12 oz bottle. Quiet pour with minimal carbonation and a bourbon, dark fruit, and molasses aroma. The beer has an opaque dark colour with a thin tan head and fair lace. It has a bourbon start with hints of dark fruit expanding into the middle. The finish is long with sweet notes of molasses, only a faint hint of hops, and an extended warm alcohol glow at the end. Lager mouthfeel. jtclockwork (17254) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 10, 2017

Boozy clover nose. Black with whitish tan head. Booze hits,. A bit Sweet with smoked coffee vanilla finish. Very smooth. Weird To think this is a lager. Thin mouth feel but it is a lager. Bit of booze burn on finish TheBeerGod (6261) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUL 8, 2016
Bottle courtesy of my friend Lance. Thanks! 2015 Vintage. Black pour with a short tan head. Aroma is malty and boozy with caramel notes. Taste is overly sweet with booze, vanilla, caramel, sweet malt and candy bars. Body is medium with a soft, dense carbonation and big stickiness. Finishes with more sticky candy notes, caramel, vanilla, sweet malt and booze.

UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Tap at Clubhouse BFD. Pours black, tan head. Aroma is bourbon, sweet. Dark but not very lager-y. Boozy burn. Just a regular bourbon beer. Not bad, but quite hot. markas101 (2499) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2016
Brewpub, Ann Arbor, MI. Jet black, thin head. Massive aroma, inky, prunes, molasses,tobacco. Sweet, more prune and cocoa, with alcohol and deep resin finish. Great. drowland (9053) - Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2016
11/15/15. Bottle during Ryan’s epic birthday tasting. Thanks, Mike! Fuck these Brewers for the wax. Seriously, if you’re reading this - fuck you. Fuck you to your core, you idiots. Anyway, this bottle says 13%. Booze all over the aroma, from the beer and a little bit of bourbon, otherwise ashy, charred, dark roasted malts, day old weak coffee, and a touch of sourness. Big, boozy flavor, bourbon, charred, ashy fireplace wood, old bad coffee, caramel, cream, lingering acidity. Not good. rdixon77 (3010) - Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Thanks Danny! This one was just harsh all around. Bottle said 13% and it tasted all of it. Some coffee bitterness, maybe some oak, strong yeast, but mostly burn.
