Sarlacc83 (1116) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Bottle. 2011 vintage. A: Pure black with a ring of mocha head. Good lacing. N: Bourbon, vanilla, caramel, coconut, cocoa, dark cherry, prune, red velvet cake. T: Very sweet. Hint of tartness. M: Heavy, oily body, fuzzy carbonation, alcohol hits the nose. O: A fine, viscous beer. The bourbon aging is excellent. Could use a touch more body, bit otherwise, well worth one’s time.

Tasted from draft. Pours black with dark brown head. Aroma is sweet with bourbon and caramel notes as well as some dark fruits. Taste is very complex. Bourbon flavor with caramel, syrup, dark fruits, oak, toffee, vanilla and some toasty notes. Excellent and complex beer that hides the alcohol very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jamedra (611) - Hostivice, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 11, 2015
Láhev 355 ml. Aroma je naprosto ultimátní, autenticky kokosové obalené v kvalitní mléčně čokoládě s nádechem jemné whiskey a dubu v pozadí. Pěna je hnědá, jemná, nízká a nedržící. Barva samotného piva je téměř neprůsvitná rubínová. Chuť je lahodná a bohatá, je v ní znát kokos, mléčná a hořká čokoláda, dubové silice a to celé je prostoupené jemnou whiskou, díky čemuž tato chuť pravidelně přechází do jemně čokoládově hořkého finiše v doprovodu alkoholové palčivosti. V ústech pivo působí mohutně, má střední říz a i přesto je dobře pitelné. Tohle pivo mě absolutně odpálilo, je to snad to nejlepší co jsem doposavaď měl a upřímně na delší dobu asi zůstane, aroma tohoto piva je jednoduše grandiózní a o chuti nemluvě, je to nádherná plejáda pestré chuti silných piv, perfektně vybalancovaná a dokonalá, tohle je opravdu nezapomenutelná zkušenost.

Delicious foamhead! Very complex, soft, viscosey and deep malt beverage! Slight bourbon peppery hints, vanilla, cassis in the far background, lots of brown chocolate aromas. Mouthfeel is stunning. A lot of depth in the taste profile; Heaven Hill (a lot more than the Rasputin HH BA from De Molen!) Kentucky whiskey, vanilla, cane sugar in the middle, slight fizzy on the tongue in the aftertaste. I get lots of brown chocolate and raisins in the after too. Loveeeee this! Long lasting heat on the palate... and stomach.

Krjukoff (22) - SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
Poured 2010 bottle. Pitch black, sweet bourbon, fruity smell. Love the taste of oak barrel bourbon taste that is so clear, with a smoky aftertaste. Not so much mouthfeel as I would have wanted. But overall a great beer. Not great, awesome!

skmikeg (1124) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours pitch black with a half finger tan head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, woody notes, dark fruits, molasses, coffee, dark coco, vanilla, and a little booze. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some butterscotch, and mild hop bitterness. Has a medium-full body with a creamy, warming, slightly boozy, medium-long finish. Overall, a excellent strong ale that borders on imperial stout territory.

neongolden (680) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
(375ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, Feb 6 2015) Pours basically black with a small tan head fading quickly to a ring. Aroma has lots of bourbon spirit notes, some vanilla/wood too, some pretty intense fudge/toffee malts, almost creamy, fruity prune-type notes, a bit of nutty toasted malt too. Palate loaded with malt, toffee/fudge/raw sugar/milk chocolate/toast, and also lots of bourbon flavour. Vanilla oak and prunes as well, fleshing it out and giving just a little fruit acidity. Quite sweet overall but with some spicy whiskey alcohol heat towards the finish drying it out, and subtle roast too for bitterness. Full bodied, creamy and oily, with soft but active carbonation. Big big beer. Warming and maybe a touch too sweet to be really drinkable. Total sipper. Hides its alcohol well. It’s definitely a good one, but really calls for a cold night and a fire.

simont1 (345) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 10, 2015
Lightly fruity with plums, raisins and burned sugar, very little toasted malts and a decent bourbon oakiness to it, a bit vanilla, wood, and alcohol is a bit too forward, in general it’s very thin.
