Can see a little light getting through the edges and the mouth feel is a tad thin. But I could sit here and nose fuck the shit out of this glass and taste is on point!!!

It's not often when I can say that I find absolutely no faults in a beer. I have had somewhere around 4000 beers in my career and this one easily stands as one the best.

Intense coffee fudginess and bourbon on the nose. The fudge flavors really come through along with coffee cream, maple syrup, good quality vanilla and smoky bourbon notes. The flavors on this one all blend together so perfectly well making it a great beer for the morning or a delectable dessert treat.

My only regret is that this beer is not more regularly available as I would like to cellar some and share some more with friends in the future.
