(375ml corked and caged bottle thanks to mar) Pours black with dark tan head. Nose is alcoholic, cumin, toasted spices. Taste is unsweetened chocolate, but one dimensional for me. Well carbonated and a great coffee linger which is the best part of this beer. Glad to have had this one.

Smells and looks like a SA triple bock bit is much better in terms of flavor and the smoothness. Lots of soy and chocolate and bourbon. 08 bottle so it actually had some carbonation instead of being flat.

drjay44 (2866) - Salida, Colorado, USA - SEP 26, 2009
Draft at 2009GABF. Pours a thin short lived head over a dark, brown/black (SR 38) clear body.....nose is loaded with, coffee, chocolate, coconut....taste is similar, with loads of coffee, chocolate, coconut, finishing with a medium hop bitterness....mouth feel is thick and rich, carbonation adds to the creaminess. An excellent example of what can be done with balanced big forces.

FoBAB tasting. Pours a translucent dark brown with a lacy, light tan head. Plenty of bourbon barrel plus some caramel in the nose. Medium body and light carbonation. Oaky vanilla in the taste, along with roasted nuts and cookie dough. Dry, oaky finish.

Bottle - Pour is deep black with a small tan head and little carbonation. The nose is mainly bourbon whiskey with some oak, vanilla, and fudge. The taste is big, boozey, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla. iíve had this on tap at the brewery and enjoyed even better with a little carbonation
