Black color, beige head, medium head, apparently less carbonated. Tickling carbonation on the tongue, dark chocolate flavor, mild bourbon or rye feeling, a bit too boozy, and moderately roasty in the final. More tobacco than the Four Roses tasted side to side. Nice sweetness level. Balanced. Very nice.
