Pour is a flat black glass coating sticky viscous mess. Smell is a little boozy with caramel molasses and resiny. Taste is smooth chocolate caramel some mild fruits with whip cream. Mouth is fully coated with a sweet chocolate syrup

Tap at CCB on release day. Couldnít wait to try this brew. Nose is big brandy notes with tons of thick chocolate and vanilla notes. Some roast and boozey aromas waft out of the snifter on this one. Pour is jet black with a thin ring of dark brown head. Body is soft but thick. Not a whole lot of CO2 left but it was still bubbling a bit. Taste is intense! Lots of vanilla and brandy with some dark chocolate roasted notes. Coffee is there with more chocolate following up. This one was quite hot and boozey still but damn good. I loved this one.

Dark black body. No head, only the faintest skim, no lacing. Nose is roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, and apple brandy. Eh. Flavor isnít particularly impressive. A bit muddled and conflicted. Full bodied, slightly boozy, flabby finish. Not the best Marshal Z treatment Iíve had.

Growler to snifter (thanks drowland). Looks good; pitch black and viscous with low carbonation and thin lacing. Smells AMAZING! I was gonna give it a 9, but fuck it; shit doesnít get better than this. Tastes phenomenal too. Great mouthfeel. YES!!!

Tmoney99 (10099) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2012
Growler shared by b3shine. Poured a black color with a minimal fizzy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate, vanilla, woody and apple alcohol aroma. Heavy sweet toasted sweet malt flavor with a heavy sweet and small brandy alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Dixonian (1558) - Plano, Texas, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Growler courtesy of omega x - huge thanks, Jordan! Pitch black pour with no head. Smells decadent - roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, alcohol, and brandy. Itís like a cognac coffee and itís great. Syrupy and thick - flavors of wood, coffee, chocolate, and brandy. Really glad to have been able to try this. Canít wait to visit Tampa again!

joes (70) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 18, 2012
From tap at CCB (april 2012). Pours black with a reasonable brown head. Very nice fruity aroma of raisins, cherry and apricot on smooth roasted malts and sweet coffee. Quite sweet (alcohol?), but very soft velvet mouthfeel. Later on the bitterness comes up, good balanced. Dark choclate, sweet coffee, raisins on alcohol ("boerenjongens" ), vanille, sweet apples and something like a good dessert wine. Good one, LIKE it.

2012 on tap. Thick,, thick, oil slick black and thick. Oily, dry finish. Solid brandy character adds sweetness and dark fruits.
