Black colour with a beige head. Aroma is a really nice and smooth bourbon. Brown sugar sweetness that isn’t overpowering.

Had this one on tap at the brewery. Medium brown. Bourbony nose. Quite sweet. Chocolate, and vanilla. Soft body. Basically adds vanilla to the regular basic Hellfighter, without a whole lot of nuance.

Bottle shared at gregwilsonstl’s tasting. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of coconut, licorice, cocoa, chocolate, vanilla and a touch of coffee. The taste was similar to the aroma with more dark chocolate, vanilla, dark sugars, caramel, nuts, hints of coffee and syrup. Very good stuff.

UPDATED: MAR 18, 2016 Dark, dark mahogany in color, cappuccino head, thin and whispy. Aroma of roasted cherry, heavy woodiness, vanilla, chocolate. Flavor was big, sweet, roasty, a tad smokey. Rolled into a nice chocolate covered cherry finish with hints of alcohol. Some lacto and chocolate frango rolls in nicely as it warms.

Sampled at gregwilsons tasting. Very dark brown. Just a little blotchy foam. This smells good. The whiskey is gentle in the aroma. I like that. Big malts. The flavor is the same. Good! Huge malts. Wood is not that big but adds some nice touches. A little vanilla. Delicious.

Great beer - This is comparable to a bourbon county, but is not as hot. It has a little more of the vanilla profile which I like. The vanilla version of this is absolutely phenomonal. SP?
Anyway, this is a beer that is worth the price. Anything under $15 for a bottle is worth it.
If you like bourbon aged beers, this is a good one.
