DocLock (7682) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours thick jet black with 1-finger tan head and concentric lace rings that stay around forever. Nose is roasty chocolate malt, corn flakes, oaky whisky, cacao, prune. Tastes rich, dry, complex, with a roasty chocolate malt flavor, cacao, blackberry, oaky port, hops, and black cherry notes. Well hidden alcohol. This one is very good, and an example of barrel aging done the correct way, the best beer by Full Pint, and proof that these guys are on their way up the ladder.

On tap at DLD 2014. Pour is black with no head. Aroma and flavor of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, roasted malt, and rye. Well balanced, alcohol is hidden, just a bit boring.

Transfer from BA review on 5-27-12- Poured from bottle into a snifter Appearance – The beer pours a thick deep brown almost black color with a one finger tan head. The head is small but has fantastic retention with it fading very slowly over time to give a very nice amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is heavy of roasted dark bread and very light amount of dark fruit. These aromas are mixed with a light chocolate a good dose of a boozy aroma. Taste – The taste starts out of roasted malt and some sweet dark fruit and caramel taste. These tastes slowly transition in the middle losing some of the dark fruit flavors with the bready flavors getting more intense toward the middle. The breadiness is mixed with some chocolate and a bourbon flavor that intensifies to the end of the taste. In the end the taste is nice of chocolate-rye whisky with notes of booziness, cocoa and rye bread. Mouthfeel – The body is very thick and smooth and coats the tongue with all the flavors of the brew. The initial sweeter tastes and the later more bitter/boozy tastes really get to sink into the tongue. The carbonation level in some ways takes away from the creamy body however as it is slightly higher than normal for a beer of this beers strength. While slightly over-carbonated, the mouthfeel is still overall quite good giving a nice warming feel. Overall – This beer has some very nice characteristics. It has a nice look good roasty and bourbon flavors that transition well throughout the taste as well as a very nice creamy body.

Pailhead (4572) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy chocolate, molasses, caramel, vanilla, faint smoke, and dark fruits. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a minimal beige head that mostly consists of some steak bubbles. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and molasses. There is a touch of grain in the middle. The finish has roasted coffee, caramel, faint burnt notes, vanilla, coconut, and a touch of oak. It’s medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours dark brown to black with a thin beige film. The aroma and flavor have a nice chocolate character, mild roast, dark fruits, bourbon, vanilla, and a touch of spicy rye. Enough flavor to help balance the barrel. The real knock on this is the thin mouthfeel and lighter body. I would like to see this be a bit bigger.

3/30/14. Draft at the Beer Market. Poirs dark red brown with a one finger head in a 10 oz tulip glass. Light roasty nose. Dark flavor notes without much sweetness or bourbon notes. Nicely balanced with rye giving it a nice mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

b3shine (5132) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks good; a fairly opaque dull dark (almost black) cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells of dark malt, dark chocolate, oak, and rye with some mild roast as well. Tastes like it smells with a mild whiskey presence. Solid on the palate. Good, not great.

DrSilverworm (5899) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 26, 2014
On tap at Dutch’s. Black color, with a thin tan head, leaves good bits of lace. Love the bitter dark chocolate flavor on this. Big roast, light smoke. Good dark cocoa. Some dark fruity notes come out later. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light sweet, and a light bit of warmth. Medium to bigger body, could stand to use a bit more chewiness, but still a nice texture to it. Very tasty, complex rye barrel aged imperial stout. Great one to pair with smoked cheese.

Tmoney99 (10400) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 24, 2014
Draft. Poured dark brown color with an average tan frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roast malt, rye and vanilla wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good drinkable brew.
