A BIG thanks to generous BA and friend cosmonick for sharing this one at our Black Friday tasting!
Poured from 750ml bottle into red wine glass.
Aroma: Vinous grape, coconut, chocolate syrup, and soft bourbon aroma warms the sinuses. One can immediately tell that this one's going to be a delicious sipper.
Appearance: Light tan head with (not surprisingly) minimal retention. Dark black body in the center, which transitions to cola brown around the edges. After each sip, the thickest legs I've seen from a beer drip down the inside of the glass!
Flavor: Coconut, sweet dark rum, dark caramel, toasted marshmallow, bourbon, black cherry, and raisin on the finish. In general, there is quite a bit of sweetness to this beer (the perception of which is enhanced by the extremely high ABV).
Mouthfeel: Body is admittedly thinner than anticipated. This one comes across almost as a fortified wine or liquer, albeit with medium-low carbonation. The alcohol in this one is very warm, but not harsh.
Overall: I can definitely see why this one is so sought-after. EXTREMELY well-done!!! The bottle label says it can be cellared for "decades", which did not surprise any of us. At 18%+ ABV, it's far from being a session beer. If you can get a bottle, though, I'd recommend splitting it among 3 or more friends as cosmonick did. You'll be the toast of the tasting!

Thanks to my brewing buddy Steve for this one.
Pours up black with brown edges. Quickly fading brown head. Nose is chocolate malts, booze heat, raisins, black cherries, caramel. Tastes of all of the above, huge bourbon and oak, and then some. Thick bodied, smooth mellow carbo. Insane!
