4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Poured from bottle into snifter glass. Wonderful aroma filled with sweet dark chocolate and coffee with a moderate whiskey background. Flavor follows suit. Rich chocolate flavor, strong coffee, and pronounced whiskey barrel. This is not a subtle beer but it is well balanced. Good mouthfeel with moderate carb, almost thick body and light oily texture. A winner.

Release #38. Pours black almost oil like, with very dark tan head. Whiskey, roasted malt, atrong coffee, and some chocolate on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with whiskey and coffee notes. Time will help this.

Tap at the brewery. Pours a dark brown / black. Thin khaki head. Aroma is cocoa, licorice, vanilla, black coffee, toasted malts. Thick, complex aroma. Taste is complex, cocoa, vanilla coffee. Toasted grains, malt. Faint sweetness. Palate is thick bodied, medium carbonation. Syrupy, with nice mouthfeel and complex, changing aftertaste. Like a good espresso. Fantastic beer. Canít tell that it has such high ABV.

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very thick almost syrup in the air aroma. Lots of dark chocolate and maybe a hint of cherry. Pure black, thin dark brown head. Lots of small bubbles, they seem to mix the beer into your tongue. Very full bodied, coffee, desserty, warming alcohol heat. Great beer.

Shared in red solo cups under the shelter on a beautiful Thursday. Opaque black with a thin tan head. Hard to tell much else. Aroma is awesome, cocoa powder, coffee, dark roast, a bit of vanilla. Taste is good but less of a superstar compared to the nose. Thereís whisky heat, cocoa and roasted malt sweetness, and coffee bitterness. Medium body, oily texture, moderate carbonation, some heat and bitterness on the finish.
