kidmartinek (4585) - austin, Texas, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Deep black. Bubbly tan head. Lots of oaky rife malt aroma. Lots of chocolately flavor. Dry with a chalky texture. Finish is a good stiff bitter.

Patersoi (152) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 2, 2016
Coffee chocolate and burnt wood aroma. Pours well black with coffee coloured clingy dense head. Upfront charcoal bitterness and dark chocolate followed by espresso. Medium soft mouth feel. Bitterness in the finish probably from the whisky barrels and a bit of sweetness. Complex and surprising

caesar (6486) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 5, 2016
Bottle @ Beerbecue at joes, small sample. Dark color, medium frothy head. Aroma of roast, chocolate, slight whisky but not much vanilla. Soft sweetness from chocolate, bit bourbon, some coffee and roasty bitterness. Ok.

Benzai (12811) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle shared @ Beerbecue by Joes. Opaque pitch black color, average to medium sized light brown head. Aroma is malts and something weird. Is that the whiskey? Flavor has the same weird hint: I get some tart with the malts, light roast and some tart-bitter. No, I donít like it. Thin texture as well imo. Meh.

DutchDrebus (5536) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 4, 2016
Bottle @ beerbecue. Black colou with a medium sized light brown head. Smells toffee, roasty. Tastes roasty, vanilla, coffee, wood. Full body, slightly silky, soft carbo.

Garlic_of_Doom (623) - SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2015
On tap at Taphouse CPH. Black with a dense espresso coloured head that rests down to a thin film. Aroma has coca cola, lots of sweetness going on, bourbon notes and chocolate pudding. Taste has dark chocolate, loads of bitterness, a bit hot alcohol, roasted, faint bourbon, slight sweetness. Medium body, high carbonation, dry mouth feel.
Too much bitterness and carbonation in combination with being quite thin marks this down a few notches.

UDBeernut (2589) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Pours the part with an activly wild khaki head. Oak and chocolate nose. Taste has light chocolate, very faint bourbony smoke. Pretty underwhelming on many levels. Medium body.

kaser (5506) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Having the 2014 batch. Black pour from 22oz bottle at home. Smokey Carmel and sweet taste. Not getting much whiskey. Rather underwhelming after thinking I was holding a gem for a year.

Bule (1780) - California, USA - MAY 1, 2015
22oz bottle pours a dark brown color with a lot of frothy head. Intense harsh whiskey flavor that overpowers everything. It smooths with some time to breath.

slowrunner77 (9661) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 29, 2014
What the hell?! Just like with Pinchy Jeek, it looks like Iím the first to buy a messed up bottle. This hot mess did not resemble an imperial stout (and I really like the base beer) or a halfway decent whiskey BA beer. Aroma and flavor are nearly offensively astringent. Tastes and smells infected...more like a wine BA beer gone bad than a bourbon or whiskey BA stout. That distracts and ultimately completely covers up any roast or chocolate notes in this beer. So sad that I spent nearly $15 on this. It was crap. None of the 4 of us came close to finishing.

BOSSbrewer (2706) - Arkansas, USA - OCT 17, 2014
On tap at 28 Springs thanks to Casey! Pours jet black with a big frothy brown head. Aroma is bourbon oak and roasty chocolate. Flavor follows with also some earthy notes. Very bitter. Creamy mouthfeel. Really nice beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
