Bottle 2012. Poured black color with an average creamy brown head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla woody and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a rich smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet bourbon and chocolate cream flavor with a medium to heavy complex sweet smooth finish of moderate to long duration.
