2.65/5  rDev -36%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1 | overall: 3

L - pitch black with less than a finger of tan head

S - Charred oak, bourbon, smoke, tobacco

T - A turn for the worse I'm afraid. Everything is subdued and bitter. Bitter dark chocolate, small oak, an unpleasant black licorice, almost no bourbon

F - Watered down and tepid. This is an 11.20% stout? Has the feel of a bad porter at best.

O - Disappointing. An unpleasant array of diluted flavors and a thin mouthfeel.

Pours a dark brown colour, black when not up to the light. Head is beige, visible bubbles just crowding around the edges. Speckly lace. Looks alright.

Smells strong and pungent. Big kind of cognac character blending with coffee, raising toast that's slightly charred and a touch of aloe vera. Not sure what to make of it, but it's quite impressive.

Taste is rich; chocolatey and sweet. Lots of complex sugars giving raisin, sherry and brown sugar with a thick chocolate fondant richness but without the sweetness, and a distinctive Courvoisier strength. Refined, but pungent as fuck. It's sweet, but intelligent; a thinking man's beer, good for destroying a few of those thinking cells.

Little drying on the back. Full, smooth on the front. Booze is a drying agent rather than a big, hot pungency.

Strong, mighty beer. One might almost call it 'heroic' if one were a complete tool.
