Dark brown close to black with a medium sized ok lasting and lacing frothy light brown head. Feels pretty light for the abv and the flavour is mellow and muted. Cocoa, dark chocolate, light chalky, wooden, light whisky notes. Medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation. Very soft on the palate, no alcohol showing.

First beer I've rated in a while. Black body small tan suds light and very bubbly in the palate. Alcohol a bit noticeable. Don't really taste much of the oakyness, but good selection.

Bottle to snifter. Nice bourbon and chocolate flavors are masked by an odd sour aroma and flavor. I made a lot of faces.

Bottle courtesy of my wife and her trip back to VA. Colour....basically black with a thick tan head. Nose...sweet, malty, chocolatey, Ovaltine and cocoa. Palate...slick, slippery, creamy. There’s plenty of milky chocolate and roasted nuts and then the barrel comes through on the palate. I don’t suppose they’ll distro in Oregon anytime soon???

Pour out of 750 mL bottle, thick black pour with thin tan head, aroma brought notes of dark fruits, licorice, hints of dark chocolate, espresso bean, slight roast notes as well in there, touch of oaky notes as well. Taste is a mix of dark chocolate, roast, coffee, hints of dark fruit, anise, slight oak, vanilla, finishing roasted, dry. Pretty tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Flaske: Kulsort olieret øl med et flot lidt brunt skumhoved. Duften er meget klassisk impy med masser af aske og brændthed. Bourbon kan desværre ikke rigtig trænge igennem. Samme problem med smagen. Brændt og en smule lakrids. Bourbon kan først anes meget sent. Lidt skuffende men bestemt drikbar.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber into snifter glass. Deep dark brown with dark tan head. Aroma of thick roast malt sweetness, chocolate, coffee, caramel, dark fruit, vanilla, and wood notes. Taste adds notes of dark chocolate, booze, espresso, more wood (pretty tannic), whiskey and light earthy bitterness. Heavy body, low carbonation, roasty, woody with lingering roast finish. Oak bourbon barrels seems to play a larger role in this compared to others, I love bourbon though so this is great. The cork on my bottle said "best by May 2013" but this still tastes great in October.
