look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Pours dark brown with 2 fingers of a light tan creamy head. Appears black in once in the glass, but when held up to light reveals hints of brown and dark ruby red.

Smell: Bourbon, caramel, toffee, chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, and a bit of coconut.

Taste: Chocolate, coffee, bourbon, roasted malt, caramelized sugar, toffee, tequila, slight earthiness.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation on the low end of medium.

Overall: Incredibly complex beer. Each smell and sip seems to yield additional flavors and aromas. This is a beer that's worth seeking out.
