Bottle @ Dan’s house, courtesy of foppa78. Pours a deep black appearance with a nice, thick brown head. Rich dark chocolate, dark caramel, burnt woody, a bit charred, light candy aroma. A little boozy, dark grape, whiskey, somewhat boozy, dark chocolate, a touch tart fruity, roasty flavor. Pretty tasty but not elite. Jayhawkbbfan (2) - - SEP 16, 2012 does not count
Nebraska Brewing Company’s Black Betty is a wonderful Imperial Stout. Definitely on my top ten list of favorites. Has a small bite, but generally smooth. Tmoney99 (15120) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown with a large frothy brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt, wood and sour dark tobacco aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium toasted malt sweet & sour flavor with a medium s sour & sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer did not meet my expectations.

Bottle to snifter (thanks tmoney99). Looks fine; a little thin though. Smells okay; nothing special though. Tastes infected. Not the best on the palate either. I think it’s infected, so I’d give it another chance, but this doesn’t impress me. Rando7 (787) - Iowa, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Black Betty was a beer, bam-a-lam, that poured almost black with a medium chocolat milk head, bam-a-lam. OK I’ll quit but one hazard of drinking this is you’ll have the song stuck in your head. Aroma sweet malts with noticeable hops. Taste initially sweet with whiskey, malts and slight chocolate, then slight roast and oak. Finish mild but prolonged hops. palate medium, could be a bit more full.

Pretty good with nice flavor but balance could be a little better. The hops were by no means strong but seemed to over shadow the malt profile.
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours an oily black with a small tan head. No lacing left about. Nose promises loads of chocolate with a hint of whisky and loads of vanilla. Although sweet, it balances out nicely. Heaps of vanilla in the taste with the whisky and chocolate tones cutting through. Cuts short with a hint of bitterness. Short and thin palate. Nice beer, the palate lets it down a little though Sikash (274) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Poured from a bottle into a tulip glass. Pours a pitch black color with a light tan head that leaves great lacing. Has a great roasted malt aroma with chocolate and fruity undertones with coffee mixed in as well. The bourbon/oak aroma is nice well balanced. Sweet initial taste of chocolate, coffee and fruit with a nice smooth bitter backend of bourbon and oak. The alcohol is smooth and barely noticeable. The Mouthfeel is heavy but not too much so.

Bottle. Pours a perfect black witha nose of whiskey, oak, and wood. Flavor is chocoalte whiskey caramel aged in oak with a light marshmallow and Kahluah finish. Thick on the tongue. Great beer. alexsdad06 (11223) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - MAY 28, 2012
750 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown black color with a medium plus sized beige head. The aroma had roasted malts, bourbon, wood, cherry notes and noticeable signs of infection; tart/sour notes. The flavor again has roasted malts, bourbon, cherry and wood, but this is interrupted by the tart/sour character; the flavor was not all that bad all things considered. If this was marketed as a soured ba stout (like Tart of Darkness) than I would like this more. Rrauth (1196) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bomber. Black as night. Chocolate aroma with some bourbon. Tastes bourbon no chocolate. Little head from the aging. Nice and smooth to start the beer brew session off.
