2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle shared in GTMW line - Pours deep black with a thin tan ring of head. Tons of brown sugar sweetness in the nose and lots of sharp heat. Taste is really sweet and sugary--not dry or roasty all all. Pretty grainy and no heat. Real smooth but diabeetus sweet--way too sweet for my tastes. Thick and milkshaky in the mouth. I had a hard time with my small sample--I couldn’t imagine a full pour of this.

Pour out of 22 oz bottle, thanks Caleb! Dark black pour with tan head, aroma brought notes of lots of coconut, dark fruit, chocolate, espresso, hints of earth, touch of cocoa, lots of bourbon. Taste is a mix of dark fruits, chocolate, roast, nice bourbon, lots of coffee, hints of oak, nice earth, dark espresso, finishing sweet, bourbon, slightly sweet. Very tasty.

2013. Mornin Delight blows this to shreds. A bit of dark cherries, needs more depth of roast. Pretty acetic; dark fruits. Not for me, really. Good, not great.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle shared at GTMW line, pours black with a thick brown head and lacing, the aroma is huge, chocolate, fudge, whiskey and vanilla, super sweet, kind of reminds me of a fresh Dark Lord, the flavor is just as sweet as the aroma, tons of chocolate mixed in with some oak and vanilla, nice thick mouthfeel, good stuff, just really sweet, glad I only had a small sample, couldn’t put down 16oz of this stuff in one sitting.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Wow. This was a big surprise for me. Big dark pour, thick, tan head that sticks around. Big chocolate, a hint of coffee and a nice whiskey smell. Awesome mouthfeel - thick but not overbearing. Big sweet malts give way to chocolate, coffee and whiskey heat. Beautiful, balanced but still feels aggressive with some boozy heat.

Bottle shared by TheAlum at DLD 2013- thanks a ton, Adam! Pours an opaque brown with a tan head. Aroma of molasses, chocolate, syrup, caramel, dark and dried fruits (dates, figs, raisins), and some warmth from the barrels. Flavor of molasses, brown sugar, caramel, figs, dates, chocolate, and some toasted malts. Medium-full bodied, with a viscous mouthfeel and low carbonation. Big, bold, sweet, smooth - good gravy, this is delicious.
