Poured from bomber into snifter. Dark brown/ black with light brown head thay diminishes quickly. Smell is lots os sugar, syrup, and toasted malt with a little bourbon (my brother: "I can smell the barrel"). Taste is very sweet, with some chocolate and faint bourbon flavors, and some roasted coffee in the finish. Feel is a little thin for the style/ abv, but by no means unpleasant. Overall, its not bad. Definitely not the best, but solid.

AWISLguy (3442) - Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle from Ray’s in Tosa. Pours black (yes - as night) (as coal) with a brown head leaving streaky lacing. Aroma is big heavy vanilla-y bourbon. Later in the glass, there is caramel and chocolate. Taste has vanilla, bourbon, some chocolate, light roast, a hint of cherry and a - late showing under the bourbon - decent caramel malt presence. Full bodied and alcoholly. Finishes sweetly bourbon caramelly, with a slight touch of roast. Some brews have bourbon and show it, some have bourbon and blast it. Blast here, without the complementary components to aid for top quality. Not bad, but disappointing in that this could be so much more with a better base. 14.2

A car with a car rack looked like a police car, so I slowed down, only to realize I had been tricked into obeying the law FOR NO REASON.
