Marsiblursi (3083) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 26, 2012
(Bottle) Pitch black with a small dark brown head. The aroma holds boatloads of bourbon (butter vanilla, woodshop and coconut) and roast (dusty cocoa, dark creamy chocolate, oily espresso and new asphalt) up front. Undertones of brown sugar, maple syrup, chilly, cinnamon, vanilla and dried fruits (prunes, figs and sweaty raisins). Resinous, earthy and some citric hops. Brutal and fat nose. The flavour is medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter and light to medium acidic with notes of fiery bourbon, aggressive black roast and brutal hops. Undertones of spices, dark fruits and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is oily, round and sticky with a light tart sting from the hops. Light carbonation. Lingering aftertaste of bitter cocoa, resinous hops and mild spices. Full bodied. Macegan75 (856) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2012

[bottle courtesy of cgarvieuk] Deep viscous black beer with very little head. Swirls about like the best single malt (albeit a black single malt). Aromas of coconut, and sweet malty bourbon. On the flavour – all kinds of things – sweet cocoa, chocolate, nuts, chipotle, oak. Smooth and thick. One to savour  Benjii (3050) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012
In bottle, thanks Craig! Pours a black colour with a lacy tan head. Aroma of coconut, roasty malt, dark chocolate and alcohol. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Bourbon and alcohol linger nicely. BenH (3431) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012

Bottle at cgarvieuk’s - thanks! Deep black/brown viscous pour, thin brown head. Big vanilla oak nose, bourbon spiciness, fudge, some deep fruits too. Big rich chocolate front, warm alcohol, big bourbon spiciness, just a subtle hint of chilli coming through, nice roasty backbone as well with a long warm finish. Nice. cgarvieuk (26422) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 22, 2012

750ml bottle that poured a thick oily black sludge that left a nice coat of brown on the glass. Aromas of fudge, vanilla, coffee, chocolate, wood, and mellowed bourbon. Flavors are the same but the bourbon steals the show in my book. It is a nice mixture of flavors that left me wanting more. As the beer warmed, more of the bourbon comes out in the flavor, and some spice from the chili’s comes out as well. Great beer overall, I hope they bottle this one again.

From notes. Pours a big rich thick black with a super dark brown head.
Nose is big and sweet hitting hitting me with cocoa up front then a little bourbon and wood.
First sip I’m hit with the big cocoa and a warm bourbon center, there is some nice oaky notes, I get some vanilla in there and some nice heat at the end from the chilles. As the beer warms up lots more bourbon is coming out.
The mouthfeel is big, thick, rich, with medium mouthfeel and a big full body.
This beer is great, tons of flavor blended together in a beautiful way.
