Black pour from 12oz bottle at home. Very boozy. Aroma of scotch and sugar cocoa madness. Off white head. Sweet and honey whiskey and maybe some nuts. Just a massive beer. Good I think?

Bottle... Poured feel dark brown with a mild forming, khaki head. Aroma of bourbon barrel, oak, and carrot cake. A bit of heat and booze, but overall smoothed out and well rounded towards the end. Oak, vanilla, caramel, malt sweetness, dark toasted sugars and fruits. Oak, and wood, toasted notes towards the finish.

Sample at Ale Alpharetta, from Drew. Dark, reddish brown, with a small, creamy, tan head. Big aroma of toasted bread, syrup, anise, and chalk. Very sweet and syrupy, with a little bitterness. Heavy body, creamy, smooth, and clean. Very malty and delicious.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 24, 2015 Pours an opaque chocolate brown with a nice fine-bubbled tan head; ruby-tinged light sneaks through at the bottom of the glass. Bourbon-infused oak dominates the aroma, but lets through sweet malt and caramel notes. Flavor is rather sweet, with malty and caramel notes and bourbon and oaky undertones. Viscous texture is fairly lively. Worthy!

Bottle as extra in a trade. Deep brown with a prominent tan head. Very rich malty nose. Pecans, toffee, plenty of earth-rubbed leather. Slight booze sharpness. Some acidic red apple skin. Very sweet toffee and rich cocoa flavor. Toasty. A bit hot. Somewhat one-dimensional. Full, sort of viscous. OK.
