Sampled from the tap at FOBAB 2012. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of roasted malts with coffee and bitter chocolate backed by a sweet bourbon note. Flavor is much more bourbon forward with sweet dark grains and bitter coffee.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured a darker brown color with a small brown head. Aroma was of mainly coffee and roasted malts. Not muh chcolate with light barrel. Flavor is very roasted and burnt coffee with light barrel to keep it form being too bitter, but the chocolate really isnt there much at all either.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate roasted coffee and milk chocolate with a hint of vanilla. Itís a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts with a quick dose of chocolate and caramel. The finish has moderate-heavy roasted coffee with some light vanilla. Itís medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, the coffee addition comes through more than the barrel aging.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sampled as a bottle of Track 10 at the brewery. Pours to a pitch black body with a tan head. There were aromas of deep black malt and licorice. Chocolate and oaky bourbon. The flavor is a sweet chocolate, light bourbon, easy drinking coffee, and a light licorice. Very much like a chocolate coffee cake. Rich and sweet. Very smooth beer even though it is a very high ABV.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Track 10 bottle at the brewery. Oily pitch black pour, small brown head. Lots of coffee in the aroma. Sweet chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, strong espresso beans, light roasted malt, bourbon, and hints of raisin. A very nice rich imperial stout. Nothing too "out of the box" by todayís standards, but still huge vanilla, fresh coffee, and rich chocolate flavors. Tasty.

On tap at the tasting room. Aroma of toffee, caramel, chocolate and sweet coffee. Pours black and thick with sediment floating on top. Taste is super sweet with heath bar and cappuccino dominating the senses and slight prunes. Fantastic beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. A black one, topped by a small, tan head. The aroma has lots of coffee, a touch of licorice, some dark chocolate and cocoa, and quite a lot of roasted malts. Itís lightly warming on the palate, sort of boozy so I guess the barrel has some influence, full-bodied, dryish and still sweet. Loads of dark chocolate and cocoa in the flavor, with coffee blending in between. Lasting finish where the coffee are more pronounced than in the aroma and initial flavor, but with the same lovely dark chocolate and coffee. Wow, this is one hell of a beer.

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. A damn black one with a small chocolaty head. It has a strong chocolate and roasted aroma, lots and lots of chocolate actually. Also extreme amounts of vanilla and some dark coffee. Oh yeah! It has that woody vanilla touch, heavy roasted flavors, tons of quite sweet chocolate. Itís full-bodied with a average carbonation level. Lingering sweet chocolate flavors. Oh my what a beer! Coffee and vanilla in the finish. Could nibb on this all day long! 11.05.2012
