dantheman278 (1361) - SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle at home. Black pour, massive creamy tan head. Nose is massive bourbon explosion, BOURBON, spiced vanilla, BOURBON, liquorice, BOURBON, chocolate, BOURBON, hints of coconut also, BOUR... you get the idea. Palate is slightly softer - still big on the bourbon, but creamy chocolate also. Surprisingly dry ashy finish. Love it.

FaithHealer1 (358) - SCOTLAND - JAN 1, 2012
Bottle at Dans. Pours a thick black with a tantalising finger of brown head. Nose is wonderful - bourbon, milk chocolate, butter coffee, some coconut and a hint of brie-style cheese. Taste is different, very interesting. More bourbon than in the nose, coffee, roastiness, creamy chocolate. Sweet on the way in, ashy bitter on the way down. Dry finish. Fairly thick mouthfeel, alcohol warming. Lovely.

italianjohn (2520) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Black pour tan head light lacing ... aroma of bourbon and oak with some dark overripe fruits and roasted and chocolatey malts ..... taste is oaky with bourbon, vanilla and a roasted chocolatey flavor after some spices come through, overripe dark fruits as well but the bourbon and oak are the dominant flavors here ... finish is dry and oaky with a bitter spice and hop .... abv is hidden well .... would be a nice one to age to see how the flavors turn out

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2011
Pours thick, black with reasonable light chocolate head. Immediate aroma of booze, bourbon, a hint of vanilla. Flavour is like very dark chocolate; dry, sour, finishing sweet with a slight alcohol burn and elements of bourbon. Finish is enduring, dry, slightly herbal, and chocolate. Mouthfeel is slightly oily, though the herbs and flavour leave the experience predominantly dry. Not what expected, but rather tasty.

jgb9348 (5120) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 24, 2011
Deep dark brown coloured body with a thick deep rich brown head. Aroma of bourbon, light hops, vanilla, brown sugar and some deep roasted malt with coffee. Medium-bodied; Assertive roasty and nutty flavour with bourbon, oak and vanilla very strongly showing. Aftertaste shows a bit of spice, some nutmeg and a touch of vanilla with the roasted malt and alcohol strong. Overall, an okay beer - not great, and not worth it’s very high price...but decent to try. I sampled this 37,5 cL ’split’ bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 27-November-2011 for US$14.55 sampled at home in Manassas, Virginia on 24-December-2011 (Christmas Eve).
