Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks troganmi for this bottle! Bottled 26/3/13. Black with a small brown head. Great aroma full of coffee, bourbon, some vanilla, a coconut note and a bit of dark chocolate. Bittersweet flavor, roasty, coffee-ish, with dark chocolate, bourbon, coconut and vanilla. Full-bodied with a mild warming boozy finish. Great stuff.

Pours black with a cappuccino head. Aroma is strong on the bourbon, tons of vanilla and oak, also leather and chocolate notes. Taste is also strong with the bourbon barrel notes, oak and vanilla, pretty boozy, raisins and coffee. Really good, but i think i prefer regular speedway.

The foam has both dense and larger bubbles... Seen this in many a bomb stout. Good lacing too. Gets more and more dense over time. The nose is so perfekt, restrained corn whiskey, vanilla, hard roast and dry licorice powder.. So complex, layers of flavour I dont know where to begin. Nice aftertaste too. I’m sold. @mothebrother thank you kindly for sharing.

2013 Bottle. Wow! It’s hard to believe how smooth this beer actually is! So complex and refines, just the right amount of bourbon with beer!

Bottle. Poured black with a thin tan head. The aroma was absolutely amazing, with coffee, rich chocolate and bourbon. Taste was a silky smooth bourbon/chocolate front that went to coffee then back to the bourbon. Really well done. Definitely going to hunt this down again.
