Draft at Bavarian Lodge. Got the last bit of this as the keg kicked Friday night. Black, of course, and with a big hit of whiskey in the nose. Taste is a little sweeter than I might expect, with some cherry in the background. Got a very small sample, so more I really cannot add. To this.

Wow, a supreme beer, the whiskey aroma is intense, but a glassful of complex flavours mellows the taste. A luxurious, world class beer.

UPDATED: MAY 31, 2014 Black of course with a fluffy mocha head. Amazing aroma of chocolate, whiskey, raspberries, vanilla, and wood. Taste is rich, sweet, woody, fruity, not too boozy, roasty, and mildly bitter. Lighter side of a full body, little carbonation, smooth.
