Bottle, thanks to burspak! Enjoyed as rating #3100. Pours inky black with a small creamy dark brown head that slowly dissipates leaving nice residual and good lacing. Aroma is chocalatey vanilla bourbon. Flavor follows, light plus sweet with bracing bitterness, roasty, chocolatey, lots of bourbon burn, notes of vanilla and a bit of coffee, slight burned notes as well. Full, creamy mouthfeel, lots of lingering bitterness. Fairly hot. Very nice beer.

AshtonMcCobb (2500) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 30, 2014
Bottled and beer dudes tasting at Appellation Wines Comely Bank thanks to BenH again. Appearance - oily, opaque and black. It looks like crude oil. Nose - vanilla, tar and wood tannins. Taste - wood spice, burnt wood and a long liquorice note. Palate - full bodied with a big boozy texture which lasts all the way through to the finish and then some. It somehow manages still to have balance despite this richness. Overall - a lovely, rich, late evening beer!
