22 oz bottle drinking while watching th ncaa football championship. Nice and balanced. Notes of figs, tobacco, and blackstrap molasses. Also some exquisite dark chocolate. Very nice rye flavor in the barrel that types it all together. thomashall (1604) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - JAN 6, 2018

Bottle in Seattle. Opened this on NYE. Deep pour, dark brown with dark tan cream head. Rich and dark aroma of tobacco, cocoa, licorice and whisky cola. Fairly sweet body with great rye whisky richness. Lots of cherry wood. Very, very nice. Well developed, well aged abyss. Oakes (19532) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2017
Dark brown, rich happy chocolate aroma. Soft sweet, light molasses...the rye is really coming across nicely, too.

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa, drobna. W zapachu bardzo wyczuwalne whisky, kokos, do tego kawa, paloność i gorzka czekolada. W smaku ponownie bardzo dużo whisky i kokosu, poza tym dużo kwaskowej kawy, paloność, gorzka czekolada. Goryczka średnia, wyscyenie niskie, posmak whisky, palony, kawowy, kokosowy. creppyiceman (1228) - Cracow, POLAND - OCT 30, 2017
Aroma: coconut, roasted malt, milk chocolate, vanilla.
Appearance: pitch black, small dense head.
Taste: semi-sweet, flavour of coconut, sweet coffee, milk chocolate and vanilla.
Palate: full body, low carbonation.
Overall: Super coconutty, balanced brew, no sharpness whatsoever. Gentle barrel notes boost up the density of a base beer in a such great way, damn I'm impressed. gam (4155) - brisbane, AUSTRALIA - SEP 24, 2017
