Poured a black body with minimal offwhite head that sticks around for awhile. The aroma has woody, vanilla, booze, some lactic qualities, bits of roasted and chocolate notes as well. It is a smooth, creamy, lactic beer that balances a roasted finish with notes of chocolate and booze and even has hints of vanilla and dark fruits (figs/raisins). Well-balanced and easy to drink and hides the booze well.

Pours dark brown. thin, short, foamy brown head that fades fast.

Smells roast malt, coffee, light chocolate, bourbon and vanilla.

Taste is a punch of bourbon character and sweet roast malt. Fades to coffee, chocolate and light vanilla finishes semi sweet with vanilla and a light alcohol burn. Medium body and smooth lower carbonation

Definitely tasted the bourbon and the coffee. Not sure about the chocolate. Overall I liked this beer a lot. Very flavorful. I'd seek it out again in the future.
