Tap @ Tin Bucket... Poured jet black with a moderate forming light khaki head. Roast and whiskey oaked nose. Full bodied, mildly drying on the finish. Subtle, soft carbonation. Nice rye spice that’s smoothed out by some wheated tones. Alcohol heat with a nutty liqueur with some roast, oak, and dark chocolate, molasses, cookie dough and brownie batter mix towards the finish. Complex and pleasantly delicious.

PhillyCraft (3519) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 20, 2013
On tap at Teresas, pours black with large tiny bubbled cream head. Aromas and flavor are very roasty, boozey, sweet, and ashy. Lots of chocolate, molasses, charred barrel, and whiskey. Stick palate with medium to heavier body. Big warming feeling in the chest. Glad I only had a sample of this one. Way too hot.

Sathorael (152) - Oceanside, California, USA - AUG 19, 2013
Pours deep mahogany/black with small soapy tan bubbles. Aromas of bitter chocolate, bready malts, caramel, and bright oaky alcohol. Taste brings a much better presence of bourbon than the aromas but still subtle. Big chocolate, coffee, toffee and caramel present with mild oaky/nutty flavors and a gentle alcohol warming. Slick mouthfeel with a sweet finish and a bit of subtle alcohol.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2013 Just way too hot for me. I guess my preferences just don’t extend much past 11%, but for me the fusel alcohols (more or less, the hot/gasoline vapors, mouthfeel, and flavor) just overpowered the whole beer for me, resulting in a very unpleasant experience. I do believe this would be a very nice beer if it wasn’t so hot, which hints at a somewhat unsuccessful fermentation.

jbrana (512) - NASHVILLE, Tennessee, USA - AUG 18, 2013
A really outstanding stout with a perfect balance of sweet and dry. Has a really nice flavor profile that mostly showcases tastes of roasted barley, caramel, vanilla, whiskey, and some nice nuttiness. The finish lingers with nice chocolate and whiskey notes. Very good.

Bottle. Black with a thin khaki head. Aroma is pecan and vanilla. Taste is very boozy with notes of pecan, vanilla and coconut. Extremely thick oily palate. The alcohol heat does a great job of cutting the sweetness of some of the flavors. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ACHops (799) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 18, 2013
On tap @ Chuck’s 85th. Pours thick inky black with thin oily dark mocha head. Aroma is dark super roasty malt, thin sweet nutty notes, and big bourbon that dominates throughout. Taste is similar, with notes of oak, chocolate, sweet molasses, vanilla, and caramel. Pecans are mostly present on the aroma. Interesting touch for a beer, haven’t seen that before. Obviously sizable abv, but doesn’t taste quite 13%. Still, a pint of this will last all afternoon. Definitely worth seeking out.
