Picked this up from a great trade with muskabeatz (Evan)! An aggressive pour yielded a pitch black body with a beautiful caramel-colored one finger head that unfortunately faded almost immediately with minimal lacing. The nose is nothing short of heaven! As soon as I popped the cap I could smell it. Huge and roasty with tons of bourbon and double chocolate fudge along with hints of coffee, oak, vanilla, booze, and molasses. The taste is just as big and just as bold. Chocolate fudge and bourbon are again the stars along with a ton of oak. And the chocolate is not subtle. It's like eating a chocolate fudge brownie. Absolutely amazing! It's nicely complemented with hints of vanilla, espresso, tobacco, molasses, and a touch of black cherry and smoke. The mouthfeel is smooth as silk and thick as molasses. The finish is spicy with an amazing alcohol burn. Yeah, it's 15%, but I could easily drink another. Bourbon aged stouts are my favorite style, and this is the best I've had to date. Probably the best beer I've tasted!

July 2014. On Tap at Rattle n Hum. Better than a extra Birthday that doesn't shorten your life span. As a matter of fact this adds so much pleasure to the day, it's like doubling down on this particular 24 hours. At 15%...Hey, WTF...I'm on board.
02/21/12 From bottle. Rattle n Hum, NYC. If this was the only brew in the world I would not be unhappy. Been drinking it, whenever possible, for years & even with the switch to Budweiser It's still a superb brew.
