Aniela (2302) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUN 9, 2013
Bottle. Dark brown/black beer with a minimal offwhite head. Chocolate, tar, coffee and vanilla aroma. Coconut, chocolate, spicy, vanilla and a bit too much alcohol flavour.

Hoppypocket (408) - Trois-rivieres, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
Pours a pitch black with no head and no lacing. Aroma of bourbon, coffee, vanilla, roasted. Taste has lots of bourbon, coffee, vanilla, dark fruits, oak, roasted malts, brown suggar. Full body and minimal carb. Really good but that 12oz pour is killing me...

Chipalsa (1306) - Florida, USA - MAY 25, 2013
650ml bottle thanks to OmegaX
Appearance - Deep brown, frothy head
Aroma - Dirt and coffee inside a bourbon barrel
Taste - Chocolate, cherries, vanilla, oak, earthiness, smooth bourbon, bitter coffee finish

The aroma captured here is amazing, and the flavor matched quite nicely without being too boozy. These guys sure are talented.

OmegaX (1156) - Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Snifter pour. Aroma is big time barrel notes. Bourbon galore, with some dark chocolate, some earthiness, and dirty leaves. Flavor matches, with a nice vanilla and bourbon flavor on top of chocolate and dirt. Pretty interesting.

drowland (5958) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - MAY 20, 2013
Bottle shared by someone during RBWG-JAX. Thanks! Black pour with a small tan head. The aroma shows nice barrel, touches of fudge, that goes well with the coffee, dark roasted malts, spice, and plenty of sweetness resembling brown sugar, molasses, etc. The flavor follows suit. Tasty stuff, but I don’t see the crazy over HF like some do.

piscator34 (1888) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - MAY 18, 2013
Bottled sample via and shared with oakbluff. Near black in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of coffee, molasses, booze, and wintergreen. Flavors are pretty much what you’d expect, with elements of coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, bourbon, and a bit of wet stones on the finish. Heavy bodied in a good way. Solid overall.

ReggieDunlap (2927) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2013
2012 bottle...pours pitch black with a medium mocha head...looks thick. Aroma has nice bourbon atop notes of toasted coconut, vanilla, and dsrk chocolate. Flavor has sweet brown sugar, coffee, rich caramel, roasty dark chocolate, and wonderful bourbon. Mouthfeel is full and creamy with a sweet coffee/warming bourbon finish. Awesome dessert beer!

jackl (3862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 15, 2013
Bottle @ Stouts Tasting Pt II. The pour’s deep brown with a tiny head. The nose is Swiss Miss hot cocoa. Ash. Roast malts. Hint of honeycomb and woody vanilla. The taste is quite sweet. Mashed banana and chocolate syrup. Slightly yeasty. Some toffee and coffee cake. Full body. Slightly oily. Overall, quite good. A step down after the dizzying heights of Jimmy.

Scopey (5528) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 10, 2013
Bottle consumed at THE stouts tasting part 2, thanks to Leighton. It pours very dark brown with pretty much no head. The nose is roasty, vanilla, toasted coconut, caramel and chocolate gateaux. The taste is pretty sweet, honey, rich-roasted coffee, toast, earth, light bitterness, burnt notes and chocolate gateaux. Full body, low carbonation and viscous, slightly cloying mouth-feel. Tasty, but a bit too sweet and chewy for me.
