Black coffee color with a decent tan colored head. Aroma is sweet chocolate with coconut and caramel. A sweet chocolate cake flavor with caramel, coconut, and vanilla rounding it out...a touch of booziness. Overall a delicious desert, even at 6 am.

Deep black hue under a thin dark beige cap. Big sticky dark black malt nose with bourbonny brown sugar, oak, caramel, coconut and a light bit of coffee in there. Big sticky flavor thats got dark sweet malts, cocoa, coffee, brown sugar, coconut, oak, vanilla, and a slightly smokey black malt finish with more coffee and more bourbon. Amazing.

Surprised I liked this. Didnt realize it was Red Fox base, or I probably would have passed. Anyway, much bigger body. Bourbon and vanilla heavy, warming and slightly boozy. Chocolate and roast and light bitterness. Not bad.

Nocturne (1951) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2016
650ml bottle. Black with dark brown foam. Aroma of bourbon, oak and chocolate brownie. Taste starts off sweet and chocolatey, then takes on elements of the barrel ageing. Not massively complex but a solidly done BA RIS.

Padron4KM (809) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - MAR 11, 2016
22 oz bottle, into a 25cl goblet, and a snifter. Inky black. Thin tan head that dissipates rapidly, and leaves very little lace.
Aroma is big on the prune, some fig and date notes as well, wet oak, char, chocolate, vanilla.
Flavor is sweet, prune juice, vanilla, smoke, char, sweetened coffee, chocolate, booze.

First impressions are very positive. The pour is very dark with a slight tan head which doesn't last long. The aroma is slight sweet with hints of chocolate and vanilla. The taste is slightly sweet with a oak barrel/alcohol taste. Overall, not a bad beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle; I havent had the base beer - This one pours murky brown , with amber highlights. Theres a modest khaki head that retains poorly in this glass. Very light spotting presence here. The nose is chocolate cake, roasty and caramel notes, with feint alcohol presence. The flavor profile is a touch thin out of the gate - its on the sweeter side - vanilla notes come through with brown sugars and caramel - its rounded out by a roasty note with light barrel treatment. Its a nice drinker - but not overly remarkable, either.
