Pours a medium thick viscous black with a slight and quickly disappearing head. Aroma of bourbon and caramel-chocolate, not overpowering in any way. Creamy chocolate flavor, and very very smooth. Thoroughly enjoyed this one.

Lacking in many aspects. Looked thin, drank thin and had a bitter'ish flavor to it that really put me off. Also, first sip revealed a thick, slimy glob slipping into my mouth. Disgusting. Don't know what it was as I promptly spit it out.
