tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - APR 22, 2011
750ml bottle. Holy shit. Big, boozy, sweet, sweet, vanilla extract, sweet, Hershey’s Milk chocolate, fusel alcohol, sweet aroma. Did I mention the massive amount of ethanol and sweetness on the nose. Pours a lighter than expected dark brown. No head. No lace. Virtual no appearance of carbonation. Aggressively boozy, harsh and unrefined on the tongue. Not as sweet as the nose would lead me to believe. Also not as sweet as Black Tuesday. Still... The raw vanilla extract and harsh alcohol on the tongue is pretty nasty. Makes no apologies about being 18.5%. Three flavors here: cheap chocolate, grain alcohol soaked vanilla beans and poorly distilled alcohol. Surprisingly thin and watery on the tongue with... Guess what? A shitty hot boozy finish. Tastes like RARE for sure. Thanks fellas!

Bottle shared by alexsdad06 pour dark cola brown with minimal tan head. Nose huge booze, rum soaked raisin, molasses, fig and prune. Taste molasses and maple syrup, figgy jam, and candy. Cloying sweet that actually hides the 19.5% very Port like.

hapjydeuce (998) - Carlsbad, California, USA - SEP 17, 2016
Bottle generously provided as a gift by Greg Fisch. Stoked to try this one. Thick oily appearance with light carbonation. Immediate aroma of dark chocolate, bourbon, cherry, vanilla. The flavor is pretty damn well balanced considering the outrageous alcohol content. Flavor a of rich coffee, chocolate, anise, licorice. Ends with warming alcohol heat, oak and bourbon. A lot better than I expected it to be. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
