4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at home. Pitch black pour with a creamy brown head. The aroma has notes of sweet bourbon, vanilla, sweet roasted malt, chocolate and loads of ripe fruit. The flavor is very intense. A great mix if sweet bourbon, raisins, chocolate, oak and sweet roasted malt. Only downside is that it becomes a bit sweet in the long run but very tasty indeed.

On tap at 312 block party. Poured black with a rim of tan. Insane complex aroma of vanilla choc bourbon, sweet and intoxicating. Oily light bitter bourbon taste. Ultra easy to drink, aged well.

Really lucky to try this one at the Meridian Pint Goose Island migration week in Washington, D.C. Very tasty. Great flavor. This and King Hengry were the best of the night.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a bottle served at Church Key. Pours black with almost no head. The aroma is sublime. I could just inhale this beer and never drink it and still be satisfied. The mouthfeel is thick and viscous. Flavors of bourbon,vanilla, licorice, and some chocolate. This is one amazing beer. Really appreciate that the good folks at Goose Island brought a case and poured 2 oz pours -- for free!

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle share. Bomber bottle 11704, dated Nov 19, 2010. The colour is so white, you lose it in the sun, even hours after sunset. Aroma of vanilla, molasses, super powerful whiskey, coffee, chocolate, more whiskey, then whiskey burn. Taste is glorious of all the above, but way more smooth than expected from the whiskey aroma. Quite dry, but damn if it doesn't make your mouth water.

4.9 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Black pour, minimal tan head. Nose is bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts, dark fruits, some chocolate. Taste is bourbon, dark fruits, some chocolate, some prunes. Everything meshes together flawlessly. The only thing I wasnít too crazy about was the prune notes--would have much preferred more prominent rich chocolate raspberry notes. Rich thick mouthfeel. As excellent as advertised.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
With a whale like this, I guess I should be excited to get a 2.5 oz pour. Damn wish I had more. Scent is roasted coffee, chocolate, and sweet, sweet bourbon. Flavor follows the scent. Pours nice and black with tannish head. Thick like molasses. This is a damn good beer, but I think the Pappy hype overflows to this beer. Bottle - Square Pub - Decatur, GA
