optimator13 (31) - Louisiana, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Alcohol roasted malts and dark fruits. Some licorice. Black, some brown edges. Surprisingly night tan head. Alcohol taste, faint chocolate and roasted notes. Not very dynamic. Carbonation is stingy. Too crisp.

9/24/11. Growler shared in line waiting to get into BA Hunahpu’s. Rich black pour with brown edges and a small tan head that fades fast. Rich aroma of ash, molasses, alcohol, and fruity notes as well. Very rich flavor of ash, char, coffee, and rich fruitiness with a touch of alcohol. Nice!

Pours dark black with some light and one finger of tan head. Intensely rich nose, lots of dark fruit and chocolate, very portish. Some alcohol comes through. Rich and fruity with lots of dextrin, chocolate, caramel, and alcohol. Full viscous palate and alcoholic warmth.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Bottle, shared by emacgee. Thanks dude. Huge, over the top richness. Booze is there and apparent for the full experience, but there are some well integrated chocolate, vanilla and roast components that hold their own. Good, for a novelty beer, but not something I’d want to drink regularly.
