tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2013
Pitch black pour with an almost non-existent light brown head. Nose is dominated by the vanilla, caramel and oak from the barrel, boozy notes, there’s some milk chocolate, and dark fruit. Amazing tasting beer, surprising amount of mocha, lots of vanilla and oak notes from the barrel, there’s some bitter chocolate and a bit of caramel. Well balanced, almost no carbonation from the aging though. Great desert beer.

Ohh, super sweet like candy, decadent. Super smooth, rich, creamy, like an expresso ( the roastiness) yum!

Ataraxia (361) - 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.

Thick black pour, tiny head, lower carb. Big bourbon and anise aroma. Taste of bourbon, dark chocolate, anise, vanilla. Full body. Slick mouthfeel.

swesson (206) - Highlands Ranch, Colorado, USA - AUG 9, 2014
From a bottle. Pours a dark chocolate brown making a light brown 1 finger head. Smells of chocolate and bourbon. Very boozy. Very syrupy. Lots of tiny bubbles. Tastes like a chocolate/vanilla cognac. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Renobob (616) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 9, 2014
Bue en bouteille. Sublime produit ! Couleur noir profond, pas d’effervescence. Explosion d’arômes en bouche, boisés, vanillés... Génial !

charule (1048) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle from the Beer Temple, kind of pricey. Poured thick black with decent dark tan head. Bourbon vanilla forward aroma which I like, oak booze choc vanilla. Light carb med bod. Alchy bourbon tinge with vanilla. Aromas better then taste.

freretoc (625) - Besançon, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2014
Bue en bouteille de 37.5, couleur noire pétrole, pas de mousse ni d’effervescence, nez complexe sur le côté bois de chêne et la vanille, en bouche c’est ultra puissant, ça commence avec le café, puis le café au lait et ensuite gros côté grillé très noir et une fin de bouche longue sur le rhum ambrée et le bourbon vanillé, Tuerie extrême !

tmoreau (2357) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 30, 2014
Shared 12.7 oz. bottle poured to snifters, showing a black/brown hue, with a frothy, brownish tan head that gradually diminished to a ring & film, and wavy cling to the lacing. The nose was bourbon at the ready, with some roastiness, blanketed by chocolate, and dark fruit as prune & raisin. Full bodied, with notes as the aroma’s, soft carbonation, some silkiness to the mouthfeel, and very warming alcohol.
