On tap at the brewery. Pours near black with a dark chocolate head that lasts throughout the beer. Aroma has a great combination of bourbon, dark grains and a bit of roasted malts. Flavor is boozy up front with bourbon backed by roasted malts, dark grains and a bit of biter chocolate. Dogbrick (13012) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Sample from 2012 batch at Great Taste of the Midwest on 08/09/2014: Inky black color with a medium tan head that diminishes gradually. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate and coffee. Medium to full body with a subtle boozy character and flavors of chocolate malt, coffee and sweet caramel. The finish is roasty with a malty aftertaste. Good beer all around. Bacterial (2999) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2014

Poured on tap at Town Hall Brewery into a TH Snifter.
A. Rich pitch black pour, thick 2mm mocha head, retains a nice island and ring even after sitting
S. Smells of sweet dark chocolate, sweet fruit, figs, and sweet sweet sugar
T. Tastes of fine chocolate, sweet cherries, slight caramel with a light toffee finish
M. Tingly, medium-heavy body, lightly coarse finish that lingers long after on your tongue
O. I really love this beer. It is the base for Czar Jack, and is great on it’s own! I ended up having 3 more glasses of it that night. It’s a treat and easy to drink. A couple straws of Jack Daniels and you almost have Czar Jack! Great beer! DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Pours a deep black with tan head. Aroma is pretty mild but consists of chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, a bit of roastyness, and caramel. Flavor is much more robust and very enjoyable.
