12 oz bottle. Pours dark inky black with a wispy brown head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is nutty fudgy malts, oakey vanilla bourbon, and roast coffee with a little fruitcake.

The flavor is sweet sugary fruitcake and light bourbon with some black licorice and a heavy roast finish with a bit of an alcohol burn. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, if only it tasted as good as it smelled. It's too sweet (probably to try to get the alcohol up) with an attempt to balance with the heavy bitter roast. I don't really get any coffee flavor. Still interesting though.
