12 oz bottle.
Pours a thin dark chocolate brown with a thin light tan/mocha head that fades to a thin collar and splotchy film. Aroma of vanilla, fresh roast coffee, cocoa, baker's chocolate, mocha, rubbing alcohol and maybe there is some beer underneath this somewhere. Flavor is thin and mocha coffee like, powdery and boozy. Bourbon, vanilla and milk chocolate predominant. Let's be honest, there isn't much here that tastes like beer, just an amalgamation of flavors that taste good in any context (ice cream, coffee, cake, raw, a hooker's abdomen), that EVISCERATE the base beer.

Bottle, poured into Lost Abbey stemware.
Black as night; thick as hot cocoa. An incredibly dark, foamy head subsides to a graham cracker ring within a few seconds.
Almost acidic nose. The coffee in this is like torched espresso. Huge vanilla, vinous oak, chocolate syrup. A touch of dark cherry. Something harsh within.
Massive chocolate sweetness rounds out what seems like will be a continuation of the acrid nose. A touch of smoke, a lot of ethanol. Green oak, chocolate crumbles, vanilla bean. Just a touch too green in the oak. Sweet, balanced finish.
Flawless victory. Delicious. Not incredible, needs a little more depth. But a nice dessert treat.

On-tap at Strong Ale 2011
Black as you can get on the pour, a minimal tan head. The chocolate and coffee really add something to this and take away a bit of the booziness. Lots of whiskey and vanilla notes are still present, however. A touch of dark fruit in the background. The whiskey still cuts through the flavor along with some vanilla. Heavy on the chocolate and coffee with notes of raisin and burnt sugar.

Pours black and opaque with dark brown layer of head, minimal retention. Aroma had an onslaught of bold gourmet coffee. Incredibly roasty, mild waves of vanilla and chocolate. Taste is coffee forward with heavy chocolate. The coffee overwhelms everything (which I like), and leaves the barrel character out. Perhaps a bit of char but minimal vanilla. Mouthfeel is thick an mildly carbonated. Over, aroma is killer... Very bold, just lacking in the barrel department.

The nose on this is pure coffee, oak and dark chocolate. The coffee presence is really strong. When you taste it, you get a lot of pure dark chocolate that is both bitter and sweet. It also has a strong roasted malt presence and a light oak that adds some complexity. The vanilla is strong and adds a sweetness that balances out with some fresh coffee. The body is thick and creamy with a slight mild astringency in the finish from the coffee.
