Aromas of dark chocolate, toffee, raisins, plums, figs, dark fruits, cherries, aged malts, oak, and barrel wood. Pours black with a very thin foam and intense alcohol legs. Taste brings harsh charred malts, campfire ash, dark bitter chocolate, cacao nibs, aged dark malts, oak, maple syrup, slick malt syrup, slick molasses, caramel, nougat and leather. Finishes intensely boozy with massive bourbon and oak. Overall, a very complex and dark with tons of flavors. Very heavy on the booze.

Dr_MedievAle (214) - Alabama, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Smells of malted milk balls (Whoppers) and slightly of sour milk. Tastes like it smells. Mouthfeel is thin to oily with a medium body. Maybe this bottle went bad or was somehow infected, because Id heard praise of this beer that does not comport with my experience.
