750 ml bottle to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks douglas88). Looks good; black with foamy beige head. Smells of semi-sweet malt and booze with some bitterness. Tastes like it smells, only better, with notes of chocolate. Good on the palate. Good stuff!

Pours mahogany-tinged black into an English pint. Mocha head with medium retention recedes leaving spider lacing. Dark caramel, chocolate and soy aromas. Medium bodied with chocolate and licorice upfront turning to earthy espresso in the lasting finish.

750 corked and caged bottle. Bottled on11/21/12. Pours a thick, tiny bubbled, well retained light beige head, with some lacing, over a black (SRM 40) body.....nose is coffee, lighter chocolate, cocoa, hints of Bourbon, slightest hints of vanilla.....taste is a slightly sweet brown sugar/molasses, with very light dried fruits including plum, raisin, light coffee, cocoa, light Bourbon, hints of vanilla, finishing with a mild bitterness....mouth feel medium, slightly sticky, lightly astringent, alcohol hidden, carbonation low. This is a nicely balanced beer, and in addition, the Bourbon, has been used with a relatively light hand. adding complexity without dominance. It is a bit on the dry side for a Baltic, and the dried fruit character of the malt backbone is light. The dominant aromas and flavors are of the more heavily roasted malts. BJCP 8/3/14/4/7

750, corked and baled. Starting to think this whole series will be consistently great to amazing. Pours black with a sudsy dark tan head and plenty of webby lace. Big sweet chocolate and vanilla nose. Creamy medium body with very soft carb, goes a little watery in spots actually. Chocolate, vanilla, light bourbon, very soft woody notes in the background. Really a nice BP.

Dark pour with a great tan head. Loaded with a big chocolate nose with a background of cherries and dark fruits. Full creamy palate. Intense roasted malts mixed with bitter chocolate. Bourbon far in the background. A mellow sweetness with full developed flavors. Very enjoyable.

AirForceHops (3113) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 17, 2013
Draft @ The Ale House in Amesbury. Pitch black with lasting tan head that laced the tulip until finish. Aroma is chocolate, oak and light coffee. Taste is chocolate, vanilla and mild espresso notes. The oak is very light and subtle in this brew. Hints of molasses and sugar. Some burnt malts. Body is more on the full side with a drier smooth semi-sweet finish. It’s really good. Just falls short of being great. Well worth a try if you ask me. I would order this again in certain circumstances.

Bottle. Pours a pitch black with a huge mocha head. Aroma is wood and dark booze. Taste is burnt chocolate with lots of smoothing vanilla. Lots of residual sweetness.
