On tap. Pours black with almost no head. Aromas of sweet creamed coffee, molasses, a bit of green oak, and sweet roasted malts. Rich sweet flavors of same with a touch of coconut and soy. Hot finish but still really nice. solidfunk (9787) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Roast, some booze. Definitely some mash malt. Definitely a little Kentucky in this. Pours syrupy. Black with ok head. Tangy and bitter finish. Tap at Savor. jandd1983 (4720) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - APR 24, 2017
Bottle. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of dark grains, roasted malts, chocolate, bourbon and dark fruits. The taste was similar to the aroma with more dark grains, roasted malts, chocolate, bourbon, dark fruits and booze. Wow, very tasty. Msdrbeat (785) - East Lansing, USA - MAR 31, 2017
Bottled. Tan head on black beer. So smooth and lots of booze. Still chocolate. Wow. JaBier (8445) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle shared by a friend. Clear reddish brown pour with a medium tan head. Nose of malt, caramel, bourbon and chocolate. Malty flavor with bourbon and caramel accents before a warm finish.

Dark brown with a tan head. Aroma is warm and bourbony, with vanilla notes. Taste is rich and sweet, with tons of bourbon flavor, but not as overly boozy as it could be at 17%. $6/12oz

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2017 This is a good BBA beer. It’s syrupy and has good complexity. It’s boozy, but there is more to the beer than just booze which makes it worth having. Booga (114) - Michigan, USA - JAN 22, 2017
2017 variant clocking in at 17%. Aroma of booze that doesn’t last long. Thicker than normal DM but still a bit thin. Really sweet on the front end but in a good way. Nice boozy barrel flavor. Really drinkable for such a high ABV. Pretty good beer from New Holland. tmoreau (4805) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2016
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., viscously dispensed to a snifter displaying a black/brown hue with some amber highlighting noticed toward the stem, a modest layer of tan froth that quickly reduced to a thin ring & light film, and some ribbons & spots to the lacing. After adequate warming, the nose was roasted, cocoa, sweetness, light spice, subtle dark fruit as raisin, and maltiness that expressed hints of woodiness, and a touch of freezer burn. Full bodied, with soft carbonation, the taste was similar notes, caramel, brown sugar, & toffee sweetness, a thick, syrupy texture, noticeable but mellowed notes of roasted, earthy, and slightly tannic bitterness, and bourbony alcohol presence. Big, dessert-like, but would have appreciated just a little less sweetness. Mark_Eck (1998) - - AUG 3, 2016
