Did not live upto the hype. Not bad but this came with a lot of hype and it did not come through.

2015 bottle. 414 of 603. Thanks Couch! Aromas are chocolate syrup, light cooked vegetable, vanilla beans. Also seems like cognac aged more than bourbon. Tastes very smooth. Loads of chocolate syrup, sweet booze and vanilla. Light oak too. Thin to medium body. Very good but considering how highly rated this is, it’s slightly disappointing.

Bottle. Boozy dominant nose with some light pepper and licorice. Slight hint of a smaller bottle count. Light coffee. Slightly more hearty and beefy in taste. Very solid. Very light coffee. Overall a yummy beer but vanilla seems a bit smoother.

Bottle to glass. Bottle 342 of 688. Pours black with tan head, very similar to bourbon vanilla. Taste is sweet, sticky, thick, yum. Super thick and good, previous rate was better, but the website cleared, shit. It’s really good and really strong, I need an insulin shot.

There is no reason to add more to what has already been said. I saw this a few years ago at a bottle store. There looked to be a couple of cases.I was in a hurry so left deciding to return later. I did, about 3 hours later and there were 2 bottles left. of which I naturally bought, I’ll probably not have it again. Im too old for the crowds in Munster for Dark Lords Day but what a fantastic beer, That;s all that need be said

What a great beer. The barrel lends great flavors to this beer. Hints of vanilla, chocolate, big sweetness and bourbon flavors. Wow.

Ancient rating from Hunahpu’s Day 2012, I recently found my tasting notes. Figured why waste good ticks…pretty outstanding as I remember. The bourbon helps cut the powerful sweetness and adds a slight vanilla, creaminess. Amazing, of course.
