TheEpeeist (3465) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2013
22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Smells like vanilla extract and chocolate egg cream with a sprinkle of cinnamon. Smooth medium body with a tang. Taste is chocolate syrup, cane sugar and oak finishing with welcome bitter black coffee. Where’s the bourbon? Too much unrefined sugar but good for dessert.

drpimento (2397) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2015
Appearance is very nice with a huge, long lasting, foamy, tan head, some lace, and an opaque brown black color. Aroma is mainly chocolate with a little roast, vanilla, and bourbon in the background. Flavor’s like nose, sweet bitter up front, soft carbonic tang, bourbon clashes with other qualities in finish. Body is a bit soft. One and done.

markextrae (1622) - NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2015
bottle sample from a shared bottle, poured a dark brown to black colour with a small beige ring on top, strong aroma of sweet bakers chocolate, cacao, mocha, raisins, vanilla, sweet bourbon spice notes, oak, some roasted nuts, dark malts, fudge, somehow the taste is a little bit off, i was expecting a lot more

PartyFowle (304) - - APR 16, 2015
Bottle. Dark chocolate black, inky but not thick. One inch of fuzzy cocoa-colored head sticks to the sides in thick globs. The nose is chocolate through and through. Cocoa powder and nibs, a hint of espresso, some vanilla, a touch of cola. Layered. Not a heavy flavor. Smooth cocoa leads, with bitter burnt roast rolling in soon after. A hint of vanilla and a touch of toasted wood in the form of coconut. Medium-light body ,mild carbonation. Inoffensive and smooth, though not overly flavorful. Like a rock rubbed smooth by the lapping of a chocolate river.

umich03jm (2479) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bottle thanks to Jason for sharing. Dark brown pour with no head. Aromas are chocolate milk and vanilla. Tastes the same. Light to moderate sweetness. Just a touch of roast and oak in the finish. Good but I get very little bourbon in this.

Steasy66 (1038) - Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2015
Aroma is big, chocolatey, and a bit roasty. Brown with small tan head. Easy drinking and smooth, some chocolate, roast, and a bit of a woody finish. Really nice stuff.

Draft. Aroma of LOTS of chocolate. Flavors of chocolate, some red wine, and finally some woodiness that seems to lift all of the beer?s sweetness off of the palate. Not super-complicated, but super good.

Bottle from AJ’s in Rochester New York. Pours a midnight black / brown, tan head that goes Dow to a thin layer and some small lace spots. Nose is creamy sod sweetness, vanilla maybe, lactose maybe. Tastes really sweet, touch of malt, milk chocolate. A little bitter, really smooth.
