355ml bottle. Bottled on 2016-04-25. Pours a dark brown with a beige head. Aroma is huge bourbon with some fruity and chocolate notes. Taste is similar with lots of bourbon, coffee and booze. Great stuff. djd07 (16452) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Bottle thanks to Chow. Pours black with medium beige head that lasts. The aroma is roast, dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oak. Slick body, roasted malt, similar flavors to nose, boozy finish, very good. slowrunner77 (13368) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 1, 2017
Nice balance here. This dark brown decadent elixr drinks easy(ish) for a 17%er. I'd have guessed lower. Nice barrel notes, with a good balance of cocoa and vanilla. Malty and sweet. Smooth. jimhilt (2641) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - OCT 13, 2017
Pours a two finger light brown head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Good carbonation and medium bodied. Bourbon, vanilla and coffee nose and flavor follows, bourbon, oak, coffee, hops are hidden. Very high ABV, 17.4%, is noticeable but not overpowering. Expensive at $14.95 for a 12oz bottle, bottled 4/25/2016 from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

Mooch tasting at Matt'sfiery1 (1818) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2017
Black color, pours light, the head disappears quickly. Aroma of dark chocolate shavings and vanilla. Good combination of chocolate and vanilla, the alcohol reduces the sweetness feeling and highlights the chocolate, burning alcohol feeling. Barrel. Some liquorice.
330ml bottle @ Matt’s. Pours opaque black with a small tan head. Nose is bourbon, barrels, cocoa, some vanilla. The nose is delicious unto it’s own. Flavour is upfront sweet bourbon and dark chocolate with subtle vanilla. It then fades a to a bitter chocolate warming finish. For the abv it’s rather smooth, however it’s not as delicious as how it comes off on the nose. Ferris (17779) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2017
Bottle - Boozy bourbon notes. Deep brown with a small white head. Fudge dark chocolate, harsh barrel and vanilla notes. A bit rough and disjointed, sweet, bitter and booze. Oakes (19549) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2017
Dark brown. No head. Sweet, mapley, figgy, chocolate aroma is rich and decadent. On the palate, chocolate, mapley, rich and alcoholic, but with a big whack of sweetness to carry it across the palate. Warming finish with a nice sweetness. Complex. Nice brew. mcberko (20260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 23, 2017
12 oz. bottle, sent from wchesser (thanks a lot, Will!), pours black with a small beige head. Aroma is loaded with coffee, cocoa nibs, vanilla and bourbon barrels in good balance. Flavour is loaded with bourbon barrels and heaps of vanilla beans, followed by lots of coffee and a touch of cocoa nibs. Complex as hell, with a wonderfully rounded body that brings out lovely bourbon character. Elegant and deep. Fantastic.
