Travlr (18614) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - NOV 5, 2009
UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 750 ml bottle labeled as The Oak Podge at Churchkey in DC. ABV listed as 9%, which makes me think this is a separate beer from the Bourgogne Barrel, but I haven’t tried that one, so can’t say for sure. Poured (by Greg the beer manager) with a massive tan colored head that settled quickly and left nice lacing. Aroma had notes of licorice and caramel candied apples. Taste had emphasis on the malts with a subtle background of wood, dark cherries and figs. Long lasting finish was both dry and mildly bitter. Best beer of the night.

75 cl Bottle - BBD = 02/2014 I enjoyed this beer, but stout’s are just not my thing really. I’d love to drink this once again, but would not especially go and search for it. Just a decent beer.

30/07/2015 @Centerparcs – 50cl bottle from Bierhalle Deconinck Black with very small tanned head, small lacing after that. Burder malts, coffee, light licorice and small hints of sourness and wine. First sips I didn’t like but it became better and better

Bill Becker (651) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Special edition. Only 9% abv. Pours black with a 2 finger head of tan foam sitting on top. I get some fruity tartness and roasted malt up front with a mild nose of wood. The tartness is the first thing I notice in the taste followed by roasted malt, dark chocolate bitterness, and some wood from the oak. All of the flavours seem to working together nicely and the alcohol is not in your face. Just some warming after each of the swallows. Close to full bodied with medium to medium light carbonation. I do like this offering from Alvinne.
