zdk9 (183) - Texas, USA - JUN 27, 2011
(750ml bottled 9/2/10 thanks to thirdeye11) Pours black, dark cocoa head. Smells like cooked cereal grains- oatmeal and grits, some roast. Taste is sweeter, and more complex- sweet raisins, roast, a bit of vanilla, aged rum, some harsh vodka. Good but strong.

hayduke (4288) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 20, 2011
From Paul’s Grocery in McCall, ID the 750 ml C&C bottle pours jet black with a small dark tan head and lots of lacing. Nose of licorice. Full rich body and a smooth creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is more complex than the aroma with chocolate, oak, and of course licorice. the finish is chocolate and lightly bitter. The high alcohol content is not apparent or obtrusive. Very well balanced, very tasty, and nice drinking.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 16, 2011
Tap at Maple Tree Inn, Blue Island, IL.:Black pour with substantial head. Nose is roasted grain, chocolate, anise, spicy, vanilla, oak, and alcoholic. Huge ABV is prominent but not offensively so...a tad drying in the finish. This despite all the intensely sweet flaor notes that precede it...Chocolate, vanilla, big anise, oak, roasted barley. Relatively lively carbonation. Complex beer and extraordinarily potent...so be careful with this one.

Chalsk (1101) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2011
At Capone’s for the Cigar City Philly Beer Week Event with Leafs93 and O’Meara. Thanks to the Uinta guys for this sample. Pours a dark brown color with a caramel colored head. Has a sweet licorice taste with some nice layered chocolate notes. Nice bitter layers with the espresso flavors. The booze comes through but compliments the beer nicely. Very solid beer.
