Near brown color with a hint of cherry color when swirled in the glass. Heavy malt aromas with a mild fruit, especially berry background. It think I read that this had been aged on cranberries. Flavor start sweet with caramel and toffee, a slight blending of the fruit in the middle and a touch of spice in the finish and into the linger with just a bit of alcohol. Slightly warming. A nice winter warmer.

Sampled at FoBAB 09. Yeah, I was feeling naughty. Dark pour with little tan head. Bourbony sweet aroma. A bit too sweet of flavor. Caramel and toffee, and enough fruit to make me wonder whether there was actually fruit in this. Pretty cool for a big beer.

FoBAB. Pour is black with thin tan head. Aroma is fruity, sweet, boozy, bourbon, and light acidity. Flavor is really much sweeter and fruitier than expected. The coffee and woodiness try to balance the sweetness, but overall the berry flavor dominates. It’s interesting, but I think the berry flavor overwhelmed me.

I had this right after the Night Stalker, and while I thought it to be good, Night Stalker was a very tough act to follow. This beer struck as me being similar, but lighter and with significantly less hoppiness. It pours black, with decent head. Aroma was dark and roasty with a good amount of chocolate and nuttiness. Seemed more reminiscent of a Porter to me than anything else. Flavor was really rather sweet and offered more roastiness, but again, seemed mild following the Night Stalker. Mouthfeel was pretty light. Not bad. I had this on-tap at the brewery.

tmoreau (3771) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - MAR 8, 2009
On tap at Wrigleyville before DotLA. Poured a cloudy, dark brown tone, with a modest, foamy head and the same foamy lacing. The aroma was pleasant roastiness with some sweetness of caramel and molasses. Just a light touch of roasted coffee was also present. The flavor carried over all these but the coffee, and added malty, tangy and bitter notes. The body was medium to full, with a nice, creamy mouthfeel, and a dry/bitter finish. A very good taste bud prep for the rest of the day.

slitcher (267) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - MAR 5, 2009
On draft @ the Clybourn location. Pours an extremely dark brown, almost looks like a stout. Thin tan head. Aroma of dark bown sugar. Fairly thick and sweet with just enough hop bitterness to balance it out, all though the bitterness is not noticed much until the finish. A good sipping beer.

TheAlum (6991) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 22, 2009
Poured draft on tap the the cybourne brewpub (chicago, il). Pours a very dark opaque blackish brown with nice brownish head that laces in a tulip. Aromas are very nice brown, slight nut, malty, nice sweetness with a touch of booze, brown sugar, and creamy sweetness. Initial is very welcoming, assertive malting with nice sweetness, nut, and nice balance with hopping to match. Finishes a little vinous, subtle dark fruits and carmel and brown sugar with a bitterness on the backend. A little thick.

I had this after the Imperial Coffee Bourbon beer @ Goose right now and this was decent, but not in the same league. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of dark fruit and malt. Flavor is much the same with thick sweet malt and some dark fruit and a touch of hops. Decent.
