great beer that lives up to the hype....strong nose that almost puts me in a diabetic coma, light coffee, thick maple sour, bourbon, sweet but pungent... the taste is balanced better not as sweet as the nose, more stout and bourbon, decadently awesome

Thank you Darrel (syndicate). Nice coffee and whiskey nose. The taste on it is great. Taste like coffee, maple, and whiskey. This one actually lived up to its hype.

Thanks to Shane for this. 12oz bottle gold wax. Maybe the most legit beer Ive ever had. Pours out a standard jet black, thin dark brown head that disappeared pretty quickly. Nose is sweet malt, some light spice. Flavor is amazing, maple syrup, dark chocolate, coffee is subdued but there. I cant put into words how good it is. Maybe top three beer if not number 1.

Pours jet black, opaque, thin brown head lingers for a minute, slight lacing. Flavor follows the nose - massive dose of espresso, lots of rich chocolate, nice roast character, bitterness helps balance the big malt profile but is not aggressive. Alcohol is pleasantly warming and generally well hidden, again some complexity and whiskey notes from the barrel. Fairly sweet brew but not cloying, moderately bitter, fairly sweet/rich finish

Coffee and mild bourbon smell. Super thick chewy body. Dark chocolate, brownie, and coffee taste with a bit of booze in the aftertaste.

Served alongside Mornin Delight and Assassin. The beer is near black with a filmy beige head. All hype and bias aside, this aroma is silly good. Oak, roast, coffee, vanilla. World class from the first sip. The definition of grace and balance. Silky smooth on the palate. Absolutely amazing.

12 oz bottle shared by Huhzubendah, many thanks Matt! Pours a deep dark brown/near black with hues of ruby on the edge when not backlit. Aroma is rich and complex: roasted malts, cocoa, dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate syrup, and coffee notes. Flavor is massive and delicious - roast, malt, chocolate, mild anise, cocoa, coffee, syrupy sweetness, oak, vanilla, and perfection. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, similar to MF of Triple Bock. A world class outstanding beer.

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.
