Sample pour at GABF. Aroma of bourbon, malts, and wood. Taste is rich, complex, and smooth. This is an excellent BA beer, highly recommended! Thumbs way up! dnicolaescu (2686) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - OCT 6, 2016
BOTTLE 75 CL. Pitch black, espresso head. Strong bourbon and oak vanilla nose, some milky chocolate. The taste is also strong on barrel notes, but the base beer is quite balanced, with the sweetness kept well under control. Light chocolate and dark caramel notes, strong bitter finish and light booze. Smooth mouthfeel and quite easy-drinking. A good balanced impy. eRock_2013 (501) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2016
Celebrating the special occasion of accepting a new job and giving my two weeks notice with this luxurious brew! From about a year old bottle, this pours an impressive jet black with a subtle espresso accent, with a surprisingly full dark khaki head. Aroma is very boozy, smells like straight up whiskey and alcohol, with vanilla and char. On the palate, this is exceptionally smooth and not as boozy as one may expect in the finish, rich and full bodied, reminiscent of chocolate milk. Lots of complex flavors to be discerned, roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, quite enjoyable. Finishes with a coffee bean and roast malt aftertaste, like a classic stout in the end. Very well done!

Pours pitch black with a small brown head fading to tan. Smells of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and roast. Taste is dark chocolate, vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Full-bodied with a smooth texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Blue Mountain Dark Hollow finishes with a lot of vanilla oakiness. HourGlass13 (1020) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Pours up black with a small creamy tan head. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon, roasted malts, vanilla, and booze. Flavor is bourbon up front, vanilla, roasted malts, dark chocolate. You taste and feel the booze in this one. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Nicely done!
