4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with fast dissipating, small tan head. Aroma of wood, coffee, licorice, vanilla/bourbon, leather, oats, dark fruit, raw sugar and bitter chocolate. Taste is very sweet and light bitter with notes of raw sugar, licorice, chocolate, vanilla and dark fruit. Full bodied with low carbonation. Quite a bit of alcohol. Very nice still.

Wow What a great brew. A hint of cherry in the bourbon barrel flavor. A truly top notch stout. Aged one year at home to perfection.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Mar 27, 2012. Dark brown with a brown head that fades. Chocolate, some vanilla and oak with the requisite bourbon although it doesnít overwhelm which is nice. Sweet, moderate carbonation, full body, alcohol becomes more predominant on the palate, some anise and more sweetness on the finish.

Deep black brew, tan head. Nose of vanilla, smoke, chocolate, bourbon. Boozy but not near as much as I expected - lots of bourbon and dark chocolate.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a rich glossy black with some ruby edges. A nice mahogany head. Rich roasty malts, sweet brown sugar, bourbon, and barrel fill the nose, with a heavy booziness but not a pure alcohol. The flavors follow with a rich full roast malt, sweet oaky bourbon, peanut butter blossom cookies, brown sugar, molasses, very nutty, some buttery-ness. Very full mouth with a good drying oak on the tongue and a alcohol burn on the roof and cheeks. The booziness is there but itís not raw alcohol heat. It is full of flavor and intensity. I can see why there is a lot of love for this brew and I can see why some people would give it a lower rating. I really enjoyed it and itís worth seeking out.

Aroma of sticky toffee, chocolate, cherry and caramel. Pours black and thick (duh). Taste is enormous with sweet toffee, chocolate and cherry. Alcohol burn is balanced nicely.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle thanks to zinister. Nose is chocolate malt. Taste is chocolate a bit alcohol where is the beer? Way too smooth and silky for such a big beer. Hard to rate this one but itís well done and very dangerous.

Bottle from Jesterdeal, thanks! Pour is black, some tan head, but not much. Aroma is roasted malts, sweet bourbon and cocoa. Incredible mouthfeel gives way to bourbon, sweet booze, all sorts of chocolate and malts. Finishes with bourbon, wow. Incredibly easy to drink considering the abv.

Pours jet black with a dark brown head. Aroma of booze, chocolate and caramel. Taste follows, so thick slightly sweet. I would like to try this with some age.
