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.

This one was a winner with it’s full cocoa and whiskey flavors, and being only 5% abv. I didn’t 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.

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 ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

OmegaX (1230) - Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2013
On tap at Hunah day 2013. Nose was pure whiskey and some roast with leather like aromas. It’s 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.

On nitro at CCB. Pours a hazy dry stout brown with a tan head. Nose is chocolate, roasted malt, earth, wood, and whiskey. Flavor is similar- whiskey presence is pronounced with earthy and dry roast all over. Medium in body with lots of oak, earth, and whiskey in the finish.

The aroma is dry and whiskey like with coffee and wood. The appearance is dark with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is thin. Overall a good beer.
