Looks.. Black/brown, little - no head Smells.. Dark dried fruits, liquorice, coffee, bourbon barrel, cherry/raspberry, slight pepper like spice Tastes.. Dried dark fruits, coffee, bourbon, soy and a raspberry like tartness that subdues to a liquorice/soy sense as it warmed.

Habanero (3308) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2014
Bottled. Pours almost black with a large tan head that leaves an excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice notes and a touch of vanilla and bourbon. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry, with bitter notes and some alcohol. Full bodied, oily text. and soft carb. An excellet Impy.

gEUS (1503) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 14, 2014
500 ml bottle at home. Pours black with a tiny tiny tiny head. Incredibly mellow Maker’s Mark (or Wild Turkey?) nose: vanilla, sweet chocolate, sweet cherries, and the nicest ever coffee aroma. Light body with medium sweetness and weird sour notes. The initial malt base seems a bit too light for the cask strength which renders the taste rather akward. Once a bit warmed up, the beer reveals a subtle yet unique balance...

sebletitje (7887) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 4, 2014
Bottle sample @ BAB’14. Brune foncée, col sporadique blanc cassé. Arôme est légèrement malté pointe de torréfié avec de belles effluves de bourbon et vanille, ces derniers étant quasi les saveurs dominantes. Palais garde ce petit côté aigrelet de levure mais nettement en retrait par rapport au bon côté de smalts; ici, grillé, léger chocolaté et caramel accompagnés par de belles notes de Bourbon et vanille. Au final, je me demande si les versions barriques de Alvinne ne sont pas meilleurs que les bières de bases. Possible que l’enfûtage efface un peu des erreurs de la levure Morpheus.
