4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
(355ml bottle from Systembolaget shared) Pours pitch black with an average tan head and spotty lace. Aroma of molasses, brown sugar, peanut butter cups, a bit of coffee bean, vanilla, alcohol, wood. Flavour is quite sweet, especially toffee and molasses, sugared bourbon, hot brewed coffee, wood, chocolate, but also some saltiness for balance, increasing roast bitterness and coffee character towards the finish. Medium full body, soft carbonation, fairly ample booziness but not over the top for the ABV. Definite sipper, intense, coffee holds up to the bourbon well but I was happy to share.

Hmm cool aroma, hard to identify what it is, maybe bourbon and over ripe fruit, pours pitch black. Nice
Taste is very complex, some what fizzy mouth feel, them licorice, herbs, bourbon.. In the best of ways. The taste develops in your mouth, wonderful warming after taste..
Very, very, very good...

Powerful malt, coffee and bourbon vanilla aroma on this black liquid with red tones. Amazing taste, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, dark berries, peak, roasted malt and alcohol. Almost perfect. Unfortunately the price is a major drawback.

Served on draft. Black with an average mocha head and nice lacing. Smells like bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, and coffee. Taste is strong bourbon flavors with coffee, bakers cocoa, and some oak and vanilla. Thick mouthfeel and lingering flavor. Outstanding beer.
