Alcohol, bourbon, and hints of chocolate and coffee greet the nose. It pours brilliant dark brown under a 1” very finely bubbled tan head that dissipates to a thick film. The palate mirrors the nose with bittersweet chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and alcohol. Its surprisingly dry for such a big beer and finishes with some bitter chocolate astringency. Very rich and creamy, full bodied to chewy with a pleasing alcohol warmth. This is a good beer but the chocolate and the coffee are almost too dry and intense. It might be more drinkable if it were dialed back just a hair but on the other hand, I do like it.

A-black with a brown head that leaves a heavy lace
S-bourbon, coffee and hops with some alcohol aroma
T-hops, coffee and malt is heavy at first, then comes the bourbon aftertaste with a good alcohol waming with both lasting til the end
M-full body, sticky, and medium carbonation
O-balance is great with this beer. The hops, malt, bourbon, and alcohol warmimg balance this beer out where nothing was overpowering.

Poured into a Due South Brewing Co. snifter. Bottleneck says Bottled on 03/13/13.

A- Pours an ominously opaque black color with an 1/8 inch light brown head that barely retains before becoming a thin ring around the edge of the glass and some light, wispy surface foam. Non-resilient lacing leaves a thick ring behind.

S- Heavy dark roast aroma with some solid coffee and oak aromas. Slightly sweet, chocolaty and has a slight nutty quality.

T- More dark roast with some more subtle oak flavors plus chocolate, coffee and vanilla in the aftertaste. Very smooth with the high ABV being hardly noticeable. Ends up being a bit on the sweet side which is fine.

M- Thick and slightly syrupy. Medium-low carbonation with an extremely full body.

O- I gotta hand it to Brash, their extreme beers are pretty impressive with the exception of their Cold Ass Honky Saison.
