Poured deep dark brown with a dense beige head. Aroma of roast malt, vanilla smoothness, dark fruit, dark chocolate. Full body, flavour of the aroma, well balanced. Excellent. beerplace (2288) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 14, 2016
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2017 2016-12-14. 341ml bottle (thx, Alex G.!). Bottled on 2016-04-28. Pours an almost black with a dark beige head. Aroma is coffee and some slight grassy and seeds notes. Taste is coffee, vanilla, roasted malt, some bourbon notes and booziness. Same aftertaste. This is a very good beer, but bourbon notes are almost hidden by the coffee ones, which are overwhelmed in this beer in my opinion. I would prefer more balance between coffee and bourbon.

2017-03-13. 341 ml bottle (thx, Eric D.!). Bottled 2016-11-07. Aroma is lots of fruits and burnt bourbon barrel notes. Taste is the same with some bourbon, coffee, and chocolate notes. Quite hot and a little bit harsh. Burnt barrel, coffee, and chocolate aftertaste. Too much barrel character that dominates everywhere. Again not balanced variant, but it seems a little better than the previous one. Though, rating is same.
2017-03-14. 341 ml bottle (thx, Louis-Philippe!). Bottled 2015-11-24. This batch is slightly more hot, than both 2016. Though, taste is different - much more bourbon, chocolate, some fruitiness, and even slightly oily.
2017-08-04. 341 ml bottle (thx, Alex M. for this old bottle!!!). Bottled in November-2013. Pours a dark brown with a dark beige head. Aroma is very nice with bourbon notes, coffee and chocolate. Taste is moderate to high sweet, with coffee and bourbon notes.
On tap at Final Gravity. Pours near black with a thick tan head and a chocolate and treacle aroma. There is a massive dark molasses flavor with some chocolate and a hint of coffee. Transitions smoothly into a warm bourbon trail. Exquisite! vtafro (7451) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - DEC 1, 2016
