Bottle. Pours a clean black with a dark brown head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a really nice whiskey note that works with a combination of smooth chocolate and roasted malts. Flavor starts with sweet chocolate and a hint of marshmallow, but finishes with roasted malts and a nice whiskey note.

Thanks Robertdale. Rich black pour with a brown head. Aroma is oatmeal, roasted malt, slight bourbon. Taste is creamy, light whiskey, oatmeal. Low carbonation. A thick beer. Oak flavor comes at the finish bringing out a dry mouth feeling. A very tasty beer that I drank slow because I only had the one bottle. Lacing shown on each sip. The beer clings to the glass.
