Appearance - The beer was a dark brownish black color with a very modest white head.

Smell - The booze jumps out as part of the aroma. As the same time one really notices the malt.

Taste - The booze is noted but it is not overpowering. The sweet malts leave an impression, aligning with notes of sweet dark fruits and malts. Toward the back the back, the booze becomes more apparent. I had one of these in July and did not like it as much as I do not. I well balanced bourbon aged beer.

Mouthfeel The mouthfeel is smooth is little carbonation. The bourbon is quite smooth, and is far from hot. No burning of the alcohol is noted.

Overall - This is not a elite beer, but I would certainly drink it again.

Really dark, thick, and totally crazed malt concoction. So malty and rich and alcoholic, it's ridiculous. Vast aromatics of malt roasting and burning with alcohol fumes rising to the brain.

My wife and I took sips-- "Licorice," I say. "Molasses," she says. Intensely sugary with deeply roasted and even charred flavors. Massive burnt sugar and a bitter aftertaste. There must be some hops in this to slightly balance the malty sweetness.

It's hard to rate this for "drinkability" or even "sippability," but if you think of this as a liqueur it makes more sense. The candy-like quality is part of the charm. Purchased the bottle over a year ago at Grapevine Liquor in Denver. If any beer can take a little aging, this is one.
