Tap at Flix. Walt is a moron.
Pours a deep black with a nose of bourbon, oak, cocoa caramel, and whiskey. Flavor is weak pipe tobacco and light/dark chocolate. Average mouthfeel. Not bad but should be better. Walt sucks.

(Draught) Pours an opaque black body with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, wood, and vanilla. Flavor of bourbon, cola, roasted malt, vanilla bean, wood, cocoa, and some dark fruit with a dry finish.

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 28, 2012
On tap during the 2012 RateBeer Winter Gathering. The beer pours a pitch black color with a dark brown head. The aroma is a mix of oak and charred malt notes, with a little bit of roasted malt also mixed in. The flavor is a little bit different. I initially get a lot of alcohol and bourbon notes, but then the oak and burnt malt notes come in. There is also a bit of chocolate in the flavor as the beer warms, but the dominant flavors are the alcohol and burnt notes. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours black with a medium sized tan head and some lacing
Roasted malts, dark roast coffee, rich coffee, vanilla and woody throughout. A very nice RIS.

decaturstevo (6138) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Black pour with frothy dark tan head and lace. Aroma is burnt coffee, chocolate, and toasted malt. Flavor mirrors aroma with a good malt bitter and some hops bitter. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Pretty nice.

First to rate! On tap for RBWG 2012! Opaque black pour with a small tan head that fades and laces a bit. Aroma of chocolate, rich, dark roast, a bit of tannic wood, and a touch of sourness, maybe from the bourbon/wood, but maybe from the dark malts. Slightly sweet entry of chocolate with a touch of sourness that fades to big, roasty, dry finish that lingers roasty and coffee-like with a bit of lingering bourbon, but really not much.
