JStax (2860) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JAN 26, 2014
750 ml bottle poured into a mini-snifter. Pours a thick motor oil black with a dark brown head of foam. I get notes of honey, leather, anise, booze. The taste is super sweet and boozy. Really thick mouthfeel. Very low carbonation.

Poured from a 750, shared on a camping trip Pours black with a thick tan head, sticky and a very pretty lacing Smell red fruit and roast Taste smooth, roast and coffee, caramel, lots of heat on the tail, leather and earthy tail Strong and big bodied but alcohol is impressively well hidden for 26% Strong, smooth, very good

teddybeer (2165) - Madrid, SPAIN - DEC 18, 2013
Dark brown colour almost black with a minimal and quickly dissipating beige head. Aroma has notes of toasted malts, light caramel notes, hints of caffee and toffee, ripe fruits and plumbs. Flavor is strong bourbon, notes of wood, slightly sweet with a mild bitterness in the final, red and blue berries are also present. Creamy, dense and smooth mouthfeel on palate, with a high viscousity.

Prufrockstar (835) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle - Thanks for sharing, Corbett! Pours thick, viscous, chunky motor oil sludge. Aroma is big, chocolate, fudge. Intense. Taste: Alcohol booziness obviously, but covered as well as could be expected for 26% abv. Smoky, rich, intense; chocolate, roasty, just a bit of oxidation. Texture is chunky. Fucking chunky. Thick, viscous, full body. Lingering heat in the finish. I’m smitten, but this is to be sipped only in small quantities. Like a chocolate fudgecicle spirit. Hardcore. Too bad it’s so chunky.

PotjeBier (1603) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2013
Bottle @ BBF ’13, poured by Urbain, shared by Dennoman. (Double) Black color. Aroma’s: heavy roast, almost burnt malts, with berries and alcohol retronasal. Flavor is sweet, alcoholic, roasted. Strong alcohol feel (duh). Heavy, thick mouth feel. Finishes roasty and medium bitter.

mcberko (6054) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
750mL bottle, split 6 ways, pours a thick-as-hell motor oil black with a small brown head - thick as fuck. Aroma is dark as hell, with loads of syrupy chocolate, bourbon barrels, vanilla and a touch of alcohol. Flavour brings out loads of burnt roasted malt, moderate bourbon barrels, a little vanilla and obvious alcohol, though doesn’t seem anywhere close to 26%. This is the thickest, most viscous beer I’ve ever had. Though the sweetness is surprisingly very low - very dry actually. Very woody, burnt and dry. Finishes woody and moderately (for 26%) alcoholic. Surprisingly excellent. An elegant treat.

Bottle share. Thanks Simon! Deep brown and ruby highlights. Gritty, brown lace. Not "cap lace". I’m talking brown cream lacing. Aroma is heavy cherry, vanilla, bourbon, wood. Taste is so much bourbon, cherry, raisin, more bourbon, chocolate, wood, chocolate wood, bourbon soaked wood, licorice. For the ABV, this is so smooth. So creamy and dry. When it poured, it looked like a lazy cumming from the devils dink.

HenryXXX (201) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 29, 2013
Pours an inky black with no head. The nose is molasses, raisin, black licorice and bourbon. The pallet is raisin, molasses, anise and finishes with booze bourbon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
