Bottled. A black beer with a rim of beige head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, soy sauce, roasted malt, and bourbon. The flavor is very sweet with notes of alcohol, roasted malt, fruits, and bourbon, leading to a dry and roasted finish. Huge thanks to MadsBerg for sharing this gem.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled, thanks Marsblursi! Very black, no head. Fairly restrained oakybourbon aroma. Medium sweet with attractive rounded mouthfeel. Chocolatey coffee and cinnamon. Potent yet fresh and drinkable. Perhaps the oak has worn off a bit in the bottle, but the lovely chocolatey malty rests wonderful in my mouth. An elegant beer worth it’s extreme rating!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2013 31st May 2008. Big thanks to Kim Fett for hand bottling this and sending to the UK. Silky thick palate. Milk chocolate and subtle smooth roasted coffee. Subtle cherry and red fruit. All this and vanilla oak tones too! Lacks a bit of carbonation - probably due to the hand bottlling but nontheless a superb beer.

THE stout tasting Pt1. Thanks a million to Jack for a chance at the bottled version (5/688). Opaque dark brown beer, good sized pale tan head. Softish palate, a little airy. Big sweet and rich dark malts pack a wallop. Trace of vanilla. Rich but mellow bourbon. Smooth finish with a little spice and mild warmth. Lovely.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2011 Hand Bottle at home ... Deep black thin tan lacing ... light smoke meaty malt light bourbon nose ... smooth silky rich toffee malts ... bit heavy on the bourbon ... some chocolate ... Bourbon is overpowering this one ...
Tap at DLD 2010 ...This was the Beer i came 4000 miles for ... decent ... but the Basic DL ive had previously blows this away. So pleased to have tried this,and would have been devistated if id missed having it but not the delight id hoped for... As i drink the last of the glass the front to this beer is just what i want, it rich toffee sweet juicy and sublime (4.3) but then the bourbon keeps kicking me in the face.

This sample was a Heaven Hill. Very dark. Smells like cat kibble. Bleh. Tastes rich, whiskeyish, balanced with super roasty character and lots of sweet malts. Intense.

A gift from the brewer to Greg (through Kiva), who gave him a case for free with the stipulation that he give it away at his bar. Best beer of the night. Dark ruby brown with no head. Aroma of roasted chestnuts and cherry liquer. Flavor of chocolate covered brandied cherries. Amazing.
