Dark pour with good head and lacing. Lots of roast in this, and some bourbon to be sure. Tap at Snallygaster.

Transfer from BA review on 5-5-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a deep brown color with a one half inch tan head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading to leave lots of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a roasted malt smell mixed with nice aromas of chocolate and coffee. Along with these darker aromas are some notes of a caramel sweetness mixed with a little bit of a vanilla and an oaky smell. Taste – The taste begins with roasted malt taste mixed with some sweeter tastes of caramel and a bit of light vanilla upfront. A light chocolate flavor quickly comes to the tongue with an oaky taste soon following mid way through the taste. The caramel sweetness dwindles more toward the end with the overall flavor of the brew drying out a bit as some roasted coffee and a more dark chocolate like flavor grow stronger. In the end, the roasted characteristics of the brew stand out rather well, leaving a dry and roasty flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average side with a carbonation level that is rather average to slightly above average producing a very easy drinking brew, although it may possibly be a little light for accentuating the darker flavors of the brew. Overall – A tasty and very easy drinking brew. There is almost no detectable alcohol taste even at 8 % abv. The nice roasted malt and drier finish of the brew make this one a quite delicious and a dangerous brew. Quite nice.

"Solid brew as are most of this crooked line. Barrel faint at first especially in the nose but it opens up well. Only fault is a little prickliness and slight overcarbonation. Dark fruits, roasted malt and barrel are well balanced and tasty. Nothing is really quite a 9, but there are a couple 8.5’s so there ya go."

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - AUG 24, 2014
Pours the color of burnt caramel with a frothy head of khaki foam that’s creamy and lays itself on top of the beer. When the glass is not too full you can see cola colored hues and honey golds. Lace is shimmering like sea foam in the bright moonlight.

Nose is lush caramel and a fainter molasses. Coffee, chocolate and roasty malt. A sultry whiff of sweet bourbon and a bit of vanilla. The malt is earthy and fragrant. Some elusive dark fruits seem to flash and fade but the one that lasts is a alight plum.

Taste is dry roasty malt with it’s sweet underpinnings. washes over the palate with a surprising milky sweetness. Strong bitter coffee, dry bittersweet chocolate, subtle vanilla and tempting bourbon. There is a wood so light on this that it seems to be literally afloat, weightless on the beer. A slight warmth from alcohol as this one finishes crisp, dry, thinnish to the palate but with a medium mouthfeel and with some hop bitter to linger alongside all that smooth caramel.

Pours thick dark brownish black with a caramel head. Aroma brings light sweet bready and smokey notes. Flavors bring light roasted caramel malts and some nuttiness with a beautiful amount of chocolate as well.

Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium to big light tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, bread, light ash, grain and toast. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of coffee, chocolate and bread. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Pretty nice.

Cool_Bond (1439) - Kung av Öl @ Facebook, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2014
Smells roasted malt and chocolate. Good sweet taste of chocolate, coffee and dark malts. Bitterness is good and right and taking hold throughout the mouth for a long time. Would this be a bit sweeter, I would have loved the beer even more. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Steverus0 (181) - Shreveport, Louisiana, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours an opaque beautiful black with abundant toffee head that laces nicely. Aroma is mostly toffee with some chocolate that comes out more as the brew approaches room temperature. Brew is a clean chocolate and coffee, with mild bitterness on the tip of the tongue yielding to the more roasted character as it clears the mouth. In all, a bold and respectable showing which, while not delivering much in the way of interest delivers as a strong porter. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
