4.15/5  rDev +0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - pours a rich near black, with a beautiful dark chocolate finger+ of head, decent retention, decent lacing.

S - lots of rich chocolate, oak, some vanilla and booze. Really nice balance of the four.

T - some sweet chocolates and tons of dark fruit, plenty of oaky booze and some vanilla. Dry boozy/fairly bitter at the finish. (Let sit for about 30 minutes to warm up). The first cold sip I initially took was much sweeter when poured fresh

M - medium bodied+, not too heavy, less but appropriate carbonation,very smooth.

O - very good i was pretty blown away by the first sip, after letting it warm up for a bit boozyness and especially dark fruits dominate. Eventually bitterness and sweetness disappear
