4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Appearance: oily black with very small dark mocha head that dissipates quickly to almost nothing. Aroma: big dark chocolates, deep roasted malts, oak, vanilla, dark fruit, no bourbon or booziness really at all. Taste: sweet dark fruitiness up front with bitter dark chocolate coming in and very sweet molasses, vanilla, and bourbon notes in the end and a sugary and coffee bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel: very creamy and slick thick with very little carbonation. Overall: the alcohol doesn't announce itself like you might expect. The sweetness is a bit heavy, but I think that's where the bourbon and booze is shining through. Looking forward to trying again with some age.

Bourbon and chocolate aroma. Tan head with a lasting ring, no lacing. Soft creamy palate. Huge bourbon aftertaste. Overall very strong. All in all ok. Might be awesome after some aging.

This was really good. I was expecting something way more boozy at 17%. Get it if you can.
