(12oz bottle, courtesy of brystmar) Pours an opaque black body with a medium brown head. Aroma of bourbon, toffee, burnt marshmallow, Indian curry, caramel, Girl Scout Thin Mint cookies, toasted coconut, vanilla, bourbon, and dark chocolate. Flavor of chocolate, bourbon, caramel, toffee, maple, roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla. Incredibly tasty.

Bottle @ Presidential Suite. Thanks, Adam. Redemption from Bully Guppy. Black pour with a finger of tan foam. Tons of bourbon, maple syrup, and vanilla. Nice coffee, cocoa powder, and toffee. Some burnt sugar and a bit of licorice. Nice dark fruits, too. Flavor has plenty of sugar and malt sweetness. Lots of caramel, toffee, and maple syrup. Nice bourbon and vanilla, too. Good dark fruit character, cocoa powder, and decent coffee. Good stuff.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bottle… This beer rocks!… Dark Lord black pour with a small, wispy, beige head. The bouquet is a sumptuous swirl of fudge, coffee, toasted oak, vanilla and bourbon, accompanied by a hint of vanilla and a rumor of cinnamon. Full-bodied and chewy with pillow-soft carbonation. The flavor delivers on the promises made by the aroma - chocolate crème, dark mocha, warm bourbon and a light kiss of maple syrup. Sweet, cafe con leche finish. Muchos kudos to badbeer for shipping this world class brew my way!

Ibrew2or3 (6767) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2014
The bottle pours with a deep dark glass staining pour where a swirl puts up a sheet of rich liquid that clings to the glass. A tan head could be teased up with modest agitation. The aroma doesn’t mess around as it pulses with rich chocolate, booze, sweet coconut, smooth bourbon and then some dark roasted malts to big dark roasted coffee notes. The taste is rich and nectar sweet where smooth slick residual sugar intermingle with oily rich dark roasted coffee notes and big velvety chocolate goodness. Wow! It quickly picks up supporting notes of thin slippery sweet smooth bourbon mixed with marshmallow and vanilla. Wow. There aren’t many sippers out there that will entice your senses into a state of speechlessness. Wow!

Silver-waxed bottle shared by TheAlum- thanks a TON, Adam! Bottle #127. Pours a deep brown, not quite opaque, with amber edges and a tiny dark tan head that settles quickly into a ring. The barrel notes blast immediately from the aroma- vanilla, brown sugar, whiskey, coffee, maple syrup, caramel, and oak. Layers and layers of sweetness and roast. Same can be said for the flavor, with maple syrup, coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, oak, roasted malts, and cocoa beans. Medium-bodied - thinner than Mornin’ Delight for sure - with modest carbonation and a warm, sweet, roasty mouthfeel. The sweetness isn’t overwhelming here, nor are any other notes. They’re all big but don’t push one another out of the way or offend the palate. Man, this is good. I put it even with Mornin’ Delight because I like the bigger body there and extra splash of complexity with the barrel here. Lives up to its billing.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, danish style, big thanks to Kyle for cracking this gem. Thick black pour with thin to no head, aroma brought notes of big dark chocolate, big coffee, hints of slight oak, vanilla, slight maple syrup notes into a bit of molasses. Taste is a mix of big dark cocoa, roast, dark molasses into some maple, roast, slight oak into a bit of earth, lots of espresso bean, nice earth, finishing slightly dry, bitter, nice and sweet. Very tasty, but I prefer mornin delight.
