This oil like beer has a very deep taste: mixing hop chocolate, caramel. If you can taste it, don’t hesitate.

dalfaro86 (306) - Mexico City, MEXICO - DEC 11, 2011
Thi is the best beer available in México, in very smal quantities of course and with a price of 20 dolars, but i think it´s worthy; puors black with a small brown head with good retention, aroma has notes of roasted malts, chocolate, coffe, vanilla, wood, and some hops; body is robust, and the flavor has te same notes as the aroma, but the hop and wood notes intensify

hawthorne00 (2724) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2011
Bottle, 14C. Black with a brown head that fades to a coat but laces well. Aroma of coffee, bourbon, dark fudge, vanilla, grass, alcohol. Very syrupy. Taste is sweet with chocolate fudge before astringent coffee, peppery bitterness. Some heat from the alcohol. More coffee than roasted/ burnt flavours, but they’re there. A little smoke and salt. The bitterness is nicely-judged and makes it very drinkable, but the alcohol sticks out a little too much for me. Very good.

suprchunk (2524) - 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 (3406) - 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

arminjewell (8461) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 24, 2011
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 (2938) - 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.
