Bottle @ Darkness Day eve, thanks to bnielsen13 for sharing. Pours a deep brown / black appearance with a thin brown head. Aroma has a bunch of dark chocolate, vanilla, coconut, and light wood. The flavor is a little gooey with a s’mores-like taste. A bit of booze but really clean and tasty. One of my favorite beers during Darkness eve.

>> Thank you Alex for this, one of many birthday gifts :D Pours clear deep sepia/black with practically no head. Some coaxing, swirling, agitating produces a film of cappuccino colored foam. Nose is rich vanilla and sweet bourbon, graham cracker, flashes of soy and Marmite, . Taste up front is dense in the mouth and very bitter moving to a fairly dry and sharply bitter finish. Slight soil/earth, spent coffee grounds, but not harsh. No metallic or astringency. No off flavors. Mostly the bitter component takes away from the barrel nuance. The structure of the beer is quite solid: dense, bitter, dry, heavy on bitter dark chocolate. But the marshmallow, vanilla, and bourbon don’t come through in a big enough way for me.

Thanks to Alex for sending my husband beers that I like. Literally smells like a bourbon barrel aged s’more. Yum. It’s a bit flat but that doesn’t detract much from the taste. Rich dark chocolate, dark fruits, bourbon notes, nice bitterness with some coffee grounds on the finish. Really like how balanced it is. Pretty boss I say.

Bottle at Shady Scotch Ales Night V. Black pour with gold-brown head, pretty. Aroma of vanilla, burnt sugar, marshmallow, light bourbon, boozy notes. Taste is sweet, several sugary flavors, toffee, burnt marshmallow, sweet vanilla notes, roasty finish, nice alcohol warmth. Palate is rich, full bodied but not cloying. Fine stout.

Procent (174) - POLAND - SEP 21, 2014
W aromacie nuty dębowe, od leżakowania w beczkach i wanilia, ale dość mało intensywne. Barwa ciemnobrązowa, nieprzejrzysta, piana beżowa, niewielka. W smaku intensywna kawowość, paloność, a w kontrze słodycz od wanilii. Wyczuwalny alkohol, goryczka zdecydowanie dominuje, wg mnie za mocno, przez co gubią się dodatki. Goryczkę wiec mogę ocenic jedynie na wysoką. Warka do 2016 roku.

Bottle @ BBB. Pours viscous reddish black with no head worth mentioning. Smell is sweet and malty with roasted malts, caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, sweet soy sauce, salty liquorice hard candy, sweetened coffee, chocolate, raisins, vanilla beans, bourbon and hay. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, charred wood, bitter chocolate, dark roast coffee, moist soil, burnt coconut, hay and hints of soot. Mouthfeel is slightly flat, round, fat, tiny viscous, tiny boozy and medium to full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, coffee, chocolate, charred wood, toasted coconut, soil and hay. Nice barrel treatment. Not completely flat but would have been top stuff with more carbonation.

Tap at CBC 2014. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Malty aroma with coffee notes. Starts heavy malty, strong, intense notes of coffee, quite roasty. Finish dry-malty, a bit bitter. Okay.
