UPDATED: JUN 13, 2013 Pitch black pour with a feathery lingering head that’s khaki in color. Lacing from foam is clinging to the glass. Aroma of sweet dark chocolate with bourbon accents backing up the malt. Round milk chocolate taste with thin lingering finish of bourbon vanilla and a mild 80% dark cocoa finish. Nice dry powdery dark chocolate lingeringfor some time on the palate.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft from the source. Pours nearly pitch black with medium head and soapy lacing. Aromas of bourbon, bakers chocolate, and vanilla beans. Flavors are the same with the most luxurious dark chocolate truffle amidst some pecan and a dash of spice from the bourbon. The epitome of a desert beer. Astonishing.

Draft at 80/20 burger bar. Pours a deep brown color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is light, sweet chocolate milk, touch of roasted malts. Flavor is much more pleasant, big chocolate, vanilla, milk. Not much bourbon, but still a delicious beer!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours from a bottle a deep brown black with a khaki head. Aroma is of bourbon, baker’s chocolate. Flavor is rich: chocolate, fig, vanilla-oaky-bourbon. A nice alcohol. Well-balanced roasty sweetness with a hit of delicate burnt bitterness. Nice full mouthfeel. A very good beer. If I keep drinking more of it I might have to rate it higher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a jet black color with no lacing or head retention. Smells of vanilla and bourbon. Tastes like bourbon right up front with a vanilla and caramel finish. A very solid beer, and one that I would look for again.
