On tap at Kickbacks. This had zero carbonation. Tons of Vanilla, Coffee, Oats, very viscous. I was actually disappointed in this one - way too much sweetness and one of the balance that the regular W n’ B has. GT (10017) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Tap at Kickbacks for RBWG JAX. Pours a inky black with low carbonation. Mocha ring of foam. Nose is Hersey milk chocolate, black olive, licorice, black crayon. Taste is odd- cedar, licorice, parsnip, ginger, peppermint. Palate was weak, thinner, very woody. Long, tannic wood finish. Was a bit baffling to our table. stevencon (525) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 27, 2013 Rbwg at kickbacks. DSR black pour tan head in a small snifter. Aroma I’d cinnamon and chocolate. Taste same only better and very enjoyable. I live cinnamon spice. Leighton (22821) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Keg at Kickbacks, RBWG. Pours thick black with no head, some kind of dark berries in the nose, perhaps licorice. Big sweet flavor, dark malts, chocolate-covered orange. Full bodied and pretty much flat. Sticky sweet finish, lightly warming, dark berries, syrupy sugars. Interesting. thedm (6320) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 21, 2013
This draft brew from a restaurant poured a very small sized head of frothy brown colored bubbles that were and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque black colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a medium aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of spices dark malt and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

Kind of a disappointment, honestly, with the cinnamon being a bit too pronounced and the barrel elements outweighing the coffee that makes the original W-n-B a pretty good, if not great beer. Not bad, easy enough to drink, but just nothing super special. jbruner (5466) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2013
Pours an opaque black on tap with thin tan head and good lacing. Aroma of whiskey, coffee, chocolate, and slight vanilla. Taste follows, boozy with a bitter sweet finish. Great damn version of the beer. Sammy (13000) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 18, 2013
Big flavoured stout, but also boozy. On tap at Kickbacks. Woody character. A sipper. Black with little head. Sikash (274) - North Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2012
Draft only at kickbacks in Jacksonville. Pours a great jet black color with minimal head. Aroma is nice of chocolate, coffee, vanilla, molasses and bourbon. Mouthfeel is silky smooth. There are notes of coffee, chocolate, bourbon, oak and maybe some dark fruit. Finishes with a nice smooth bitterness that doesn?t last too long. There is minimal carbonation but it works amazingly well. This is a great beer that I hope to have again! kbutler1 (1382) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Draft. Only Steve could have such a concoction on tap at Kickbacks. Pours a dark brown/black color with a minimal tan collared head ringing the glass. Dark chocolate, roast, molassess, vanilla, and barrel notes in the nose. Medium/heavy mouthfeel. Smooth is the first word that comes to mind, smooth and sexy. Very tasty, the flavors seem to be very well incorporated. The bouron is there but not overpowering. Bottle this.
