750ml bottle. Dark pour a nice head. Sweet aroma. Cloying sweet with a light bourbon presence. Nice to taste one or twice, but very sweet and difficult to handle in quantity. Theydon_Bois (20462) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 29, 2013
Bottle split at Endo’s house, thanks to James (jtclockwork) for the trade, 26/05/13.
Light black with a thin tan head.
Nose is dark malt, chocolate, bourbon notes, dark fruits, woody tones, touch of booze.
Taste comprises dark sugars, dark malts, light roast, chocolate, bourbon, molasses, toffee fudge.
Full bodied, fine carbonation, booze and sugars quite evident in the finish.
Ok stuff if a little over sweet but the bourbon is kept in check pretty well and doesn’t take over the beer. italianjohn (3228) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2013
Black pour with a thin beige head and very light lacing .... aroma of vanilla, bourbon, oak, coconut, roasted malts and dark chocolate ..... taste of bourbon, dry oak, vanilla, light coconut, caramel malts, little roasted malt, dark chocolate and bitter hops that linger into the finish ... abv hidden well ..... mouthfeel is a little slick and oily Jrwhitney6 (503) - - MAY 18, 2013
Great beer. Pours a black color with slight cinnamon head. Nose of some chocolate and bourbon. On the taste, the oak comes through - as well as chocolate, with a slight touch of bourbon on the finish. Well made, really enjoyable.

Corked and caged 375 ml bottle. Pours pitch black with a small brown head that fades quickly and collects at the edges. Grabs the glass very well. Aromas are charred wood, ash, whiskey, and light raisins. Pretty smooth taste, lots of charred wood, some cocoa, raisins, light whiskey. Flavors blend well together. Thick body and an oily, chalky mouthfeel. Smooth, whiskey and dark roast finish. Overall, pretty solid, would probably age well.

Bottle. Black, nearly opaque. Aaahh. Very enjoyable... You can definitely taste the wood barrel. Sweet, that awesome burnt taste. Easy drinker! Just sweet enough. RobertDale (6755) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bomber. Pours almost black with a nice tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, fruit, and bourbon. Taste is roasted malt, dark fruit, bourbon, chocolate, and molasses. Nice! burg326 (5596) - Florida, USA - APR 28, 2013
750ml bottle corked and caged, poured a black color with aromas of roast, chocolate, vanilla, light bourbon and some earth. Flavors are the same, light fudge and bourbon in the aftertaste. A very nice barrell aged beer. BlowOffTube (501) - Michigan, USA - APR 26, 2013
Decent and easily accessible. Pours black with tan head. Smells of slight bourbon and oak. Light carbonation with a medium body. Light bourbon and oak, raisns, and toffee. Not my favorite but still good. I prefer dragons milk. r464 (2362) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2013
Very dark with a thin tannish colored head. Full and complex. Cherry, oak, whiskey, raisin, cocoa, coffee, fig. A bit earthy. The barrel aging is definitely noticed in the flavor.
