Tastes thick and rich on the palate, with heavy oaky bourbon flavor, roasty dark malt, molasses, and prune. Finishes a bit hot, thivk, complex, and rich. This one is great.

Dogbrick (10421) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Thanks to Beer Savant for sharing 2011 vintage bottle during his 50th birthday bash. This beer pours a brownish-black color with a medium thin foamy beige head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky vanilla, bourbon and dark chocolate. The finish is boozy with vanilla and roast malt aftertaste. Good beer all around.

JulienHuxley (5207) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 6, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown/black pour with brown head. Aroma is really "sweet", lots of honey, creme brulée, sweet bourbon vanilla. Taste is much the same, really sweet, dessert-like, honey, vanilla and caramelized sugar. Palate is rich, almost cloying, with smooth carbonation. Decent.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
Bottle from Pier-luc and Julien, thanks! Pours a pitch black with a small black head that doesnt last really long. No lacing. Aroma is full of vanilla, some cocoa, coconut. Taste is still loaded with vanilla, cocoa, honey, oak. Full body and low carbonation. A desert beer. Probably the stout that has the most vanilla flavor that i had yet (didnt have bcbvs).
