4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours rich coffee brown with a fairly thick dark tan head. Smoky malt aroma has strong overtone of high-quality coffee plus cocoa, earthy, bourbon and woody hints. Flavor is a symphony of roast malt, quality coffee, bourbon, chocolate, woody, earthy and molasses tones. Texture is firm and viscous, though fizz is none too strong; finish is smoky and earthy. Go like a bat out of hell to any bottle shop that has this available!

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Black with no head. Aroma of wood, Hershey’s chocolate, maybe some anise, but mostly smells like barrel aged hersheys. Taste starts smooth but gets a little oaky, with lots of chocolaty sweetness and delicious black roast coffee. Smooth and sweet, slightly boozy and a firm oak tone throughout.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draught @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012.
Pours a pitch black colour with a white foamy head which collapses quickly. The aroma is very intense; roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon and some sweet dried fruits. Flavour is even more intense; at first roasted malts, dark chocolate and sweet dried fruits, but after a while vanilla and bourbon take over. Mellow oaky notes in the finish, which create a dry and smooth finish. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Awesome beer and clearly one of the best beers I’ve ever tasted. Just wow.
