Pours inky black in color with deep tan head that held fairly well before fading into a medium collar and wispy head. Aroma is mostly deeply roasted malts, some sweetness either from the bourbon barrels or the honey, oddly indistinct sweetness. I also get some dark fruits in the aroma. Taste is about the same, with some toasted oats coming through. Good full body, silty mouthfeel, and low carbonation.

Bottle, Beers of Europe. Well it sounded bloody good anyway and another great psych label. Deep dark brown pour with a small tan head. Roasted malt, choc and coffee present in the nose. Flavour was dark malt driven and had some dark fruit, honey and vanilla notes with some bourbon lurking in the shadows. Alcohol rather prominent. Decent but falls short of greatness.

Coffee and chocolate, honey sweetness, vanilla and oak bourbon barrel, dark fruit, somehow all balanced in deep, dark deliciousness. Yummy.

Draft at Spuyten as part of The Big Woody. Pours jet black with no head and some brown lacing. Nose if chocolate, and some honey sweetness. Tastes much of the same chocolate, some espresso, honey, light oak, and some bourbon notes more on finish as well. Alcohol is well hidden but these big beers catch up with me later in the day.
