I'm not well versed in the art of beer reviews so I'm not going to make up a bunch of stuff. I will say that it is a hearty beer that does not go too strong on the bourbon flavor.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
2014 vinatge, bottle. Pours a pitch black, fairly opaque with a nice bubbly mocha colored head that breaks into a nice ring around the glass with some spotty lacing. Nose is loaded with bourbon, wet oak, dark chocolate and coffee. Taste is silky smooth with the chocolate and coffee dancing around the palate early before moving into a bittering tobacco/dark chocolate/char notes. The coffee lingers into the vanilla, oak and the bourbon finishes them all off nicely! Great beer!

660ml bottle - thanks VastActiv and the rest of the Hel crowd!
Black with reddish glints, small tan head. Sticky roasty aroma, ooooh - crazy sweet. Taste is just stupidly sweet. Some vanilla is nice. But apart from that all I’m getting is sweetness, sugar, sweet stuff, sugary stuff, and sweetness. Predictably sticky palate. Almost undrinkable due to its absurd sugariness.

2014 vintage bomber poured into proprietor’s glass. Poured dark black with a minimal head. Knock your socks off bourdon and dark chocolate aromas. I mean wow, incredible. Incredible dark coffee and chocolate taste, strongly accompanied by the bourbon. What an incredible beer. Wish I had the pleasure of this wonderful brew every night.

Its been a long time since I’ve had it. Pour from a bottle is a nice opaque black with a sweet malty aroma. Taste is coffee with a hint of chocolate. Leaves a smooth rich after taste.
