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

Bottle 495/534. Split with a friend into snifters.

A: Thick, jet black pour. Thin beige colored head that receded immediately.
S: Cognac, dark fruits, dark chocolate. Nice roasty smell too.
T: Same as the smell, cognac, dark fruits, chocolate. There is a slight metallic aftertaste, I don't know it that comes from the cognac because I have never felt anything similar in bourbon barrel beers. The metallic taste is not off-putting though, it's just something I noticed in the aftertaste.
M: Medium/full body with light carbonation. Thinner than I expected, but this just made it go down easier.
O: Excellent beer, even though I am not a fan of cognac it blends very well with the Dark Lord and creates a surprisingly drinkable, smooth beer.
