4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Pours nearly black with a small, creamy, mushroom-colored head. Good retention. The aroma is a bold, luxuriant swirl of fudge, chocolate crème, brownie brittle, toasted coconut and vanilla - loads of vanilla. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and nearly no carbonation. The flavor is a lush, deeply roasted fusion of dark chocolate, coconut and toasted oak. Finishes singed and carbonic, but smooth - amazingly smooth. Big-time kudos to newcigarz for popping the top off this world class gem!

Bottle @ RBSG 2015. Black pour with a thin khaki head. Nice roasted malts, vanilla, and bourbon on the nose. Slight coffee spiciness and plenty of dark chocolate. Nice smelling beer. Very smooth, well integrated whiskey, coffee, and chocolate. Slight caramel, molasses, and vanilla sweetness. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out lots of whiskey barrels, with some vanilla and cocoa. Flavour is complex, with notes of cocoa, vanilla and barrel notes. Cohesive and complex. Good stuff.

Will left this one for us to enjoy at the RBSG Grand Tasting. Thanks. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose of roasted malts and some whiskey. Medium plus in body. Flavor is very rich with chocolate and coffee along with vanilla. . The finish is bitter and the bourbon and oak are present. Alcohol is well hidden. This is a really good beer.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon and some oak and vanilla, coffee and chocolate, hints of smokiness, and some light bitter notes. Flavor the same with a nice blend and a nice coffee and bourbon finish. Smooth texture. A cool beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Very multi faceted flavor and flair. Aroma is sweet molasses and tar. The color is brown black and pours with almost no head. It starts thick and the carbonation is nice on the tongue. It moves to a warming heavy roast flavor. The finish gives the whisky warmth down your throat and on your tongue. Bottle
