4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour pitch black, with a huge slightly fizzy tan head, that turns into a small ring of creaminess.
Aroma of bourbon, slight dark fruits, roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, some green notes as well, booze, slight banana. Some faint hints of the syrup (not enough, if you ask me) - but becomes more and more present as this bad boy warms up)
The taste is sweet upfront, with some roasty and slightly bitter aftertaste. Semi-full body, with a rather flat carbonation. This really envovles in the glass. Big thanks to Ryan for sending me this.

Bottle shared at RBWG-JAX. Black pour with a nice tan head. Rich aroma shows char, charcoal, whiskey, berries, dark fruit, tobacco, wood, and oh so much more. The flavor shows a smooth but bitter kick, more of that char, wood, roasted malts, dark fruits, and more. Delish!
