Huge thanks to hopsleeroy for sharing a bottle of this! Pours a dark black color with very little head. Smell is rich bourbon, chocolate, coconut, and vanilla. Awesome nose. Taste is chocolate, coconut, a touch of vanilla and oakiness too. Medium to slightly full bodied and somewhat soft carbonation. Really fucking fantastic overall. Reminded me a bit of BA Speedway, but I liked this better.

Bottle shared with Gabe @ Monks. Poured like oil with black color with small tan head. Aroma of sugar, vanilla, and alcohol. Taste was very well balanced and sweet. Not overdone with the bourbon and very smooth and easy to sip. Just wish I had more...

Bottle @ Monk’s: Poured a dark oil brown/black. The aroma was bourbon. The flavor was dark fruit, oak, bourbon, vanilla and dark chocolate. Overall, this is one of the best beers I’ve ever had. Very smooth, perfectly balanced and lots of flavor.

Sampled at the Bockyhorsey tasting, courtesy of rustychiles. Pours a deep black with some reddish highlights and a small brown head. Aroma of bourbon, wood, roasted malt and dark chocolate. Similar flavor, with some vanilla and a big bourbon kick. The bourbon and alcohol really come through in this baby! Very nice.

DSG (8627) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 29, 2009
(11/15/08) Bottle at Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia. Opaque black-colored beer with a small bubbly brown head. Powerful aroma of dark chocolate, wood, bourbon, some espresso notes, lots of roasted malt and a bit of fruitiness. Sweet malty flavor with bourbon, chocolate (some chocolate cake), licorice, some raisins and quite a bit of alcohol. Full-bodied.

Bottle (monks) Black in color, good head. Aroma of sugar, alcohol vanilla and raisons. Taste is a sweet but well a balanced beer. Lots of raisons. Not one of those overdone bourbon aged beers. Just a touch of the boubon comes through with a little vanilla as well. I would of never guessed it to be 12 percent... really smooth and easy to drink. Great beer
