Yeah, this is good. Aroma is big bourbon, chocolate, fudge, cocoa, oak, and goodness. Pours oil black with almost no head. Stains the glass. Flavor is big bourbon and brandy, wood, thick molasses and cocoa. Chocolate and brownies all the way. Crazy good.

Pours jet black, like motor oil. Aroma of oak, bourbon and brandy. Taste is balanced, bourbon, oak, vanilla and brandy. Taste is smooth, drinkable and slightly sweet. Amazing barrel aged beer. Bravo ccb!

In short: A heavy roasty barrel orgy with a good complexity but lacing carbonation. Good.
How: Bottle 750ml, thick yellow-waxed cap. Consumed when approximately 2 years of age. Bottle from jtclockwork, thanks a lot James.
The look: Brownish-black motor oil body with no head to speak of.
In long: Nose is overloaded with barrels with the bourbon clearly dominating the brandy. Under that barrels assault of an aroma lies some chocolaty notes. In mouth the body is as thick and viscous as a beer can be and it is cruelly lacking carbonation. Taste is roasted chocolaty malts, burnt caramel, lots of toasted wood, dried fudge cake, cacao powder, sticky resin of some kind. Surprisingly in mouth the roles are reversed and I found the brandy flavor more prevalent than the bourbon. A smooth alcohol warmth that is not bothersome. Finish is very woody and all this wood washes the sweetness away. This beer was too much of a barrel orgy for me although I suspect I could have liked it quite a bit if properly carbonated. Good at first despite its flaws but my taste buds were getting numb when drinking the second half of the bottle. Another Cigar City beer that was top-rated beer when first release, if Andy Warhol was alive today heíd say that every beer from Cigar City will have its 15 minutes in the top-50.

Silphium (3196) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - FEB 18, 2013
Bottle shared by badnewsbeers. Opaque oily black body, no head. Nose robust, almost stinky due to the brandy, with lots of oak, stale coffee, must, chocolate liqueur, earthy, charred malts, old grapes, and ash. Brandy-dominated body with boozy heat; vinous, with lots of coffee and roast. Oily, flat body. Soft and rather thin.

Opaque black beer, few tan bubbles for a head. Chocolate and wood nose. Smooth palate, no carbonation. Semi dry. Unsweet dark chocolate and dark malt. No roast. Subtle vanilla wood, not sweet or creamy. Trace of dark fruits. Fair bit of booze which provides warmth in the finish and a warming afterglow! The booze is mostly bourbon but there is a little brandy. Very good beer but not a patch on the Bourbon BA Zhukov. The blending has distracted from both base beers I think.

Big thanks to Andrew (nasty31) for the share. 750 ml waxed bottle served in a Deschutes snifter. A: Super thick. Very viscous with an oily sheen on the pour. Even though the carbonation is pretty low it still produces a dark mocha head that recedes quickly to a thin, bubbly ring. Minimal lace. S: Brandy sweetness followed by a more overpowering bourbon and oaky booze combination, but it really plays off the heavily roasted malts and the brownie/fudge like sweetness at the back end. T: More oaky and chocolate flavors in the taste with a smooth booze. Some roasted malts with a touch of smoke on the finish. M: Heavy and viscous with a smooth mouthfeel. Carbonation is low, borderline flat. O: Very solid. It seems the booze came out a little more in the nose which I enjoyed, but the taste has also really smoothed out and become well integrated. Maybe Iím just an alcoholic when it comes liking a little more boozy flavors. Either way this was a real treat that Iíll probably never have again. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 08-10-2012

Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, brandy, vanilla, and a touch of fruit. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a minimal beige head. The flavor starts with chocolate and light fruit. The finish has notes of brandy, coconut, oak, and light roasted coffee. Itís medium-full bodied with minimal carbonation.
