UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 2013 bottle. Deep dark brown color. Malt, chocolate, caramel and bourbon in the aroma. Raisin. Malty sweet caramelly boozy flavor with bourbon, raisin, coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet, but complex and delicious dessert beer. 2010 nip bottle: mix of H&V barrel aged for almost a year on Wild Turkey, Austin Nichols and new charcoaled bourbon barrels, and then mixed, according to the label. Almost black and opague. Strong aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruit and bourbon. Roasted and charcoaled flavor with coffee, strong bourbon notes and dark chocolate. Malty sweet but very complex. Long earthy hopbitter finish with charcoal and bourbon. World class! (9 4 9 4 18 = 4.4)

Maria (10187) - Thisted, DENMARK - JAN 1, 2011
It’s pitch-black without any head, and the mouth-feel is oily and delicious. The aroma has notes of hard-roasted malt, wood, licorice, coffee and caramel. The flavour is sweet and soft with notes of hard-roasted malt, licorice, oak and tannic acid, coffee, dark fruits, caramel, and the finish is bone dry – it’s a really nice one!

Black pour, very small brownish head. Aroma starts with big bold bakers chocolate, booze, asphalt and some light coffee. Flavor is smooth and delicious. Booze, chocolate, oak, molasses, prunes, raisins, and very light ashy/coffee notes. Great beer. Really awesome.

hopscotch (9954) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2011
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!
