Thanks Erik! 12oz (or maybe 330 ml) bottle. Black as night pour with next to no head. Really dark roast. Like darkness but without the sweetness. Bourbon is very minimal, might not have even noticed it. Amazing stuff.

tom10101 (5387) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Pitch black with a medium creamy beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla, huge fudge presence, light salty notes and caramel. Taste is moderately sweet (not cloying) with an important bourbon presence, fudge, vanilla, light liquorice, caramel and a moderate to heavy warming finish. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Thick. Creamy mouthfeel. Good balance despite the huge bourbon and warming presence. Complex and really tasty. Super fudgy. Really good barrel-aged RIS.

bytemesis (6949) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle with thanks to MrH! Pours opaque black with a medium creamy brown head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is rich whiskey, wood, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor follows, medium sweet, light bitter, wonderful blend of whiskey and stout base. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty hot, which is really the only minus to this outstanding beer.
