Draft. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, and coffee. The flavor is sweet with notes of chocolate, cocoa beans, roasted malt, and coffee, as well as hints of vanilla, leading to a bitter finish.

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.

Served in a Lost Abbey teku glass. Nose is really heavy coffee with nice chocolate in the background. Roasted cocoa and smooth coffee. Creamy and full body. Fairly smooth. All in all, tastes really nice but the base beer isn’t present at all. Just a lot of coffee and chocolate. Still, quite enjoyable.

Bottled. Dark, rich pour with a nice tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, coffee, lots of chocolate and oak notes. Some booze elements, very apparent oak and wood notes. Flavor is chocolate focused, with bourbon waiting in the wings. Some bitter wood and coffee notes are present, as well as a warming booziness. Slick, oily bodied with lower than average carbonation. Finishes chocolatey and boozy.

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.

Track 10. Pours near black with an espresso head. Aroma is loads of chili-like notes that come from the coffee. Taste is semi-sweet with a little roast. Dry finish. Good stuff.

Bottle to taster at FoBAB. Looks good; a dull, dark brownish black with beige lacing. Smells of dark malt and the barrel treatment with some pepper spiciness. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not sure where the pepper notes came from, but they were definitely there to me.
