[6135-20140121] Bottle. Roasty dark fruit aroma hints at a bandaid background. Black body with a quick foamy tan head. Roasted fruity bourbon flavour has a bit of a sweet finish. Full body. Nice balance overall but just a little too much bourbon for my preference. (7/4/7/4/16) 3.8

Hmmm, i dont know why i dont have a rate for this, i remember getting a bottle from northropfrye so...sorry and thank you! Love this stuff. Oily black, with a coffee and oak nose. Taste is licorice, coffee, vanilla, bourbon although the age seems to have mellowed it a bit. Fantastic.

Bomber. Pours a pure black color with a small beige head. A big sweet whiskey barrel nose. The flavor is vanilla, hot whiskey, oak, chocolate, dark fruit. Very damn good.

This beer here, this beer I had @ the Grand Tasting... Compliments of some kind soul... that I assume is from the good old days.
Pours basically black with a small but well retained head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is chocolate and roasty with some sweeter raisin and port wine notes. It’s defiantly got some coffee going on in there... it’s a big bouquet on this one.

The flavor is rich & chocolaty... like the the point of fudge like. IT’s got a good bit of vanilla and warming booziness. It’s got a nice coffee like roastiness throughout. The barrel character is nicely integrated here for sure.

Sample at RBSG Grand Tasting. Pours almost black with a decent tan head. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, and malt. Taste is chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, roasted malt, and wood. Very good.
