Pours blck with a good sized dark brown head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts, raisons. Taste is bourbon, alchohol, chocolate, sweet malt, but not cloying. A bit too boozy.

2008 Vintage. Pours tight light tan head, about 1cm thick. Serious sludge in bottom of bottle. Guess thats from sitting in my beer fridge for a long time. Aroma has a wonderful bourbon quality to it unlike the "standard" Old Viscosity which has mostly aromas of malt. Flavor is also loaded with all sorts of bourbon goodness.Pronounced vanilla character. Perhaps a slight bubblegum character too? Very smooth tasting. Nice warm feeling after a few minutes.

Thanks to fordest for sharing. Bottle from OBriens. Very dark pour, no head, strong taste of oak and whiskey. Good warm burn in the aftertaste. Nicely done. And what a great night at Obriens.

mreusch (851) - Olathe, Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2008
375ml corked and caged bottle, courtesy of KAME, thanks Dillon! Pours a dark brown with only a splotch of large bubbles in the center that drift out around the rim, no lacing. Aroma is primarily bourbon and oak, with hints of vanilla and molasses that peek out. Flavor is bourbon forward, with some oak, charcoal and vanilla present. Its definitely a slow sipper, but enjoyable.

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 23, 2013
2013 vintage bottle. 12% ABV, really? No way, its boozy but I would not guess it. Big vanilla and oak nose. Maybe some brown sugar, chocolate, and a hint of coffee. Reminds me of an imperial stout. I was expecting a thicker velvety finish, a bit thin. Still an awesome beer.

On tap at the brewery. Dark pour similar to Angels Share. Tons of bourbon, vanilla, oak on the nose. Taste follows the nose with lots of vanilla, bourbon, and toasted malt. It tastes similar to a stout without any much of the coffee notes. I enjoyed this more than Deliverance and very close to regular Angels Share. Carbonation not a problem.

Ohh, super sweet like candy, decadent. Super smooth, rich, creamy, like an expresso ( the roastiness) yum!

stoutnick (839) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2014 2013 vintage from Jerrys, Chicago. Black, no head, motor oil pour. Big bourbon quality to aroma. Taste is bourbon, but though sweet not sickly on finish. As it warms the abv comes out far more clearly. Also the flavours are a touch medicinal which is off-putting. Finish is a mild bitter astringency and bourbon. Nice beer, better than the base product, but still a little dull sadly.

richlikebeer (838) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 16, 2009
Smells and looks like a SA triple bock bit is much better in terms of flavor and the smoothness. Lots of soy and chocolate and bourbon. 08 bottle so it actually had some carbonation instead of being flat.

Blom (837) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 2, 2010
Black with absolutely no head. Strong aromas of bourbon, alcohol, wood, dust, oil and vanilla. Flat and watery palate. Sweet malty flavours with notes of vanilla and wood. If you are into the bourbon-beer scene, then this is probably a great beer.
