boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 17, 2011
Bottle at a recent BA/RB tasting... Poured jet black with a thin head. Lots of barrel character here with vanilla sweetness, oak, ash, toasted-burnt sweetness, and roasted malt. Nicely sweet with some alcohol heat but I wouldn’t say it was bitter.

Beerman6686 (5340) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2011
This poured a dark dark brown with a tan head. Aroma was mainly roast, light chocolate, and lots of metal. Flvor was very astringent and metallic, with some roast and dark chocolate. Only plus about this one was the alcohol was hidden very well.
