Bottle @ Deans Bomb Shelter Tasting, thnx to the crew for sharing! Pours a pitch black beer with a thin tanned head on top. Aroma of soy sauces, molasses, slight chocolate and some faint ground coffee in the back. Flavor is sweet, big influence of the syrup in there, Has a faint herbal note in the very back. Soft carbonation, long bittersweet aftertaste. Nice, but Ive expected way more to be honest.

Bottle shared at Kermis b-day bottleshare, thanks to Jeroen. First batch. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma is minty, chocolate, coffee, mocha, caramel. Taste is rather sweet. Full bodied with mild carbonation. Great, but the mint was a bit weird.

Tap at Aurora Brew Works Founders takeover. Poured a jet black color with small sudsy off white head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and bourbon hit the nose. Flavor was coffee, chocolate, woody, bourbon, slight sweet maple. Little more mellow and smooth than KBS, which was also on tap. Full body, oily texture, average carbonation, a slight bitter and bourbon burn finish to it. Nice beer that Im glad to finally tick off.

On tap at 2015 GTMW, Ive been chasing this one ever since I started to get into beer, waited for about 25 minutes in line to try it, and I probably could of tried others at the fest that I was more impressed with, pours black with a very thin light brown head, the aroma has a slight amount of vanilla with a good amount of roast and chocolate, the flavor has a decent amount of chocolate and roast, the maple doesnt really show as much as I was hoping it would, mouthfeel is a bit thin, so this stuff is good, but not mind blowing good. If this was blind up against other unknown BA beers I think this would be in the middle. Glad I finally got to try this, but somewhat let down by it.

Much better on tap than from the bottle. I dont know for certain how much of it is an actual change in the beer and how much is a palate shift due to more intense beers being continuously available, but this doesnt have the same magic it once did after having the likes of Mornin Delight. Still a great beer; try adding a little BLiS syrup to thicken the mouthfeel; its fantastic!
