Pour on tap at the Denver Rare Beer Tasting 2012, dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of dark chocolate, coffee bean, slight bourbon, oak, slight vanilla in there as well, with nice caramel and toffee as well. Taste is a nice mix of caramel, toffee, cocoa and dark chocolate, coffee, roasted coffee bean, nice oak and bourbon notes manifest also as vanilla, finishing fairly sweet and bitter.
