UPDATED: JUN 15, 2015 Bottle shared thanks to kermis. Almost black with short lasting beige head. Really strong bourbon up front with lots of vanilla icecream, some dark chocolate, ripe berries and dried peach, light coffee in the finish. Very sweet with soft roasted bitter finish. Medium bodied with a bit thin feel but at the same time sticky feel on the lips. Strong on the bourbon, but quite enjoyable.
