bvc (1208) - Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2013
Draft at Speakeasy. Rich deep viscous black pour with nice darker tan head that falls to a thin layer pretty quickly. Nose of deep roast, touch of chocolate and dried raisins soaked in vanilla infused bourbon. Good thicker mouth feel, carbonation is a bit lively for the style. Boozey dark fruit, licorice, charred malt. Finishes too ashy and with harsh vodka booze for me. Taste way hotter than 9.5%.

Ibrew2or3 (7777) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2016
32oz growler pours with a deep dark mahogany colored body that supports a nice dark tan head of foam. The aroma offers up chocolate, smooth bourbon, dark roasted to burnt malts, a nutty sensation and then booze at the end of the draw. The taste delivers a similar plate of flavors. I get smooth bourbon and booze to go along with chocolate, dark roasted malts and burnt malts. On the way to the finish it just stays boozy and bourbon like as the beer notes fade away.

hopdog (10491) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 31, 2015
22oz, grey waxed bottle. Poured a black color with a smaller sized off white head. Some wood, chocolate, roast, and a lighter vanilla. Nothing really standing out or setting this one apart.

dmac (5087) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Bomber from Joe Canals. Poured a midnight black velvety body with a soapy deep mocha head. Aroma of chocolate pudding skin, bourbon, dark toast, vanilla, graham cracker. Flavor is simialr with a bit more chocolate and some wood notes. Dry body, fuller, hot and strong carbonation.

Bacterial (2551) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Dark pour, black. Slight off white head. Malty nose. Big boozy taste, somewhat harsh. Malty and slightly bitter finish. Hard to find the bourbon in there for me.

PartyFowle (791) - - MAY 12, 2015
Draft. Thick, syrupy and black. No light penetrating. One finger of dense, sticky sandy head webs the glass. A lot of acetaldehyde in the nose. Sweet whiskey, oak and vanilla are there as well, with a touch of roast beneath it all. Sweet flavor. Green apple and green raisin up front, followed by vinous oak, vanilla, toasted coconut. The swallow steps up the darker malts, lending hints of roast along with lots of caramel. Lingering acrid burnt bitterness on the sides of the tongue. Smooth, soft medium body. Carbonation tickles the tongue, a bit of alcohol adds heat like peppers. A good enough brew with nice whiskey flavor. Get rid of the green apple and I wonít have the boys break your legs.

Big fan of Syndicate BBA. Scarface is part of their infamous series. Canít find much info on what barrels used. Speakeasy is an interesting brand wish they let the brewers talk more about their beers. The Black Hand is wonderful especially with TCHO ingredients added.
