Black look, quickly disciplining brown head. Wow, as soon as I barely unscrew this the aroma hits my nose. Strong bourbon on the nose. Strong dark fruit presence. Chocolate, more milky rather than dark chocolate in the smell. Dark steeping malty aroma. Taste. Strong alcohol taste up front and throughout. Big bourbon. Next to that there a not quite substantial dark chocolate taste. A bitterness from both the chocolate and hops. This one begs to go with food, dessert. Mouthfeel, carbonation bites at the roof of the mouth pretty strongly. Maybe swirl this in your glass a bit. Overall, the alcohol on this one really needs to mellow. Gonna let them sit for some more months. I'd suggest letting this warm all the way to room temp even. It's pleasant on the aroma, but kinda smothers the taste.

From a colorful 16 ounce screwtop can into a mini-nonic. The packaging is busy but hard to mistake.

Wispy mocha head that dissipates a bit too quickly. Doesn't show much carbonation in the body. Very viscous-looking or coffee-like.

Smells chocolatey, boozy, vanilla and toffee. Oak strong.

Interesting flavor. A bit hot with the booze but still chocolatey, molasses-like, and a bit of Dr. Pepper or Coke like flavor. A coffee flavor starts to linger on my tongue and with vanilla and a solvent-like sweetness. The flavors seem a bit haphazardly brought together but they're nice.

As for feel, it's a bit hot and a pretty damn bitter, which somewhat undoes the smoothness and drinkability. The carbonation is almost nil so it helps to up the mouthfeel and give it some good viscosity. Yet it still feels a tad thin.

Plenty to like here but it's a bit scatterbrained.
