Smell : bourbon, coffee, chocolate
Taste: sweet chocolate, alcohol. This ale caused an immediate alcohol rush. Horehound, pepper and vanilla. The vanilla wasn’t really apparent until the ale had a chance to warm a bit.
Look: viscous, opaque near black with a thin dark mocha head that dissipated quickly.
Feel: smooth, only enough carbonation to say there was some.

Overall: I should have bought several bottles when I found it. Really special stuff.

There is nothing about this beer that I can complain about. Its stellar on every rateable facet. Somehow, however it's just not cohesive to me and it's just not what I wanted it to be.

If there's anything it could be docked for it's being overly sweet.
