4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a rich glossy black with some ruby edges. A nice mahogany head. Rich roasty malts, sweet brown sugar, bourbon, and barrel fill the nose, with a heavy booziness but not a pure alcohol. The flavors follow with a rich full roast malt, sweet oaky bourbon, peanut butter blossom cookies, brown sugar, molasses, very nutty, some buttery-ness. Very full mouth with a good drying oak on the tongue and a alcohol burn on the roof and cheeks. The booziness is there but it’s not raw alcohol heat. It is full of flavor and intensity. I can see why there is a lot of love for this brew and I can see why some people would give it a lower rating. I really enjoyed it and it’s worth seeking out.
Poured the color of used motor oil with a light tan head which was gone quickly......aroma of booze, bourbon, molasses, licorice....taste is thick and follows the aroma, licorice, bourbon, molasses, oak, booze with a touch of heat late. It is 8F degrees outside, this works well tonight. luttonm (6955) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 15, 2017
Bottle in Seattle. Tan head, very dark brown body, quite heavy. Roast meat on nose, soy and molasses, bourbon. Smooth and rich with very nice, spicy bite. Drinks a hair lighter than the weight suggests. Balanced molasses and soy in body. Very, very nice. PilsnerPeter (3049) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 25, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 Bottle 2015: Pours a deep, near opaque black with a surprisingly dense and well retained tan head. Nice malty aroma. Chocolate, molasses, sweet vanilla bourbon and mild oak. Slick body. Some apparent alcohol, lots of sweetness upfront. Some roast and licorice in the middle with touch a hint of roast towards the back and more alcohol/booze on the finish. A big beer that lacks complexity and balance. GTAEgeek (2497) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 25, 2017
2012 bottle. Pours black, with a small, bubbly, brown head. Baking chocolate, earth, caramel, oak, and a touch of red wine. Very sweet and lightly bitter. Heavy body, with an oily, grainy, and harsh mouthfeel. Just decadent. Might be past its prime, though. Cybercat (6334) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2017
Pours coffee brown with a nice tan head. Aroma offers coffee, sweet, roast malt, chocolate and caramel tones. Flavor presents caramel, sweet toasted malt, chocolate and coffee notes. Mouthfeel features firm body and peppy fizz. Love your uncle - I should because I have one in North Carolina!

Black pour, foamy brown pour. Aroma of chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor of rich chocolate, prune, and booze (but not as boozy as it actually is!) Rich, thick, mouthfeel. Fantastic. Xebbe (183) - - NOV 4, 2017
Enormt trevlig doft. Kakao och sötma.
Smak av choklad, vanilj och sötma. Lite spritig eftersmak men det är helt ok.
