Bottle. Pours opaque black with a smallish tan head that dissipates fairly slowly with good lacing. Aroma is cocoa, maple, bourbon, vanilla. Flavor is medium sweet, light plus bitter, a bit hot. Smooths as it warms becoming a welll blended desert sipper with loads of vanilla and maple on a chocolate backbone. Bourbon adds a desert liquor feel to it without going overboard on sweetness. Medium plus body, soft mouthfeel. Egxsellent. phaleslu (10747) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2017
12 oz. bottle from The Party Source. Pours a deep, dark, basically opaque brown with a small tan head that settles into a ring and a small island of film. Notes of maple, vanilla, cocoa, roasted malts, charred oak, bourbon, brown sugar, molasses, and dark and dried fruits. Medium-bodied, with modest carbonation and a boozy, sweet mouthfeel that finishes sticky and coating. I don’t think I’d age this one any longer despite the heat. It’s got just a wee bit more fruity like sweetness than I’d want. But still very good. RichTheVillan (8298) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 18, 2017
