Tap at Red Cow North Loop. Dark dense pour with a massive brown head. Rich chocolate, coffee, toffee, vanilla. Slick dense palate. Yummy stuff. jackl (8217) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Keg @ Red Cow, N Loop, deep brown pour with a creamy tan head. Aroma is interesting. Strong roasted coffee and black pepper. Plenty of hot vanilla and caramel. Glazed donut. Boozy wood. Flavor’s sharp, spicy and sweet. Super oily and viscous. Solid, but lacks the cohesion of the best examples in the style. deyholla (11759) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 7, 2017
On tap at Red Cow North Loop. Pours black with a chocolate brown head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has dark grains and coffee with boozy barrel and a good amount of roasted malts. Flavor has lots of roasted malts, dark grains and coffee with a barrel presence supporting.

2016 edition. The aroma is licorice, some vanilla and coffee. Pours dark brown with tan head, mostly lasting and excellent lacing. The taste is bitter/sweet. The body is full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. Very Good!!! bytemesis (8587) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUN 8, 2017
Bottle. Pours inky black, small tan head, decent residual and lacing. Aroma is rich mocha, bourbon, hints of anise, slight smoky note, loads of chocolate, more coffee on the finish. Flavor is medium plus sweet, medium bitter, rich and decadent, like a dessert coffee. Fully body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty damn xolid. nimbleprop (8476) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUN 3, 2017

Roast and caramel. Well integrated whiskey. Black pour with decent head. Bittersweet finish. Creamy consistency. Nice stuff, though not quite as epic as Baptista like getting dunked in a river.
