McNeillR (2209) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Dark brown with another decent ruby glint. Less greasy lacing and more of a crater of tan head. Rich, singing bourbon with not too much sweetness. Initial taste is soft, tarry dried cola nuts and a sway of greasy bitterness. Lean roast, greasy mouthfeel and not too viscous. Finishes with a bot of heat and not a lot of dusty sweetness that was hinted at initial.

baraciisch (2823) - California, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Pitch black in color, thin mahogany head... Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate... Butterscotch notes initially, lots of vanilla and chocolate... Really sweet, bourbon notes are fairly light... Amazingly good, better than speedway for sure... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

edwardbass (783) - Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2015
From a bomber. The bourbon is fairly subdued, though it does tingle on the tongue a bit. Black color. Aroma is like crazy, like a sweet cookie. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, some vanilla. Good stuff.

maxwelldeux (4342) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near black color with a moderate darker brown head on there. Nose has some roasty and bready notes to it with a really great bourbon complement to it. Taste has some sweet booziness from the bourbon along with chocolate and coffee. Really pleasant beer.

olio (9188) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
65 cl bottle.
Pours soul-sucking black color with a very small beige head. Lots of bourbon on the nose, vanilla, dark chocolate, faint coffee notes, caramel and some faint syrup. Very thick oily palate with lots of dark malts and molasses, bourbon, dark chocolate, faint syrup, vanilla and some espresso. Not overly sweet, nice vanilla-chocolate-coffee balance here. Excellent.
