Poured draught from BFD Clubhouse. Big chocolate and vanilla flavor. Alcohol masked pretty well. Very solid beer, I was presently surprised.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2016 Superlative. On cask at Barcade. Pour, slightly ruby stout like an oil slick, barrel aging adds layers of complexity, Also sampled bottles from 2015 and 2016. Cask offering far superlative to bottled offering. Luvystypotables (1917) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - FEB 8, 2015

Draft at heavy seas brewpub in Rosslyn. Black w thin head. Syrupy vinous chocolate aroma w sweet current and bourbon vanilla notes. Similar taste. Slick oily mouthfeel w distinct alcohol. Notable chocolate on the front but not overpowering. Well constructed beer but can't have too many!

Pours a dark brown to black colour with a toffee colour head. Aroma is of chocolate, coffee malt, vanilla, and bourbon. Flavor is roasted malts, a bit of chocolate and caramel and a nice blend of alcohol and sweet vanilla. Medium bodied with light carbonation and a sweet finish. digrod (138) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Draft from the source. Pours nearly pitch black with medium head and soapy lacing. Aromas of bourbon, bakers chocolate, and vanilla beans. Flavors are the same with the most luxurious dark chocolate truffle amidst some pecan and a dash of spice from the bourbon. The epitome of a desert beer. Astonishing.

Draft at 80/20 burger bar. Pours a deep brown color with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is light, sweet chocolate milk, touch of roasted malts. Flavor is much more pleasant, big chocolate, vanilla, milk. Not much bourbon, but still a delicious beer!
