“2015 burgundy wax. Gift from a guy at work who’s wife got him 9 btls at brewery. Pours thick as any with fluffy, 1 inch, dark brown head. Aroma is roasted barley, soy sauce, alcohol esters. Flavor hits you with sweetness off the bat. A little rich and toasty flavors sneak through but sweetness dominates. As the sweetness fades, the caramel and molasses come through with a little chocolate and coffee aftertaste. Very big and very sweet. Hard to rate palatability high. A great novelty and must try.” -- by beeratarian

“1 jun 2015, tap. Black. Nose is vanilla extract-sweet and vanilla. Full body and mildly fizzy. Wow. There is a lot here but it is soo sweet and the vanilla tastes like vanilla extract smells. Also reminds me of bourbon-vanilla, wood, alcohol. I like this a lot but it is too sweet and too much vanilla.” -- by Blairgus

“Near black opaque body with a thin, beige, oily collar. Aromas of dark fruit, chocolate, roast, chocolate covered raisins. Medium too thick body, palate coating. Delicious flavor, bourbon character is present but not overbearing, blending in to the beer harmoniously. Outstanding.” -- by Huhzubendah

ENG: 355ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the Teku glass. Opaque black color, big but dissipating, dark-beige head and some lacing. Looks great. Aromas of dark chocolate, coffee, cocoa, vanilla. Smells amazing. Tastes very sweet and roasty, but it’s also smooth, not heavy-smoky stuff. Very pleasant. Cocoa, roasted caramel, chocolate. Sweet caramel-cocoa bitter aftertaste. Low carbonation, medium to full body, it’s very smooth and easy drinking, creamy. Overall I really enjoyed this brew, it’s so easy-drinking, yet quite complex. Maybe a bit on a medium-full body (I would prefer a tiny bit fuller body), but the flavors are anyways nicely deep enough. Really great brew!<br
PL: Butelka 355ml zakupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do Teku. Barwa czarna, smolista, piana ciemno-beżowa, gęsta lecz szybko opadająca, ładny lejsing. Aromaty ciemnej czekolady, kawy, kakao, wanilii. Pachnie świetnie. W smaku bardzo słodkie i palone, ale jednocześnie gładkie, nie ciężkie-wędzone. Bardzo przyjemne. Kakao, palony karmel, czekolada. W posmaku słodka, kakaowo-karmelowa goryczka. Niskie nasycenie, średnie do wysokiego odczucie w ustach, jest bardzo delikatne i przyjemnie pijalne, kremowe. Podsumowując bardzo smaczne piwo, łatwo-pijalne, mimo to złożone. Może za bardzo średnio-wysokie odczucie w ustach (wolałbym nieco wyższe), jednak smaki i aromaty i tak są głębokie. Naprawdę świetne piwo!” -- by GraffitiVandal

“W aromacie chlebowo, jest winnie, są dzikie nuty, migdałowe, wiśniowe, naprawdę jest bogato. Barwa rubinowa, dużo farfocli pływa, piana średnio obfita, mocno nagazowana. W smaku mieszanka wielu smaków - słodkie, syropowe, lekko miodowe i owocowe z jednej strony, lekko alkoholowe, stajenne, brzoskwiniowe i wytrawne z drugiej. Chociaż jeśli chodzi o balans to zdecydowanie po stronie słodyczy jest. Piwo ma sporo ciała i jest wysycone klasycznie dla takich belgów, czyli raczej wysoko, warto je odgazować nieco, by wyczuć więcej. Goryczka jest raczej niska a alkohol całkiem dobrze ukryty. Dobre, bogate w smaku i aromacie, warte spróbowania, ale raczej tylko w legendarnie najlepsze.” -- by Procent

“100ml on tap at Haand Řlfestival. Slowly diminishing head leaving spotty lacing behind. Black as pitch. Attractive aroma of dark fruit, dark malts and wood. Nicely roasted taste of dark fruits, cocoa, toffee with a sheer raspberry twist. Lingering aftertaste of malt and mid-tart berries. Full bodied. One of the very best at the festival (Drammen 29.05.2015).” -- by Rune

Bottle 0.33 l, Drink Hala, Wrocław, Poland.
Brązowe, mętne piwo o jasnobeżowej, obfitej i trwałej pianie oraz bardzo przyjemnym, owocowym aromacie. W smaku złożone i idealnie zbalansowane, owocowe z nutami suszu i palonym, łagodnie rozgrzewającym finiszem.” -- by Arek

“On est dans le top des quadruples... Le nez est sucré, fruité (trčs abricoté !). En bouche, on perçoit de suite une attaque d’alcool qui s’évapore de suite en réglisse ainsi qu’un soupçon de cannelle. L’abricot se retrouve en toute fin de bouche (genre abricot sec, un brin plus amer). Les transitions sont parfaites via l’alcool, le sucre... Pour les amateurs de belges fortes, corpulentes, rondes, une indispensable, une incontournable !” -- by Bawelt

“330ml bottle from Mikkeller bottle shop. Black, fluffy tan head. Roasted coffee aroma, bitter spices, light smokiness. Very tasty, coffee, roasted espresso beans, grilled lemon, meat marinade, green herbs, mildly sour. Medium carbonated bubbles that feels back in the mouth, creamy mouthfeel. Sweet and bitter in the finish.” -- by Turtles

“0.33 bottle. Very dark brown color and virtually no head. Aroma of oak, chocolate, spices, delicate sugar, hints of toffee, and just as the description suggests - bourbon and calvados. Taste is sweet, malty, delicate bourbon, a slight sting of alcohol, some fruits, once again spices; yet it could be stronger. Medium body, oily texture, and a lively carbonation - the only drawback. Finish is fruitier, sweeter but also sourer, introduces delicate molasses; alcohol hangs on the verge of detectability but otherwise the same as the taste. Overall a marvelous beer; the barrels have imparted a substantial amount of taste and aroma, and I am definitely partial to BA beers.” -- by KoNrRiI
