Bottle split with some friends at Ray Ray’s. Pours a deep brown, darker than I would have expected from a brown ale, looked more like a porter. Small tan head and some lace. Nose of bourbon, rum, oak, vanilla, caramel, nut. Medium body, a little boozy. Tons of booze flavor. Better than I was expecting.

Pours deep mahogany into a snifter. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to coat surface. Sweet molasses, rum and oak aromas. Chocolate upfront turning to rum and oak in the dry lasting finish.

Bottle at Darkness Day 2013. Dark pour: Booze and vanilla nose. Rich chocolate, vanilla, and booze taste. Delicious:

Pour from a 22oz bomber. Dark brown with a tan head. Big boozy nose. Nice rum and whiskey flavor. Fairly thin, leaving the booze very prominent.

This was much better than expected. Well balanced. Some alcohol burn. Nice finish. Brash says this is a brown ale, I agree that it is an American Strong Ale ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Had at Autumn Brew Review 2013, nice chocolate and a bit of booze in aroma, taste is similar with some nice coffee, was really nice.
