Jet black appearance. The wax from the bottle smells amazing..tempted to chew it like the wax candy from the 70s. Big bold imperial stout flavor with a nice bourbon coating on my tongue, with the hazelnuts on the back end. A bit hot (hey dummy, its 18.5%), but hidden well for the percentage.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thick black pour with thin to no brown head, aroma is nutella-like, with big sweet hazelnut, chestnut, cocoa powder, lots of vanilla, bourbon, hints of oak, slight coffee and dark fruit as well. Taste is a mix of sweet vanilla, caramel, molasses, dark fruit, nutty notes into bourbon, slight booze but really not bad for the ABV, finishing very sweet. It’s a bit much, but I dig it.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from The Bruery. Pours near black with almost no head and a massive alcohol aroma. There is a fruity treacle flavor with a hint of hazelnut and a very warm alcohol trail. Burns the palate, but a very nice sipper.
