Bottle courtesy of linusb. Thanks man, huge want! Pours viscous oily pitch black with a small creamy goldenish mocha head that doesn’t leave much trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is intense to say the least, malty and nutty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, toasted coconut, caramelized pecans, dark roast coffee, high quality dark chocolate, moist soil and bourbon alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter, malty and nutty. Mouthfeel is thick viscous, velvety, round, oily, tiny astringent, slightly boozy and full bodied. Finish is insanely rich with all the components mentioned in the taste. As insane as expected from this brewery. Crazy decadent and crazy delicious. Tried side-by-side with Assassin 2014 and this definitely holds more bourbon barrel character. Insanely rich!
