ajnepple (3059) - Conifer, Colorado, USA - JAN 30, 2014
On tap at FreshCraft. Black appearance with a dissipating brown head, minimal lacing. Aroma of whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, sweet malts, oak, toffee/caramel and alcohol. Heavily sweet with minimal bitterness. Medium body with a slick, creamy feel and soft carbonation. Pretty good, but I prefer it unaged.

Thanks to errl for sharing this bottle. Pours a very dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of wood, mint and roasted malt. The flavor is a bit different. I get some strong rye and chocolate notes as well a some dark fruit, roasted malt and medium oak. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

onceblind (5206) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Dark black with a thin khaki head. Aroma was super dark and sticky with heavy notes of brown sugar, roasted dark chocolate syrup, and a little molasses. Flavor was large and delicious and thick. Lots of dark chocolate cake tones, brown sugar sweetness, a warming boozy tone like rum or bourbon, a little tone of roasted coffee, black licorice/molasses, on a sticky sweet finish that was warm and enticing with a hint of vanilla.
