BOD 4/1/15. Pours black as a starless night. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Rich complex nose of dark fruit (plum, prune, date, fig), chocolate, molasses and roast over a subtle hop background. Although not barrel aged, a distinct bourbon note is quite evident Full body with a nice creamy texture. Normal carbonation level with a touch of effervescence in the middle and a subtle burst in the finish. The flavor profile is good with a rather strong intensity of alcohol that tends to mute everything else, which hurts complexity and results in a lack of balance. However, after about half a glass, the palate adjusts to the raw alcohol and does allow for flavor complexity to emerge (translation - this is a sipper). It begins with a wave of dark chocolate over a rich molasses sweetness. The middle brings allows the dark fruit flavors to emerge, which are predominately prune and date. The finish is a slow sweet fade with a somewhat astringent alcohol bite, coupled with the associated heat and pucker, and bourbon like flavor.

Christpuncher (2095) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2015
This one is way under rated. Got a growler at a liquor store in myrtle beach. Strong roasted malt, coffee, and chocolate flavor. Finishes with a coffee fisnish and not overly bitter. Perfectly balanced beer. Black with a thin tan head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jredmond (6389) - Manhattan, New York, USA - JAN 7, 2015
Bottle sampled at Frank’s January 2015 tasting. Pours a deep blackish brown body with thin tan lacing. Aroma is sweet roast, light lactose and sharpie marker. Mouthfeel is medium with lots of sweetness upfront followed by roast, sweet nuts - macadamia & almonds, faint smoke and sweet malts. I wish this didn’t have the vague sharpie character, otherwise it’d be pretty good.
