This one pours a fairly dark black color, with a fluffy mocha colored head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like dark fruit and cherry, roasted malt, super roasty coffee, boozy bourbon, and oak.

This has a touch much booziness, but the big dark fruit flavor is lovely here. There's a lot of coffee type flavor, even with no coffee added, and a pretty big oakiness. The bourbon seems to be the carrier and originator of the big booziness here.

This is medium bodied and very creamy, with the feel of a definite slow sipper, as the boozy bitternes lingers a touch.

This has some nice notes, but I'd want a bit of the booziness toned down a touch.

Rich, chocolate, with just the right amount of bourbon. Develops nice flavor as it warms.
