Good beer, but a little over-aged, which is surprising considering that only a quarter of it was aged. The Rye notes are present in the aroma but disappear on the palate under an immense oak and bourbon quality. It is a shame, as wheat and Rye really could have added a lot to this beer and they are lost amid the overwhelming oak and bourbon.

10 oz snifter at World of Beer. This is a massive beer. Slow sipping this one is the only course of action. The flavor is very rich and complex. Layered notes of vanilla, dark chocolate, dark fruits and tobacco encompass my palate. There’s a bit of alcohol heat to the flavor, but it’s merely warming and is welcome. The finish is near eternal dropping coconut hints in with the malty deluge.

On tap at the Tin Bucket. Pours a pure black color with a small beige head. A huge roasted nose with metallic notes, ash and heat. A big roasted flavor with plenty of heat, cocoa, ash and charred wood, some burnt toffee. I guess the rye shines a bit. It’s so big that it is hard to pick out flavors at times. Viscous. Quite nice though.

Draft to snifter. Looks good; a mostly opaque dark cola with tan head that dissipates into lacing. Smells solid; dark malt, chocolate, and oak with some nuttiness with a bit of bourbon. Tastes like it smells with a good mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

FlacoAlto (3850) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2013
A vigorous pour into my Sierra Nevada IPA glass produces a fat, two-finger thick, brown tinged, dark tan colored head. The beer is simply black and opaque. The aroma has an ample nutty character to it, lots of smooth roasted character, big toasted brown / whole grain bread notes, and a touch of vanilla that rounds things out, plus a finish that has some grain spiciness and alcohol heat to it. Between the nut notes and the roast malt character there is a savory, almost smoky note to the nose. This has a rich coffee aromatic like note to it, dark chocolate liquor like notes, and perhaps a touch of roasted molasses.

Thick, rich, sweet up front, and quite chewy, this beer is certainly a meal in a glass. Rich, roasted nut flavors combine with burnt brown sugar, chewy toasted brown bread, and savory, dense dark malt character that adds a sort of smokiness to this beer. The finish has a kick of alcohol to it, as well as a softly astringent woodiness, and even has some spicy wood notes as well as a signature Bourbon like note. Rich coffee notes, bitter dark chocolate, pine like hop notes, and some tongue numbing hop notes as well. Concentrated, smooth chocolate notes with a deeply roasted caramelized edge, burnt brown sugar coated pecans, savory roasted rye grain, and black, roasted alcohol soaked, dark cake.

Despite being a little hot, this beer hides the 13% abv pretty well. I really like the mix of savory, roasted, nuttiness, hint of barrel, and sweet notes that this beer manages to meld together quite well. Definitely nice.

Bottle from Beaumont. Pours opaque black with mocha foam. Smells sweet and roasty with hints of vanilla, chocolate and dark berries. Tastes sweet of chocolate and mild coffee with hints of bourbon, vanilla and slightly bitter coffee.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2013
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 (3969) - 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 (153) - 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.
