Shared by Dak @ his Final Four Tasting. Squid ink pour with a dark caramel head. The glass literally looked like it was filled with cola after the brew was gone...stained it like crazy. Aroma showed tons of bakerís chocolate, rich roasted coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and char. Flavor is filled with sweet bourbon, dark fruit, molasses, burnt caramel, toasted marshmallow, and vanilla. Chewy...and Iím sure my tongue is near black after drinking this. Yum!
