4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Black. Good sized frothy creamy frothy medium brown head, fairly lasting with some lace. Aroma is roasty, chocolatey, a little ash, along with some soft subtle bourbon. Lighter full body. Creamy and ultra smooth. Flavor explodes! Roasty coffee. Dark chocolate. Ash. Extraordinarily smooth bourbon. Some alcohol warmth, but no booze whatsoever. Phenomenal balance. Fantastic! Way exceeded my expectations.
