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

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
