Bottle. Lots of mocha flavors were present in this with big malt and a great bourbon flavor. Easily drinkable and excellent overall.

Poured from a 500 ml bottle. Aroma is a balanced blend of chocolate and roast. A rich bourbon character with a hint of oak and smoke compliments the malt notes. Hints of almond and vanilla from the oak. Light alcohol spice and more chocolate than roast. Pours jet black with a medium thick, mocha head that recedes fairly quickly to the edges where it lingers. Light lacing and moderately sized legs. Flavor has a medium light sweetness with a balanced roast note, but a dominant chocolate character. Some light tobacco and leather notes. Clean without much dark fruit notes. Medium bourbon notes with faint oak and light vanilla and almond. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth. Overall, a nice stout with a lot of balance. Nice malt complexity, clean fermentation character and some nice bourbon notes. I can’t remember whether I like this or M&C 2 better as its been a while since I had M&C 2.

500ml bottle pours oily dark brown black with a finger of fizzy tan foam. Nose is big nutty bourbon fruit, vanilla, oaky, spicy boozy, nutty. Taste is creamy bitter chocolate, charred brownie, sublte bourbony dark fruit, vanilla. Finish is bitter cocoa, coffee bean, vanilla, bourbon spice, touch of booze, cake. Delicious.

Bouteille de la batch 1 (merci czar et Pat). Je sais que je dois me sentir privilégié de boire cette bière, certain serait prêt à tuer pour elle. Pour moi ce genre de produit caricatural ne ma plait pas tant que ça. Nous sommes face à un monstre d’alcool, de saveurs puissantes, de chocolat, de bourbon. Un monstre j’ai dit. Le goût est bon mais est-ce vraiment ce qu’on recherche quand on débouche une bière ? Avoir le palais saturé après une gorgé et perdre l’appétit...

Another bottle from czar. Thx! Une robe noire et un pauvre anneau de mousse. Un nez comme une bombe sucrée qui, en explosant, laisse de longues traînées de chocolat, de bourbon vanillé, d’alcool, de caramel, de sirop d’érable et de raisins. Au goût, les saveurs laissent du sucre aux commissures de mes lèvres. Ce monstre est trop malté et transpire trop le bourbon. Il manque une amertume de grains noircis. En bouche, le corps est obèse mais assez pétillant. La texture est collante. En finale, c’est trop doux et trop alcoolisé. Correct, sans plus.

Beautiful head retention. Mouthfeel stands out immediately; unlike any stout I've had in this regard. Reminds me of whipped cream: air-infused, creamy, fluffy body.

Ridic aroma of roasty malts, cacao nibs, toasted caramel. Layered chocolatey barrel character, burnt caramel massages my throat as I swallow. Toasted marshmallow like a boss. Managed sweetness, yet dry overall. Wow. Thanks Greg!

GuillaumeB (1) - Quebec, CANADA - JUN 24, 2014 does not count
Bière noire épaisse, belle mousse dense couleur crème. Arômes: Bois/Vanille/Torréfié/Bourbon Saveurs: Chocolat/mélasse/Café/Vanille beaucoup de bois et bourbon, chaleur de l’alcool. Corps: Carbonatation moyenne, bière relativement dense Fin de bouche: Alcool, malt, vanille, boisé. Assurément une superbe bière de dessert mais peut-être un peu trop de présence du bourbon/bois à mon goût.

Bottle shared with Ferris and others send by the one and only Tom10101, thanks man! Dark black pour, not quite as thick as your molasses but fits the bill, solid finger or two mocha head. Big aroma of bourbon, oak, dark fruits, some hotness from the booze, I like. Taste, yum, nice oak, chocolate, vanilla, bourbon sweetness, but not as big as the aroma, a nice decadent beer.

Ferris (3886) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
Bottle - Big hot bourbon nose. Jet black with a rich brown head. Lots of bourbon, sweetness and barrel with a nice long finish. For me tastes so much better than it smells. A great mellow flavor with a long finish.
