4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle: Near black in color, topped with a small tan head. Huge aroma of bourbon barrel sweetness, chocolate, and roasted malt. It swirls and swirls, if a scent could have layers this is it. It sets the tone for a rich flavor that is heavy in sweet bourbon barrel and vanilla. Lighter bittersweet chocolate and roasty notes. A very deep flavor. Really nice brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Appearance is thick black motor oil with a thick layer of mocha head. Aroma is chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Taste is oak, coffee, loads of chocolate, and vanilla. Finishes with coffee roast, and some light bitterness. Thick chewy mouthfeel. This is really good, very subtle barrel character, but lots of complex flavours from the base beer. Reminds me a lot of the abyss.
