3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark mahogany color, almost black; small sized beige head; in the beginning it pours oily and undercarbonated. Mild aroma of chocolate, roasted malt, cardboard, cream. Correct body strength, very good chocolate flavor, with just light residual sweetness, and with nice vanilla touch; correct bitterness. Very Pleasant.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Mogwai. Helsingborg, December 2011.
Pours clear brown with a red hue. Weak head. Sweet aromas of bourbon presented as vanilla, fudge, cocos, caramel and butterscotch. Some notes of milk chocolate in the background as well as some fruity notes of red berries. Sweet in the taste with a slightly to weak body, could use some more malt. Alcohol shines through as well as sugar.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle thanks to largadeer. Dark brown in color with a small tan head and good lacing. Big bourbon aroma with dark chocolate and some roastiness. The flavor is good but a bit weak. Bourbon, oak, dark chocolate, and weak coffee. A bit thin on the palate, which is not always a bad thing. Medium-low carbonation. Good beer, but I’ve had better from the -bals in this style for sure.
