emacgee (4377) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Draught at Milltown. Pours slightly murky charred wood black with two fingers of dark tan head. Nose is very nice and roasty with some burnt toast and sour bourbon. Notes of dark fruit and light bittersweet chocolate. Roasty with hints of chocolate and burnt popcorn. Lightly estery and oaky with bourbon and fruity notes on the finish. Medium body and spicy finish.

maxwelldeux (4164) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Draught at the Saucer’s Cellarbration of Raleigh Beer Week. Poured a near black color with a moderate tan head on it. Nose had some bourbon notes, though they were light and not overpowering. The bourbon overwhelmed the taste, though, and made it feel pretty boozy. Drank smooth, though.

mansquito (4116) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Rustico, Ballston tap ($9): Pours black with a small creamy head. Aroma is very complex: vanilla, bourbon, light roast coffee, and a hefty hint of booze as it warms. Taste is pretty similar. The alcohol is noticeable, but the taste is actually not offensive to me in the least bit. For me this was a definitive sipper, but each sip was very nice and mellow. At no point did I feel that any taste is overpowering. The roast is kept in moderation. There is very little bitterness, but at the same time very mild sweetness.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Black with a tan head, lots of tan lace. Nose is quite boozy with a fair amount of heat. Also roasty, mild brine, cocoa, vanilla. Flavor is fairly hot as well with alcohol being the dominant flavor upon the first few sips. Perty good.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2011
On tap at Cask Republic, New Haven. Stillish black pour, very oily but somehow a bit thin-looking. Nose was very sharply boozy, which initially put me off given its distance from what I enjoyed about the regular Allagash Black. But beyond the nose, the beer was more mellow, balanced, and enjoyable. Body suffered a bit from the lengthy aging, I reckon, as it was a bit thin and overly slick. But the flavor was an improvement, with deep chocolate, espresso, and whiskey blending enjoyably.

Butters (3963) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 21, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2012 Sampled at Brewvival 2011 - the first of the day! Clear brown pour with tan head. Sweet caramel, roasty chcocolate notes. Was rather smooth despite the abv. Good, not great. And at Brewvival 2012. vanilla and bourbon seem more evident this time. Not overpowering on the bourbon which is nice.

750 ml bottle thanks to lukaduke. Pours a darker brown with a beige head of foam. Aroma is sweet licorice, bourbon, roast, some wet wood. The taste is a darker sweetness with some roast and alcohol heat coming through in the finish. Pretty good overall.
