This was a huge beer! Pours cola with light head and no lacing. Nose is super sweet, like a jersey milk bar. Flavours of molasses, milk chocolate and booze. Tastes were big huge sweet and light bitterness. Mouth was quite creamy with low carbonation. Thanks Matt! Ferris (15267) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2014
Bottle - Vintage 2013 - Bittersweet boozy chocolate and candy sugars. Jet black/brown with a decent light brown head. Sweeeeeeeeet chocolate and some more boozy sweetness. Crazy. probstblueribbon (3791) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2014
750 ml bottle shared at Steve’s. Deep brown, mocha rim. Intense chocolate, molasses, some booze, a little barrel character, very sweet. Intensely sweet and boozy, lots of chocolate; sweet with tubs of booze and a sweet chocolate finish. gad905 (202) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle shared at RichTheVillan’s, 27/11/13. Huge boozy bourbon nose, chocolate, roast, vanilla too. Extremely sweet, sticky milk chocolate, more bourbon, roasty flavours, coffee, toffee and vanilla behind, but this beer is dominated by boozy bourbon and sweet chocolate. Thick, slick, sticky. Gotta say I found this hard work. Maybe 5 years on it would smooth it out, or maybe it’s just too strong?

Bottle. Thick black color with solid tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate and dried fruits. Taste is thick, sweet and lots of chocolate. Not much vanilla. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2014
On draft at FoBAB2014. Pours a dark blackish color with a small tan head that dissipates into a ring around the glass. Aroma of chocolate and bourbon. Flavor is extremely sweet, hot, with some chocolate notes and sugar. Flavor is all sugar, chocolate, booze. Unappetizing. Bracingly sweet. Gross. Slick bodied. My 2 ounce sample was too much.

WOW!!!!!! This is amazing. The aroma is huge chocolate a and vanilla with the slightest hint of bourbon. The taste is exactly the same. One of the best stouts I've ever had. Top notch. This is great.

750ml bottle shared by ontbeertaster. deep brown, minimal head. huge bourbon, some vanilla, almost no chocolate. a really bourbon forward barley wine, not a chocolate imperial stout. j12601 (11706) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Bottle. Pours a slightly murky brown with a thin tan head. Bourbon and wood on the nose, soft caramel and chocolate. Warm chocolate, alcohol, slightly isopropyl, warm caramel. Really tasty and incredibly smooth. Lingering bourbon, caramel, toffee chocolate. Surprisingly good.
