22 oz bottle I got 3 years ago from either Reino or Bags. Hard to remember. I think it was Reino. Either way, thanks to both you guys for awesome beers over the years. Served up in small snifter.

A: Jet black body with lots of gloss to it. Seems pretty opaque. Held to the light, a little brown hue peeks through at the top edges of the glass, otherwise it is in fact opaque. The pour got me amost a finger of mocha colored head. It fell quickly to a ring and puts up some spotty lacing.

S: The aroma is almost all booze. Lots of sweet bourbon and burnt sugar. Getting a good amount of coffee and chocolate when I sort through all this booze. I can only pick up on a touch of caramel coming through, otherwise thats all I'm getting.

T: Pleasant surprise here. The flavor is not nearly as boozy as the nose. Not even close. The chocolate really dominates. Lots of dark and milk chocolate flavors. Just very tasty chocolate goodness. Coffee is a bit subdued but does have a nice roast to it. Bourbon and caramel rounds this off. Further inspection gets me a light bitterness from the hops mingling with coffee and chocolate. Just friggin beautiful.

M: Light side of full in body. Silky smooth on the palate. ABV is misleading. It feels like its not even there at first sip, but a light warmth slowly builds in the core of the chest. Just enough to let you know to slow down and savor what this beer has to offer. Aftertaste is all milk chocolate.

OA: Damned good and one of the best beers I have had in a very long time. I am really glad I held onto this bottle for 3 years because it is almost perfect to me. This is dangerous because I know want more and that could be costly. Just a beautiful beer.
