Pours a pitch black with mocha colored head. Fluffy, milky, head that hangs around the edge of the glass.

Nose is big vanilla, heavy oak, sweet bourbon. Slight Chocolate. Not a whole lot past the oak and vanilla.

Taste begins milky, vanilla, marshmallowy goodness. Some toasted coconut and creamy sweet chocolate take over. No noticeable bourbon burn until a sllight flash at the end. Oak and caramel and bourbon on the finish. Finishes sweet but doesn't stay very sweet too long, just the right amount of time.

Mouthfeel is rich and creamy. Slightly sticky sweet. But just enough to leave the palate wanting more.

Overall an amazing beer. Absolutely amazing.

It's as delicious and decadent as the name implies. Thick and viscous and chewy. Pours dark as obsidian, very little head. Pricey, but worth the money you spend.

650ml bomber poured into tulip 4/1/15, big cheers towards kumatmebrew for the bottle

A black right out of the bottle, a dark noisy head fizzes out quickly leaving no laced, I'm guessing this one picked up some booze in the barrel because shes got legs

S heaps of barrel, vanilla, burnt marshmallow, some sweetened coffee, nutella, booze, chocolate, smells like something I want to eat, smells like cake topping

T somehow there's even more barrel, char, burnt malt, bourbon and booze, cream added to the sweet coffee, nutty but not nutella I was smelling, a little different from the nose but still awesome

M not as thick as expect but far from thin, some heat not doubt but nothing crazy, a little oily on the palate but sticky on the lips, lots of char on the finish

O with a world class base beer this one had a great chance for success, a little boozy and perhaps it could use some cellar time to be out of this world but I'm stoked to be drinking this today

I really want one of these to age but what can you do? amazing base beer and the barrel just adds to the mix, this would be one of the best beers I've ever had after it mellows out, seek it out!!
