Black pour, less deep than the base version. Aroma was nice, heavily roasted, mild chocolatey bourbon aroma was after it.

Taste had some harshness from the bitter roast that came off like dark fruit past its prime, getting that nail polish heat and old fruit funk.

Updated: This pours jet black with a cocoa colored cap. Get a big molasses note on the aroma. There’s a long, lingering finish and a hint of orange peel buried under the cocoa roasty character. The beer is heavy with a touch of heat, but exceptionally well balanced and well blended.

This pours a jet black color with thin foam. There’s a great aroma of coffee and dark chocolate, some booze. The heat kicks in when sipped, a great warming boozy bourbon taste that tickles the tinge and lasts for days. Yowza!
