4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 I don?t get much aroma but the flavor is huge. Chocolate, cherries and bourbon. It?s like dessert in a glass. Becomes a little bitter as it warms. I preferred it on the cool side. I?ve never had anything like it. Outstanding!

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Aroma brings out smoky whiskey barrels, some roast and alcohol. Flavour is complex as hell, with smoky whiskey barrels, some roast and more smoky whiskey. This is so well done. Perfect amount of heat, smoke and whiskey. Phenomenal.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from binny’s. Very thick, motor oil consistency. Dark brown, actually black with essentially no head. The aroma is straight whisky with some oak and sugar. First sip is strong, not an alcohol heat, more of the oaky liquor flavor of a bourbon. If you like bourbon, you’ll love this. I like bourbon... But I could use a little more spice or chocolate or something. As is heating up in my hand, the baker’s chocolate intensifies. Which kicks this up to worth the cost (at least).

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pitch black oily and a very dark color espresso crema head. Sweet aroma like the others I’ve had here. Herbal, whiskey but overall a very light aroma. A lot of booze in this one. Vanilla, with candy corn, caramel and cocoa. Coats the tongue. Leaves a lasting bitterness with the chocolate. Despite the intensity, there’s enough creaminess to make this a very good beer. Needs to age I think. Very intense.
