look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Bottle poured into teku
A: black with brown lace that leaves decent spotty legs
S: bourbon, coffee, dark chocolate, dates
T: bourbon forward like curieux. Chocolate bitterness with a bit of sweet boozy heat but not too aggressive
M: lacks a bit here, the black has thinned out from what I remember and carbonation a bit much.. Would have loved slightly thicker and less carb

Overall solid from Allagash, could drink again and again
