COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
At 10.5% abv this black as night ale is aged in Four Roses Bourbon Barrels for 6 months. The Bourbon Character of the barrels comes through nicely and pairs exquisitely with the rich dark malt flavors of coffee and chocolate. This is a rich beer that is made to be a full palate experience. Pair this one with a piece of dark chocolate or a side car of a nice bourbon and your night will be complete.

Level 42 Bottleshare. Thanks to Matteo. Almost opaque dark brown beer, thin pale tan head. Palate is softish with reasonable fine carbonation. Mellow dark chocolate malts. Fruity bourbon, quite mellow. Mild alcohol spice. Fairly dry finish. Long chocolate bourbon linger. Slightly thin feeling but nicely flavoured.

Bottle care of Matteo. It pours black with a thick tan head. The aroma is rich, sweet, filthy, unctuous, vanilla, nougat, toasted marshamallow, nougat and roasted malt. The taste is smooth, rich roasted, dark chocolate, vanilla, toasted coconut, dark chocolate bounty bar and some warming alcohol with a slick finish. Medium body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Rich and decadent. Nice juan.
