4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark black with a lovely tan head. Aromas are a little light on this one with some chocolate and cream coming through. Taste is MASSIVE creamy chocolate with layers of chocolate that come through between touches of coffee, caramel, toffee, and just a hint of char. Palate is seductively heavy and full with a richness that covers the tongue and is truly satisfying. Overall, this and Southern Tier Choklat are the epitome of chocolate beers that pull it off without being sweet messes of nasty; lovely sipper that is quite good!

Been wanting to try this for a while... Clear dark brown in color... Aroma of milk chocolate... Flavor is vanilla, chocolate and more chocolate... Light roasted malt notes... Dark fruits on finish... Really good, can't taste much bourbon

Had this one for almost a year now, picked it up at the brewery on a road-trip. The nose is one of the best chocolate aromas around, Southern Tiery almost with a little touch of booziness underneath. In the mouth it is rich and heavy wth a beautiful chocolate/vanilla flavor mingled with robust roast malts and hints of coffee. I am really impressed by this beer. Like a fantastic milkshake.

On tap at Blue Monk in Buffalo, NY. Nice deep dark pour. Heavy on the chocolate, very much so. Sweet but not killer. Didn’t get a lot of the bourbon and oak, just a lot of nice chocolate. Would have again.

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, faint bourbon, and oak. It pours a dark brown with a faint orange highlights and a small beige head that fades to a minimal film outlined by a fine ring. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate and sweet caramel. The finish has roasted malt, vanilla, light black coffee, and light oak. I don’t much actual bourbon. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation.
