Poured from a 750mL bottle into a Kane Tulip Glass. Acquired in a trade.
Pours a thick, inky, opaque black body with a deep brown one finger head that reduces fairly quickly, leaving spotty lacing and a ring of retention.
Aromas are heavy on the bourbon, very whiskey forward, with a light chocolate-vanilla aroma, judging by the aromas I think this will be sweet.
Upon sipping, sweet milk chocolate upfront, mingled with caramel-bourbon, sweet toffee, light vanilla on the follow through, finished by roasty charred malt, coffee-like.
Rich, thick mouthfeel, very smooth and silky, low carbonation, defintiely the shining point of this beer.
This was a big one.. this highlight of this beer was the oily, rich look and feel, and the aromas and flavors were there as well. Would have liked a little more vanilla, but overall excellent.
