Thanks bierkoning! Opaque black color, small steady beige head. Apple, bourbon alcohol in the nose. Full-bodied, sticky. Loads of bourbon, not much vanilla. Strong roast, sweetness. A bit messy but otherwise another good impy from Menno.

Bottle, 11/23/2013. Pours thick dark brown, nearly black, dense mocha tan head fades to swirl on the surface, decent build-up of lacing. Aroma is chocolate brownie, sweet syrupy fruit, mild roast with gentle bourbon finish, understated. Taste is dark chocolate, rich berry, fruity character, with coffee, hoppy bitter undertones, touch of bourbon in the finish, a bit hot. Thick, creamy body, smooth. Well done.
