3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.

Awesome flavor I coukd drink this all night long. After it really warmed up you could get a nice mellow alcohol burn. Overall awesome beer with great depth and flavor.
