Bottle from a bottle share at the Syb Pig in Boca raton, FL. Small snifter. Pours a jet black with off-white one finger head. Aroma was fairly light with chocolate, pumpernickel bread, bourbon and oak. The taste was similar although more bold than the aroma. Chocolate, bread, bourbon, oak, roasted malts and a hint of that rye malt. Smooth body, low carbonation. Slight bitter finish like a coffee. Very well done.

This is a beautiful beer. Jet black with a tan head. The aroma is the weak point. Just a bit of wood and whiskey to go along with roast malt and biscuit. The flavor is very nice with a hint of chocolate and whiskey under the malt. Well balanced with just the right amount if bitterness. Well done geeks. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz bottle- Pours pitch black with a mocha colored head that reduces to a collar in a minute or so. Aroma is oats, chocolate, vanilla, some bourbon. The taste is very smooth, creamy, pecans, wheat, bourbon, oak and licorice. Body is thick and chewy, carbonation is medium. Very good, so smooth and mellow for 13%, you do taste the alcohol, but it’s not overbearing. Great beer!!

Shared a bottle with my brother. Aroma started out mild, got heavier as it warmed, then turned to mild alcohol (nothing bad). Mouthfeel: thick, viscous, kinda like motor all, full bodied. Flavor of thick roasted malts, some rye, I think I get the mild pecan, overall complex with less flavor initially, much more as it warms. Chocolate and dark fruit. Really well done.

MarkBarnes (407) - Waterville, New York, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Sept. 1, 2013. Sample from 22 oz. bomber. Chocolate/coffee notes; a bit boozy, but not overwhelmingly so, given the 13% ABV. Long finish. Nice.

From bottle. Thick and black with medium head. Smells like grapes and licorice. Taste is more licorice and chocolate. Soft bourbon notes in finish. Could benefit from some aging.

Fizz& darkness. Booze is well hidden.Wood carb buzz with some burn. Morishly nutty. Love those peacans & rye. lovely. How is it that everything Will wheaton touches becomes gold? He’s Midas without the downside.

Bottle, thanks Mike. Black with tan head. Nutty, meaty, slightly roasty aroma. Taste is nutty and roasty, some alcohol. Decent body with a bit of a burn. Decent
