2700th rating. Bottle thanks to Minh! Pours a dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is toffee, roast, and chocolate. Medium mouthfeel with dark chocolate, caramel, and nice roast finish. Very good. Tmoney99 (14494) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2013
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted, woody, vanilla and caramel with a small alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout beer. crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2013

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Mostly-clear dark brown ale with a small, creamy, khaki head. The bouquet is an intermingling of bourbon, caramel, chocolate, and both medium and deeply-roasted malts interwoven and then flanked with whispers of dried plum and vanilla. Full-bodied with busy carbonation. The flavor is a sweet swirl of caramel, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, and oak accompanied by more subdued notes of dark chocolate, bourbon and dried plum. Chewy, caramel finish. There are complexities of imperial stouts, barleywines and bourbon barrels at play here, and they play very nicely together.

Bottle from dcshiller, thanks dave! Sweet jesus this was good! Brown pour, brownish head. Sweet chocolate, figs, dates, prunes, dark brown sugar, sweet toffee...just wonderful. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle @ Ratman’s, courtesy of forgetfu. Thanks Bill! Pours a fairly cheat dark brown appearance with a very thin tan head. Mild whiskey, toffee, somewhat herbal, light veggie, chocolate aroma. Rich chocolate, coconut, german chocolate cake, vanilla, a touch fruity, caramel flavor. Flavor is very nice but the aroma leaves something to be desired. alexsdad06 (10434) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine. Pours a dark cola brown color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor has roasted malt, dark chocolate, barrel notes, caramel, some earthy bitterness and some booze. The only negative is the medium light body. I would like to see this a bit more full bodied. phaleslu (10271) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2013
22 oz. bottle shared by b3shine- thanks again, Beau! Bottle #146. First time I’ve had a FiftyFifty beer outside the Eclipse series. Pours a deep chestnut color with a beige ring for a head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, oak, dates, figs, and nice bourbon throughout. The flavor is the same, with toffee and chocolate, too. Like pralines. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sticky mouthfeel. Sweet malt and bourbon goodness. I enjoyed this.
