Dark beer with a short foamy brown head. Nice warming nose of bourbon and dried fruit. This is a great example of using a barrel to enhance a beer. Buttery bourbon alcohol, rich vanilla, molasses sweetness and some dark toast. Very smooth and easy to drink. JK (6162) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - FEB 8, 2015
Thanks to Brian for sharing this one. Initial aroma of alcohol, which is also on the palate. Heavily roasted grain, and bourbon dominates any other flavors that might have been there. Travlr (24880) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 24, 2014
Bottle. Very dark brown color, almost black. Aroma of prunes, raisins, dates, dark chocolate. Taste has rich chocolate, dark fruit. Tasty. thomashall (994) - New Hope, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle shared by Bvery...thanks! Pours jet black with minimal head. Strong bourbon aroma. Tastes a little boozy wit a little wood character. Good beer. Bacterial (2999) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2014

Black, small tan head. Big bourbon aroma. Thick, chocolatey, lots of bourbon. Very nice beer. BVery (10510) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Bomber from Andrew - thanks! Deep dense dark pour with a beige head. Roasty, wood, bourbon, ashy. Wonderful. Full dense palate. Love this. mabel (9246) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
[6135-20140121] Bottle. Roasty dark fruit aroma hints at a bandaid background. Black body with a quick foamy tan head. Roasted fruity bourbon flavour has a bit of a sweet finish. Full body. Nice balance overall but just a little too much bourbon for my preference. (7/4/7/4/16) 3.8

Hmmm, i dont know why i dont have a rate for this, i remember getting a bottle from northropfrye so...sorry and thank you! Love this stuff. Oily black, with a coffee and oak nose. Taste is licorice, coffee, vanilla, bourbon although the age seems to have mellowed it a bit. Fantastic. douglas88 (9192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bomber. Pours a pure black color with a small beige head. A big sweet whiskey barrel nose. The flavor is vanilla, hot whiskey, oak, chocolate, dark fruit. Very damn good.
