Black with off white foam.

Sharp, sweet bourbon.

Coffee curbs the heat from the alcohol but not quite enough. Mix of earthy and sweet, the later from vanilla and booze as I can't pick out chocolate. Apparent alcohol's not always a turn off but this doesn't strike the right balance for me.

Not marshmallow thick.

Look is black
Smell is figgy with coco and coffee coming through
Taste is amazing! Nuttiness, slight tart, and tons of coco and coffee. The bourbon comes through with the perfect balance
Overall, amazing beer

Just like cold brew with lots of chocolate and vanilla. Mouth feel is silky and substantial. Excellent barrel character with toffee and butterscotch without the alcohol burn. No bitterness from the coffee. Easy drinking and we'll worth seeking out.
