Pours pitch black, impervious to light. Kakhi head slowly fades to a ring around the glass, lacing it nicely. Big boozy aroma, loads of chocolate, roasted malt, some vanilla and coffee. Huge flavor of chocolate, bourbon, pretty boozy, vanilla and espresso on the finish, which is a bit bitter and dry. Very creamy and full bodied, absolutely delicious. Allow this to warm up to almost room temperature to drink. This is a bottle that I would expect to wait in line for 2 hours for. Amazing that it is on shelves in beer stores.

2011, bottle no. 1574

Poured at cellar temp, it is pitch black with a 3 finger head of tan foam and when the foam shrinks, it leaves some nice lacing.

The smell of whiskey is up front and in your fac...err..nose. There's some notes of dark fruits and a pretty beefy nose of vanilla. Smells damn good.

The flavours are all over the place but work SO well. Big whiskey though not as dominant as in the smell. Very Malty with a nice not over the top sweetness, roasted malt is done nicely, a bit of dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, some coffee?, toffee, an ever so slight presence of an alcohol bite. Marvelous!

Full bodied, hell yes, with a nice lightish level of carbonation, the mouthfeel, just like the rest of what this beer offers, is amazing.

Take all of what I wrote and put them together, this IS an amazing brew! /me shaking my head. The only reason I don't give this a 5 overall is that it is so damn strong/warming. I *could* have..
