Pitch black in color with craggy mocha head that faded into a craggy collar and wisps. Aroma is a ton of brown sugar and vanilla. Taste is extremely well balanced between vanilla, sweet oaky bourbon warmth, molasses and a rich roasty malt base. Rich, silty body, and low carbonation. ajnepple (6960) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 29, 2014
On tap at Avery. Black appearance with a lacy tan head. Huge aroma of vanilla, oak, caramel, toffee, toasted grains, roasted malts, milk chocolate and light coffee. Similar flavor, adding a touch of bourbon. Medium to full body. Pretty dank, big barrel flavors. An instant classic, bottle it. Steve_0 (3744) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2014
On tap at Boulder Strong Ale Fest (2014). Pour is pitch black with a frothy tan head and good lacing. Big vanilla, cocoa, espresso, toasted malt, graham crackers, light bourbon and caramelly aroma. Taste is smooth - sweet vanilla, coffee, bakers chocolate, light whisky, whip cream, and pie crust. Velvety mouthfeel with soft carbonation. Awesome! cubs (10693) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 1, 2014
On tap @ Boulder Strong Ale Fest 2014. Pours a black appearance with a creamy brown head. Lots of dark chocolate and rich vanilla in the nose. Some boozy / whiskey notes as well. Caramel / toffee, dark chocolate, vanilla bean flavor. Not too overwhelming on the booze. Nice brew. craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2014
