Pours dark licorice into a snifter. Mocha head leaves spotted tears as it recedes to coat surface. Vanilla, chocolate and bourbon aromas. Thick with dark licorice and soy upfront turning to dark pit fruit before the warming, smoky port finish.

beerbaaron (1198) - 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 (250) - 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.

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.

Johnsense (778) - - AUG 9, 2014
Thick black pour, tiny head, lower carb. Big bourbon and anise aroma. Taste of bourbon, dark chocolate, anise, vanilla. Full body. Slick mouthfeel.

swesson (209) - 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

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.
