On tap at the Tempe location as well as at RBWG 2011. Pours charcoal in color with a ruby tint around the edges and a creamy brown head. Smells and tastes predominatly of bourbon, cinnamon, toasted coconut, and cranberries. Additional notes of tannins, belgian yeast, and oak in the flavor. Round red grape and biscuity malt profile on the mid with a dryness on the finish. Delicious. Next to Sirius Black this is the best beer I’ve ever had from Four Peaks and maybe from Arizona. Thank you for donating a 5 gallaon keg for our Winter Gathering. Definitely above and beyond.

DesertDevil (496) - Arizona, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Sample at the Arizona Strong Beer Fest. Pours a clear dark black. Slightly sour grapes and dark, roasted malt dominate the aroma with some spiced oak, dried fruit, and a touch of Belgian yeast. Taste of sweet grape juice, balsamic vinegar, slight tannins, prunes, a bit of tobacco, and light cocoa. The sweet and sour create a pleasant balance. One of my favorite Four Peaks brews.

Tmoney99 (10544) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Draft. Poured black color with an average brown frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt, tannic and wood aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy dark malt and tannic wood flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This beer would go well with a cigar and surpassed my expectations.
