Thanks Yammy! It’s black with a broken sheet of light mocha foam. Smells really good with the barrel up in the face with a good amount of mineral, nougat, caramel, some bourbon, some nice sweet malts. Flavor is nice and robust with plenty of rich malts, some more barrel, some sweet dark chocolate truffle and a little bitterness. Nice flavor. Full bodied with reserved carb and a moderately dry finish. Good stuff. Would bang again.

The sweetness from the alcohol and the bourbon hit you first, but then you taste raisins, dark chocolate, and coffee. Some pretty distinct maple, presumably from the barrel along. A really nice long finish where the maple comes through. Very nice, complex beer; very nice balance.

Pours a dark black with light and quick fading brown head. A weaker aroma than I’d expect with bourbon and coffee. An rich and strong bourbon, coffee, and light cocoa taste. Its both sweet and sour. There’s lingering strong bourbon taste that I was hoping for this beer. Amazing and so glad I found this!

Pours a dark brown with a tan foam head. Aroma is strong oak bourbon with a touch of caramel. Flavor is oak bourbon with hints of sweet chocolate, caramel, and some dark fruit. There’s a small touch of bitterness as well. The beer is very smooth - goes down like silk. Amazing.

0.355l bottle from trade with FrostyTiger. This is a deep dark black one with a quickly disappearing but lovely looking dark as hell top. The nose is as amazing as I was expecting. Loaded with dark chocolate and bourbon. Both burned coconut, sweet vanilla and dark soy seeds is present here. As is dark coffee, sweet Nesquick and deep dark roasted malts as well. And the wood shines through all the dark aromas. Absolutely fantastic. Tingling and prickling on the carbonation and it has a massive and thick chewy mouthfeel. Lots of bourbon in the taste without being over the top. Alcohol, sweet milky but dark milk chocolate ice cream, tons of oak, more coconut, sesame seed oil, wood, something burned before it ends warming, dark and just delicious. A fantastic bourbon and roasted aftertaste that’s refusing to let go in the mouth. A really really good one! Can’t thank you enough David! 01.05.2013
