Bottle from Beers of the World. Aroma of vanilla, smoke, cocoa, and alcohol. Ruined by a terribly thin palate and extremely distasteful metallic finish. Maybe a bad bottle.

Pours black, brown with a nice one-finger tan head with an aroma of wood, coffee and malt. Tastes of sweet caramel, butterscotch, chocolate and vanilla with a moderately bitter finish and moderate to strong alcohol. It’s full bodied with minimal carbonation. It’s slick and viscous. Clearly it’s bourbon barrel aged.

Bottle. Pours black with a small light brown head. Heavily malty aroma with cocoa notes. Somewhat sweet flavor with heavy chocolate notes and a touch of vanilla. A bit of smokiness. Full bodied. Very good.

Dark brown pour with light cocoa head. Aroma is initially cocoa (powder) and vanilla. Sweet, yet with a hint of savory underneath. The smoke is a touch harsher than I’d like, and IMO takes away from the otherwise decadent nose and flavor. Still a good beer, just not great. Warms up nicely, and hides the abv dangerously well.

It pours black, but not opaque. It has a brown head with very low head retention. It has aromas chocolate, roast, smoked malts, and some bourbon. There are also hints of vanilla and cocoa. There are low background notes of dark fruits. It has flavors of smoke and bacon, roast, and chocolate. There are secondary elements of bourbon and sweetness. It has a slightly spicy hop element and hints of vanilla. It has a full body, almost chewy with a moderately bitter aftertaste and strong alcohol warming, but not hot. Overall a wonderful blend of chocolate, roast, and smoked malts with a pleasant alcohol warming and a complex blend of other elements make this a thoroughly enjoyable beer.

This beer is on tap at WF In Wexgord. Very nice with lots of mellow chocolate and bourbon notes and.not any coffee. Smooth and.in this case the barrel aging has been additive. Dangerous as the nice full beer hides the alcohol. Just a tad.of fo over a black beer
