4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by ygtbsm94: Pours an oily opaque with a thin ring of dark tan head. Has an intense sweet roasted dark caramel and chocolate malty nose with some dark fruits and vanilla bourbon complexity. Starts with a smooth, yet rich dark malty sweetness with a nice dark fruity complexity and vanilla flavor before a slightly warming, but balanced finish. A very complex and enjoyable beer, but I think it’s probably at its peak now as far as aging goes.

Dark brown, almost black
gorgeous nose! coconut and bourbon. very rich.
Full body and moderately fizzy
actually might be a bit too sweet & bourbony. alcohol balances pretty well but not as much as possible.
taste is a gorgeous, sweet dark chocolate, rich bourbon and raisins, maple syrup. if this was a tad less sweet it would be amazing! I couldn’t drink very much of this, much less a whole bottle.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
[22oz bottle courtesy of Jason @cgarvieuk tasting] Totally black with a very thin lacing that reduces to nothing quickly. Big-hitting bourbon aromas with rich stone fruit, coffee and a touch of coconut. Massive whisky taste - dark, roasty and sweet on the aftertaste. Long and rich - there’s a punch at the moment of swallow - it really gets you in the back of the throat. A really well crafted beer - albeit bourbon aged beers not really my thing

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle 2724, shared 4 ways. Thick, oily black pour, thin to no head with nice legs on the glass. Aroma had decadent notes of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, touch of roast, coffee, and some other sugar sweet notes of molasses. Taste is thick dark fruit, chocolate, toffee, vanilla, sweet smooth bourbon, and a nice sweet finish. Dense flavors, creamy and full-bodied. Excellent beer, really wish it wasn’t $50.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: DEC 16, 2011 Trade from phaleslu. Thanks so much. Pours black as night with some hints of red in certain light. Head was a small, fast diminishing light brown. The aroma of this beer was amazing. Had with A 2009 GIBCS and this beer had alot more bourbon in the nose. Behind the bourbon there were hints of vanilla, dark fruits and licorice. Full bodied with some wonderful soft carbonation. Started sweet and finished with a pleasant alcohol burn. A beautiful beer.
