Courtesy of TimBottle: The aroma consists of a chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, coconut, alcohol, and faint hazelnut. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a minimal beige head that quickly fades to a very fine ring. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and light hazelnuts. The finish has vanilla, light bourbon, alcohol, and some faint roasted nuts. Itís medium-full bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, very tasty, but small doses is key. Nip bottles would be more appropriate.

I brought this one to our monthly tasting last night, 2013 bottle.

A - Pours pitch black with a small half finger tall tan head, quickly dissipating down to next to nothing, leaving very small trails of lace on the sides of the glass.

S - Smells of intense sugary sweetness, fresh roasted hazelnuts, bakers chocolate, vanilla, molasses, dark fruits, charred wood and plenty of warming bourbon. All of the aromas I expected are present and it smells just as sweet as I thought it would.

T - Starts off with the intense sweetness - mainly chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits and molasses - quickly being joined by the hazelnuts, charred wood and warming bourbon burn. Finish is really sweet with some mild booze burn, lingering long after the finish.

M - Heavy body with moderate carbonation. Huge, sweet feel from start to finish makes it hard to consume more than a few ounces in a sitting.

O - A really nice rift on regular Black Tuesday. We drank this one right after a Chocolate Rain and I think I actually prefer that one to this, but only by a small margin. Looking forward to seeing how this one ages over the next few years.

Very weird hazy black but with brown side tones. seems incomplete like lots of sediment. Nose is nice. Just a crap load of hazelnut like way more than Iíve ever picked up in a beer. Chocolate all there. like a candy coffee taste. The ABV is very well hidden..ooh the finish has a lot of burn though. wow. the nuttiness is like sweet pecans or walnuts..obviously hazelnut but itís a very nutty beer. Lots of vanilla. dark fruits. creamy lactose

750 ml bottle form Reserve Society. Nose is lots of hazelnuts, walnuts and barrel loads of bourbon. Flavor is chocolate, hazel nuts, huge bourbon notes that have only a slight alcohol burn after the sip. No harshness in flavor or over sweetness. Medium in body leaning on the full side. Carbonation gives a velvet smoothness to the stout. I cant believe that this is over 19 %? 19%, really? Damn, I cant find ABV in this brew. Crazy. The alcohol only make itself known well after the sip and only after I get through 9 oz. of this brew. Really nice warming sensation and a damn nice sipping Bourbon stout. Unreal.

madvike (2917) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle - Pours deep brown with no head. Nose is boozy, sweet, and sharp. Real sweet vanilla and brown sugar is about all I can get. Taste is real sharp and roasty with vanilla and bourbon. You can really taste the 19.2%. Slick, thick, and no carbonation. I could barely finish my small sample of this. What a terrible beer.

stumpyiliz (216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Nose of hazelnuts, bourbon and chocolate and alcohol. Pour is thinner than expected. Head is gone instantly, but leaves a thin ring all the way down the glass. Taste is sweet with slight notes of hazelnut chocolate brownie and a small amount of bourbon. Lingers forever on the palate with roundness from the high abv, whisk is the best part of this beer.

Madirish76 (41) - Whittier, California, USA - NOV 2, 2013
On tap at BT event. One of my favorites. Had no head but was a dk chocolate color. Aroma was nutty and slight caramel and oaky notes. Taste was nutty and chocolate with a slight burn in the finish. Med body...not too syrupy, but you will feel it later. All in all I am excited for this years offering!
