Stout-dark pour with a thick caramel-colored head. It has the usual coffee and chocolate notes with a nice bitter kick at the end that seems more chocolate than coffee or hops.

Une bouteille partage. Une robe brune avec une mousse aussi brun. Un nez de tire ponge (celle qui colle au dents). Une bouche puissante dalcool. Simple et sans envergure. Elle manque de corps. La finale est astringente et ninvite aucunement reprendre une autre gorge.

Merveilleuse mousse brune sur cette robe qui pourrait bien tre noire. Je nai pas fait trs attention la dentelle. ce stade-ci, je peux voir quelques traces parpilles. Dentre de jeu, les malts se cachent derrire un ft de bourbon bien bois et des houblons qui me semblent perdre de longs parfums herbacs. La premire gorge nimpressionne pas mes papilles. La seconde et les suivantes placent des saveurs chocolates et fruites la remorque dun alcool malhabilement aromatis aux herbes piquantes. En bouche, le liquide a un corps de moyenne densit avec un ptillement actif et une texture crmeuse. La finale chaude est chocolate, amre, astringente, pique et plus ou moins agrable. Vieille bouteille ou simplement pas fait pour moi?

Thanks to Lee for the bottle. Thick black pour. Roasted malt, chocolate, hint of soy sauce in aroma. Big thick malt body with lots of chocolate and roasted barley. Very good.

Bottle: Thanks, Tyler. Black, with only some dark brown at the very top, capped with a lightly frothy layer of mocha cream. Aroma is... unexpected. Musty oak, tart notes of cherry & grape skin with only a mild, hard to find hint of roast behind it all. Smells like it might be infected. Oddly enough, no sign of infection or "tartness" in the flavor at all. Decadent, dark chocolate & fudge, roasted malts, wood, very tame bourbon, dry cocoa powder, & a lightly tannic finish. Small reminders of maple come out with warmth. Literally none of the tart fruit character is present in the flavor. Smooth, pretty creamy body. Very strange how the aroma & flavor are so mismatched... Smelled like it might be infected, tasted very good actually. How is this possible? With the better nose, this would be a very, very good beer.

mbgrayson (759) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - APR 5, 2014
Pours jet black, with ample tannish brown head. Aroma is malt with bourbon, beautiful. Taste is heavily of stout and bourbon. Smooth, drinkable, complex, and well blended. Thumbs way up. This one is good.

Pitch black with a thin filmy brown head; Good lacing. Aroma of chocolate malts, vanilla, oak, caramel and bourbon. Flavors of vanilla, oak, chocolate malts, roasted barley with a roasty & bitter hop aftertaste. Heavy body with some mild carbonation. Quite tasty!

kidmartinek (4999) - austin, Texas, USA - MAR 27, 2014
Pours thin black with faint head and lace. Runny in the glass. Holy cow, tastes like a lot of vanilla and chocolate with a good bitter finish. Not a bad dessert.

Rich chocolate aroma with a hint of the bourbon barrel. Pours thick black with a tan head. Smooth flavors, long bourbon finish.
