Bottle from DA. Shared this with a few buddies the other day and wow was this thing a treat. Silky and smooth with characteristics of charred oak and Belgian dark chocolate with just a hint of bourbon. I liked how all the flavors came together in a symphony of goodness on the palate. Another great one from Block 15.

bytemesis (5580) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 4, 2015
Bottle thanks to p1meatloaf! Pours inky, glass coatingly black, minimal head or lacing. Aroma is sweet chocolate bourbon truffles, vanilla and a bit of toffee. Flavor is medium plus sweet, light plus bitter, super rich chocolate bourbon truffles again. Full creamy body, minimal carbonation. This is not as sweet as some, but it is still a desert sipper, and a good one at that.

Hoprider (266) - DENMARK - APR 26, 2015
(Episode IV - 2012) pours a dark reddish brown. No head. Some lacing. The nose is dusty roasted malt, oak, spice and vanilla. The taste is somewhat sweet and slightly boozy. Some sour notes as well which doesnt contribute positively. Very earthy and cellared flavors. This would have been much nicer fresh Im sure. Texture is light and oily with a low carb. Aftertaste is dry licorice and dark chocolate. Some oak, some vanilla. Sadly this bottle was too old in my oppinion. Will try to rerate if possible.

This one has everything right, BUT the flavor. 11% alcohol helps earn some bonus points (+)!

Draft at Chucks CD. Still black-brown, poured with no head. Licorice-molasses aroma. Smooth sip blossoms with great cigar tobacco and fresh carbonation. A little vanilla-bourbon in background. Cool and smooth. Leather and booze. Some cold smoke and cold brew coffee. Lovely beer.
