Bottle from Austin - thanks. Pours dark brown with a mocha head. Nose is huge chocolate sweetness, with malt, toffee, oak. Flavor is vanilla, chocolate, malt, toffee, light coffee. Slightly more watery mouthfeel than I was expecting. Had a few sips that reminded me of Peruvian Morning. Really good.

Pitch black with small brown head. The bourbon aroma is upfront, with the roasted malt notes; later there are notes of spices, wood. Moderate sweetness, mostly because the alcohol is very strong; deep chocolate flavor, molasses, touch of tar, some alcohol.
UPDATED: SEP 10, 2017 650ml bottle at Alex's (thx, Yannick P.!). Pours a an almost black with a beige head. Aroma is bourbon, chocolate, some chocolate waffles notes, fruity. Same taste with some slight booziness. Fantastic! fiery1 (1561) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017

Bottle - Boozy bourbon, dark chocolate and dark toffee. Jet black brown with a decent brown head. Nice bourb and barel notes, toasted coconut. Nice. Oakes (18472) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2017
Very dark brown. Thin head. So pretty big aroma on this one - bourbon, chocolate, touch of coffee and brown sugar. Burly alcohol note. Rich and sweet, some vanillins, touch of wood, the sweetness of really old rum. Finish is quite boozy, quite sweet, lots of bourbon notes, and a fair bit of sweet chocolate, maybe with a touch of almond. Good brew.
