Pours a dark brown almost black color with an off white head and plenty of lace. The aroma is boozy, chocolatey and big on bourbon. Smells like a hobo's breath after they have a morning mocha. Dry wood.

The taste is big on chocolate, wood, caramel apple, bourbon, a bit of yeast. Slight nutty tartness as this beer was aged in second-use barrels that held black note. Deep roast and booze.

Full bodied brew with a medium carbonation. Overall, this is a very solid beer.
