Bottle shared with Labfrogg. Plum, raisin, coffee, a lot like Port aroma. Pours dark black with quickly dissipating tan head that almost boils away. Cascade of flavors. Coffee, bourbon, molasses, dried fruit. Simply amazing. The best beer I have had to date. Thanks, bro.
Bottled. Pours deep chestnut color, tan head. Aroma is lots of bourbon, dark fruit, plum, raisin, vanilla, booze, licorice. Flavor is dark fruit, chocolate, booze, lots of plum and other dark fruit, bourbon, toffee. Solid. Nothing special. MrTipple (5964) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2017

17.4% version from March 27th 2012. Opaque black - brown beer, good dark tan head. Palate is airy and has modest fine carbonation. Rich dark malts, quite fruity. Spicy coffee. Brandy alcohol dominates any bourbon. Finishes with more spicy tangy coffee and dark fruits. Spicy alcohol linger. Full on, five years old but could have left it another five I reckon!
Had on tap. Dark brown pour with cascading carbonation. Small head that dissipates. Big boozy aroma with notes of vanilla, fruit, and spices. Taste is smooth. Great booze taste with full mouthfeel of all ingredients coming through. One of my favorite barrel aged beers.

At the brewery, with the same group, pours a dark black pour with a java head. Nose is whiskey and heavy malt. Taste is upfront whiskey with heavy malt.
Finishes on whiskey malty notes with a long finish. Another sipper ! Quaff Score 8 / 10....8-3-8-4-18

bottle. Thick black with small head. Big ass stout matched with big bourbon. Plenty of flavor to go around. Dark fruit, chocolate, somewhat hot bourbon, light oak. I can’t say it all melds perfectly, but it’s a very good beer nonetheless.

Wow. One mother of a stout. Very intense. Pours a thick black... Almost no head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, dried fruit. Flavours are sherry, dried fruit, burnt malts, bourbon, dark chocolate, espresso. Heat on the way down. Excellent, but a sipper.
