4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle from Capones. Poured a thick oily pitch black with a smaller creamy dark chocolate brown head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, vanilla, raisin, fig, dak chocolate, rum cake and chocolate cake bater. Full syrupy body with a solid dose of heat but not that much for the actual ABV, average carbonation with a super long lingering aftertaste. Flavor of charcoal, tar, tobacco, bourbon, vanilla extract, super burnt toast, bakers dark chocolate, dark fruit skins. Solid beer that gets better as I sip it.

Really good. Strong malt and sweet aroma. Pitch black with no head but really nice lacing. Oily palate with low carbonation. Strong roasted malt flavor with caramel and some chocolate hints. High alcohol that is somewhat hidden but not completely disguised at this level. Great for the end of a cold day.

Intense aromas of bourbon, also get some very nice chocolate and barrel notes. Taste is a rich velvety blend of dark fruit, chocolate, bourbon and wood. Super smooth for the high alcohol content, outstanding brew.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black body, with just the tiniest bit of khaki foam. No lacing. Viscous pour. Nose is absolutely dominated by bourbon notes. Accented by some dark chocolate, caramel, and traces of coffee and roasted malts. Flavor is similar. The bourbon character is perhaps a bit too forward and holds this back from being in the top tier. That said, the bourbon notes are quite nice. Full bodied, soft carbonation, slick on the palate.

12 oz bottle. Dark brown with a tan head. Nose is damp wood, coffee, bourbon and dark chocolate. Rich and malty but something is a bit off. Not quite thick; coating with a tingle finishing like a shot of whiskey. Taste is espresso, cane sugar, raisin and bourbon. Itís big, but lacking some finesse.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Oily black with a big, creamy, brown head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, bourbon barrel, vanilla, and dark fruit. Thick and creamy with alcohol coming through, but in a nice, warming proportion. Taste is rich and sweet, but also quite bitter. It tastes like chocolate covered cherries dipped in bourbon. Very big beer done very well.
