Big bourbon with lots of vanilla, also almost a cigar hint in there. Pours dark with a ruby edge and light head. Taste big sweet and medium bitter. Big alcohol burn. Wow!

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - SEP 26, 2012
22oz bottle (2011, #3304) from deftim13, thanks man. Clear dark brown with a small fizzy tan head that quickly fades down to a ring. Aroma is black malt, fruity bourbon, chocolate, caramel and oak. Flavor is hot bourbon and alcohol up front, dark roasted coffee and bitter-sweet chocolate. Medium to full body with prickly carbonation. This one is loaded with bourbon, but I like that. Really nice beer.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Very smooth. Pours a black color. Medium aroma. Quite viscous. Not quite as spicy as the Four Roses but a touch better than the Rittenhouse. Well balanced. Not hot at all.

Bottle at Home from Saveur-Biere.com - Color: dark black beer with no carbonation and small brown head. Smell: coffee domination, caramel and bourbon barrel aged. Really amazing complexity. Need to taste it!!!! Taste: as the same on nose, this beer is amazing. Good coffee taste and roasted malt. Caramel complexity and bourbon barrel aged complexity. Very amazing palate. This beer is a MUST to try. Aftertaste: good bitterness and very well equilibrium. Coffee caramel and bourbon barrel aged finish. One of the best I try !!!

bulldogops (2323) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 2, 2016
Rating #1605 - 14.04.2015 - Easter Dinner nightcap. Pours an opaque black beauty with a rich tan foam. Aroma is heavy roast malt, espresso, molasses, oak. Taste is heavy on roast malt and coffee flavours, lots of burnt sugar, toffee, bourbon vanilla, blackstrap molasses. A beauteous beer that hits on all of my favourite things. #5whore

bomber shared. poured almost black with off white head. thick and rich and full flavored. deep dark roasted malts, chocolate possibly some coffee and hints of licorice. the flavor in this full bodied beer is so damn good..the bourbon barrel mixed with chocolate dark malts and licorice on the back end was absolutely exquisite. thanks todd

McNeillR (2264) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 17, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 Darkest brown and border of ruby highlight. Big fading tan swirlable head. Sweet marshmallow vanilla bourbon. Neat initial gleam of booze but an exhaust fumed wood and naturally creamy rise. Soft and almost cooling milky. Finish is a sweet soy and light bourbon burn. It hides a colourful barrel incredibly well, not busy or escalator layered. Just tremendous. Thanks Paul for the bottle, via a bloody beer club. Merica.

craftbeerdesign (2254) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2013
this beer is worth the price... simply amazing. pours nice and black with a firm tan head - that lasts throughout. layered vanilla, bourbon, light coffee and chocolate nose - they all blend so well together - nothing dominating - very well blended aromas. full body with smooth chocolate malts, silky vanilla and bourbon notes with a lingering bitterness. roasted finish with more bourbon and vanilla peaking in flavor. a lot of bourbon barrel aged stouts are way too boozy and heavy - this beer is so inviting and soothing - nothing forced - simple perfection.

Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Elijah Craig version shared by Daknole at the Black Friday tasting. Pours near black with a thin tan head. The nose is oaky vanilla, milk chocolate and bourbon. The taste is ahy cocoa, sweet bourbon, dark chocolate, coffee and some alcohol in the finish. Medium semi-creamy mouthfeel. Very good. Thanks Dak!
