Aromas of cream, coffee, chocolate, a bit of whiskey. Tasting notes of toffee, cream, coffee, light whiskey. Creamy mouthfeel. Medium-light body with a dry finish.

Had this at the bar room. It's a very dark and toasty beer with a bitter taste. It's a medium palate but packs a nice punch

On nitro tap at CCB; pours a thick black with fluffy brown head and good lacing. Aroma of smoked oak, whiskey, and slight roasted malt. Taste follows with a baby whiskey and oak flavor and a slightly sweet chocolate back end. Easy to drink and smooth, very enjoyable.

On draft at CCB for Huna Day 13í. Got a small sip from my buddies cup. Pitch black with a slight lacing. Little bit of whiskey aroma but mostly dry like a typical dry stout. Mouth feel was pretty flat, which kind of ruined it for me.

Pours black. Nose is booze and roast. Flavor follows suit with earthy and ashy tones.

On tap at Hunah day 2013. Nose was pure whiskey and some roast with leather like aromas. Itís like someone burned your shoe and then tried to put out the fire with whiskey...which probably only make things worse...and make me mad because of the wasted whiskey. Anyways, flavor is quite similar with tannic qualities hidden behind whiskey and roasted notes. A bit thin on the palate. Not bad.

This one was a winner with itís full cocoa and whiskey flavors, and being only 5% abv. I didnít get much whiskey in the aroma, but lots of cocoa, roasted malts and mellow oak were all there. Easy on the palate, while giving a decent whiskey-fix.

Nitro tap in a shaker at the taproom. Very dark brown, near black pour. Creamy beige head sits almost two fingers thick atop the elixir. I can smell whiskey from arms length. Up close the aroma reveals coffee and a tough of smoke alongside the whiskey. Taste is smokiest than expected. Lots of roast and charred oak. The whiskey isnít as prominent as in the aroma. Light espresso flavors linger in the back of the throat. Much creamier mouthfeel than Iíve been accustomed to from the style. Leaves a light film on the tongue which is a nice quality of many CCB brews. Drinks bigger than it is which should please many who steer clear of Irish dry stouts because they lack body and flavor. This one lacks neither.
