Bomber poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lasting tan head. Aromas of toffee, roasted malt, dried fruit and light bourbon. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of roasted malt, dried fruit, toffee, light bourbon and a hint of oak with a smooth dry lingering roasty dried fruit finish. jefcon (1884) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - MAY 21, 2017
A complex blend that all holds together. Smoky and slick elements of a barleywine, wine-like and delicate. Bitterness from a fresh IPA with the vanilla and chocolate of a stout. It all adds up in a beer which could easily have gotten way out of bounds. fiery_1 (1363) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
650ml @ the office. Pours dark brown with a thin frothy beige head. Nose is a fair amount of sweet malts with a hoppy note. Flavour is upfront sweet and malty, but then the hoppity hop hop punch kicks you right in the beer hole. It lingers on in the form of tons of bitterness. Wow, that’s bitter.

Bottle - Big toffee and lots of piney hops. Deep dark brown with a small small beige head. Big toffee and bitter hops with a long sweet bitter finish. A very big beer with a bit too much hops. Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 25, 2017
Medium brown, no head. Messy, light roast, and has some fairly intense dark fruits. Dark, bitter, chocolate, some barrel notes, a pretty big alcohol note, and the fruits are still fairly substantial. I would say it’s a fun mess. Lots of bitter hopping.

Catwoman was a bad idea to pursue .. Bark and chew and double IPA deadness .. Mild booze .. It’s a mess but Chex mix so.... joeneugs (6371) - Livermore, California, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Bottle thanks to Matt! It pours a dark brown color with some ruby highlights and a khaki head. The aroma has some nice floral hops and sweet soda-like sweetness. A little cocoa. The flavor is the same. Strong floral hops with sweet malt and hints of cocoa and soda. Medium to strong bitterness. A bit light bodied for such a big beer, but not too alcoholic. Pretty decent. dnstone (3430) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Pours black in color with a nice off white head. Roasty chocolate aroma. Roasty chocolate upfront followed by great hop character; starts like a stout and finishes like an IPA.
