Dogbrick (8141) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2013
2012 bottle. Pours a brownish-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla and coconut. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky vanilla, roasted malt and dark chocolate. The finish is roasty with a chocolate and coconut aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Nocturne (786) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Sample from bottle. Dark black with a thin brown head. Splendid aroma with forceful maltiness and coffee. More roast and coffee in the taste with a vanilla accent. Mouthfeel is great but carbonation is sorely lacking. Would be approaching the outstanding category if it were not flat.

burg326 (3699) - Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle poured a black color with aromas of roast, chocolate, booze, light vanilla, and some light earth. Flavors are fudgey brownies dipped in bourbon, delicious in every way possible, thanks for sharing this one Glen.

Pour is black, with a brown hue, and a thing ring of off-white head. Aroma has plenty of chocolate, with plenty of bourbon notes. Slight coffee, caramel, bourbon-soaked dark fruits, vanilla, slight roasted notes, slight wood, licorice, slight (very slight) green hoppy notes. There really is a lot going on in this on, and everything is mellowed by the smoothing bourbon sensation. The taste is quite sweet upfront, with bitter - and slight salty notes to it as well. I think this is quite well balanced and smooth, with a little heat to it. Medium and oily bodied, with a very flat carbonation. (I read that Batch 2 was a "flat batch"?) Thanks a lot to Ryan for giving me a shot at this.

bytemesis (3157) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 26, 2013
Bottle - thanks Adam! Pours opaque black with a small dark brown creamy head that dissipates very slowly with great lacing. Flavor is bourbon, roasty coffee, anise, cocoa, very rich and thick. Medium sweet, medium bitter, just a touch of astringence. Full bodied and creamy.

Godofthecellar (669) - NYC, New York, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Poured pitch black with no head. Nose was boozy, bourbon, bakers chocolate. Taste was very boozy, sweetness from bourbon, espresso on back end and more booz. Reminded me of deliverance by lost abby

Bottle at Armin’s, courtesy of Armin. Thanks man!! Pour is deep viscous black with a very small brown head. Sweet malty, bourbon, coconut, raisins, figs, caramelly, brown sugar, and vanilla aroma. Taste is big chocolate, anise, coconut, light vanilla, oak, bourbon, leathery, and nutty with a touch of alcohol on the backend. Syrupy mouthfeel with very soft carbonation. Nice stuff.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 20, 2013
Pour out of 500 mL bottle, thanks Kerry! Dark black pour with a thin white head, aroma brought notes of nice vanilla, coffee, earth, nice bourbon, slight oak, finishing fairly dessert like. Taste is a mix of big coffee, vanilla, nice chocolate, dark cocoa, nice bourbon, finishing fairly sweet, but nice bourbon, bitter, oak. Nice, not bad actually even with a slightly low carb level.

deyholla (6642) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours black with a creamy dark brown head that dissipates to the edges quickly. Aroma has a good amount of musty coffee and musty dark grains with a bit of underlying bourbon. Flavor has sweet but musty dark grains with underlying bourbon and a decent amount of wet coffee backing. Mouth feel is a bit odd.
