4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes. Enjoyed on September 19 at Travis’ house. Poured from a 22 oz bottle. This makes up for everything that was Even More Jesus. The pour is a thick, oily black with a dark brown cap of head and no lace as it falls to a film. The aroma is great. It’s a little hot, but that’s the only knock. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, coffee, and dark fruits. There is an obvious booze here, but the other components are just great. The flavor is big on a bourbon aspect to go with the chocolate, light roast, and solid vanilla. There is a nice sweetness on the back end that I wasn’t expecting to see. It’s almost like a dark fruit molasses. The mouth feel is thick and chewy with a soft carbonation that is just incredibly thick. The aftertaste is lingeringly roasty and boozy, with just enough sweetness to keep it from being off-putting.

Bottle shared in NH. It pours darkest brown - black with a decent light tan head. The nose is very rich, oily, big chocolate cake vibe, earth, toasty, toffee, vanilla, nougat, dark fruits and wood. The taste is slick, oily, warming alcohol upfront, toffee, chocolate, sweet bourbon, cocoa, toasted coconut, charred wood and rocky road with a warming finish. Full body and average carbonation. Big, rich and decadent. Pretty punchy and warming stuff. Nice.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle shared in Canaan, NH. Big thanks to Dander for tracking this down. Pours oily black with a creamy brown head. Big aroma, lots of vrownies, chocolate, roast. Medium to big sweet flavor, some burnt wood, scorched earth, lots of layered chocolate, some burnt marshmallows, light vanilla. Full bodied, chewy, with fine carbonation. Warming finish, buckets of chocolate, some ripe dark fruits, raisins, some wood, slight twisted caramel, coconut, vanilla, more brownies. Well, just immensely layered. Quite chocolatey. Great barrel integration. Very potent, but still really dribkable. Outstanding.
