Sampled at brewpub in Chicago. It came in the glass very black. No visible head by the time it got to me. Nose of chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon. Full in body with a boozy mouth feel. Flavor is very rich and the chocolate malts vanilla are about right, and there is a bitter sweet finish. Very well done and quite delicious.
