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.

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.

I liked this one, thanks for sharing OmegaX. The pour was thick and black with little signs of carbonation. I smelled mainly coconut and molasses with some raisins, toffee and chocolate in the mix. The taste was full of molasses and more raisins with a silky chocolate finish. Undertones of cherries, toffee and cocoa were more present as it warmed up.

Tasting at Bruce’s pad. Opaque dark brown beer, big tan head. Softish palate, a little dry. Fine carbonation. Not getting a huge amount of difference from the regular Bart! Perhaps a little more spicy. So very nice again!
