TychoJames (1030) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2015
Flaska systembolaget. Svart vätska med ljusbrunt skum. Doft av fat, knäck, choklad och rostad malt. Söt och kraftfull smak med återigen mycket knäckighet. Smörkola, choklad och bourbon. Rund och fin munkänsla där alkoholstyrkan ligger som en värmande grund. Fantastisk

tightslice (890) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Bottle from Whole Foods Market in Mountain View, CA ($29.99). Aroma is chocolate liqueur, cherries, coconut, some smoke. Taste is smooth, chocolate-y, fruity...gets more and more complex with each sip. Do yourself a favor and grab a friend, a fire, some backwoods and a bottle of this. You won’t be disappointed.

22oz bottle with purple wax. Pours a very deep caramel brown with a nice tan head, light lacing. Great nose of light bourbon notes along with vanilla, toffee and caramel. Nice and drinkable, not overbearing.

Bottle generously shared by a BA at the Rapture release. Poured a pitch black body under a brown long lasting head. Aroma of coconut, vanilla, bourbon, oak, charcoal and chocolate cake. Fuller syrupy body with a touch of obvious heat. Flavor of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, tobacco, tar. Good good stuff.
