Dark pour with reddish hints and a slight head. Licorice and dark fruits on the nose. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than expected. Flavor is vanilla, licorice, and figs with a sweet finish.

Lumpfest 2008- Black in color, nice sweet bourbon nose. And then BAM- way too burnt for me. Wow, just nothing but char with alcohol.

sloth (2401) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Pours still, literally, flat. Black color, maybe some brown edging. Nose is gentle, whisky, light roast and faint chocolate notes. Cant even rouse a head, bummer. Med/full body, lightly oily and slick. Some bitter chocolate notes, whisky, roast and alc. notes, faint caramel, mostly chocolate and roast. Finish is lightly sweet chocolatey notes with the whiskey notes. A serious let down. Many thanks to footbalm for the bottle though, Eric, you rock my friend!

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2008
375ml corked and caged bottle, courtesy of KAME, thanks Dillon! Pours a dark brown with only a splotch of large bubbles in the center that drift out around the rim, no lacing. Aroma is primarily bourbon and oak, with hints of vanilla and molasses that peek out. Flavor is bourbon forward, with some oak, charcoal and vanilla present. Its definitely a slow sipper, but enjoyable.

Lost Abbey Patron Saints club special purchase. Thanks guys! Pours dark, 1974 Ford Granada motor oil black. Yes. Small light brown head. Nose of alcohol (!) chocolate, malts, liquor (bourbon). Taste of caramel, chocolate, spices, sweetness, and definitely alcohol. Body is actually thinner than one would think looking at the beer. Nonetheless, a great beer and very unique. Iíve got 3 more to age-how about one for a birthday party in June 2008??

xmarcnolanx (925) - Kirkwood, Missouri, USA - JAN 3, 2008
Port smelling, no head, chocolate, slightly alcohol. Charred flavor. Tons of oak and bourbon, slightly dry finish. Chocolatey, goodness. Finishes smooth and slightly alcoholic. Good, but not amazing. 747416

Midnight black color with a rich tan head that retains very well and leaves good lacing. Large amounts of bourbon in the aroma, with some vanilla also joining it. Some nice chocolate-y roastiness is also in there, maybe a bit of charcoal too. Thick, chocolate-y, roasty, liquid crawls down my tongue with a very smooth bourbon flavor and finishes with a little bit of alcohol warmth. Body is extremely full bodied with medium carbonation levels. Just a splendid beer to drink, I wish this was more available. Iíve yet to be disappointed with this brewery; great stuff! Thanks for the sample, Tomme.

Huge whiskey flavor & aroma. OK but not my favorite style. Personally, Iíd call this an ole english ale and possibly a barley wine instead of an american strong ale.

Wow! Aroma of bourbon and malt and chocolate. The appearance is amazing, dark with a coffee colored foamy head. The taste, unbelievable. Strong coffee, chocolate malt mixed with bourbon for good measure. Truly a classic, up there with Old Rasputin X Anniv.
