On tap at Lost Abbey. Pours a dark chestnut brown/black with brown head. Chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, roasted malt, smoke, and hints of dark fruit. Thick mouth feel. Not surprisingly, very nicely done.

Bottle from ygtbsm94. Man what a beer. Holy shit. black pour wtih a small brown head. Aroma is so luscious...bourbon, chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla, oak and heaven. Flavor is full and bad ass. bourbon notes hit but do not overpower. Chocoolate, molasses, vanilla and oak follow. Damn this is just a near perfect beer.

Taster, on tap at Lost Abbey. Pours black with a mocha head. The aroma screams of barrel aged goodness, buttery vanilla, oak, bourbon, and roasty chocolate. Flavor is more of the same, and pretty sweet but not cloying. Itís just thick and buttery and rich and pretty much just how I like my big barrel aged beers. The only issue is that it doesnít seem to finish as strong as it starts, seems like the flavors kind of fall off. Better than the OLD Viscosity.

Like a mouthful of charred wood. Aroma of smoke and alcohol. Appearance is black as night with a tan head at pour which disappears quickly. Flavor is rich, smoky, and charred. Lots of wood, chocolate and coffee. Coating mouthfeel.

Taster at Lost Abbey. Super, pitch black pour, very thick with a chocolate head. Dark fruit aroma, slightly woody and it had alot going on. Flavor was much the same, bourbon, oak dark fruits, very well done and tasty.

Sample @ EBF í09. Pours almost jet black with barely any head. Aroma is overwhelmed by the bourbon but I also detected vanilla, roasted malt, and chocolate. Taste is chocolate up front dissolving into that vanilla oak characteristic you usually get with a bourbon-aged stout. Yet another fantastic offering from this great brewery.

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 @ Monkís: 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 Iíve ever had. Very smooth, perfectly balanced and lots of flavor.
