Gold wax split 3 ways. Good but not exceptional for style. Wish it had a bit more heft. kaser (6220) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2017
Had this at a bottle share - about 6oz, 2016 bottle. Thick black pour. Coffee and dry. Cocoa and strong. It was a bit of a let down, but still a great beer Christpuncher (3110) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2017

[1/28/17] Bottle/Draught at RateBeer Best festival in Santa Rosa. Black with a tan head. Huge aroma of chocolate, roast, bourbon, vanilla, fudge, cake. Sweet chewy flavor. Full-bodied, rounded, silky. Amazing. VsXsV (4420) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2017
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with small to medium tan head. Aroma of coffee, raw sugar, chocolate, raisins, bourbon, vanilla, wood, toffee and caramel. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of coffee, raw sugar, chocolate, bourbon, wood and vanilla. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Velvety mouthfeel. Great stuff. Smooth, complex, delicious.

On tap at Ratebeer Best.
Aroma is interesting with some dark fruit and red wine notes: grapes, raisins, plums and prunes with hints of berry. Moderate chocolate notes with some light roast notes. Light bourbon and a bit of oak.
Pours black with a medium small, thick, dark mocha head that recedes steadily to the edges where it lingers before disappearing. No lacing and moderately long legs.
Flavor is similar to the aroma with a moderate fruit character including raisin, plum, prune and lighter berry notes. Moderate chocolate with medium light roast and hints of tobacco and ash. Medium bitterness. Light bourbon notes with a bit of oak. Some light alcohol spice.
Mouthfeel is full bodied with medium carbonation. Low astringency and medium low alcohol warmth.
Overall, not the beer I was expecting. The dark fruit was off-putting and the malt profile was a bit more muted and not as chocolate forward as I was hoping for. klm1 (1501) - Bled/SF, - JAN 29, 2017

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.
