About time! On tap at Baileys. Pours a pitch black color with a small white head. The aroma is big chocolate, some roast and booze. The flavor leans toward a drier British stout with ash, dark chocolates, a bit of smoke, prunes, vanilla, woody. Light oxidation. Really awesome beer. I need a bottle or two of this. World class.

On draught at saraveza - pours pitch black with medium tan head. Foam tends to cling to sides of glass. Nose of booze, molasses, and brown sugar. Taste is definitely boozy with bourbon, molasses, cane sugar components. Nice beer to have on a cold night. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On draught at Saraveza. 2012 vintage. Pitch black with dark tan head beading like oil sheen. Aroma is bourbon, oak, milk chocolate, cocoa nib, and dark caramel malt roasting. Taste is milk chocolate liqueur, semisweet dark cocoa nibs, coffee, whiskey, and oak smoke. Finishes with a pronounced alcohol kick, with bourbon and whiskey spiking the awesome milk chocolate flavors.

Poured from tap to glass. Jet black hue with brown head. Arab is huge caramel, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, figs, raisins, nutty. Mouthfeel is velvet soft with a full body and nice carbonation. Taste is sweet with a nice bitterness following and an ethanol warming finish. Overall this is a fantastic brew!

Bottle shared on the RBWG bus tour (LaZoom!). Dark chocolate brown pour. Pretty nice n sweet nose of heavy dark chocolate, lactose sugars, and a touch of bourbon. Mmm! Thats good. Theres chocolate and vanilla sweetness that is perfectly balanced with bourbon wood notes. Well balanced and delicious.

1L btl. Thanks James Birnie! Episode IV (2012). Nose is vanilla, oak, alcohol, liquorice. Black, slight tan head, quickly evaporated, but heavy legs left. Taste is vanilla and oak, slight boozy warmth, doesnt burn, great balance. Palate is silky, slightly oily but not unpleasant. Whoa! So complex! Give this to a wine snob or whiskey brat and theyd be hooked. This is the most wood and vanilla Ive ever had with a beer, after 2 yrs I think the cocoa died a bit but its there in the finish. Top 5 Ive had maybe #2
