Big thanks to daknole for sharing this one. This is nuts man! It pours deep darkness with deep infra red edges and mocha head. The aroma is simply huge and complex and weird and interesting. I get burnt smoky spinach, roasted figs, black licorice, black chocolate bar, grocery store produce aisle, mushed up dates, coconut, graham cracker and charred brown sugar. Whew! There is tons going on here but it all works well together. The taste hits with loads of coconut, sweet cherry juice, sweet black current jam and then it runs into molasses covered wood, more molasses, caramel covered graham cracker, toffee and chocolate. Holy hell this is something else. Good gravy!!

Bottle at Theis tasting. Pours brown with a light brown head. Now we are talking.. this is great stuff! Dark roasted aroma with notes of dark fruit, cherries, caramel, coco, bourbon and oak. Theres stronger notes of cherries in the flavour along with light smoke and figs. Would love another bottle!

Bottle. Thanks Theis for sharing. Pours jet black with a brown head. The aroma is heavy roasted with notes of lovely sour cherries, chocolate, light coffee, light licorice and has some notes of ripe dark berries. The bourbon is devilish! The flavour is very intense! Hard roasted malt, sweet caramel, cherries, bourbon, ripe fruit, cocoa and light coffee. Long sweet roasted cherry finish. Wow!!!

Pours a thick, opaque black with a thin tan head. Dark, full caramel aroma with bitter chocolate roastedness, vanilla, oak, and Bourbon elements. The flavor follows directly from the aroma profile with the addition of some dark fruit elements. The body is thick and rich and delivers the intense flavor profile heavily on the palate.

very dark oily color. The cherries and cocoa flavors and aroma are perfection together. Quite a beverage.

onceblind (5882) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2011
From a bottle during Euclid Hall’s Midnight Breakfast, Thursday 2011 GABF. Pitch black with a thin dissipating head. Heavy aroma of sour cherries, deep dark chocolate, a bit of cinnamon, espresso, and sticky bun. Big boozy flavor, but even the alcoholic phenols have a deligtful flavor. Roasty chocolate, boozy sour cherries, cinnamon, oak, and burnt caramel. Complex as all heck and delicious to boot. Just a little too heavy on the booze. Otherwise this is sublime.

On tap for the GABF Tappings at the Avery Tap Room on September 28, 2011. Pours black with a short, creamy khaki head. Aroma of toasted oats with only a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is of dark chocolate and light espresso with a finish of sour cherry. Beautifully blended. The alcohol is very present. Full bodied. Outstanding.
