12oz bottle- pours a thick jet black with a med but thick tan head. Very rich aroma layered with molasses, coffee, baking chocolate, charred notes and caramel. A thick mouthfeel delivers intense flavor...espresso, chocolate syrup, a little bourbon and barrel, a hint of soy sauce and a lingering coffee bitterness. shawnmurphy (738) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2018

Batch No. 4 - Bottled Oct 27, 2017
Aroma - big Bourbon booze, caramelized sugars, chocolate, roasted barley, and spice.
Appearance - body is black. The head is around 1/2" and khaki in color. Hard pour is required to charge a nice head. The head slowly fades. Alcohol cloying that scatters some lace.
Taste - has deep rich chocolate, roast, Bourbon alcohol, some spice, caramelized sugars, and muted coffee.
Palate - body is full, texture is slick, carbonation is average, finish is warming and boozy, astringent, and bittersweet. bb (10113) - Alamo, California, USA - FEB 14, 2018
Draft. Black beer with a brown head. Caramel and toffee aroma. Toffee and caramel flavor with bourbon and alcohol. Medium-plus bodied. Toffee and caramel linger with bourbon, light vanilla, and marshmallow sweetness. Sledutah (8126) - Utah, USA - FEB 5, 2018

Malty aroma, roasted, lots of coffee, cocoa, mocha, chocolate, some soy sauce notes, light vanilla, dark dried fruits, alcohol, light wood. Sweet and bitter like aroma, hot from the alcohol. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. b3shine (9406) - Indiana, USA - JAN 21, 2018
Bottle to snifter (bottled 10/27/17; shared with the Mrs.) This batch is 16.0% abv. Looks good; a slightly translucent dark cola with beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes boozy with notes of dark malt, dark chocolate, oak, bourbon, coffee, and roast. Mouthfeel is full-bodied, moderately bitter, and warming. Good, not great; definitely overpriced. wojanex (700) - warszawa, POLAND - JAN 17, 2018
Za mocne i za słodkie, to jest już ulepek na granicy wytrzymałości ludzkiej. Kuriozalne, smakowe hard porno. Cukrem i beczką udało si€ jednak ukryć potworny woltaż, więc nie jest to trunek do dyskwalifikacji. notalush (6002) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2018
Man, you know I'm having a bad day when I buy this on purpose - it's as I expected - sweet, boozy burn - cloying, syrupy - heavy whiskey and charred oak - has the kind of alcohol presence you expect in a cocktail, without the pleasant depth and flavor - I should have just made myself an old-fashioned. Schwarzbart (341) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2018
Pours a half finger high, tan, creamy head. Black and pours thick. Lots of creamy drape patterns. Smells of chocolate, coffee, wood, some sweetness like a sweet stout and faint bourbon. Tastes like a bourbon liquor filled chocolate candy, so a good amount of sweetness, big chocolate, bourbon, and coffee. Full body, creamy carbonation and sweetness throughout until the booze takes over and finishes. Sweeter than I expected, but still very impressed.
