4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big nose of chocolate, coffee, very slight bourbon and maybe vanilla and coconut. Not sure. Very complex. Spent ten minutes just smelling it; deep dark brown, big caramel coloured head and sticky lacing; sweet and not cloying, rounded so there are subtle hints of acid and salt, noticeably bitter but not hoppy; Rich and full bodied, well carbonated without being fizzy, sticky and a slightly creamy texture, short finish; Big impression.

This one poured a medium to dark brown with a beige head. Aroma was of coffee, Bourbon and roasted grain. Flavor was similar to regi capped stout, not a ton of Bourbon, but unfortunately it seems the coffee has fallen off as well.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Dark thick beer blocks out light entirely. The beer smells like caramelized sugar and cream. Taste of the chocolate then creamy then turns a little alcoholic coffee bitter at the end. Thick and syrupy delicious.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap available at the brewery only. This version was 12% + ABV and poured deep, dark coffee color with nice head and lasting lace. This is the port version of beer, big, thick Australian dessert-like dried-fruit leather layered atop coffee, cocoa, melted black licorice flavors. Try this as a nightcap with sticky toffee pudding.
