Bottle at SMX bottle share, pours dark brown with a beige head. Chocolate, bourbon, wood, some tobacco. A bit thin (not surprising given the abv), ok. Iznogud (4991) - CROATIA - JAN 29, 2018
Bottle, 650 ml, courtesy of Max. Shared with him and JFK10000. Pours black with medium beige head. Some bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, bitterish finish. Smooth. Seems a bit thin to support the barrel. Soft carbonation. Medium bodied. ciocanelu (3197) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JAN 28, 2018
Dark brown color with mocha head. Aroma had nice toffee, butterscotch and dried dates with a light fruit acidity. Taste follows with toffee and dried fruits, really well integrated but it fades towards the finish and doesn't linger too much. Medium to light body, medium carbonation. Really nice aroma but the low ABV doesn't support the flavor too well and overall feels kind of watery. jbuzz (844) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 26, 2018
Very rich sent on first taste Rich deep slightly alcoholic slight hops chocolate earthy taste slight chocolate and malt with a hint of dark fruits janubio (1002) - SPAIN - JAN 24, 2018
Black colour, small off-white head with medium retention. Creamy compact lace.
Aroma of chocolate, coffee, licorice, dried fruits.
Medium body, sticky texture, normal carbonation.
Taste of chocolate, coffee, caramel, red and dried fruits.
To be barrel aged, IMO, it lacks of some more punch and graduation is too low.

Acquired on a wing and a prayer, no experience with Anderson Valley. The bomber delivers a dark reddish-brown body and a slender, light brown top. I take a full smell. Caramel, grain, malt. On to a drink. Hmm, not what I anticipated. Lightly stout-like, vanilla, toffee and some astringency. A decent bitterness concluding. But far from a high level stout.

Pint, alehouse hawaii. Not bad. I didn't get any whisky taste but very serviceable stout. Not a classic as not much depth but worth a couple of pints. Travlr (26948) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2017
Draft at Haberdish. Dark brown color small head. Boozy whiskey aroma. Taste is mostly booze. Pretty boozy stuff.
