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! rdixon77 (2944) - Georgia, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Excellent, boozy stout. Poured black with a ring of dark brown head. Big aroma of dark chocolate, burnt sugar, and coffee. Taste was complex with equal amounts of chocolate, vanilla, cinnamon, roasted malts and coffee with a pleasing and long lasting bourbon and coffee aftertaste. The coffee was high quality and really blended well. Best use of bourbon and coffee in a beer that I’ve tasted. Very smooth, almost no carbonation, but I think that worked well. Wonderful stuff, lucky to have tried. drowland (8932) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2012
First to rate! On tap at Kickbacks! Dark black pour with a small brown head. Rich aroma with tons of complexity. There’s coffee and dark chocolate on top of lots of vanilla, coconut, cinnamon, fudge, and plenty of bourbon. Rich flavor deliciously paralleling all of the above. Awesome! kbutler1 (1381) - 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. hopscotch (11180) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Draft... RBWG 2013... This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, off-white head. The aroma is a decadent swirl of dark chocolate, fudge and cinnamon. I’m not picking up any bourbon barrel or vanilla here. Full-bodied with an oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is burnt, bitter and a little boozy – smooth though - no rough edges. Nice essences of cinnamon, dark chocolate and smoke. Acrid, singed, coffee finish with a pinch of cinnamon in the enjoyable aftertaste. World class base beer and a solid treatment!

Tap at Kickbacks during RBWG. Pours a very dark brown with beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is coffee roast snd spice. Strong roast and coffee, vanilla, nice boozy finish, really enjoyed this. Luvystypotables (2039) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2013
Aroma of dark chocolate and burnt malt. Rich ebony colour. Smooth taste of coffee and dark chocolate. Palate is a bit weak and slightly bitter. jbruner (5121) - 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. stevencon (522) - Sarasota, Florida, USA - FEB 23, 2013
