HonkeyBra (3985) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Sampled many, many times, finally rating it. Pours a black, sludgy, and thick with a small tan head. Aroma of espresso, sweet malts, dark fruits, lots of booze and sherry like sweetness. Cocoa, dark chocolate, burnt sugar notes as well. Tobacco, oak, wet wood. This is obviously huge. Flavor is big, sweet, rich, massive. Overall, though, perhaps against all odds, it ends up going together nicely. As long as it’s a small pour, this is nice. Big mouthfeel. Finishes boozey and sweet.

brokensail (15270) - San Leandro, California, USA - OCT 18, 2013
On tap @ GABF. One of the beers I most wanted to try. Black pour from with very little, if any, head. Nose is pure coffee. Coffee liqueur, espresso, and rich dark chocolate. Roasted malt, slight alcohol, and sweet vanilla and caramel. Coffee dominates the palate. Sweet vanilla, caramel, and tons of coffee. Plenty of roast, dark chocolate, and a touch of booze.
