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!

Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro. How: 20 ounce bottle. Appearance: Pours black, thin tan head. Aroma: Heavy on dark fruit and alcohol, more than expected. Taste: Cocoa, sweetness, booze and then fruit and berries. Palate: Thin on feel and slightly carbonated. Overall: A very good beer but not beyond amazing. 3.8 is about right.

On tap. Pours deep black with persistent thin beige head. Amazing aroma of cocoa, coconut, caramel. Taste is sweet chocolate, nuts and a light bitterness. Medium-full body, light carbonation. Alcohol warms but well inserted. Amazing brew.

This draft brew from a restaurant poured a extremely small sized head of foamy brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a poor lacing. The mild aroma was dark malt. The mildly vinous crisp mouth feel was very tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of semi-sweet roasted malt mildly vinous toasted malt brown malt dark malt and hops. A wonderful best in class brew.

Tap at Happy Gnome because how often are you going to find this one in Mpls? Dark brown to black in color with a tannish head. Healthy half finger. Aroma is really nice...sweet caramel and chocolate. Maybe a hint of bourbon. Really does an effective job of readying the drinker for the consumption to come. Taste brings the alcohol punch to the table...definitely not shy. It?s got a good dark raisin quality with chocolate and subtle coffee characteristics. Nice sugaring mouthfeel ending with a bourbon like alcohol warmth. Little bit syrupy. This is not for the faint of heart but a very interesting beer. Rich and powerful. W00t W00t!!

Cybercat (4174) - Georgia, USA - SEP 5, 2015
Comes out of tap warm coffee-sable with a thick chocolate-milk head. Aroma has notes of bourbon, wood, coffee, molasses, well-roasted malt and semi-sweet chocolate. Bold flavor has bourbon for the headliner and co-stars chocolate, roast malt, coffee, molasses and wood. It is rather sweet but not cloying. Viscous texture has plenty of fizz and leaves a sweet finish with bourbon, chocolate and roast malt in attendance. Another perfecta!
