Ive had this beer a bunch of different times, on draft and out of the bottle. Figured I might as well finally review this while its current on-tap at my house. Poured from the kegerator into a Bruery tulip. 2010 vintage. A - Pours black, mocha-colored head, thin film on top, spotty lace, thick collar. S - Big chocolate, both milk and dark, booze, vanilla, brownies, and oak. Still pretty boozy, even after a year and and half worth of age, but its definitely smoothed out since it was fresh. Very sweet, reminds me of a rich dessert. T - Chocolate syrup on top of chocolate brownies with a small side of bourbon. Theres a touch of oak and vanilla in there as well. The alcohol bite makes the finish bitter and boozy, yet still remaining somewhat sweet. M - Full, rich and smooth, good carbonation, creamy finish. Even after almost two years, this one is still quite boozy. That said, its really smoothed out since I had it fresh, and its definitely more enjoyable now then ever. I think another year will do this some more good...might be perfect by then!

Sampled at an esbls tasting. Very dark brown with a small tan head. The barrel brings so much aroma. Red wine and wood notes. Beginning is so smooth. Hot but somehow it is ok. This could sneak up on a guy. Flavor is more subtle than expected but is still really nice. A wow.

Crushed with TheRon and HeyZues. Pours a dark brown/black. Bourbon, wood, and some cardboard on the nose. Flavor is some bourbon, a bit of soy sauce, and cardboard. Oxidized as hell. Want to try fresh.

Je la verse: Beaucoup deffervescence comparativement la Angel share (yen avait pas du tout). Belle robe bourgogne surmont dun douillet collet. Je la respire: Vanille, brandy, marmelade et beaucoup de notes boiss. Je la bois: Bien onctueux, assez collant avec le chocolat qui sajoute ce que le nez amenait. Belle offrande.

Cybercat (5556) - Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2012
Pours a deep sable a scratch above black with a thick, if not persistent, tan head. Malty aroma has a strong overtone of bourbon-soaked wood and hints of toffee and chocolate. Distinctive flavor has malty, bourbon, woody, molasses, coffee, fruity - how many notes are there? I seem to get different ones with each sip! And whoa, what an alcohol bite, like a liquid pit bull that has decided your tongue is a juicy steak! Texture has firm body and plenty of fizz and sass, and the tingle it leaves behind decided to sit for a spell. This beer is worth going through hell, high water, airport security and over-affectionate great aunts to get.

From bottle to tulip. Pours a dark brown with the a hint of red shining through the edges with a large mocha head. Smells of oak, bourbon, chocolate, soy sauce, and alcohol. Tastes of sour dark fruit, dark chocolate, and bourbon with a nice alcohol burn. Good carbonation, more than I expected but it helps with the alcohol. Overall I was pleasantly surprised with this one, starts with the sour fruit and finishes with a chocolatey alcohol burn. Very nice.

maekchu (3760) - Hirakata, JAPAN - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Sweet fumes rise into the nose -- barrel notes, bourbon. Dark, opaque brown. Rich dark fruit flavors and a smooth satisfying aftertaste. Full bodied, warming, and rich. The barrel flavors predominate in a good way, accentuating the beer nose and taste -- and not overwhelming them. Great!

sonnycheeba (5841) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep, dark brown with a trace of beige head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is plums, figs, roasted malt, booze, molasses, and faint floral hops. Flavor is balanced malt and dark fruit esters with booze undertones throughout; dry, semi-sweet finish. Medium body and carbonation with high warmth.
