UPDATED: MAY 23, 2013 Bottle #168/360, opened 2011. Black with a dark brown tinge, tan to light brown head that instantly disappears into a porous ring. Aroma: chocolate liqueur, vanilla, oak, licorice. Taste: chocolate, pralines, salty licorice, some bourbon, vanilla, vinous, dry finish. Warming alcohol, but doesn’t really feel like 12%. Full-bodied with noticeable carbonation. Great!

deyholla (6504) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 2, 2011
Bottle thanks to Scott! Pours a dark brown with a brown head that dissipates completely. Aroma has a good amount of bourbon with a roasted malt not as well as a bit of dark chocolate. Flavor has a good amount of roast with a decent amount of chocolate backing and a hint of bourbon.

2 small bottles, thanks to tkrjukoff and ekstedt, who came with a bottle each!
Sampled on April 1, 2011
Rather surprising to see clear glass bottles used for a beer meant to be stored?
Black color, small brown head. Mainly alcohol scent, also sweet and wood. Sweet, some fudge, overwhelming alcohol taste. Sweet fudge aftertaste. Loads of warming alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, medium bitterness.

jrallen34 (3478) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
18cl bottle poured into my Bruery tulip...Black pour with very little carbonation, not much lacing or much to look at...The aroma is too light can’t pull much out. However, I get some really nice vanilla and bourbon coming through, little too much alcohol. Light char as it warms on the finish, pretty interesting and yummy...The taste is pretty good and similar to the aroma, just not as successful. More alcohol comes through, and light vanilla. Not enough coffee or chocolate or bitterness to balance this out. Additionally, the feel is light and not as full as I want in a stout, affects my enjoyment of the taste.
