Pours a dark chocolate brown color thats nearly opaque with dark mocha/mahogany edges and a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin ring. Mediocre retention, disappearing mid way through the pour with minimal spotty lacing left behind. Carbonation looks low but this beer has nice color. Sweet boozy aroma with a really nice barrel presence thats nicely integrated into the notes of the base. Slightly charred oak with sweet, boozy bourbon, toasted coconut and silky vanilla bean. Underneath, there is faint roast with coffee bean and burnt malt countered by luscious, dessert-like sweetness. Hints of bakers chocolate, fudge and licorice. Smells pretty nice with pleasant barrel notes but could use heavier roast. Medium body, slightly viscous with soft carbonation and prominent barrel notes. Charred oak, spicy bourbon and vanilla stand out without obliterating the other flavors. Underneath, theres a nice balance of dark roast and lighter malt sweetness. Malt bill is more robust than nose hinted out but still less than expected. Charred toast, burnt sugar, coffee bean and bitter dark chocolate countered by caramel, toffee and dessert-like sweetness. Well balanced, complex and deceptively drinkable.

Bottle shared thanks to JBPortland ! Pours a deep mahogany color with a touch of sienna on the edges and a thin veil of eggshell foam. A bit oxidized with notes of flat cola, cardboard, nutty bourbon, stale malt, orange peel, bitter rancid peanuts.

JBPortland (1535) - Hampton Roads, Virginia, USA - JUL 16, 2015
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2015 22oz bottle pours dark brown black with medium fizzy head. Nose is nice initially with some caramel, chocolate, and nutty sweetness. On the palate things fall apart, very thin watery body, some bitter nutty chocolate, light ashy chocolate, and cola, there is a bit of a tangy note creeping in that seems to be heading in a weird direction. Finishes thin, light roast, dark bitter chocolate, stale cola, a bit sticky. Past its prime and not very good anymore, unfortunately.

Bottle... This beer rocks! Pours about as dark as a stout. The aroma presents caramel, dark chocolate and a rumor of cinnamon. Ultra Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel and relaxed carbonation. The rich flavor is a malty and spicy swirl of sweet caramel, candied tree nuts and mocha with hints of cinnamon and maple preceding a warm bourbon component. Roasty-sweet, burnt marshmallow and bourbon finish. Kudos to landhoney for providing this world-class beer!

Advocate_Ames (620) - Steubenville, Ohio, USA - FEB 16, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2015 Pours dark with a soft foam head that dissipates to hug my glass. The aroma is of inviting bourbon, oak, dark malt character, sweet burnt buttery caramel like syrup, and vanilla. Tasting I picked up on warming bourbon, a blending of malts and syrup sweetner. The balance between sweetness and bitterness was enjoyable with a pleasant dry boozy bite. I was surprised that this beverage did not affect my palate more. The finish was rather great. It was on the threshold of too much bourbon and too much booze but with the blending of ingredients it tamed those intensities. Overall a hell of a beverage. It is hard not to appreciate this.
