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.

Pours pitch black color with medium-sized beige head. Aroma of liquorice, sweetish caramel notes, dark roasted malts, dark chocolate, vanilla and bourbon. Flavor of sweet caramel, dark toasted malts, toffee notes, lots of vanilla, bourbon, mild coffee and some hints of syrup. Very complex brew but also very balanced brew with lots of layers.
