4 roses 2010 growler from JW77. Huge thanks! Pour is black as the night with no head. Huge vanilla, chocolate, prune, slight coffee notes in the aroma. Big and fucking bold. Thick and chewy body, but no where near the sludge of the brandy. Loads of dark chocolate, vanilla, slight bitter coffee, earthy, and slight bourbon. Delicious! Well integrated between beer and barrel.

Shared by Daknole during his Final4 tasting. Bottle pours black with a beige head. Aroma shows notes of dark chocolate, heavy roasted malt, vanilla, bourbon and a hint of dark fruit. Flavor shows the same with additional notes of oak and molasses covered marshmallows. This thing was definately a beast! Thanks Dak as usual!

Shared by Dak @ his Final Four Tasting. Squid ink pour with a dark caramel head. The glass literally looked like it was filled with cola after the brew was gone...stained it like crazy. Aroma showed tons of bakerís chocolate, rich roasted coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and char. Flavor is filled with sweet bourbon, dark fruit, molasses, burnt caramel, toasted marshmallow, and vanilla. Chewy...and Iím sure my tongue is near black after drinking this. Yum!
