#41 version

L: Jet black, no lacing bascially no head

S: Coffee dominates. No bourbon detected. Dark roast malts.

T: Well balanced, slight carbonation. Nice blend of bourbon and coffee. Bourbon is subtle and not overwhelming. Dark chocolate present. As it warms the bitterness comes out.

F: Smooth

O: A really nice beer. Nothing jumps out or dominates. The bourbon, coffee and chocolate are well integrated. The beer is almost too smooth w/o any high notes. Can a beer be too well integrated? This opinion might be a consequence of trying Lost Abbey Deliverance two nights before.
