Bottle @ the Flying (cup+) Saucer .. . Pours a deep black coffee .. . light foam .. . mainly coffee, roasted malt, and dark dried fruit- just a hint of orange .. . pretty good, i think i liked the first reserve series from a few years back but this should age nicely.. . . I want the answers now or eventually!

neepsntatties (1270) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 22, 2011
On tap at the Deschutes location in Portland’s Pearl Dist. Colour.... as black as onyx with a very thick dark tan head. Nose... massive chocolate and cocoa with plenty o’ booze and hints of pepper. Palate... a heavy shot of Bourbon (which lasts throughout the drinking experience!), followed by vats of chocolatey goodness, faint hints of orange (esp. chocolate covered orange!), roasted filberts, charred devil’s food cake, ash, wet earth and loooooong, sweetly boozy finish.

yngwie (14338) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 20, 2011
Bottle, 22oz. A clear looking dark brown beer with a small beige head. A bit alcoholic on the nose, with coffee and roasted hints, some molasses. The flavor is most pleasant, with a nice alcohol, a touch of orange, some spicyness and a roasted touch. Full body, a bit sweetish. Lasting warming finish with orange hints, chocolate and molasses. A quite nice one, but a bit too warming. 110820
