Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 11, 2014
650 mL bottle. Pours very dark brown with fine light brown head. Settles in minutes with minimal lacing. Aroma is chocolate, big sweet bourbon, nutty, toasted, roasted malt and caramel. Flavor is sweet and caramel, up front, big chocolate, sweet bourbon, vanilla and caramel, with a huge chocolate and roasted finish. Not a tone of coffee, lots of caramelized sugar and toffee, more like a mocha. Almost reminiscent of Batch 3 Uncle Jacob’s in some respects. Very soft carbonation, medium-full body, and smooth texture. Very rich and well done.

jkwood04 (3937) - Connecticut, USA - APR 7, 2014
22oz bottle in a teku. Pours black with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon and oak, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, almond, and hints of dark fruits. Flavor the same with an amazing blend of the bourbon, dark malts, and added ingredients. Thick texture. An awesome beer.

budznsudz (557) - Audubon, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours dark as night with a frothy tan head. The aroma is super rich chocolate, vanilla, graham cracker, and barrel. The taste is decadent and smooth with creamy chocolate, vanilla, roast, caramel, fudge cake, and whiskey barrel. Delicious stuff.

TheEpeeist (3346) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2014
22 oz bottle. Dark brown with a creamy tan head. Nose is bourbon, coffee, vanila, hay and almond. Foamy medium to full body with a tang. Taste is mostly bourbon, hints of vanilla, coffee and almost burnt almond oil. The barrel obscures some of the nicer base flavors.

Dfonorow (1440) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Bottle share in 2013. Pour is dark brown with a small khaki head. Aroma is of chocolate malt, roast, vanilla extract, bourbon, and brown sugar. Flavor is a heavy mix of roast and sugar - maple, bourbon, wood, oak, and coffee.

Rando7 (736) - Iowa, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Bottle pours black with one finger brown head. Aroma chocolate and bourbon. Taste follows with chocolate and bourbon with roast, licorice and oak. Finish mainly a continuation of the taste. Thick creamy palate. Very well done.

BoBoChamp (5443) - Gent, BELGIUM - FEB 28, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2014 65cl, new exclusive Danish brew Anno 2013, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex Stout, roasted/sweet and slightly alcoholic/fruity, yet not too heavy, very balanced, hazy, small head, top class!, yet very expensive!

Ferris (4125) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle - Chocolate and then a hot bourbon, maybe too much bourbon. Jet black with a rich brown head. Lots of bourbon, oak notes and then into a nice rich chocolate. Bourbon is much more subdued than the smell, but I would still prefer the original. The bourbon adds some nice notes, but takes away the subtlety of the other versions.

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Pours a thick black from the bottle with lasting tan brown head that leaves light webs and oily residue. Aroma is chocolate and vanilla, a sweet alcoholic mocha. Taste follows, adult chocolate milk for sure. Thick and viscous, a slight hint of bread, but all sweet awesome, hint of bitter coffee on the back of the tongue. Amazing.

Bottle. Pours oily black with brown head. Nose and taste of bourbon, oak, fudge brownie, almonds, vanilla and chocolate cream pie. Deep roast. Full bodied.
