tmoreau (4020) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2017
One of Revs bonus beers at Chicago Beer Societys 19th Annual Brewpub & Microbrewery Shootout, viscously dispensed to my fest glass displaying a black/brown hue with a modest but persistent layer of brownish tan foam, a syrupy coating, and spots of lacing. With noticeable bourbon throughout, the aroma & taste were similarly & expressively roasted, cocoa, sweetness, vanilla, with espresso on the edge. Full bodied, with low carbonation, and sticky texture, with boozy warmth that lingered to finish. Maybe a bit on the sweet side, but big & robust.

crossovert (12002) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2015
Draft. This beer is ridiculously boozy, port wine with some milk chocolate thrown into it, too boozy and tart for my liking.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - DEC 6, 2014
Tap: Black & sludgy with the thinnest, dark brown slivers shining through at the edges of the glass. Bubbly tan collar on top. Aroma is great. Rich fudge, chocolate cake with more chocolate drizzle, edging on that brownie batter sweet creaminess with hints of lovely vanilla, wood, & roasty char from both the heavy malt & the barrel. This smells THICK. Tastes thick, too. Kim K thickness. Tons of brled sugar up front with an underlying forest that Willy Wonka would nut over. Dense, dark fudge, Devils Food Cake mix, hints of anise, burnt caramel coated brownies... The crispy ones at the edge of the pan. Vanilla. Charred nuts. Spicy oak. Finish includes enigmatic notes of almond cream, almost like marzipan & Amaretto. A little hot near the finish but goddamn this is great.

Pailhead (6539) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 15, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of big chocolate zmolasses, light caramel, vanilla, coffee, and bourbon. Its a dark brown, virtually black, with a small tan head that quickly fades to a soapy ring around. The flavor starts with moderate milk chocolate, lighter molasses, and caramel. The finish has light-moderate coffee/espresso, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and a little booze heat. Its medium-full bodied with mild carbonation.

Bacterial (2931) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On tap at the GTMW 2014. Dark brown pour with a slight head. Big bourbon nose. Big, boozy, just a bit sweet and very yummy.

CanIHave4Beers (4160) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - NOV 27, 2013
2011 draught at the brewery.
Pours basically black with a small head.

The aroma is toffee and sweet/roasty malt. Its got a nice big of vanilla and a well restrained booziness for as huge as it is. There is some nice nutty character to it too... pretty neate.

The flavor is nice, it comes in right away with some bitter chocolate but has some good sweetness to it too. Plenty of bourbon character here, plenty of vanilla, plenty of cherry liqueur goodness. Some maple shows up as the beer warms.

Big old syrupy mouthfeel

Geeze, u must be jokin if u think this is a shelf beer.

Draft at Rev. Had a couple of these and paid the price for it later. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate, caramel, and a touch of wood. Great flavor, well balanced and nicely done.
