4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a beige, little bobbled head that stays to the end. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, vanilla. Taste of roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla and of course bourbon. Medium body, light carbonation. Delicate bitter aftertaste. Beer has velvet texture.

Taste comprises chocolate milkshake with bourbon, light roast, toasted coconut, woody twinge, dark toffee fudge.

Visual: Pours ultra-dark brown/black with a decent sized dissipating head, a thin layer of retention, thin lacing, lots of steady streams when held up to the light.
Nose: mildly aromatic roasted malts with hints of fishiness/nuttiness. (lvl-2)-pungency
Attack: oily light-thick silky-fizzy mouthfeel
Mid-palate: light tingly, (lvl-6)-sweetness, (MAIN) dense lightly roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, vanilla, coffee
Finish: airy, clean malty bittersweet coffee finish
Summary: A very clean and sippable stout without much sourness or jaggedness. High quality, but a little soft with the body and depth.

Fra fad, Taphouse. Rødbrun, meget lille beige skumtop, lav karbonering. Heavy whiskey-næse. Sødlig ristet, masser af træ. Brød, toffee. Savner til gengæld lidt krop. Ikke meget bitterhed til at balancere sødmen. Ikke mig

Plus a solid black with a tan head and lacing. It has a somewhat faint aroma of bourbon and toasted malt. The flavor is toasted malt up front with a solid bourbon backbone and a toasty, dry finish over a smooth body.

Maple and bourbon. Alcohol. Barrel aging isn't overpowering, which is nice, but palate is pretty thin. Pretty good, but needs improvement.
