Poured black. Strong smell of Bourbon with hints of chocolate and cherry. The alcohol burns through at the end. It has a somewhat creamy texture, but also a bit like syrup.

Coffee and roasted smell with a touch of sweetness. Vanilla comes to mind, though that is not accurate. Pours in the tulip a nice dark color. Not a huge fan of coffee, but the coffee notes, with the sweetness mixed in made this a pleasant drink. Definitely more of a dessert style beer, and not one I could see myself drinking more than a serving of. But, high marks for delivering exactly what they labelled it as.

Petkus331 (273) - Redford, Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Aroma of sweet toffee, caramel, crème brule, and roast cereal grain. Appears nearly black brown with thick caramel foam and some lace. Tastes of good cigar smoke, roast grain, the taste is much dryer than the aroma, and finishes on a slightly bitter charred marshmallow note, this beer is absolutely beautiful! Texture is a bit oily, in a nice way, mild fizz. Overall, this beer is top notch, the texture could be more fizzy, but overall this is an amazing beer.

Tap. Dark black. Creamy tan head. Sweet nose of coffee, caramel. Tastes of burnt caramel, coffee, some rich chocolate. ABV definitely noticeable on this one, but in a good way. Surprisingly not as creamy as expected.

T- Tart up front, strawberries, raspberry peach, followed by deep coffee notes and hints of dark chocolate finished by a light hop bitterness. M- Thick with decent carbonation. D- This one may be infected, not sure it’s supposed to be sour. Will rerate should I have the chance.
