Absolutely re-goddam-diiculous. The aroma is chocolate, sweet and spicy rye whiskey, licorice, bread. The appearance is jet black, deep tan head. The flavor is chocolate, whiskey, bread, licorice, fruit nice. Awesome thick body, creamy mouthfeel. The finish was a modest booze burn, sweet chocolate, light roast. Completely awesome. A great example of barrel aging that augments the beer, without overpowering it. The rye whiskey gave it a tangy spicy quality as well. And it’s. great imply stout in its own right. zizzybalubba (1880) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Sampled at GABF 2014. Black pour with a thin brown head. Incredible aroma of German chocolate cake, vanilla, oak, and bourbon. Taste of chocolate, coffee, booze, and vanilla. Warm finish. Somehow my Iowa rating is the last of the U.S. states but it was well worth the wait. A perfect 5!! yourilevesque (1829) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2016
Certaines personnes perdent leur chemise à une table de poker ou à des machines à sous. Je prédis que je perdrai la mienne en quête de cette bouteille. Marc-André, je ne saurais comment suffisamment te remercier pour cette expérience où j’ai goûté au Divin. Tenter de décrire cette bière serait me lancer dans une histoire sans fin où je me perdrais certainement en tentant de nommer ce qui est au-delà des mots. Mes dernières paroles seront: Assassin tu m’as tué. Grâce à toi je vis maintenant. bytemesis (8985) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 2, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2013 Tap. Holy sh*t this is good. Pours opaque black with a medium deep brown head, creamy, some lacing. Aroma is chocolate, dark roasted malt, bourbon, coffee, quite intoxicating. Flavor its even better, quite sweet but not cloying, light coffee bitterness, wonderful balance between the bourbon and stout flavors, and completely masks its huge ABV even through the finish. Full bodied and silky. BrewHaMeister (456) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2014
2014 vintage yellow wax bottle pours like dirty motor oil with a thin tan head and coats the glass like oil as well. Wonderful oak, whiskey, raisin aromas with hints of chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Delicious! Bytemesis, you will not be disappointed.....if I can hold on to that last bottle long enough!

22 oz bottle is yellow wax (2013) shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt! Pours a near black with a lasting edge head that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruit syrup, slight oak and vanilla. Flavor is same with full carbonation balancing the full syrupy mouthfeel. Delicious with dark cherries and rye in the finish. kkleu357 (634) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pitch black motor oil body. Almost no head, but who cares. Woo that smells good. Chestnut aroma with an awesome whiskey smell. Good amount of alcohol aroma. Really sweet. Almost a prune raisin taste. Lots of woody barrel tastes. Similar to a fine brandy. Too much going on to explain. Just an absolutely excellent beer. Marheb (6028) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 14, 2015
Des effluves chaudes de bourbon submergés de sucres diverses, principalement chocolatés. La texture est hors norme, complètement badigeonnante. Un liquide mémorable.
