jtclockwork (16602) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle #77 of 336 thanks to a great trader. Pours darkest brown with tan head. Nose/taste of mint leaves, nuts, chocolate, roast malt and soured oak. Some brandy notes. Medium body.

2.9
brokensail (16449) - Dublin, California, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Pours dark brown in color with small tan head. Booze is definitely a prominent aroma. A strong note of stale hops followed by cocoa, oak, and a mild fruitiness (mostly prunes). The flavor is a touch metallic followed by some mild bourbon, roast, and cocoa. A touch acidic, for some reason, with a little bit of dark fruit. Not a fan of this one at all.

4.2
bhensonb (15250) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 12, 2012
Bomber from ericandersnavy. Pours brown/black with a creamy tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak. Full bodied. Flavor is lightly sour, vinous, bourbon, dark fruit, coffee and chocolate and oak astringency. Very nice. Very complex.

3.5
djd07 (14632) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2015
Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a very dark brown with medium beige head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is black licorice and hickory. Medium mouth, chocolate malt, plums, wood, booze, very good.

3.9
Tmoney99 (14501) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured dark brown with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate malt, wood with a complex alcohol aroma. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Heavy bourbon, woody and malt sweet flavor with a heavy sweet finish of long duration. This is a solid complex beer.

3.8
Dogbrick (13035) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 28, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. This blend pours a murky brownish-black color with a thin beige head that diminishes quickly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. The aroma consists of malt and chocolate with bourbon in the background. Full-bodied with flavors of dark chocolate, malt, bourbon and a bit of butterscotch or toffee. The finish is roasty with a dark malty aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.8
hopscotch (11113) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Bottle... Pours black with a burnt-orange sparkle around the edges. No head. The fruity, deeply-roasted bouquet is a blend of dark chocolate, blueberries and blackberries. Medium-bodied with prickly carbonation. The flavor presents rich caramel, espresso and dark chocolate flanked by a whisper of tangy blackberries. Malty, vinous, caramel and toffee finish. Bottle shared by darkguardian!

Bomber - thanks Doug. Dark cola pour with a small spotty head. Licorice, mild dark fruit, some wood, and brandy. Medium smooth palate.

3.8
alexsdad06 (10436) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - APR 1, 2013
Draft at Jackie O’s. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. The aroma had a dark fruitiness, brandy barrel, wood, and hints of roast and chocolate. The flavor had a nice blend of the two beers with the BB Superfly slightly at the forefront. Mild roast and chocolate with dark fruits, wood and brandy. Smooth finish. Out of the bottle recently this had some tart character, but I still found this to be very interesting.
