourbon finish. No burn or warming on the way down.

M - Medium heavy body, velvet smooth on the palate.

O - This is a really enjoyable beer, wish I picked up more bottles.

750 ml bottle at the brewery - in November 2014 so a year aged. Poured into snifter.

Black in color, nice tan colored head. As the beer warms up, the flavors really stand out and are very pleasing. Vanilla, oak, mildly roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Very smooth and balanced flavors. Mouthfeel is nice - lower carbonation and thick enough body.
