Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours black with a significant tan had. Aromas of chocolate, bourbon and alcohol. And oak. Full bodied. Flavor is vanilla chocolate with astringent oak.

The pour is black in color with a small tan head. Smells strongly of roasted malt, licorice, and char. There is definitely some booze/heat to it, too. A little bit of dark chocolate and coffee. The flavor is no more impressive. Intense roast and booze flavor with a bit of molasses and licorice. Maybe some dark chocolate and astringent coffee. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle... Pours nearly black with a small, creamy, cappuccino head. Fantastic retention. The bouquet is a luxuriant intermingling of deeply roasted malts, toasted tree nuts, moist brownies and gobs of fudge. Full-bodied and velvety with tickling carbonation. The flavor offers a boozy mishmash of bittersweet dark chocolate, singed caramel and ethanol. Finishes tongue-numbing and warming, followed by charcoal bitterness that clings to my palate for a good while. Bottle courtesy of landhoney!
