Draft at Daily Growler, UA: blackish pour, tan head. aroma of chocolate, dark fruit, boozy. tastes are roasted malts, chocolate, moderate sweetness, vanilla, bourbon. ok, think I like the base better. katrinaez (2306) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2017
Pours jet black. Strong boozy aroma. Bourbon taste is overdone. Very thick mouthfeel and nice enough taste but bourbon overpowers every other taste in the beer. Tap. xblanchard29x (112) - Alabama, USA - AUG 12, 2016
On tap at flappers. Dark black with dark brown head. Chocolate, toffee, malt. JaBier (8307) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2016
2014 sample at The Brew Kettle on 2/28/16. Pours darkest brown with a thin tan head. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate and sweet malt. Malty and chocolatey flavor with a nice bourbon character before a sweet chocolate finish. Daytonbeer (730) - Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Pours near black with small tan head and no lacing. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, and booze. Taste is the same with delicious dark malts. Smooth and tasteful! Very nice.

Taster at Jungle Jim’s Barrel-Aged Beer Bash 2015. Black color. Thin tan head, kind of bubbly. Good dots of lace. One of the better-looking beers I’ve had at this event thus far. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Light chewiness. Sort of slick. Moderate roast malt, coffee, touch of coconut, and bit of vanilla in the flavor, mild spiciness. Moderate sweet taste, moderate to bigger bitterness, and a bit of booziness on the back end. Tasty stuff, but a bit of a bite to it... Barrel character is not as well-integrated as it could be. outlawskies (564) - Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Julie feels the burbon barrel age adds character nice flavor not over powering. She gives a 4.5

Tap sample. Poured black color with an average frothy brown head that mostly lasted and good lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet bourbon, chocolate and vanilla wood aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted dark sweet bourbon flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a standout brew. pottygok (548) - Ohio, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Aroma: Coffee and chocolate aromas, nice and rich. Sammy (12837) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 23, 2012
Appearance: Black with minimal head
Palate: Medium sweetness backed by a light bitterness. A bit overwhelming.
Taste: Full body, rich oily texture, minimal carbonation, long finish.
Overall: Very rich. The bourbon is readily apparent. It’s solid, but overwhelming at points.
complex, a reddish brown appearance and lacy. Big bitter. Coconut from the barrel,. An IPA 60 level of hoppiness. Interesting characteristics that do not come together to offer good drinkability. Good aroma.
A little disappointed.
