Poured from a bottle. Dark brown color, short lived frothy tan head. Phenolic sweet malty smell. Thick body velvet texture great bourbon malt flavor and a smooth finish.

Pours a opaque black with a small tan head. Aroma is straight malt with little hint of brown sugar from the malt. Taste is sweet and malty. Goes down smooth and leaves a clean after taste. Not too impressed but still a good beer.

UPDATED: APR 4, 2015 Sampled about 2 hours after having Brooklyn Black Ops. Very comparable.Stronger whiskey in the aroma and more overall flavor. Maybe not quite as smooth as Black Ops, but very nice.

Bottle [from trade with ThrashD] @ home. Opaque pitch black color, medium to full sized mocha to light brown colored head that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair lacing. Aroma is malts, bourbon, dark malts, a slight hint of caramelised sugars. Really nice. Taste malts, bourbon, dark malts, caramel lightly, lightly bourbon sweetish hints, moderately bitter finish. Medium body, silky smooth texture, suitable soft carbonation. Very very nice beer, absolutely lovely.

Bottle. Definitely the night cap. Thick and meaty, this carries its whiskey barrel roots right up front in every aspect. The aroma is quite subtle, actually, hinting only at a rich, warm beer. And this drinks with an exquisitely well balanced character ... the oak-laden whiskey character is so finely interlaced with the warm, chocolatey beer that you’ll want to wish that everyone who tries this can do it so well. Very, very good! (#5344, 11/24/2013)
