   AROMA 10/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
kegbear (436) - Orange, California, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Black pour with no head. Amazing aroma of fresh ground coffee and chocolate. Tastes of BT with a strong but very smooth and creamy coffee flavor. My favorite BT version yet.

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 14/20
GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Inky pour, low carbonation. Nose is red bell pepper, diner coffee, hazelnut. Taste is spicy, sugary, some sweetened coffee, like a coffee and doughnuts breakfast. Palate is thick, sticky, syrupy. Not my style, but very thankful to try this one. An improvement over the normal BT.

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Appearance: Pours dark brown, no head.

Aroma: Strong dark roast grinds a whiff of bourbon.

Taste: Wood, coffee, roasted malt. Bourbon in the finish.

Mouth. Full bodied not as thick as og version low carbonation.

Overall: One of the most amazing coffee beers I’ve had. I don’t doubt freshly ground dank ass coffee was grinded into the beer minutes before it was served. Hope to see more of this.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Black in color with no head. Amazing coffee aroma to this. Very fresh, dominates the nose. Very minimal vanilla on the nose. Some mild booze, dark chocolate, and a hint of bourbon. Some intense coffee on the palate, too. Sweet brown sugar, bourbon, vanilla, alcohol, and more coffee. A slight nuttiness in the background gives a little hazelnut character. Quite nice. The coffee really mellows and balances the beer out.
