4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Small quickly disappearing lively brown foamy head. Leaves a headless black beer.
Aroma is very nice, bourbon, vinous, roast, liquorice, wood,
Flavour has too much liquorice and alcohol. But let it breath for a while and you have a better beer. Still some strong alcohol and liquorice tones but acompanied by a nice wood/bourbon/vanilla/vinous note, some spices (alcohol/alcohol burn), herbs, malts, bitters, roast and coffee with a dark chocolate edge.
Aftertaste is dark chocate, some cocos, light woody, some liquorice and vanilla.
Low carbo, creamy spicy close to silky mouthfeel, full bodied and a oily creamy texture.
A lot of alcohol, itís ok, but the alcohol burns a bit...

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
26-APR-2014, bottle @home, from Mikkeller & Friends.
Black with quickly dying tan head that leaves a dull black surface.
Very dense looking.
Aroma is oak, bourbon, roast, chocolate, soy, sugar, alcohol
Taste the same with loads of red wine character added. The red wine barrels also adds a little tartness but that just helps balancing the immense sweetness. Full body, soft carbonation, long alcoholic and roasted finish.
Aroma somewhat resembles Bourbon County Stout but taste is very different with the wine notes.
Very interesting but far too expensive and not worth the price tag.
