MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - MAR 18, 2010
Sampled at Feb 2010 Indy tasting - Aroma is deep dark malts, vanilla and dark chocolate. The flavor is crazy full of of chocolate malts and vanilla. Palate is smooth and creamy. Wow a fantastically tasty beer. I have to admit, by this point in the tasting, I was feeling it. But this beer still blew me away. I want more!

Black colour, no head. Aroma of bourbon , oak, vanilla, molasses, cocoa, coconut, rasins. Taste is slightly sweet, light bitter. Medium body, oily texture, flat carbonation. Quite bourbon-y

375 ml bottle poured into a snifter. Black with a finger of brown head, slight brownish hue on the edges. Aromas of bourbon, chocolate, oak, a bit of licorice. Tastes of bourbon, dark fruit, chocolate, oak, light caramel/syrup. Full body with a dry and slightly warm finish. Oily, creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Nice stuff.

Bottle shared thanks to Tim and Rachel at Proof happy hour! Pours a motor oil black with little to no head or lacing. Aroma is big on the sweet bourbon barrel goodness, vanilla, oak, chocolate. Taste follows, smooth and rich, thick and chewy. Great barrel qualities, very nice.

beerbaaron (1222) - Arizona, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Black with rich creamy light brown head. Such a luscious aroma. Rich smooth dark malty. Caramel, toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, dark chocolate, smooth bourbon barrel. Thick, full, rich body. Warms the body. Soft. Plenty of booze but doesn’t get in the way. Moderate bittersweet. Not overly sweet, bitter, or roasty. Great balance. Lots of great bourbon.

aenima (254) - Askim, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2014
Aroma of wood, vanilla and some chocolate. The taste is similar. Very low carbonation. A little astringent in the finish. A little to woody.

MarinEvelyn (545) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Ohh, super sweet like candy, decadent. Super smooth, rich, creamy, like an expresso ( the roastiness) yum!

Ataraxia (366) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Black pour, moderately frothy brown head. Fudge, caramel, bourbon, sweetened coffee, light vanilla. Bittersweet with a longer, black coffee finish. Smooth, gentle carb, but a bit thinner than expected. Some booziness there but well masked.
