pours dark black with a paperthin dark brown head. Aroma of whiskey, in your face overpowering the other components of the beer. Taste follows, some chocolate, vanilla and oak. no peppers. The whiskey is too forward in this. still not bad just not my favorite of the variants.

yngwie (13575) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, 75cl, at TFODRBSG 2012. A black one, topped by a finger-thick dark tan head. Some lacings. Oily pour. Lots of dark chocolate and wonderful coffee on the nose. Roasted malts, alcohol, a touch of prunes and raisins, as well as a pleasant but intense boozyness. A bit heavy on the booze, itís really warming on the palate, full-bodied, oily and smooth. Quite hop bitter, both initially and in the end. The flavor has loads of dark chocolate, mocha, some boozyness resembling chili, and a touch of dried fruits. Really, really lasting finish with dark chocolate, roasted notes and some coffee. And bitterness. Superb and wonderful. 120818

Bottle. Pours jet opaque BLACK with a dense cayenne brown reddish foam. The aroma is vanilla, oak, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee and it is just incredibly intense! The flavour is extremely balanced with shit loads of bourbon mixed with chocolate, coffee, vanilla and oak. Absolutely amazing!!!

illidurit (2147) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
Bottle shared at the RBSG 2012 Grand Tasting. Black as night with a brown head. Aroma is rather mild with boozy notes, a stark letdown compared with the brandy version just a little bit earlier. Flavor is better, with massive roasty notes and plenty of dark chocolate. The whiskey seems to thin it out and kill the flavor somehow.
