Bottle… This beer rocks!… Murky, dark brown ale (nearly black) with little to no head. The lavish bouquet is an excellent marriage of chocolate, cologne, fudge, coconut and a subtle note of bourbon. Full-bodied and ultra creamy with tickling carbonation. The flavor provides dark chocolate, whiskey and fudge. Deeply roasted, bittersweet, warming finish. World class beer shared by darkguardian. Thanks, Chris!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tiny bottle, #202 of 2483, bottled on June 08, 2010; courtesy of blomster. Thanks a ton, Christer! Pours a deep, slightly oily, dark-brown color with a very light formation of bubbles. Kind of a nondescript aroma, showing some ashiness, dark fruits, and pronounced charred oak / bourbon barrel notes; just seems a bit tight, without that penetrable richness of the best examples; nothing harsh, though. Medium-full body; very light carbonation; modest amounts of a pronounced bourbon and alcoholic presence; smooth and reasonably tempered overall. Medium-high levels of charred barrel notes, light ashiness, some caramel and dark, bitter chocolate, and a sharp-edged bourbon that, while not necessarily rough, never quite opens up to the layered richness that one would most want to extract from this sort of a project; still, a very solid rendition, if a touch too charred and ashy overall for my palate. Lasting finish of dark chocolate, plenty of charred barrel notes (nothing acrid), and reasonably dry overall.
