4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap @ Beer Temple. Black color. Beige head (not much). Aroma’s: roasted malts, oak, vanilla, light bourbon. Bourbon comes out more retronasal, with sweet chocolate and hints of red fruit. Flavor is moderate to full sweet, chocolatey, with a hint of fruity acidity. Alcohol is warming, but it drinks easily. Body is full, velvetty mouthfeel. Long finish, warming, with roast, a bit of ash and light bitterness. Awesome stuff.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap @ Beer Temple, Amsterdam. Pours black with a gorgeous, thick and creamy, mocha-colored head. Aroma is a superbly strong whiff of sweet vanilla chocolate. Just mesmerizing and enchanting. Taste follows along the same lines. Sweet with vanilla and chocolate, not cloyingly so. A lot of roast and bittersweet chocolate to balance. Just marvelous. Could drink tons. Smooth, full, some carbonation.

Drank a shitload of this on my stag night. Totally awesome brew. Huge body, smooth as silk and perfect balance between the bourbon vanilla oak aroma’s and the roastyness of the malts. Great.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap. Pours jetblack with a small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate and alcohol. The flavours are of roasted malt, molasses, chocolate - lots of chocolate, lots of wood, vanilla and alcohol. Actually, the taste of alcohol is so dominating it’ll stun your senses before it even gets to your tongue. It sounds good on paper, but I really didn’t enjoy this one.
