12 ounce bottle. Dark brown, thin ring of tan head, fair retention. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, leather, piney hops. It even smells chewy. The taste is plum, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, oak. Medium-full bodied, chewy, booze well integrated. Nice beer. HI THERE KALEB! smaynard6000 (1187) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 2, 2017
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. slowrunner77 (12162) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 30, 2017
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. drowland (8831) - Georgia, USA - JUN 17, 2017
6/13/17. On tap at Craft on Draft. Black pour with a nice tan head. Mildly smoky aroma, savory, roasted malts. Lightly savory, almost salty, flavor, smoky, coffee, roasted malts, caramel. Not awful. hman43 (1612) - Pinehurst, North Carolina, USA - JUN 16, 2017
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 jw0406 (1285) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - JUN 5, 2017

12 oz. bottled 04/03/2017. Coal black with a sizzling away head.. Mild nose is dark chocolate, toffee and soy. Flavors of vanilla, marshmallow, dark chocolate, touches of peppery booze, banana and char. Long finish has a bit of wood. Medium-heavy body has a nice balance. Low carbonation is pleasant and the abv is well-cloaked.
