Bomber from Capone’s and drank out of a stemmed snifter. Pours thick,oily black and viscous from the bottle with medium carbonation. Brown head quickly fades to a faint ring. Surprised at the wimpy aroma coming from such a complex and strong brew. Subtle pulls of caramel and nut. Slightly acrid waft that may hint at a slight culture of wild yeast? Some cacao nibs and bitter coffee too. This is 13% abv and by Zeus’ beard you can tell! Bark belies the bite! Super roasty with a slight bourbon harshness that creates a nice burn on the tongue, which I am sure is abetted by the rye. Oak and nuts abound. Favors enhance when served around 50 degrees as opposed to right outa the fridge. Zero lacing, leaving scant evidence of the damage it has left behind. Interesting offering. Nice chase to this beer, took me a couple tries to get eem.

Jesterdeal (1984) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Cracked the regular bottle (saving the super hero). Aroma of nuts, bananas foster and molasses. Pours black with a brown small lacy head. Taste is super weird with banana nut bread notes and molasses sarparilla notes. Just when you think these tastes are going to become unpleasant, some great caramel bourbon notes creep in. A mouthful of this beer is certainly a journey. Shut up, Wesley.

TheBeerGod (5366) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Bottle. Black with a short tan head. Aroma is strong roasted malt, toasted nuts, smoky malts, boozy notes and hints of vanilla. Taste is strong roasted malt, smoked malt, toasted nuts, burnt caramel, vanilla, booze, bittersweet dark chocolate and hints of dark fruit. Body is medium-full and slightly syrupy withe a dense, bubbly carbonation. LOTS of warmth throughout this. The 13% ABV makes it’s presence known very early into this bottle. Finishes with more vanilla, roasted malt, booze, toasted nuts, dark chocolate and burnt caramel notes.

deaconmike (403) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - AUG 2, 2013
On tap at Taco Mac. Pours deep walnut with mocha head which dissipated fairly quickly. There is little lacing. Malty Roma with the sweetness of bourbon (but actually fairly subtle) along with oak and cherries. Taste is sweet with the bourbon flavor more pronounced than in the aroma, yet not overwhelming. Oak and dark fruit permeate as well. Full bodied with an oily, slick mouthfeel and low carbo. Overall, really nice beer - bourbon barrel aged, but the bourbon only plays a supporting role here - although becomes more pronounced as the beer warms. Abv of 13 percent is well hidden, but warms you up!

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - AUG 1, 2013
Dark fruit, black cherries and inky vanilla on the nose. On the palate,ore dark fruit and vanilla, with a defined pecan/nut flavor on the mid-palate... Which fades back into a long lingering finish of chocolate, vanilla, and dark fruit. Big, though not thick or syrupy... More medium-plus bodied. Alcohol is a bit out of balance at this point and needs more time to integrate. Needs time. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...
