brokensail (10530) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Bottle @ RBSG 2014 Grand Tasting. Murky amber pour with a small off-white head. Sweet caramel and raisin aromas. Some milk chocolate, cocoa, alcohol, and vanilla. Flavor has lots of different sweet characteristics, but nothing really works that well together. Sweet chocolate covered raisins, caramel, and vanilla. Some mild roast and spirit, too. Weird.

Ferris (2889) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle - Big and boixy mollasses. Jet black thin head. Big but milder than the nose, spicey and a really long finish. Molasses and spice with a bit of burn.

574deadzone (984) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2014
Sample size. Pours a very dark brown to black with no head. Nose is deeply malty, some whiskey-ish notes, and fruitiness. Very sweet flavor, also pretty bitter. Pretty big body, viscous, oaky dry, low carb, with a warm finish. Complex, well-integrated, warm, and just damn tasty. Really enjoyable, happy how this one turned out.

TheEpeeist (3272) - Swarthmore, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 27, 2014
12 oz bottle. Dark brown with bubbly edges. Nose is fudge, molasses, oak and fruitcake. Hot, kind of thick, with a sexy buzz. Tastes like it smells; chocolate and booze, wood and raisin with smoke. Super sipper.

mcmd (310) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Pours dark brown, almost black with very minimal head, scant flat bubbles. Aroma is brandy (would have thought bourbon without beer description), dark chocolate, vanilla, hint cinnamon, oak. Taste is sweet chocolate, tart dark fruit/cherries, vanilla, oak, finishes smooth and dry without much bitterness, alcohol present but not in your face. Really good, especially as I’m not usually a fan of blended beers.

Homer321 (1596) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle. Subtle chocolate and sweet grapes in the nose. Subtle dried fruit. Done cherry almost like a fruit roll up. Some toffee as it warms. Plenty of barrel but not overpowering. Light warming but not hot. Pretty grate. Yummy.

DrewFace (702) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2013
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Pours a deep dark blackish color. Boozy, bourbon, oaky, vanilla, and chocolate aroma. Sweet boozy, oaky flavor...vanilla, chocolate. Barrel and alcohol are big but still smooth. Very delicious!

arminjewell (5993) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thick oily black pour with thin to no tan head, aroma brought big bourbon, oak, whiskey, lots of dark fruit with hints of the cognac soaked fruits coming through, touch of dark fruits, lots of caramel, toffee in there, all sweet. Taste is big sweet dark fruits, cocoa, dark molasses, hints of roast and coffee fade quick into sweet cognac, oak, and whiskey, slight vanilla, finishing sweet.

jbeatty (1010) - New York, USA - OCT 28, 2013
Bottle, 10/20/2013. Pours deep brown, nearly black, thin off-white head develops on the surface. Aroma is drizzled chocolate over dark fruit, rich caramel and thick dark malts, brown sugar, vanilla, hint of coffee, smooth barrel notes. Taste is chocolate toffee, dark fruit and caramel with spicy hoppy bitterness, vanilla and sweet barrel notes, mildly boozy. Medium body, could use a bit more thickness but nonetheless quite drinkable. Found this to be pretty tasty.
