baraciisch (2244) - 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

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 (4128) - 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 (7345) - 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.

lusikka (6949) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
650 ml bottle. Pours a pitch black colour with a beige creamy head. Aroma of rich roastiness, vanilla, wood, bourbon and raisiny sweetness. Flavour of really strong rich roastiness, mudcake, strong sweet bourbon, raisin, plums, tart wooden notes and vanilla. The amount of bourbon is rather extreme here. Full bodied. Velvety mouthfeel. Soft. Hits my sweet spot.

tiong (4565) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2015
650ml bottle from APEX, Portland, OR

Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of bourbon, roasty malts, dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, oak, vanilla and toffee. Taste is smooth, roasty and woody with loads of bourbon, oak, vanilla, toffee and coffee. Finish is complex, woody and roasty with loads of bourbon, oak, toffee and vanilla. Quite complex, yet very balanced. Not overly sweet or stuffy, but nuanced and delicate. Great stuff.

65 cl bottle @ lusikka. Thanks tiong!
Aroma has sweet cocoa tones, semi-dark chocolate and some cocoa. Also vanilla. Flavour has woody tones, lots of bourbon, woody tones, vanilla and some non-disturbing alcohol. Rather strong on bourbon and rather delicious.

JStax (3548) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2015
22 ounce bottle poured into a big snifter. The beer is a thick, oily black with a khaki colored head of foam. The aroma has big vanilla and wafer. Some bitter dark chocolate, boozy warmth. Fairly sweet. Really enjoying the vanilla aspects of this beer. Thicker mouthfeel and soft carbonation.
