Thanks, Tommy. Dark brown body with mocha head. Loads of woodsy smoky aroma, nuts. Taste of dark chocolate, coffee, and a hint of bourbon. It’s really the aroma that is affected by the barrel aging here I think. Excellent beverage.

April 25, 2013 - bottle via trade. Very dark brown pour with some head that faded quickly. Aroma was smoky, wood, alcohol, peat, nutty and roasted malt. Taste was consistent with aroma, but heavy on the smoke.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle share by Ryan, dark coffee color with a bit of tan head. Aroma is insane, getting big bourbon aromas, getting some smokiness, lots of malt, bit of nuttiness. Taste is a bit of alcohol up front and settles into some nice ashy oak, finishes with a nice chocolate coffee, medium body.

Bottle pour, big thanks to Brad for this Canadian wale. Black with tan head. Aroma is pure coffee. Taste is almost all coffee with hints of bourbon. Tastes almost exactly like the non -bal version. Not my style really, so much coffee.
