MrFecesious (1136) - British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle share. 09/24/13. Great legs on the glass. Aroma of liquid brown, maple, sweet coffee and slight amount of dark chocolate. So sweet, but so sweet. Crazy smooth, and surprisingly easy to drink. Liquid ice cream.

pushkinwow (2149) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 20, 2015
Bottle opened up at the 2014 Ottawa End of Year Gathering. Dark mahogany with no head. Woody, nutty (although not overwhelmingly hazelnut), booze, leather, oak, mild carbonation and full body with boozy and sweet finish. Not sure Iíd want too much of this but was ok in small doses. Best quote of the night goes to Karl - "I love nuts in my mouth".

theothermatt (251) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle. Big boozy nose of oak, vanilla, and hazelnuts. Rich and sweet body, booze, oak, and nutella. Iím not sure that the hazelnuts are truly the best way to show the underlying flavors of the beer, but they meld well into the profile.

Dr_Fellini (636) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with little to no tan head. Aroma is huge roasted malts, booze, hazelnuts. Flavor packs an even bigger roasted malts, hazelnuts, alcohol burn. Lingering sweet nutty character with a massive alcohol burn. Phenomenal! I wish it was just a bit more drinkable.

From notes. This was shared at a tasting put on by @mikem409 on November 7. The pour is an opaque light black with a small dark khaki ring of head and no lace. The aroma is big on booze immediately. Thee is a lot of chocolate, some great vanilla and barrel characters, coupled with a light nuttiness. I suppose I was expecting a little more on that. Itís almost a bit sweeter than I was expecting as well. The flavor has quite a bit more of a bourbon aspect to it, but is not too much. There is a good combination of dark fruits and adequate roastiness in the flavor that doesnít take away from the beer, but I think might from the nuttiness. The mouth feel is excellent. There is a great thickness with a lighter carbonation. It just clings to the mouth and hangs around. There is a good booziness here as well. I was expecting a little more, but itís really good.

Boutip (4920) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 6, 2015
Bottle: Poured a deep brown color ale with a medium size foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma of black chocolates and hazelnut are pretty interesting with light vanilla notes also noticeable. Taste is a very nice mix of chocolate and hazelnut notes with balanced residual sugar level which is usually not a strong point for the Bruery. Body is full enough with good carbonation and light warming alcohol. I really enjoyed this beer and I was surprised by the fact that it is quite drinkable considering the ABV and the base beer.

Dedollewaitor (14157) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle. Trade with AdamJackson. Pours black with bubbles on top. Massive bourbon, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Smooth and full bodied. Sweet - but incredibly tasty! Alcohol vaguely warming! Bang!

ryanfolty (1928) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - JAN 1, 2015
December 31, 2014 - bottle from the source. Black pour with minimal bubbly head. Aroma was lots of hazelnut, chocolate, vanilla and bourbon; like a boozy nutella. Taste started sweet vanilla and chocolate, the hazelnut then came in and lasted throughout the finish, when the blast of bourbon kicked in. The bourbon heat lasted well into the aftertaste. Full bodied and minimal carbonation. Sipping on this bad boy watching Mr. Woldwide bring in 2015 with the wifey, hell yeah!!!!
