Strong smell of pecans isn't reflected so much in the taste, which is pretty heavy on the alcohol alongside some molasses and caramel. Nevertheless, very warming and rich. Quick3Beers (1461) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - SEP 10, 2017
Pours a black-brown from a bottle. Interesting molasses/pecan/rye bread aroma, similar flavor, rather sweet. Pretty good beer. beern (222) - Alabama, USA - SEP 9, 2017
Pours jet black with a tan head with an aroma of malt and cocoa. Tastes of deep, rich, viscous chocolate, malt, cocoa with very mild bitterness of bourbon and booze. The finish is nutty coffee. It's silky and sticky and clearly full bodied with moderate carbonation. It starts slightly sweet and finishes dry with a hint of astringency. It's complex, somewhat unique, warming and very good.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2017 A kick to the face never tasted so good. Dark black color with dark brown head. Smells strong taste even stronger but surprisingly manageable. Make sure to drink very cold. Beachmaster (580) - Oklahoma, USA - SEP 4, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2017 On draught. Deep cocoa and dark roast malt flavor, with a light pecan and whiskey aftertaste. Good.

Whisky, semisweet cocoa, sugar daddy aroma - but the whiskey is cheap. (The next day, when I’m putting in my rating, the aroma reminds me of dark cooking rice wine) Burnt 10w-40 appearance with a small ringing tan head. Bitter cocoa, woody, alcohol bittering, warming, lots of molasses. Big beer, but I didn’t love it. On tap, Proof, Tallahassee.
UPDATED: SEP 1, 2017 on tap at wexford pub, whole foods. oily maroon beer, no head or lacing, licorice and port, nice balance with sweet midnote, then bitter finish decaturstevo (6343) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - AUG 27, 2017

2017 version taster at Taphouse. Inky black pour, sweet and boozy aroma. Taste is a melange of flavors, chocolate , coffee, brown sugar, licorice. Lighter mouth feel, heavier taste. A bit of burn on the palate. Nice! Resko (10) - - AUG 24, 2017

2013 vintage. Robust, sweet, sticky and warm. Black body with tiny skin of a beige head. Aroma is roast grain and nuts and enough alcohol to send the nose twitching. Taste comes on strong, with plenty of alcohol warmth. Best sipped, allowing it to warm, and the flavors to emerge.
A good stout with subtle coffee flavors, smooth, dark chocolate, and light currents. Light head, smooth palette, the chocolate lingers in the mouth.
