TheAlum (6146) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle shared at Dan’s Birthday Tasting (Lyons, IL). Pours a richer blackish pour, good haziness, with a nice brownish glow on the edges. A frothy tannish head is a decent size, sits around and laces ok. Aromas are gentle cocoa, toast and toffee. Some gentle spirit, oak, and vanilla. A bit sweeter and sticky. Initial is firmer, medium bodied, a touch heavier with cocoa, toffee, and toast. Decent spirit. A bit of a condensed sweeter element hangs around. Some oatmeal, black malts, some toffee and toast. Vanilla, gentle spirit. Middle is a bit fuzzy, warm and spirit driven. A bit warm, some gentle carmelization and toast, toffee, coffee roast into the backend. Some roast, toast, a bit harsher and dry, warmth as we finish. Nice beer, a bit warm. The Iced element thickens it up a bit. Nice.

JohnnyJ (4783) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 13, 2013
Bottle thanks to timfoolery. Dark off-brown pour, with a thin light tan head. Sweet caramel, toffee, vanilla, oak, chocolate, plum, and light bourbon. Very smooth, the barrel aging is well done, and little to no booziness. Actually easy drinking for what it is. Good.

Ernesto987 (4394) - Arizona, USA - APR 13, 2015
bottle thanks for Dak, thanks man! Tons and tons of molasses, honey, and dark sugar syrup. Tasted like a jar of barrel aged molasses! I was very tempted to unICE it with my water glass. Lots of flavors in there but i can’t get past the rampant sweetness. It’s hurting my teeth.

MrHangover (3060) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2013
Bottle thnx to timfoolery @ WWT II. This pours a jet black coloured beer with a small beige head that leaves quickly. Aroma is alcoholic, bourbon oak, molasses and caramel. Awesome aroma. Flavour definitely has the bourbon influences present, alonside some heavy alcohol and sweet caramel touches. Very well balanced between the oak influences and the alcoholic content. Awesome brew!
