4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample from bottle. Aroma discreet, some dark malt and whisky notes. Taste is complex, whiskey and vanilla notes at first, then lots of dark malt. Finish reminds of cigar ash, long and a bit astringent.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. An opaque black beer, with a large, frothy, mostly lasting, brown head. The aroma is modeartely to heavily malty (roasted grain, chocolate, molasses, some coffee), with notes of wood, smoke, whiskey, vanilla, licorice, prunes/dark fruits and alcohol. The flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Full body, thick texture, soft carbonation, very long finish with light to moderate bitterness, moderately to heavily alcoholic. Excellent aroma, without the whiskey being overwhelming, on the contrary adding complexity. Nicely structured, with a strong amount of booze. Fatiguing, but not to the point of being cloying. A recommended sipper.

4.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
33cl bottle. Pours pitch black with an incredible tan head, very nice. The aroma is quite oaky, with lots of licorice notes and hints of dark chocolate. Not exactly as expected. Amazing taste: roasted malts and sweet malts work together in that brew and, of course, without masking the traces of cocoa. Some coffee presence as well (subtle). The wood and the whisky in the back are so evident and pleasant. Mouthfeel is full, good carbonation. Wonderful overall.

UPDATED: JUL 30, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a small firm, very dark tan head atop. Lovely lacing left. Nose is loads of white chocolate, creamy vanilla and custard tones with some whipped cream in there and light whisky. Whisky is quite subdued which is in tune to my tastes. Creamy melted white chocolate and light and sweet coffee meld together nicely. Unbelievable balance. Very creamy mouth feel. Definitely for the sweet tooths out there. Damn good beer, will be sticking a few of these aside

Thick big dark chocolate, tons of whisky, big dark fruity notes. The mouth is really syrupy, almost too syrupy, sweet, but very enjoyable with lots of whisky notes and dark chocolate. Very enjoyable.
