Pours a very dark brown with med tan head. I smell malt, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and some tart sweet fruit. I taste all of the same! It’s kind of sweet and sour, very complex. Damn Good!!!

650 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with moderate lacing, over a clear, dark brown/black (SRM 40) body....nose is fruits including pomegranate, plum, raisin, brown sugar, hints of whiskey....taste is sweet with tones of molasses, pomegranate, plum, brown sugar, raisin, hints of coffee, cocoa, chocolate, light whiskey, vinous tones, finishing with light bitterness.....mouth feel thick, quite sticky, mildly astringent, alcohol warmth present, carbonation adds light tingle. This is a rich, very sweet, complex, voluptuous beer, that is reminiscent of many dessert wines. It would not be good in a desert. The sweetness, although with many layers, dominates. This is not a beer for those who like dry, hoppy, clean finishing beers. BJCP 8/3/15/4/7

Dark brown pour with small tan head that quickly fades. Aroma of chocolate, malts, molasses, vanilla, caramel and red wine. Taste of malts, caramel, vanilla, molasses, ripe red fruits. Slightly tart and sour in the background. Lots going on in this one, very enjoyable all round.

OmegaX (1275) - Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2013
Awesome stuff. On tap at Oblivion. Nose is big pomegranate, bourbon, vanilla, toffee, molasses, and chocolate/roast. This beer is almost chewy. Thick, black, motor oil pour. Taste follows up like the aroma. Big time red/dark fruits with plenty of chocolate and bourbon, some nuts, caramel, vanilla, and a touch of alcohol. Very rich. Great stuff.

Bottle shared with Mike and Tom. Pours a clear ruby tinged brown amber with a thin white head. Big funky sour fruit on the nose. Bourbon, vanilla and wood. Medium bodied, sweet and warm, bourbon and toast, none of the sourness from the nose carries over. Warm and fruity. Chewy tannins. Warm bourbon on the finish. Lingering bourbon and plums. Faintest hints of funkiness at the end. Wonder if this would get some more depth in year or two.

Wordsworth (132) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2013
This beer rocks. Bomber poured in pint. Awesome dark dark red color with a thin khaki head. Smells fruity and of sweet molasses. The flavor profile is eye popping and bounces off the tongue. So much going on. Passion fruit, molasses, caramel, whiskey and everything in between. A truly awesome beer. One of a kind.

Ahhh finally found this beer (Oblivion Taproom). The pour was a brilliant deep red with silky lacing. The aroma was of chocolate, molasses, oak, vanilla and raisins. This one packed some serious flavor, a lot like liquor-soaked, chocolate-covered raisins with lots of deep malt flavors. Once again does this prove why they are my favorite brewery.

Growler from Beer Street, 03/23/2013. Suppose this must be batch 2. Pours dark brown, light tan head fades relatively quickly, nice lacing. Aroma is sour cherries, slightly vinous, light vanilla with chocolate undertones, dark rye bread and bourbon notes. Taste is vanilla dark toffee, caramel, sweet, with spicy bourbon notes, maybe a bit of hoppy bitterness, light fruity tartness tickling the tongue, choclatey vinegar finish which is a bit unconventional but works. Thick and chewy palate. Nice, the sour/funky notes are light overall and compliment the dark malty base very well.
