Had the barrel aged bottled version. Pours as black as its namesakeís armor with a decent tan head. Smoky malt aroma hazy strong overtone of bourbon- soaked wood and hints of licorice and molasses. Bold flavor has. Ores of bourbon, oak, smoky malt, licorice, molasses, and a bit of caramel. Firm texture had fizz to spare. Come to the dark side - we have great beer!

Rich but not too heavy. Significant anise as well as the expected roasts. This walks right up to the line of too much, takes a step back and stops.

Appearance: Dispenses from the corked, caged bottle a black body with a medium-sized, beige, collapsing head.
Smell: Roast, espresso. Dark fruits but also some additional berryish tones. Mild touch of dark chocolate. Pinch of smoky pipe ash. Characteristic JD scents.
Taste: Dark chocolate is one of the initial flavors but itís not the most particularly strongest taste. Light infusion of whiskey, oak notes. Roast with a slant of coffee. Even a bit of dark toast. Dark fruitiness. Encroaching alcohol presence as you near the sleek finish due to the surprising crispness with final touches of whiskey and dry chocolate.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium-plus carbonation.
Overall: Itís relatively airy mouthfeel keeps it, well, light and refreshing. Itís good, and I feel that is the correct opinion to have.
