Much less sweet than I imagined it would be. Nicely balanced beer with a good chocolate character. Not incredible but very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black blacker blackest pour with very quickly dissipating tan foam. Aroma of soy sauce, barrel, some spirit, booze, choc; smells sweet. Taste is wow...lots of oak and vanilla! Almost too much vanilla! Quite sweet with some bourbon. Motor oil quality on palate with a lovely inky quality - not thin but also not full bodied. Overall, not a classic by any means but great fun to drink - just a nice sweet stout.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Iíve been sitting on this bottle since beechner224 sent it to me, glad I waited. Pours dark, thin khaki head that fades fast. Nose has a strong bourbon barrel presence, chocolate, vanilla. Taste begins sweet, bitter baking chocolate, sweet cherries, and a nice bourbon oak and vanilla. Slight smokey ness muddled in the mix but very much in the hinter ground. Body is slick and creamy, a little thin feeling but makes it very drinkable.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nose is mostly bourbon with some chocolate. Not much fruitiness. Minimal head. Lots of fruitiness in the flavor. Like a cherry skin. Less chocolate in the flavor. Light heat but mostly smooth. Moderately sweet. Really good.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: None more black. Used up motor oil with a slick, shiny, bare top, only coated with a thin tan collar around the edges. Lovely aroma that really does resemble a cherry cordial... Only if the cherry cordial were dunked in a pool of bourbon. Bittersweet, dark chocolate, cherry juice, vanillin, moderate tannic notes, & a strong woody aroma lathered with smooth bourbon. Taste is super sweet, even more than expected. Chocolate, cherry juice that starts slightly tart & transitions quickly to sweetness, caramel, liquefied brown sugar, & a strong bit of dripping wet oak in the finish. Boozy from front to back, helping to balance the sweetness a little but also waving that 15% ABV tag with pride. Yeah, this is a BIG beer. Insanely sweet & pretty goddamn boozy but nevertheless, it tastes really damn good, too. Slick, semi-creamy mouth feel. Itís things like this that are usually responsible for domestic abuse.
