Bottle sbared at the Brandon Brass Tap, poured a dark black color with aromas of fudge, light pepper, whisky and some roast. Flavors were the same, mellow pepper and light whisky made this beer amazing. Glad I saved the bottle and shared with some friends. Please make this beer again.

Black of color with a brown head. An aroma of vanilla, spice, dark chocolate, liqurice and coconut. A flavor of vanilla, spice, chili, dark chocolate, weak coffee and an oily texture. BREWMUSKCLES (2790) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2011
outrageous! in a good way. full of black oily inky chocolate fudge and balanced with vanilla. flowery sweet and banana with cinnamon, an amazing aroma somewhat boozy in caramel with some malt wafting thru. white and green pepper as it strikes me. burnt and ashy. not overly whiskey like to me but... brokensail (16695) - Dublin, California, USA - NOV 13, 2011
Almost black in color with a small tan head. Rich whiskey aroma and tons of vanilla. There is a ton of sweet milk chocolate aroma to it as well. Mildly roasty too. The flavor is intense in all facets. Lots of whiskey, vanilla, and chocolate. Very rich and decadent. MadIndian (2743) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Damn, this one is tremendous too. I’m having a stellar beer day. Incredible black pour with big noted of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts and whiskey.
The flavors match teh aroma with the addition of nut and wood.

Served side by side with a few other of the variants served in a Cigar City snifter because I can.
Beer is black with a thin brown head with some lacing, decent retention, moderate to low carbonation.
Aroma is sweet, oaky, strong liquor aroma, definitely bourbon / whiskey in the nose, quite strong.
This beer has a mild bite to it, strong, thinner than the virgin oak, boozier too, the whiskey and oak flavors sit on top of the backbone of the beer, interesting. The liquor is almost an after thought in this one, my third favorite of the night. Doodler (318) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2012
750 with gobs of blue wax - Bill took about 15 minutes to get through the thing.. Glad he had a Sawzall and a mini-blowtorch. Poured black as night with an oily thin head. Big Stranahan whiskey nose and vanilla aromas. Taste is thick with dark chocolate, whiskey-soaked wood chips, Nilla wafers and cocoa puffs. Sticky sweet but nice finish. Residual spices and roasted malts make this one a winner. Yummy stuff.... dcschiller (2211) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2012
Courtesy of Dak. Pours a dark brown color with a thin espresso head. Aroma has some awesome whiskey notes, but also a bit of vanilla, chocolate and peppers. Taste is sweet as you’d expect. Full bodied and sticky. Really awesome. b3shine (9488) - Indiana, USA - JAN 1, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter. Looks great; a viscous black with mocha lacing. Smells and tastes sweet, malty, bourbony, and smooth with hints of pepper and a great mouthfeel. Fantabulous. SudsMcDuff (8566) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 6, 2013
