Even better than I expected. A perfect bourbon, cognac, cherry imperial stout. Perfect level of carbonation that keeps it from tasting too sweet. Best to drink it in small sips that you let play on your tongue. Great beer.

The barrel qualities are somewhat muted but the malt qualities are just over the top. This beer is so rich, luxuriant & smooth. Perfectly balanced.

Bottle shared by Brian...thanks buddy. Black pour with almost no head. Aroma is mostly the brandy barrel. Taste is a little boozy but nice finish. Really good stuff.

Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. Black pour, as almost everything at ZEBF. Deliciously rich aroma of vanilla bourbon, chocolate and coffee. Taste is thick and full, with bourbon vanilla, some boozy grape, coffee, cacao and oak. Fantastic.

Small bottle like a wine bottle split. Big caramel and sweet chocolate aroma. Taste very rich molasses and some chocolate. Mostly caramel and molasses. Flavor slightly sweet and complex. Finishes very malty with probes and some mellow coffee.

Black brew with a tiny brown ring. Slightly burn caramel, roasted hint, alcohol heat, light coffee, vanilla and bourbon. Sweet with some bitterness flash. Full body with a soft carbonation, alcohol heat, thick with a long, strong caramel finish. It is a heavy brew.

Bottle thanks to chebyshev, shared with Luk. Deep mahogany brown pour with thin straw foam. Decadent chocolate booze winey aroma, light bourbon, vanilla, figs, brown sugar, molasses and light anise notes. Taste is rich, sweet, very tasty, great intensity of flavor. Palate is full bodied and chewy with just enough carbonation to make it drinkable. Great sipper.
