TheEpeeist (3709) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2016
25.4 oz bottle. Dark brown with brief froth. Nose is fudge brownie, bourbon, coffee, molasses, vanilla and wood. Silky, almost full body, with a tang and a warming buzz. Taste is chocolate syrup, earthy coffee, caramel, malted milk and soft bourbon. A bit of spicy heat on the back side. Rich and decadent.

750ml bottle shared with brother at parents house. Aroma: typical Alesmith Bourbon aroma, vanilla, lots of chocolate, lots of complex coffee. App: really dark brown with some red / burgundy tint, minimal to no head. Taste and palate: full body, so so smooth, medium high sweetness, soft carbonation, light to moderate high bitter and alcohol finish probably coming from the coffee. Overall: this is so well made. I so love the nose of this beer. The bourbon is so much present just like the "regular" BA but with a great touch of coffee. Perfect balance! Excellent!

Johnsense (1754) - - OCT 22, 2017
Pitch black pour, smaller tan head. Gobs of lace. Aroma of rich coffee, roasted malt, whiskey, fudge. Taste is nearly indescribable.... Fudge brownie, light bourbon, rich, freshly roasted and ground coffee, wood, light chestnut. Thick full body, oily mouthfeel, and not boozy in the least bit. Incredible!

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Bottle shared at home, kind courtesy of Maakun. Black with thin light tan head. Loads of deep roasted chocolate malts, coconut, vanilla, licorice, tiramisu, brownies, surprisingly little coffee at first. Later some pronounced coffee berries and hazlenutty coffee notes rise up. Velvety smooth speedway style supple full body, amazing. Massive sweet and mild bitterness. Soft carbonation. Great mouthfeel, lovely aromas. Very nice!!

Bottle shared. Black with light brown head. Huge dark chocolate, sweet vanilla bourbon, roast, sweet coffee, lots of toffee, fudge, brownies, some coconut, some cinnamon and other spices, soft alcohol. Quite sweet and under medium bodied. Almost full bodied with soft carbonation but it's not super thick which makes it huge drinkeable. Very very nice beer.

Vighals (4460) - Sørumsand, NORWAY - SEP 11, 2017
Svart med lys brunt høyt skum. Mye kaffe i lukt, lakris, toast, trevirke og noe vanilje. Fyldig. Kaffe dominerer også i smak, kjenner alkoholen godt. Søtlig mot honning, vaniljen er der også, sammen med en lakris som tipper mer mot salmiakkliakris. Lang avslutning. Alkohol og kaffe. (The Beavertown Extravaganza 2017).

elbernays (1679) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 10, 2017
