suprchunk (2510) - Crestview, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2011
Black colored pour. Big dark tan head. Little lacing left behind as the head slowly falls to a thin layer of foam. Huge peppery, bourbon aroma. Malty, chocolately, but mostly boozy. Big chocolate and pepper mixed with a slight bit of bourbon in the taste. Smooth and creamy with just a hint of heat. Very good.

maneliquor (3393) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 13, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 14, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Fantastic pitch black pour with a small and dark, sinister looking tan head. Aroma is big and intense. Burnt wood, molasses, dark as the night chocolate. Bourbon and vanilla tones play a big role in the aroma but it seems to have an overriding green pepper note that muddles it all up. A little bit of salt comes through and it is a tad sharp. Taste is smoother with long, lingering dark chocolate, smoked wood, vanilla, bourbon and molasses. A very big beer. A little sharp on the palate and might need a little time to improve a little. In saying that, I enjoyed every minute of this, although not quite as good as the original it is still a world class brew

Rate #2000, big thanks to Rasmus for this bottle! Pour into snifter is dark and thick oily black with dark tan, brown head, one of the darkest I’ve seen to date. Head is a bit thin and dissipates quickly but is expected with a 12% brew, alcohol legs stick around pretty well. Aroma has notes of big toffee, molasses, some anise, hints of fig, lots of dark chocolate, coffee notes as well. Taste is big notes of vanilla, dark fruit, toffee, lots of bourbon, but not overly boozy somehow, with notes of dark chocolate, toffee, some burnt toast and roasted malt, hints of smoke fill in the cracks but really do well to balance, finishes big, bitter, dry. So many layers, and tastes just great. Fantastic brew.

BOLTZ7555 (2935) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 22, 2011
Dark onyx brew that didn’t allow light to escape even at it’s outer edges. Extremely small, honey-colored ring was all that was produced from a vigorous pour. Aroma of charred marshmallows, smokey campfire, burnt caramel, unsweetened chocolate, and mocha. Flavor is deep and dark chocolate and molasses. Thick and gooey mouthfeel...sticky chewy caramel on the palate. ABV is very well hidden but, unfortunately, so is the bourbon. Didn’t really get a sense of it in the nose or flavor. Definitely a solid beer but far from world-class.

LoFi (1637) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 16, 2011
Bottle. Pitch black, very dark brown head with a creamy surface. Taste: lots of bourbon, salty licorice, peat/smoke. Aroma: chocolate mousse, licorice, peat, salami, bourbon, toffee, vanilla, creamy. Large and complex. Full, sticky mouthfeel, liqueur-ish. Top notch!

blomster (263) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 14, 2011
Pitch lack pour with an insane dark brown, dense, finger-high head. Aroma of oak, chocolate, bourbon, molasses, a bit of licourice in the background. Chocolate, vanilla, booze, oak, tobacco in the taste. Roasted, long finish, soft carbonation, full bodied. It just gets better as it warms up. I absolutely love the barrel treatment of this beer.

25cl bottle thanks to Bardwashrind on BA. Black and fairly thick with some small brown bubbles. Great aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, sugar, bourbon, and molasses. Sweet intense mocha flavor - lots of sweet dark chocolate - with a strong syrupy molasses note. Thick and full and slick on the mouthfeel with low carbonation. Really good flavor, if a bit hard to drink a lot of.

jonno (2345) - JAPAN - OCT 6, 2011
Huge beer. Almost a completely different beer from the base now. Big nose of stewed prunes, raisins and other dark fruits, chocolate and little roast and lots of port. Lovely golden tan head - it almost sparkles. Sludgy thick body - huge presence here. Bourbon is well balanced here. not over the top like some BA beers - just really well integrated. Not as much flavour or complexity as one would hope after all the great lead up work. Still tasty though. Full of chocolate initially, whith the balanced burbon with a light roast finish. Will have to get a few more of these!
