Some hype, but this really is a damn solid beer. Pours with a large tan head that stays over a deep, inky black body. Glass coating. Aroma is minerally, chocolaty, raisins, a nice burn (both alcohol and pepper heat), vanilla and some bourbon. Taste is vanilla, cinnamon, mexican mole, chocolate, dry bourbon and wood notes, mexican coffee, pepper burn, but the alcohol is well hidden on the flavor. Syrupy mouthfeel. Would go well with a chocolate chip cookie!

Had this on tap at Cigar City. Beautiful black, opaque color. Definately get a bit of burbon in the nose, and a decent creamy aroma. Feels great in the mouth, and smooth going down. The bourbon isn’t readily noticed in the flavor, but more so in the heat going down. Great beer!

(Draught) Pours an opaque black body with a thick brown head. Aroma of bourbon, oak, roastiness, toasted coconut, and dark chocolate. Flavor of oak, chocolate, chilies, licorice, roasted malt, some caramel, and bourbon with a dry, bitter finish. Excellent!

Very similar to the regular but with a good amount of bourbon in the nose. Stings the nostrils. Seem to have a bit more alcohol burn at the finish. Great beer at a great event. Thanks Cigar City!!!

Pours out black with some brown head. Big chocolate and bourbon taste. A great treatment to a very good stout. Would like to get this in a bottle.

UPDATED: MAR 14, 2010 Pours pitch black and completely opaque without even the faintest hint of lighter color when held to a light source. Two finger frothy dark chocolate mocha head with excellent retention, only slowly fading into a thick lasting ring that leaves sporadic spots of lacing behind. Sweet bourbon aroma that isn’t overpowering allowing the roasted malt, sweet chocolate and cinnamon spicy chilli peppers. There’s also some earthy oak and vanilla notes. Flavor similar to aroma with a lot more pepper spice than the nose leads on. Lots of silky sweet chocolate malts, slightly roasted coffee and spicy cinnamon peppers. Like the nose, there is a nice earthy oak and vanilla flavor that balances things out nicely. This beer is perhaps to balanced and the bourbon takes away from the spicy chili notes from the base beer. This flavor does become more prominent as it warms. Deceivably drinkable.

JMFG (1587) - Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Dark rich pour, thin dark tan head. Chocolate aroma, slight spice, moderate bourbon presence. The barrel adds a nice oaky touch to the base beer. Excellent.

Rich thick jet black. Aroma has light bourbon, great roast level and nice sweetness. Flavor is light bourbon, mellow spice. Easy drinking for a BA beer.

Growler at Woodshop 5.0 (2/20/10): Pours an oily opaque black with a thin ring of khaki-colored head. Has a sweet, rich dark caramel malty nose with some smooth vanilla oaky bourbon and rum raisins. Starts with good fullness and rich dark caramel sweetness with some peppery spice and black licorice complexity before a warming sweet rich dark chocolate finish. Could use a little more body and sweetness to balance the warmth of the spice, but a nice beer regardless.
