On tap at FreshCraft. Black appearance with a dissipating brown head, minimal lacing. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, sweet malts, oak, toffee/caramel and alcohol. Heavily sweet with minimal bitterness. Medium body with a slick, creamy feel and soft carbonation. Pretty good, but I prefer it unaged.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark black with a thin khaki head. Aroma was super dark and sticky with heavy notes of brown sugar, roasted dark chocolate syrup, and a little molasses. Flavor was large and delicious and thick. Lots of dark chocolate cake tones, brown sugar sweetness, a warming boozy tone like rum or bourbon, a little tone of roasted coffee, black licorice/molasses, on a sticky sweet finish that was warm and enticing with a hint of vanilla.
