From the firkin at the Raleigh Rare and Vintage Festival 2012. The guy pouring said they aged it with pear wood, vanilla beans, and cocoa nibs. Solid brown pour with no head at all. Sweet creamy vanilla, and some suntan lotion on the aroma was EXTREMELY nice. Very chocolatey on the flavor, almost like tootsie roll. Flat body, but I guess that is to be expected from firkin. Still good though. Loved the aroma.

Bottle. Pours dark black with medium thickness as it sloshes around. Thin light tan head that quickly comes to a ring. Nose is loads of chocolate, roasted malts, hints of coffee, mild bourbon notes, vanilla. Taste is fresh bourbon, wet wood, booze, cocoa, milk chocolate, touch coffee. Medium sweet, medium palate, finishes with sweet and toasty with some noticeable booze. Quite nice.

Pours a nice dark color with an off-white head. Aroma is very chocolate forward with a some notes of bourbon and roasted malt. Flavor is smooth and sweet with a chocolate bourbon flavor. Finish is heavy with notes of alcohol and hot. Mouthfeel is full and carbonation is average. Overall this is a solid beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Sweet milk chocolate, light oaky bourbon, and caramel aroma. Black with a small tan head. Sweet milk chocolate, woody spicy bourbon flavor. It was nice that the bourbon was understated and didn’t overpower the beer. Full body, average carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, dark crimson-brown, with a finger of quckly fading, light tan head. Nose is of brown sugar, vanilla, sweet rum, and sweetened chocolate. Taste starts with Oreo cookie, bourbon, and transitions into caramel and toffee, with some bitter chocolate and lightly nutty finish. Body is on the lighter side. In my opinion, this beer has a great nose, and a great taste at the start, but the taste dies off rather quickly, and I almost immediately forget how good the beer tastes in the beginning.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured black color with an average creamy tan head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted malt, chocolate, bourbon, woody and small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a rich smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy roasted sweet chocolate cream and bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy sweet smooth finish of moderate to long duration. Another solid brew.
