gEUS (1723) - Linden, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2015
Bottle 2014 vintage at home. Pours deep brown to deep marroon black.Aroma is extremely roasted hazel nuts, coco, dark malts, burnt caramel, bourbon raw alcohol, topped with loads of vanilla. woah. Medium to big body, very slick and oily, loads of alcohol burn, some bitterness towards the end but nicely overly sweet. Taste is again all of the burnt characters from the nose, and some leather and burnt rubber as well. One of the most intense BA RISís that I have ever tasted. Nice.

2014 bottle shared. Pours near black with a minimal ring beige head. Aroma of huge oak barrel, bourbon, malt, vanilla, chocolate, leather and a touch of licorice. Flavor is light heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Full bodied with a very soft carbonation bringing out notes of caramel and molasses in the palate. Excellent!

blockdude (4) - California, USA - MAR 26, 2015 does not count
I certainly enjoyed this yearís version more than the í14 in terms of how balanced it was and how the coffee and bourbon were not overpowering. The barrel qualities are also quite nice, with many different flavors going on from chocolate to raisins.

DesertDevil (685) - Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2015
2015 red-waxed bottle (thanks for bringing this, thebitterendaz!). The nose features a fair amount of alcohol and rich bourbon, along with lighter tones of dark chocolate fudge, faint soy sauce, charred oak, and a touch of root beer. Pours glossy black with dark coffee highlights. Thick syrupy chocolate is the dominant flavor with smooth bourbon, moderate coffee, burnt toast, light soy sauce, and a faint whisper of balsamic vinegar. Heavy body with a sticky texture and a hot finish. OK, this is damn nice, but itís not even close to being worth the $45 bottle cost.
