Deep oily black appearance. Aroma is nice almond sweet caramel and toffee with some bourbon. Taste is sweet and a bit chemical heavy with some booze and almonds.

Sample at EBF, Almond version. Deep deep brown almost black pour with thin brown-ish foam. Aroma of almond, almond butter, roasty almond, unfortunately something a bit solventy, turpentine, chemical, paint thinner aroma. Tastes like almonds, flavor is harsh and boozy, again solventy, light chocolate notes, very harsh. Body is med-full bodied, med carbonation, the almond thing is too much though, way too rich.

Beau corps huileux. Nez riche. Bouche comme un délice. Gros malts. Noix enrobés de chocolat. Cette bière est aux amandes mais il me semble qu’il y a d’autres noix que les amandes. Le bourbon est élégant. beau fond caramel et vanille. Pas étonnant. Densité moyenne. Texture douce ou veloutée. Finale amère : alcool, bois, noix, rôtie. Très bon. En plein dans mes cordes.

Draft at brewpub. Pours the usual dark brown to black color with a smaller beige film. The aroma has dark roasted malts, dark chocolate with a very nice nutty component that pushes this to a new level for me. I enjoy the black walnuts in the oil quite a bit and found this to be on the same level with the addition of bourbon and vanilla to the mix. The flavor has the nut flavors working very well with the base beer; roast, dark chocolate, pecans with some of the black walnut found in the oil, bourbon, vanilla and wood. Medium plus body with a smooth texture.

Draft sample. Poured a dark brown color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted chocolate, caramel, nut and bourbon alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet dark chocolate malt flavor with a heavy nutty bittersweet and small bourbon alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is an improved standout beer.

Small pour at the Jackie O’s 7th Anniversary Extravaganza. Black pour with a huge tan head. Malty and chocolatey aroma with bourbon and nuts. Malty and chocolatey flavor with nuts and a bit of bourbon before a semi-tart finish.

Poured on draft. It’s inky black with a thick head of tan foam. Surprising that it has any head at all. The aroma is nutty, chocolaty, bitter coffee, leather. Taste has a nice mellow nutty note that sits on top of the bourbon and chocolate. Really tasty stuff.
