Smell is dark malt and smells aged with some bourbon. Taste is bitter dark chocolate. Like 80 percent cacao. Bitter dry and cacao finish with warmth but no booze and some bourbon flavor. Good stuff. Creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle: Thanks, Jason! Deep brown body, never truly reaching "full black" status with an off-tan foam that settles to a collar within moments. Aroma has some sweet whiskey, chocolate brownie cake, fudge, creamy oats, & some oak-laden tannins in the finish. Lovely aroma from the start; as it warms up, a mild fusel note becomes apparent, but not enough to spoil the show. Big roasted malt flavor up front; nice dark cocoa flavors, like an Intense Dark 86% chocolate bar... Trailing notes of whiskey, oak, vanillin, creamy malts, & integrated tannins lead into a roasty finish with slight hints of coffee, cocoa beans, burnt caramel, & booze. Very nice beer, I think I preferred this to the Vanilla & Pirate Noirs.

Bottle to glass. Near oil black pour with a thin dark khaki head that recedes along the circumference of the glass. Nose is sweet oak, milk chocolate, whisky. Slight booze. insanely smooth mouth feel, sweet milk and dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, and a slightly boozy whisky finish. Nutty coffee finish. Very nice.

Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, vanilla, caramel, spice, and light bourbon. It pours a dark brown with some orange highlights around the edges of the glass. It has a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a thin ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate, molasses, and a touch of caramel. The finish has light-moderate roasted coffee and a touch of whiskey. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
