3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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%.

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.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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 won’t have the boys break your legs.

Big fan of Syndicate BBA. Scarface is part of their infamous series. Can’t 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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very dark brown, with a decent tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, and oak. Taste is slightly sweet with notes of chocolate, coffee, and malts. Not a great BA imperial stout, with the bourdon very slightly there. Still a good brew, thumbs up.

Dark black with tan head... Aroma of caramel, vanilla, bourbon.... Flavor is fairly thinner than I expected, roasted malts, oak, dark chocolate and lots of smoke... Solid but a little disappointing

Dark brown color, light brown head. Very light barrel notes. VERY light. More roast and chocolate notes to speak of. Maybe an ashy hint here and there. No real vanilla or bourbon tho.
