Poured from the bottle into an FO 2016 glass. Nose is vanilla, chocolate fudge, toffee, marshmallow. Rich mouthfeel; viscous. Palate has lots of vanilla and chocolate, followed by marshmallow and some coffee. (I suspect the coffee is falling off, but I can't be sure as I didn’t get to have it fresh.) Terrific beer; my only complaint is that is has a bit of a syrupy/molasses-like element to it, which I recall Red Eye November having as well. Some might like this but it make it a little too rich for me.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a Bottle Logic tulip glass. Acquired in a trade.

Pours a thick, inky black body with a one finger mocha colored head that reduces slowly to leave a ring of foam.

I allowed this to warm to room temperature before reviewing, as this is when the most flavors came out and it was at its best. I'd recommend doing the same!

On the nose is straight marshmallow vanilla bourbon, with chocolate and light coffee lingering in the background. So much marshmallow!!

On the tongue is sweet vanilla-chocolate upfront, followed by thick, rich marshmallow-cream, rocky road brownies. Finishes with more sweet vanilla, and a light amount of coffee and roast. Mouthfeel is thick and velvety with low carbonation.

Wow.. this a straight vanilla marshmallow bomb with perfect mouthfeel. My favorite BL to date.
