Bottle shared by TheAlum in the GTWM ticket line, thanks Adam! Pours a murky brown with a thin diminishing head and very little lacing, the aroma has a ton of chocolate and molasses, the flavor is sweet with a lot of chocolate and some bourbon notes coming through in the finish, really slick mouthfeel, this is a big beer.

madvike (2733) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 20, 2012
Bottle shared by TheAlum in the GTMW ticket line...thanks Adam! - Pours murky brown with a filmy tan head. Nose is caramel with chocolate, adn some sweet boozy barrel character. Big sweet brown sugar taste, a little too far on the sweet side for my tastes. Milk chocolate, bourbon, and cocoa notes. Slick and big, with minimal carbonation.

emacgee (4025) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Pours a rich brown with some haze. Two fingers of rich and creamy dark brown head. Nose is rich and malt forward, lots of burnt sugar and caramel with hints of treacle and black molasses. Rich and warming, alcohol kind of sharp and the malt character a little intense. Lots of burnt sugar and dark ass caramel. Full bodied with sharp alcohol.

22oz bottle scored the BA Gang Bang BIF. 22oz bottle pours a translucent, deep mahogany brown with some creamy, beige head. Nose of brown malts, brown sugar, some pitted fruit, whiskey. Flavor is a little harsh, really sweet and boozy, light brown sugar, a little caramel, a little breakfast cereal. Full bodied, boozy finish. I thought this was a good idea that was poorly executed.

(22oz bottle courtesy of jcnd9803!) Pours dark brown with a tan head. Aroma has booze, cocoa and caramel. Taste is sweet malt and some lingering bitterness. Medium bodied with a slick texture. Bitter finish yet smooth. ABV is well hidden. Pretty good beer.

(22oz bomber 2010 vintage thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium brown with a few bubbles. Nose of earth, weird florals and dry cocoa. Taste of bourbon, bit of alcohol, maple, light chocolate wafers. Nice linger, toasty finish.

Poured from a 22oz bottle from Deyholla. Pours dark brown with about 2 fingers of light tan head. Nose is lots of toffee and caramel with a bit of medicinal alcohol. Taste is toffee, caramel and chocolate with just a touch of bitterness at the back end.
