beernbourbon (1452) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle. Pour Is deep brown with a very large brown head. Aroma is smooth and creamy roasted malt with notes of cocoa, coffee, faint spice, toffee, and faint vanilla. Flavor is rosted malt with hints of coffee, faint holiday spice and a faint musty note. Not too much bourbon present. It’s like a good standard porter with a hint of spice and a hint of sweetness.

Bottle in AZ. Cloudy, deep brown appearance with a big dark brown head and some lacing. Slightly peaty whiskey, woody, roasty, chocolate malty, slightly burnt, light anise aroma. Rich dark chocolate, fairly fruity, plum, fig, oaky, a little burnt, toffee, a bit smoky, light whiskey flavor with more whiskey on the warming finish. Not bad.

maneliquor (3480) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Jet black pour with a medium, very dense khaki head. No lacing. Insane amount of herbal notes mingle on the nose. Bitter chocolate and light bourbon tones come and go with prominence to the green herbal tones. Dark chocolate is at the back in the taste throughout. The green and grassy herbal tones are all about but they mix well with the spicy bourbon notes. Comes together fairly well. A few rough edges but works. Very nice and unique

boFNjackson (4195) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Bottle at a recent tasting... Poured dark black with a brown head. Realy nice barrel characters on this one. Not overly roast too which allowed the sweetness and bourbon to shine. Hints of molasses, anise, dark malt sweetness and bourbon whiskey.
