4 ounce draft (most likely 2013) at ChurchKey poured into a tasting snifter. Pours black with bubbly tan head. Aromas of hot bourbon, chocolate, herbs. Tasting notes of bourbon, dark chocolate, oak. Medium body with a dry finish. Syrupy light mouthfeel, low carbonation.

rodenbach99 (3097) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 26, 2014
Bouteille de 33cl. Embouteillée le 7 février 2013. Une bière au liquide brun avec un semblant de mousse. Un nez de sucre brun, d’alcool et de chocolat. Une bouche d’alcool fruité, chocolat, de café, de bonbon au café, de toffee. Les saveurs sont agressives et fortes.

solidfunk (3678) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 26, 2014
A total barrel bomb of a stout. There is whiskey all over this without leaving much stout behind it. Pours black with good head and lacing. Smells like whiskey and booze with some roast malt. Thick consistency. Tap at Churchkey.

knickskicks (688) - - MAR 24, 2014
2013 bourbon barrel aged Shelton import version. Pours black with a bubbly light coffee colored head. Nose is smoke, cold cuts, bourbon, leather, chocolate--I think I’d be able to guess this was a European RIS in a blind tasting pretty easily. Taste is dark chocolate, dark fruits, syrup. Thin but syrupy sticky mouthfeel. Leaves a slight chalky bitterness.

Minderbinder (1716) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
Bottle 330ml. [2013] Pours very dark brown with low brown head. Very nice lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla, alcohol. Taste is of bourbon, alcohol, chocolate, roasted malt, bitterness, caramel, sugar, fruits?. Palate: Full bodied. Soft carbonation. Dry woody finish, while a tad sticky on the lips. Overall: Very good. Lots of alcohol in there, but nothing unpleasant. Not cloying, but a sipper anyways. Somewhat awesome stuff.

SlovakSniper (3048) - Candiac/Frelighsburg, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 12, 2014
Embouteillée le 7 février 2013. Un liquide bien noir sur lequel frétille un col mousseux presque brun. Un nez de mélasse, de toffee et de miel langoureusement enrobé par des parfums fins de chêne blanc brûlé au charbon, de crème glacée à la vanille et de poivre fin. Un goût pantagruélique. Les sucres résiduels se vautrent dans un alcool épicé. Ma langue découvre des notes de café, du tabac et de la cannelle. C’est une copieuse dégustation. Au palais, la riche texture du liquide est poussée par un corps à la forte structure. Le pétillement est bas mais il est au rendez-vous. La finale est riche, débordante de chocolat et de caramel, avec de bonnes notes chaudes, épicées et vibrantes d’un Wild Turkey bien capable d’éviter une catastrophe trop sucrée. Une bière noire remarquable. Délicieuse mais dangereuse.

fugitive (1306) - Athens, GREECE - MAR 11, 2014
Bottle. Color black with medium brown head. Aroma malt, chocolate, vanilla, alcohol, whisky. Taste malt, alcohol, whisky, wood, dark chocolate.

S_Side_Smitty (436) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - MAR 8, 2014
January 2013 vintage. Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is chocolate and bourbon - no doubt (the oak barrel is there too). Taste is smooth, oaky, vanilla, creamy coconut, and deep malts with a high octane finish. This one is subtle - don’t drink it cold.
