Large shared bottle.
Smells very good and tastes even better, with a clear but not overdone contribution from the bourbon barrel aging, good balance and complexity.
Sweet full body.

I don't think it pours as dark as everyone says. I certainly don't think that light disappears into it like a black hole, and there even seems to be a slight purple/reddish ting around the edges.

The nose is bourbon and dark malts. Sort of like what I wish my wife smelled like after work. Some caramel notes.

Taste is bourbon and dark malts. Sort of like what I wish my wife tasted like after work. A little oaky, touch of cake.

Feel is smooth and silky, not to thick, not to thin. Sort of like what I wish my wife felt like after work.
