faroeviking (10484) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 5, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice deep dark brown colour. Sweet roasty, chocolate, wood, vanilla aroma. God mouthfeel. The flavour has caramel, soft roasted maltiness, chocolate, dark fruits, wood, hops and alcohol. Sweet hoppy and mildy roasted long lasting finish. A great brew indeed.

Charlzm (246) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Bottled, consumed on 11/3/07. Very dark brown pour generates a long-lasting tan head of fine bubbles. Looks and smells like a stout. Very silky, warming mouthfeel: a touch of alcohol burn, due perhaps to the bourbon barrel aging. Flavors of mocha, tobacco and a hint of cherries (maybe?), as well as bourbon. Didnt note any hops on the palate. A little one-note on the flavor, but a great flavor it is! Quite active and tingly as it goes down and warming in the stomach. A big beer that tastes great!

Poured a very dark brown with a toffee head. Nice caramel and mocha aroma, with a beautiful vanilla undertone. Flavor is of tobacco, bourbon, and mocha notes. Really nice.

mystiksc (62) - los angeles, California, USA - NOV 3, 2007
Very dark motor oil pour. Burnt coffee and caramel flavors. Decent lace. Amazing balance. Alcohol is detectable. This 22oz bomber kicks hard after finishing it.

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Dark, opaque, yet not overly syrupy blackness, small dark foam cap. Wonderfully rich nose, all the dark boozy epithets apply, nutty, plums, apple, oak, "whiskey", "rummy", etc. Nice austere palate, enough malt for balance....tar. Airport runway. Intense but pretty drinkable near(imperial)-stout!

lordeche (479) - Quincy, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 23, 2007
Pours beautiful dark plum color with medium tan head. Amazing aroma: chocolate, coffee, dark fruit, port wine, caramel. Great complex flavors all peaking through. The chocolate is complemented by great hop bitterness, roasted malts, and subtle raisin and plum. Palate is smooth with a slightly dry finish. Really fantastic beer.
