The beer pours a densely opaque black, with just a small translucent halo of very dark brown around the edges when held to the light. There is a very short head of brown foam. The aroma is coffee forward, bourbon, sweet, almost a maple syrup effect; like a very sweet, very strong coffee with cream, a splash of bourbon, and a touch of vanilla. The taste follows the aromas exactly, hitting all the beats of the aromas, adding some dark roasted malt notes, and a touch of oak, some rich nuttiness, almost hazelnut, but mostly being like that amazing boozy coffee drink. The mouth is full, round, thick, but not heavy. There is a bit of heat from the booze. Elegant, nay decadent, this is damn fine.
