Bottle, huge thanks to Ben! Pours opaque black with a medium brown head which soon recedes. Aroma is cocoa, vanilla, slight rum, cinnamon. Taste is cinnamon spice, rum spice, chocolate, vanilla sweet, slightly pastry-ish. Hoprider (743) - DENMARK - NOV 11, 2017
Pours blacker than black with the darkest head I’ve ever seen. Aroma is a a mix between dark molasses, Christmas rhum cake, Soft bourbon, dark chocolate, and licorice. Intense flavour, so much malt it’s insane. Dark molasses, bitter roast, oak, light vanilla, slight booze. Lingering licorice aftertaste. Fat mouthfeel. What a super rich beast of a beer.

Bottled shared over Labor Day Weekend. Pour is jet black with no head. Aroma is chocolate and bourbon. Taste follows with the savory taste of rum making its presence known. Really great beer! Homer321 (5191) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Bottle to snifter. A huge cocoa aroma. Light booze and vanilla. Very floral as well. Pitch black. The tatse is nothing short of amazing. A velvet sugary dark chocolate with fruitybrum notes. Subtle vanilla throughout. Less tannins than the cognac. Pretty awesome.
