4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2012 Have tried on tap and from bottle. Big alcohol presence. Less intrusive coffee flavor than is present in Mephistopheles stout and some other big imperials. Almost no head, but itís a dark tan color that wonderfully offsets the black of the beer itself. The complex flavor that makes the backbone of this beer is one of the most impressive Iíve ever experienced, and could maybe only be topped by Founders CBS.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a nose of bourbon toast on a bed cocoa and chocolate Nestle Quick for adults. Nose is wooden old, with bourbon chips in a bowl of Red Wine Grape Nuts. Hints of licorice and buttered sugar biscuit too. Flavor is chocolate coffe in a cherry bourbon barrtel with Jello chocolate pudding. Thick mouthfeel. Despite the ABV, itís never boozy. Good beer.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours pitch black with no head, some caramel bubbles though. Smells like wet wood, roasted malts and a little bourbon. Taste is warm, sweet and complex. Notes of bourbon, caramel, dark roasted malts, creamy oats and a little menthol. Very complex, yet just as well balanced. Full bodied. Alcohol is not hot, but present. Very good stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head. Super bourbony aroma with some vanilla, oak, and dark chocolate. Very, very sweet with lots of brown sugar, molasses, and caramel. Tastes of chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, bourbon, and vanilla. The sweetness is very pronounced, and despite the alcohol content and barrel aging, not as boozy as I thought.

Pours from bottle black with minimal dark tan head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, dark chocolate, coffee, with sweet sharpie marker. Very sweet, great bourbon flavors, bitter chocolate, vanilla. Really enjoy the carbonation--it is lively and as you swish it around in your mouth it becomes creamy deliciousness. May I have another?
