UPDATED: APR 14, 2020 Bottled. A black beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted mlat, dark chocolate, caramel, and coffee. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, alcohol, caramel, cinnamon, and coffee, leading to a dry finish. VastActiv (11248) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 10, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 10, 2020 Tap at Churchkey, DC. Color is dark brown with small brownish head. Aromas and flavours: Coffee, some cinnamon, chocolate and roasted malts. Soft and creamy but maybe too easy. weihenweizen (5762) - Charleston, West Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2020 Refrigerated 2017 brown bomber poured into a snifter. Black with medium beige head. Aroma is cinnamon, medium/thick body, medium carbonation, and thick small-bubble lacing. Taste is cinnamon, coffee, wood, and some bourbon. Much better than the regular for me. williamstome (3051) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2020 Deep brown pour, small off-white head. Cinnamon, coffee, nuts, with oak and caramel.nice full body. Great. Bitterbill (2711) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JAN 12, 2020
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2020 Got this in a trade with Jay Whitson. Thanks Jay!! 2018 edition, waxed and capped.
Pours as pretty as a barrel aged Stout can get. Pitch black, 2 fingers of tan foam, superb lacing and head retention.
Smells of Bourbon, winter spicing..cinnamon and nutmeg, roasty, chocolate of the sweet kind, little bit of coffee, very boozy.
Lots of lovely cinnamon up front, a mix of both dark and milk chocolate, Bourbon, light coffee, good roasty character, alcohol ever present and some would probably say..too much!
Well, 14%abv IS 14%abv...
Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. I get quite a bit of bitter chocolate in the finish.
The best way that I can describe this beer overall is, luxurious. A must try in my book.

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2020 Draft at The Partisan. Pours coca-cola brown with a khaki head. Leaves some lacing in the glass. Lots of bourbon and coffee on the nose and tongue. I’m getting a trace of cinnamon on the finish. Hides it’s booze very well Boutip (7679) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 26, 2019
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2019 Bottle: Poured a very dark brown color ale with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of caramelized malt with some chocolate, cinnamon and bourbon notes is quite enticing. Taste is a rich and complex mix of bourbon, vanilla, cinnamon with some floral coffee and light woody notes with some residual sugar notes also perceptible. Body is full with good carbonation and light warming notes. Exceptional beer. tiong (11423) - Espoo, FINLAND - NOV 22, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 22, 2019 650ml bottle. Spicy, smooth and roasty with loads of coffee, bourbon, toffee, cinnamon, cocoa and earthiness. Quite good. Zymurgeist2 (3345) - Redwood City, California, USA - NOV 2, 2019
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2019 Tap at Harry's Hofbrau. Massive cinnamon spice aroma. Pours deep brown with brown head that leaves small bubbles around the collar. Taste is cinnamon stick, and slight roast. The coffee is restrained here. A beautiful Strong Ale, but a little heavy on the cinnamon. davidezdonz (1224) - Hong Kong, HONG KONG - SEP 3, 2019
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2019 A 22 fl. oz. bomber, 2018 release. Poured into a snifter glass. It was dark dark brown in colour with a thin brown head that although thin, stuck around, while leaving some nice spotty lacing. Aromas roasty, coffee, cacao, caramel, toffee, bourbon, oak and cinnamon. Tastes as you’d expect from the aroma, light roast, coffee, cacao, caramel, toffee, bourbon, oak, light cinnamon and a splash of booze. Creamy, light boozy warmth, full bodied, with soft carbonation. Overall, amazingly balanced in aroma and taste with wonderful sweetness, light bitterness and alcohol warmth. Great coffee and cinnamon balance. Just a superb sipper.
