Thanks Slovaksniper for this! Dark black body brown head. Amazing aroma of dry cocoa, coffee, malts, powder. Taste is sweet cocoa, bourbon, cola, dry cocoa. A bit of a boozy bite in the back of the throat. Fantastic.

Thanks Northopfrye! What a treat. Big aromas of fresh coffee and cocoa beans. Flavours are coffee, dark malts, cocoa powder, and finishes with a beautiful warmth of the barrels it was aged in.

Nearly still black. Woody, boozy aroma. Fudgy chocolate, oak, light coffee, soy, lightly smoky. Really good, but hard to not think the barrel didnt necessarily make a great beer better.

From Youri. Dark dark brown w chocolate head. Coffee nose is initially green. But quickly settled into a well balanced decadence with coffee first, bitter roasted malt and cocoa, and a surprisingly well executed and well integrated barrel presence. Bitter & Sweet and decadent flavor as well. Wonderful sipper. Can the bourbon really be better than this?

Dark black. Thin mocha head. I agree about watery fudge. More brandy than cognac. Not overly cognac (like Abyss - cognac). Warms up. Huge thx to yourilevesque!
