Bottle pours black with thin tan head. Nutty smoky aroma. Taste caramel malt base with nuts, wood and smoke. Very nice silky smooth palate -Iím not sure whatís in there to get this palate but it works. Finish pecan shell dullness. noticeable alcohol burn. Much better as it warms.

Not bad, let it warm up. At times the pecan shell flavor dominated more than the pecan itself.

Bomber. Pours black with a small foamy head that fades normally to a ring. Aromas are whiskey, vanilla, chocolate, nuts, anise, and medium roast. Taste has a nice moderate sweet/bitter balance. Very smooth and creamy. All the aromas come through in the taste and blend together nicely, nothing dominates. Spicy hop finish with some roasted coffee and whiskey too. Medium to thick body, creamy mouthfeel. Goes down way too easy for 13%. Very nice.

Black pour with frothy beige head. Aroma of malts, chocolate, vanilla, ripe fruit and slight bourbon. Taste of creamy chocolate, vanilla, caramel, faint bourbon, hint of nuttiness, touch of licorice. Full bodied, creamy mouthfeel, soft hops on the finish. Excellent beer, alcohol well hidden.

Hmmm, not sure what to make of this. Bourbon is Crazy subtle, perhaps too subtle. Body is dry. An intense cherry sweetness in the front that fades out ABV is practically nonexistent. Doesn't feel like a big beer this is also kind of bad. Lacks the depth you would expect. but it seems to lack maturity. Would like to try it aged. Still, imminently drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ferris (10780) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2013
Draft - Bourbon, dark malts, vanilla and I think I get the pecans. Jet black with a decent brown head. Bourbon and vanilla is prominent, with a bit of booze, but all in harmony. Nice beer.

DesertDevil (684) - Arizona, USA - AUG 4, 2013
22-oz. bomber. Pours a deep black with ruby highlights. Slightly nutty pecan aroma with cinnamon. Very boozy, spiced taste of roasted nuts, dark rye, cinnamon, brown sugar, with some black licorice, and a bitter woody finish. Very layered taste; you need to let it warm up. Medium body; long, dry, spiced finish.

ineedbeer (1610) - Oakland, California, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Aroma is balanced with quite a bold nuttiness. some moderate rye and wheat notes with a light, sweet bourbon finish. light fruit esters, moderate chocolate and light roast. Light coconut notes as it warms. Not much alcohol in the nose. Pours dark brown, almost black with a thin dark tan head that quickly recedes to the edges. Light lacing with fairly long legs. Flavor is definitely but forward with a lot of pecan character and a solid amount of rye. Moderate chocolate notes with light roast. Slightly fruity with moderate bitterness. Medium light alcohol spice in the finish with a light rye note. Finish has rye, chocolate, alcohol spice, and a light fruit note. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and silky with medium low carbonation. Low astringency and medium alcohol warmth. Finish is fairly sticky sweet and lingers on your lips. Overall an alright beer, but the sweetness and pecans donít balance. There needs to be more of a roast note. The beer could use more body to balance the sweetness and nuttiness.

BillKismet (3742) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 3, 2013
Dark chocolate body, with layers of rolled cream chocolate head. A farkiní good lookiní beer. An olfactory string symphony of oak, vanilla, and chocolate all wonderfully blended, yet understated. Body is creamy, candied, and boozy, but by no means over the top. Sweet and oaky with ripples of vanilla. A nice candidate for bottle-aging. Further attenuation and drying out will take this one to the next level and help balance it out better.

Pours a deep black/brown with a light tan head. Smell is roasted malt and a light fruitiness, with some faint wood in the background. Taste is chocolatier than I was expecting, again with some fruitiness, though it gives way to flavors of toast and oak. Slight vanilla feel in the finish. A nutty sensation is present throughout. This is actually pretty darn good, but thereís some heat to it that I hope will fade with age.

Bottle into a tulip. ruby brown on the head. Pitch black body. Quite complex, but wasnít a complete knockout stout for me.
