A - Pours a pitch black body, not letting any light through. Color is a little brown at the edges. Small head on the pour turns into just a ring around the glass. Nice lacing.

S - Big bourbon, vanilla and oak. Robust roasted dark malts. Day old coffee.

T - Molasses sweetness starts it off. Works into expresso bean with a coffee bitterness. The time in the whiskey barrels shows itself with some bourbon, vanilla and a slight oaky taste. Coffee-like bitterness stays around until the aftertaste.

M - Medium to full bodied. Carbonation is pretty smooth, but ever so slightly biting.

D - I liked this beer a lot more than I expected to, considering I don't usually like coffee flavored beers. It might have been a good idea to acquire more of this beer.
