MrHangover (2766) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 20, 2014
Bottle @ THT December, courtesy of Random Stranger. Stoked to try this. Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma of coffee, slight vanilla, bourbon and loads of roasted malts. Flavor is very sweet and quite complex. The age has given it some vineous notes in the background, giving it a very light acidic note in the aftertaste. The front is dominated by bourbon and molasses, kept together by vanilla and caramel. Great balance, great age and great beer!!

Bottle at DOST. Opaque black pour with thin brown foam. Aroma is nice and boozy, lots of licorice, light cocoa, whisky. Taste has tons of cocoa, whisky, winey, port, licorice, salt licorice. Palate is full bodied, rich but not cloying. Pretty amazing stuff, even today.

Ughsmash (7184) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 13, 2014
Rating #7000, 9th Anniversary on Ratebeer! 750mL bottle. Poured near black with a tight-bubbled toasted dark brown head. The aroma picked up burnt chocolates, licorice, cane sugar, and a touch of soy.. smoky whiskey was very nice on the back of the nose. The flavor opened with tangy, greener coffee and woody notes, with buttered cocoa, bakerís chocolate, licorice, and a bit of molasses following.. sharper whiskey laced throughout.. burnt cocoa, coffee, and Madeira on the long, warm, lightly tangy finish. Heavy-bodied with smooth, rolling carbonation on the palate.. buttery feel on the middle.. sharp at times on the edges, mostly barrel-related.. overall a good feel and tasty brew, but it wasnít as cohesive as I expected.

gEUS (1267) - Linden, BELGIUM - FEB 25, 2014
750 ml bottle - sampled at Jeffoís place, next to the "straight" BD. Overall less impressive than the Original, there was something íoff" in both aroma and taste. Aftertaste was slight hoppier.

jbeatty (1098) - New York, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottle, 01/11/2014. Pours thick black, dense frothy mocha tan head which fades down to a nice crema on the suface, medium ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is earthy, fresh pressed cocoa and slightly acidic coffee, fresh tobacco, fruity chocolate with vanilla, mild whiskey, wood. Taste sweet and fruity up front, dark chocolate, hint of that coffee from the nose, dry woody roast, moderate bitterness building in intensity towards the finish, some char in the aftertaste. Medium thick palate, very creamy. Awesome, glad to have finally tried this one, held up well.
