Ratman197 (10684) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 25, 2010
375 ml corked and caged bottle poured a translucent dark brown nearly black with a small lingering brown head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, vanilla, bitter chocolate and roasted malt. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry warming finish. Flavors of roasted malt, charcoal, coffee, bourbon, oak and bitter chocolate with a smooth dry warming lingering roasty chocolate finish.

Aroma is sweet chocolaty and vinous. Pours black with a caramel creamy head. Flavour is toffee, chocolate, coffee and vinious- burns a bit. Nice soft mouthfeel, long aftertaste of chocolate, coffee and then and the alcohol.

Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Completely black with a smallish, creamy, cappucino beige head. Heavy aroma. Lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate, light coffee. Heavy bourbon notes, lots of sweet vanilla and a fairly heavy dose of vinousness. Low carbonation, great dry and fairly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very elegant and well-balanced. Fin roasted notes, dark chocolate, plums, oak, some tannins, sweet vanilla. The finish is light bitter with a fairly harsh alcohol note. The alcohol does sting a little, which detracts from an otherwise great drinking experience.

jkwood04 (4445) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 16, 2010
12.7oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with thick, tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, bourbon, etc. Awesome flavor that is so complex because of the roasted malts with chocolate and coffee notes, the alcohol, and the honey too. Thick texture. An incredible beer.

Ibrew2or3 (7312) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Big thanks to Blazer06 for these. Pours deep darkness with nice tall tan head. The aroma is chocolate, molasses, vanilla, a light bourbon note, oak and sludgy malty earthiness. OK, great start. The taste is similar with chocolate, molasses, smooth bourbon notes, oak, caramel candy and then a growing sense of spicy oak woodiness. Very nice indeed. It picks up burnt malt notes, dark roasted malts and coffee into the finish.

dmac (4501) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 12, 2010
375 ml cork and caged bottle. Poured a deep dark black body with an average sized dark beige bubly head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate, light bourbon notes, tobacco and tar. Medium bodied that is far drier then I was expecting and soft carbonation. Flavor is rather dull with some dark roasted malts, burnt toast and hints of bourbon. This is one weak ass offering for the price tag.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 8, 2010
Bottled. Pours out in an opaque black colour th a small bubbly tan coloured foam. Big aroma of roasted malts, black chocolate, pine, coconut, vanilla, black pepper and wood. Full-bodied with strong concentrated notes of wood, bourbon, vanilla, burnt malts coconut, pine and black chocolate. Long woody finish of bourbon, vanilla, coconuts, roasted almonds and black chocolate. Well-hidden alcohol. I’m not a huge fan of Bourbon but I really dig this monster.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2010
bottle thanks to Blazer06 at the Tally tasting, pours thick black, medium tan head. Strong bourbon nose with roasted malts and burnt sugar. Flavor is ultra roast, bitter black stuff. Cocoa and coffee with a mild barrel influence in the finish.

potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Bottled. Brown tan/red head lasting with black black body. Aroma is burnt bourbon and wood and huge chocolate, but that black hole leather musky smell, but still with a lot booze. Flavor follows suit. Great coco powders and bourbon booze mixed but easy easy swallowed.
