Draft at RnH. Pours near black with a tan head. Huge bourbon and roasty aroma with some lighter notes of vanilla. The flavor starts with sweet bourbon and vanilla, follows with a little bit of chili pepper heat, and finishes with roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Very good.

drowland (7714) - Georgia, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Had at the Hunahpu release party as a part of RBWG 2010. The pour is pure black with a nice and really dark brown head. The aroma is basically all wood, lots of oak, some bourbon characteristic, but not as much as I had hoped. The flavor is awesome, though, with plenty of bourbon and wood mixed with awesome stout characteristics including chocolate and coffee and a wonderful spicy finish as well. Love this stuff!

Bottle to oversized snifter (thanks hubsluvsbeer). Looks good; pitch black with thin lacing. Smells great; malty and boozy. Tastes great too; much like it smells. Nice on the palate too. Excellent stuff!

18/II/2012 1Pt. 9.4Fl. Oz. bottle from De Hopduvel @ De Hopduvel - BB: n/a (2012-137) Thanks to BoBoChamp for sharing the bottle!

Dark brown soy sauce like fluid, no head, 2 or 3 bubbles, thick and oily. Aroma: vanilla, caramel, whiskey, alcohol, mocha to coffee, very powerful and overwhelming. MF: no carbon, full body, thick almost cloying texture. Taste: sweet caramel, vanilla, some tobacco, dark chocolate, mocha, little spicy. Aftertaste: mocha, coffee, sweet caramel, alcohol burning in the back of the throat. Pretty impressive stuff.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2010
Growler at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours an oily opaque black with a thin ring of khaki-colored head. Has a sweet, rich dark caramel malty nose with some smooth vanilla oaky bourbon and rum raisins. Starts with good fullness and rich dark caramel sweetness with some peppery spice and black licorice complexity before a warming sweet rich dark chocolate finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness to balance the warmth of the spice, but a nice beer regardless.

nimbleprop (6865) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2011
Sampled at the DC Ratebeer Gathering. 750ml bottle pours an oily, opaque black with some red, fading head. Big spicy, chili aroma, raisins, ancho chili, cherries, dark mexican chocolate, black pepper, vanilla, coconut. Flavor of brown sugar, molasses, raisins, chili peppers, tons of chocolate, dried cherries, malts, light coffee, cracked peppercorns. Full bodied finish although extremely smooth. I was very skeptical of this but it lived up to the hype.

Mora2000 (6134) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2010
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 The beer pours a dark brown to black color with a tan head. The aroma is bourbon, oak, chocolate and pepper. The flavor is strong oak, chocolate and pepper, with the pepper being a little overpowering and giving a light burning sensation in the mouth. Thick mouthfeel and low-medium carbonation.

vtafro (5907) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Draft. Black pour with some brown head. Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee, pepper, and hints of different spices. This beer smoothed out a bit with the barreling and is outstanding without it. Heard there were some problems with the recent batch...
