The Last Tasting at Bruce’s palatial pad. Thanks to Paulio for this treat. Opaque dark black-brown beer, good tan head. Really nice barrel aged - chocolate nose. Palate is smooth, light and slightly airy. Gorgeous ’Bounty Bar’ chocolate and coconut. A mix of both the milk and dark chocolate versions. Dark malt tang and lovely mellow bourbon. Dark malt cream and a light touch of dark fruits that gradually resolve in to mostly cherry and blackcurrant. The chilli is there from the start but slowly builds to a mellow heat. Light finish with a medium chilli linger. Superb!

Bottle at Bruce’s in London - massive thanks to Paul for this guy. Pours black and thick like motor oil with a thick, tight brown cream head. Smells great, lots of rich chocolate, coconut, hints of torched wood. Medium to big sweet flavor with oily dark chocolate, moderate chili pepper, some slick coconut. Full bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Mellow warmth on the finish, restrained peppery heat, a bit of toffee and coconut, slightly syrupy chocolate. Rich, dynamic, balanced - wonderful beer.

Bottle shared by Samantha. Thanks! Pitch black with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, chili pepper, coffee, and tons of chocolate. Really nice spice, whiskey, coconut, and vanilla. The flavor is pure coconut. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and whiskey. A bit of booze, dark fruit, and chili pepper. Like chewing on shredded coconut.

A nice mean black color with a brown head. I get the Jack flavors right up front, charred wood, vanilla, booze, chili, chocolate, toasted malt. Nice stuff. A bit over the top but nice.

Theydon_Bois (9149) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 22, 2013
Bottle shared at Bruce’s, huge thanks to Paulo for liberating this baby, 19/09/13. Pitch black with a thin dirty tan head that clears to a swirl atop the glass. Nose is dark roast malts, coconut shavings, brown sugar, dark toffee fudge, earthy cocoa notes, bourbon soaked wood. Taste comprises sweet bourbon notes, light cocoa, molasses, peppery, sugars, light spice, dark toffee fudge. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light booze in the finish. Great BA impy, easy drinking, balanced and the alcohol is well integrated.

Don’t really like the base beer and don’t like the barrels used. But wow they did this particular batch right.

Scopey (7094) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2013
Bottle via trade, shared at Bruce’s place. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is rich, roasty, tiffin cake, vanilla, spice, wood, mild acidity, green banana, chocolate cake and bounty bar. The taste is rich roast, bounty bar, chilli heat, chocolate, alcohol warmth, mild acidity, coconut, vanilla, fudge and toffee with a roasty, warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Oily, big, rich and indulgent. The balance is incredible. A great melange of flavours. Delicious!

11/8/13. 22oz bottle shared by Edward Westbrook himself at a Westbrook event at Sweet Grass - thanks, man! Nice dark pour, good tan head. Big wow aroma - lots of vanilla, cinnamon, a hint of pepper, good barrel character - vanilla, fudge, caramel, coconut. Great flavor as well - lots of vanilla, cinnamon, even more pepper than the aroma, great barrel character. Really enjoyed this one!

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - AUG 24, 2013
Bottle shared by Sean. Thanks, dude. Pours a deep blackish hue, opaque and dark with a gentle brownish froithy head. Dies to a filmy ring, laces ok. Aromas are cocoa, cake, and toffee. Some spice, gentle pepper, firmer cinnamon and vanilla. Ancho, cacao. Real rich. Initial is fuller bodied, cocoa and roast, toffee and toast. Some vanilla, gentle pepper, cocoa, and mellow coffee roast. Some richer vanilla, cinnamon, some sweetness. Cacao, and mellow pepper. A touch of oak, spirit. Initial is medium bodied, a bit more full with some toffee, toast, and cocoa. Vanilla, cocoa, and roast. Some toffee. Firm cinnamon and pepper as we move into the middle and backend. Some good barrel, a bit of thinness into the backend. Some toast, toffee, and cocoa. Some vanilla, cinnamon toast. Some really nice elements. Finish is a bit more fruity, some dark fruit, black malts, and spice. More pepper, cinnamon than anticipated. Gentle barrel, spirit, and vanilla. Nice, a touch hot and thinner into the finish but really rich aromas, toast, and front end. Nice.
