I really enjoyed this one. Snifter pour. This one looked as you might expect with a solid black body and a tan head. The aroma was excellent with such a smooth vanilla and bourbon aroma behind the chocolate and fudge notes. Lightly roasty. Flavor was big vanilla and bourbon with cocoa, chocolate, roast, and a hint of coffee and caramel. I could have easily kept drinking this all night.

Thanks for the share, Jordanian. This is my first impression of FiftyFifty brewing - and I was impressed. The pour was a bold black with a full body and a thick, Whopper candy head. The aroma was full of fudge, caramel, smoke and oak with hints of bourbon and vanilla. Again, with a full body the creamy mocha flavors crash with dank hops, dark chocolate and molasses with a layer of oak to calm the palate. What a treat this was :-).

Gerbeer (1780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 22 oz bottle. 2012 vintage. Pours black with light to moderate tan head. Aromas of rich dark roasted malts, pumpernickel/oatmeal, and alcohol. Flavors are similar with notes of toasted coconut and licorice. Big, full, and boozy. Very good but over priced - at least double that of equally good or better barrel aged Imperials.

_angst_ (2777) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2014
Bottle bought through Systembolaget. Pours reddish black with a frothy blackish beige head that leaves a small trace on the glass while dissipating. Smell is slightly sweet and malty with roasted malts, high quality dark chocolate, vanilla fudge, charred wood, sweetened dark roast coffee, soy sauce, dark roast coffee, liquorice fudge and hints if nose tingling alcohol. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with heavily roasted malts, charred wood, vanilla fudge, toffee, moist soil, vanilla hard candy, shredded coconut, roasted hazelnuts, dark roast coffee, liquorice fudge, toffee and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, velvety, round, tiny roasted astringent and near full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, vanilla fudge, bourbon, soil, shredded coconut, burnt caramel, toffee, charred wood, liquorice fudge and hints of alcohol. Balanced and very tasty...
