From notes. Enjoyed this one over at Chris’s house on March 26 for a beer and smoked meats get together. The pour is a nice dark black, but there is a noticeable lack of carbonation. It pours like a thin oil, no head to be found, and comes off as a little thin for it. The aroma is huge on the malts. There is a little dark cocoa and some heavy licorice here. It’s almost a fruity licorice, there’s so much. The bourbon is definitely present, but doesn’t add an oakiness or vanilla note. The flavor is a little off. There is a strong malt and a ton of licorice, so it’s hard to ignore them. There is a little bit of a tartness to the flavor. Like a sharp dark fruit. There is definitely some alcohol and a little bit of a bourbon zing. The mouth feel is flat and thin. It’s watery with no carbonation and it just falls off the tongue with speed. The aftertaste is lingeringly boozy and dominated by bitter brewer’s licorice. It’s intense, but not at all what I was hoping for from the touted Block 15.

Oily brown black with cream head. Wonderful lightly woody bourbony aroma. Taste is rich and dark with vanilla, mild licorice and some other stuff. Thanks for the samples, Tim @ Ben's! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

tom10101 (5045) - Quebec, CANADA - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle (750 ml) shared at tasting. Black with a small to medium beige head, decent retention, leaving little lacing. Flavors of cocoa, bourbon, vanilla, cherries, roasted malt, ashes, burnt caramel and oak. Taste is moderately sweet with a bit of alcohol heat and mild chocolate bitterness. Full body. Medium carbonation. Roasty and chocolate finish with a bit of alcohol warming in the finish. A very good bourbon BA RIS similar to tons of others but still flavorful and well executed.

SlovakSniper (4906) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
Beau corps noir et tête noire. Bien malté, solide présence du rôti, fruits séchés, bourbon en sourdine. Légère brûlure boisée et cacao noir sur les papilles. Le bourbon arrive sur le tard. Vanille dans son sillon. Douce et amère. Soyeuse. Très bon travail de la barrique.
