Pours with a mahogany body supporting a dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up aged dark roasted malts, black licorice, earthy milk chocolate and mild sweet bourbon like booze notes. The taste has smooth yummy dark roasted malts, some spicy black licorice and smooth bourbon notes heading to midway and into the finish. It gets a bit more bourbon like into the finish as the other notes recede away. Dandy stuff.

Mora2000 (5855) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 30, 2013
Dark brown to black with a few tan bubbles. The aroma is sweet boozy bourbon with some chocolate and dark fruit. The flavor is bourbon, oak, maple and vanilla. There is also some chocolate but the maple is what really stands out. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation. Excellent.

Wanted to note for the record the dark fruit notes, while very enjoyable, are very reminiscent of the dark fruit notes you get in barrel-aged beers that are showing signs of infection. I have no idea if this beer is headed that way but it would certainly not be the first barrel-aged beer to go down that path. I hope I am wrong.

brokensail (11532) - Orange County, California, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Black pour with a khaki head. Roasted malt, char, chocolate, and vanilla aromas. Some oak, molasses, coffee, and some caramel. Maybe some licorice. The flavor is roasty and quite sweet. Burnt sugar, chocolate, and vanilla. Molasses, dark fruits, coffee, and licorice. Mild bourbon, charred oak, and a bit of astringency on the finish.

dfinney23 (1836) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours like nearly flat cola. Smells like bourbon. Tastes like a bourbon and coke and the palate makes it seem higher in alcohol than it actually is. I like it but it would need to be less bourbon dominated to make my barrel-aged top 5.
