Bottle. Pour is darker brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor of cocoa powder, light roast, oak chips, peat, and molasses. Finish is not as sweet as the body, somewhat boozy. jmagnus87 (3302) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2014

Black/brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, BB, and roastiness. Flavor is sweet caramel malt, bourbon barrel, a touch of chocolate, and roasted malt. Decent bitter from the malt I think. Medium/Full bodied with good carbonation. nice Huhzubendah (3742) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Shared with Paul in a night of debauchery and palate assaulting. Black, opaque body with a viscous, oily, beige collar. Rich and delectable aroma. Chocolates, roast, oak, bourbon. So dark and full. Cigar City strikes yet again.

Bottle, courtesy of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small tanned head. Aroma of licorice, coffee, chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor is very sweet, chocolate and molasses rise to the top in this one, backed up by a solid malty base and ends with a light sweet alcohol burn. Nice in balance, great stuff. Misses some verbonden though. deanso (10101) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - JUL 8, 2014

Sampled at the RBSG 2014. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of bourbon, vanilla, oak, roasted malts and raisins. The taste was similar to aroma, with a little acidity and bitterness. Good stuff. kermis (14566) - The Hague / Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2014
