A big thanks to Brian for knocking off this long time want. 750ml waxed bottle into Drie Fonteinen stemware. Reviewed from notes at a tasting.

Pours big, viscous, deep and pitch black. Huge legs with a dark mocha head that sticks around. Spotty lace with good cling. Menacing!

Nose is chocolate, molasses, fudge, cocoa and lightly tart fruit. Very robust and appetizing.

Opens cocoa, fudge, sweet pepper, chocolate, molasses, and booze. More chocolate and a touch of roast and more sweet peppers in the middle. End is molasses, leather and dark fruit. Cocoa powder and dark chocolate in the aftertaste. Delicious!

Full bodied with minimal carbonation. Oily and slick in the mouth and goes down warm and smooth with a messy finish and a sticky, slightly lingering aftertaste. Exactly what I want from a beer with this intensity and flavor.

A shockingly good beer that really hasn't lost much with time. This is still worth going after and is certainly one of the better beers in the horizontal.

Bottled shared at the Brass Tap bottle share...

Beer itself is super viscous and pours with a visible "glug." Forms a very minimal head that barely sticks around for a few seconds. On second thought, it just looks flat. Color is black; it is fully opaque. Aroma is sweet and syrupy with notes of chocolate. There is a faint whiskey aroma as well, but it does not dominate. Taste is similar. Moderate sweetness, molasses, chocolate, and some very mild ancho spice. Not getting much whiskey in the flavor at all. Full bodied; there is no confusion on this one - its a heavy beer, slightly spicy mouthfeel. Very low carbonation, not quite flat, but pretty close to it.

750 ml bottle, another very generous share at the Peg's bottle share on 3/8/13.

A- Pours black and thick with a quickly dissipating mocha head, leaves little lacing.

S- Incredible aroma, lots of whiskey barrel, oak and vanilla, the whiskey flavors are rich and sweet. The barrel aromas mix with a really nice dark chocolate cake aroma,

T- Just as good as the aroma, lots of rich dark chocolate, roasted malt, whiskey/vanilla/oak, and a very mild chili and cinnamon flavor. The spices have faded but I think they're at just the right level to work with the barrel flavors really well.

M- Full-bodied, low carbonation with a smooth, rich, thick feel.

O- Another excellent beer, all of the BA Hunas have been amazing so far. This is a very delicious beer.
