4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!… Murky, dark brown pour with a small, creamy, khaki head. The aroma is a deep, complex tapestry of damp soil, burnt malt, dried plum and malt whiskey. Full-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. The Flavor is sweet and features bold, roasted malts, charcoal, espresso and 85% cacao black chocolate. Lingering sweetness, roastiness and Pappy warmth in the lengthy finish. A sweet, viscous sipper for sure. Big thanks to landhoney for reeling in this world class beer!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample from a 12oz bottle. #198, bottled 1-18-13. Dark brown, but clear color around the edge. Minimal off-white head. Big vanilla, lightly spicy, brownie-like nose. Some marshmallow. Warmth in the taste. Some very light burn, but not too bad at all. Bigger body, but dry in the finish. Light bite, for the suggested alcohol. Tasty stuff. A little hot, but it’s an enjoyable, high quality hotness

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Woodshed 3.0! Big thanks to dak for saving this whole series and sharing with us. Awesome!! Bottle pours with a dark looking body that supports a tan head of foam. The aroma offers up chocolate, brown sugar sweetened dark roasted malts, marshmallow and smooth bourbon. The taste delivers smooth goodness in the form of lots of residual sugars, chocolate, dark roasted malts, dark roasted coffee, smooth sweet bourbon booze and then more chocolate. This is smooth, richly sweet and just yummy.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured thick, black and oily with a small foamy brown head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel, chocolate and bread dough. The flavor was sweet and malty chocolate syrup, strong coconut, faint vanilla and anise. Very long sweet chocolate syrup and coconut finish. Full bodied. Fantastic.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
First rating! This one poured an inky black color into a voodoo snifter with avery small dark tan head. Aroma was lots of booze, bourbon, light oak, roasted malt, and dark chocolate, light dark fruit notes too. Flavro was very nice, much like bourbon soaked dark chocolate, mixed with some figs and cherries. Only downfall on the taste is this one is still pretty hot, but pretty much expected for an over 15% BA beer.
