660 ml bottle - shared with kraddel and dennoma, courtesy of spdyfire80something - Thanks Bryan C. Turner!. Pours dark brown to black with a nice deep purple hue. Steady head, creamy foam. Incredible lacing.. Intense liquorice aroma, slight molasse, but lots of chocolate and cacao. Nice stout! Alcohol and bourbon hidden fairly well.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the July 2014 3R6P gathering. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a small foamy dark brown head that faded and left no lacing. The aroma was coconut, slick oily malts, anise, bourbon, brown sugar and marzipan. The flavor was port wine, bourbon, coconut, anise, chocolate syrup, vague fruity hops, bread dough and marzipan. Very long finish. Very full, thick and smooth body. Outstanding!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle pour. Black black black body, espresso colored skiff of foam. Aroma is sorghum molasses, soy, prune, licorice, bourbon, ginger cookies. Taste is bourbon, molasses, raisin, crack seed plum, ginger, big vanilla and bitter black malt ending. Palate is thick and chewy, subdued carbonation. Six months in the cellar have done good things for this beer. I wish I had another to leave for a year. Molasses still dominates, but soy is more subdued, fruity flavors coming out.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
From trade with jbuddle, sampled from the 0.65l bottle @ Top Hops (BA) Bottle Share. Oh, it’s REALLY deep dark and near jet black in the glass this one! It has a nice medium sized deep dark brown head on top. A lovely nose with lots of chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and a strong warming sweetness. Superb. A bit dry on the flavor initially, as I expected lots of sweetness. I get traces if both cardboard (in a strange good way), lots of chocolate, deep vanilla and lots and lots of wood! Dry cocoa and salty licorice lingering in the finish. It’s soft and prickling on the bubbles and thick, viscous and chewy in the mouth. An amazing beer. 15.06.2013

Bottle. The pour is black with a beauty of a thin lacing head. The aroma is bourbon and molasses. The taste is light on the bourbon, and big on the toffee. Big and thick, nice drinking big stout.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz bottle. Thanks Tim! The pour is jet black with a medium khaki head, small, and fades to a ring of stagnant color. The aroma is a little bourbony dominance to the nose, but the licorice and smooth molasses work incredibly well with a light roast. The flavor is much better. There is a light heat, but the licorice is beautiful and the molasses works well with a light vanilla presence on the back end. The mouth feel is definitely creamy with a great carbonation and a lingering roasty beautiful aftertaste
