UPDATED: OCT 7, 2010 Draft during the 40 tap Stone Event @ Rattle n Hum with Andrew, Big Tony, PJ, and Brendan. Pours pitch black with brown chocolate lacing. Aroma is delicious bourbon, oak, sweet chocolate, roast, vanilla. Mouthfeel is smooth with the same notes. This brew reminded me somewhat of LA Angel Share.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2011 on tap at Rattle n Hum
served in a small tulip. the body is deep black that cannot be seen through up to the light. there is a small brown head that holds up well but ultimately falls to nothing leaving and oily liquid in the glass. just a few touches of lacing
the smell is rich of bourbon and chocolate. the bourbon is fairly intense and the chocolate is in between the bourbon and roast. clean smell overall
the taste is a rich chocolate bourbon blast to the face. lots of rich chocolate in the medium dark range. roastiness is there but not too much. there is a fair amount of bitterness to clean up the sweetness.
mouth feel is rich and full body. very viscous and chewy. just about perfect mouth feel.
overall this was the best beer on tap of the 40 IMO. i would love to have the chance to try this one again. this one is a bit more rich in the overall flavor department than barrel aged sexual chocolate.
EDIT rating was typo from notes

On tap at rattle n hum during the stone event with James and big T. Somewhere between bourbon barrel angel share and kbs. Less refined than both... Bitter chocolate could have something to do with it.
