Alphadelic (2099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Rich, strong, a hint of bitterness. Heavy body, an awful lot of vanilla and a good boozy heat. Yeah, thatís good stuff, nice vein of smoke in it gives it a wonderful peaty quality.

DuffMan (9018) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 4, 2016
Bottle, shared with PQ and Parksy. Wow-- good thing Iím a Navy Seal, because for anyone else it would have been a HUGE problem to get through the wax, then the cap, then the cork in order to reach this sweet nectar. Sheesh. Viscous near black with a low, finely bubbled brown head. Sweet bourbon and chocolate (the Tootsie Roll comment earlier is apt), very full bodied with a velvety mouthfeel, balanced bitterness. Delicious.

stevoj (3705) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 17, 2016
Catch up from last nightís RIS Bottle share. One of the highlights of the evening for me. All around high marks, with the overall feel and flavor the best features. Silky smooth, rich roast grain flavors, mild sweetness, and a pleasant burn.

toxichop (597) - South Gate, California, USA - APR 10, 2016
pours all black with a brown head that dispenses quickly. Smells of oak, molasses, some toffee, vanilla, booze, and bourbon. Lots of sweetness in the taste, molasses upfront, brown sugar, oak, bourbon, and a touch of ethanol. Mouthfeel is medium, feels rather thin for the style. Low on the carbonation. Overall its on the sugary side. Not much barrel is present, just some alcohol. Exceptions were high, but it wasnít their for me.
