From tap at Churchkey. Pours hazy dark brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is overripe fruity and roasted dark malt. SMooth whiskey, light fruity and mild vanilla wooden. Smooth caramelish, whiskey and light fruity finish. Theydon_Bois (21425) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 1, 2013
Tap at the Ginger Man, NYC, 23/11/13.
Dark mahogony brown with a moderate light tan head that clears to a covering.
Nose is rich roast, subtle bourbob, dark toffee fudge, a thin chocolate vein resonates from atop the glass.
Taste comprises oaky bourbonics, rich chocolate laced fudge, dark malt, dark toffee, light boozedom, more bourbon than on the nose.
Medium bodied with bite, a little prickly on the carbonation front, a touch over carbed in this respect, bourbon booze in the finish.
Decent number, let down a little by being a touch overcarbonated. The booze is well integrated. j12601 (13297) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2012

Medium bodied, wood and sweetness, oak and soft malt. Lightly boozy, chewy chocolate malt. Cocoa and roast, long cocoa bitterness. hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a brown color with a larger sized off white head. Lacing left on the glass. Whiskey, vanilla, oaky/wood, caramel, and some dark fruits. Marshmallows. Some tastes I got light whiskey and some strong whiskey. Alcohol contend overall well hidden. I liked this. DocLock (11189) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours thick jet black with 1-finger off-white head that laces extremely well. Definite 5 for look. Nose is huge oaky bourbon, cacao, brown sugar, I get black patent and chocolate malt, vanilla, prune, graham crackers. Tastes oaky, bourbony, with cacao, blackberry, graham cracker, prunes, vanilla, and a rich, smooth palate. Gets a tad hot late, and goes all over the place, but is absolutely unique and delicious.

Bottle @ Matt’s house, courtesy of bushmat1. Pours a brown appearance with a cream colored head. Whiskey, dark fruity, vanilla, a bit citrusy, slightly strange aroma. Cherry, mild berry, whiskey, caramel, slightly tangy flavor. Not my favorite. arminjewell (9727) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, thanks Matt! Dark black pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of nice whiskey, some slight oak, hints of earth, chocolate, some slight caramel. Taste is caramel, toffee, and not much else other than the whiskey, lots of whiskey and oak in there. Tastes good, but not a whole lot going on. nimbleprop (8924) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 18, 2012
4oz pour is a hazy garner amber with some soft beige head. Nose is nice, rye whiskey, vanilla, brown sugar, cake icing, rootbeer, light wood. Flavor is heavier, lightly tart, spicy rye, rootbeer, vanilla, cola, some cherry. Full bodied, sticky finish. Needs to mellow a bit. jredmond (8839) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 3, 2012
Draft at blind tiger with Dallas. Pours a deep, deep brown with white lacing. Aroma is oak, vanilla and sweet molasses. Mouthfeel is medium to thin with notes of vanilla, oak, sweet malts and light bourbon. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Draft at Churchkey. Poured a near pitch black color, came with virtually no head whatsoever, some fine lacing on edges of glass. Aroma was sweet dried fruits, with ton of roasted malts. Sweet sugar notes, roasted malts, plenty of alcohol on this one. Interesting.
