Weezel (234) - Florida, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Huge bourbon, vanilla and chocolate aromas. Nice black pour with little head or foam. The taste is a bit more subdued with marshmallow and vanilla mixed with a sweet thick malt. Really good but a bit lacking in depth.

slowrunner77 (6761) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 14, 2014
he look is close to advertised...30 weight motor oil, with a touch of head. aroma is sweet bourbon, oak, chocolate, alcohol & coffee. mouthfeel is slick, although just a touch thinner than expected. the flavor is a mix of bourbon, oak, molasses, sweet malt, and some chocolate & coffee. Overall, it was very good, but not quite as complex as I was hoping for. Bourbon fans will love it...I liked it a lot, but at the price, even Bourbon County Stout @$5+ for a 12 oz bottle is a better deal. 7/11 - a couple rturn trips to this beer and i upped it a tenth. old vis is a better deal (more beer for less) but i do like this one more."

Bottle. Pours like used motor oil, thick, very little head, no bubbles. Huge Oak, wood, alcohol nose, dark overripe plumb. Strong warm alcohol taste, wood, and roast and brown sugar notes. Very smooth for such a strong beer.

In short: mighty dark ale.
Pours black with some tan head. Poor head retention, some lacing. Wood, sweet, liquor, caramel, nuts aromas. Medium to full bodied, soft carbonation, viscous texture. Taste is smooth, liquor, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, wood flavours. Really smooth, well balanced and enjoyable.
