Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2015
This poured a dark brown to black with a tan head. Aroma was of lots of.coffee, chocolate, light green pepper and light barrel. Flavor similar, a little thing, but hides the booze very well, very drinkable. Great stuff.

Art (3220) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Dark brown black pour with a medium brown head that quickly dissipated. Aroma of light whiskey, coffee, roasty malts. Taste is sweet with a slight acrid coffee bitterness in the finish. Slightly fudgey in the finish too. Very drinkable. Medium light body. Smooth. Lower carb. Digging it.

kaser (6382) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Black pour with brownish ring of head, fluffy. 22oz bottle poured at home from Blackwells. Nuts, coffee, roasty and milky aroma. Taste big. Cocoa, rich chocoate, rich coffee, and a hint of the whiskey barrels. Hides the big ABV - more like drinking a tasty coffee/cocoa smoothy than a heavy beer. Fantastic..

Just fyi, Mine says "release #40, 11.5%alc vol..., DEH# 1917". Bottle from Choice Beverages. Pours black with a thin khaki head. The aromas are cocoa, chocolate, cold coffee and whiskey. The mouthfeel is dry, roasty and bitter with a heavy body and good carbonation. Phenomenal brew. Cheers!

CanIHave4Beers (4227) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 21, 2015
Wife dug this rating out of some unknown corner of the house while cleaning.
Pours basically black with a small head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is coffee and some maple. It’s roasty, it’s sweet smelling, it’s chocolaty. The bourbon barrel is pronounced but well controlled.

The flavor is coffee and chocolate dominantly, It’s got some vanilla and generally bourbon barrel character. The bitterness balances the sweetness to some degree.

Pretty nice.

3.8
Nocturne (1992) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2015
Tap at Devil Craft Hamamatsucho, Tokyo. Looks the part: menacing black, rich brown head. Aroma like a good cup of coffee. Taste is roasty, coffee, dusting of baking chocolate to round it off. Sticky maltiness, some dryness. Bit heavy going but nicely powerful and flavourful.
