Thanks to batkins for this brew. Pour black, red around the edges, with a tan head. Bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and brandy dominate. Heavy on the palate with a smoked finish. Rather nice woody finish with a sweet buttery bourbon flavor that pairs nicely against the burnt chocolate and subtle smoked finish.

375ml corked bottled courtesy of WeeHeavySD and shared with illini08. pours a very porter-ish looking dark brown with a short-lived head and very little lacing. aroma is strong bourbon with some other barrel notes of vanilla and oak. flavor is all about the bourbon, but had wonderful background flavors of chocolate, earthy dark fruits and a hint of smoke. while I’m not a huge fan of a lot of carbonation, this was almost flat. if there had been just a bit more carbonation, I would have easily scored it two to three tenths higher. strong ale and bourbon lovers should be seeking this one out while it is available!

this was a thick son of a bitch. strong oak and bourbon flavors, carmel and mocha with some darker fruit and apricot with a lot of vanilla and cherry menthol flavors. nice butterscotch and creamy mouthfeel.

Pours a deep black color with a brown head. Aroma is malty, bourbon, caramel, molasses, and some alcohol. Flavor is malt, bourbon, roasted malts, molasses, sweet caramel, and an alcohol finish.

Boutip (5198) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2008
Bottle courtesy of Bu11zeye: Poured a pitch-black color ale with a small foamy head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma of bourbon and oak with some notes of roasted malt. Taste is also dominated by some nice notes of bourbon with some light oak with some lightly sweet roasted malt notes. Texture is somewhat oily with average carbonation and full body. Alcohol is definitely not too apparent and bourbon is well balanced. Very good over all but I have to admit I was expecting more character from this beer, this is easily drinkable and I would have never guessed the 12% of ABV.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - JUL 8, 2008
Thanks to pepsican for giving me a chance to try this. Poured black, with a little bit of light coming through. No head. Smell was big bourbon, licorice and dark fruit. Taste was fig, dark fruits, raisins, bourbon, with a nice full finish that lasted on the tongue. Wish I had a bottle of old viscocity to compare it with.

Capa (2316) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Deep brown with a ring of head around the glass. Strong aroma of molasses, sweet malts, and dark fruits. Malty, molasses, deep fruits, chocolate, and milk in the flavor. Thick, sticky, dry, and smooth body. A very fine brew. Best a little warm, I thought.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2008
FoBAB 2008, Chicago: This poured a thick dark brown with a skinny tan head. The first scent to hit the nose is Bourbon followed by dark chocolate, dark dried fruit, roasted malt, dark caramel, cold coffee, and charred wood. Oily mouthfeel. Amazingly drinkable, everything from the nose blending together smoothly. Where’s the alcohol?

Bottle. Black beer with reddish highlights and a tan head. Bourbon and caramel malt aroma. Bourbon and toffee flavor with malt and vanilla. Fuller bodied. Bourbon and toffee lingers with a light roastiness.
