Appears pitch black with razor thin collar. Nose is bourbon forward with nice accents of oak and vanilla. Boysenberry comes through and brings on some jammy notes. This pairs with some dark chocolate. Taste is smooth with slight acidity from the fruit. The bourbon smooths everything out. This beer feels bigger than mean gene, perhaps it's just batch variation. Low carbonation. Definitely tasty!
