3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark red brown with a almost no head. Aroma is roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, oak, coconut, red berries, vanilla. The barrel influence is noticeable but nicely balanced. Taste is near heavy sweet, medium bitter with a delicious tart note. Body is medium+, texture is thick oily, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet, roasted and plainly delicious. Not overpowering in any way.

180ml bottle (Belgobaren, Stockholm) - freebie from the owner of the whole Monks Cafe chain - wow thanks! (8:4+:8:4+:16+=4.0+++)
Sweet vanilla and chocolate cakey aroma, a touch of alcohol in places. Black, brief head. Smooth palate, almost slick, but luscious. Gentle tingle of burntness and hops crispens it up. Chocolatey cakey body, a little sweet. Creamy butter adds to the chocolate cake in the late finish. A super-mellow rich sipper. World class.

Tiny bottle at Mikkeller.
Not quite black, brown head. Dark fruit, bourbon, huge marshmallow aromas. Flavors of plum, date, oak, candy sugar, coffee, and chocolate. Crisp carb and surprisingly thin. Overall, very good beer, glad I got to try it.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Awesome to get a chance to try this. Pours black with a milk chocolate brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of roasted malts with a hint of coffee and underlying notes of sour red fruits/Bordeaux barrel and a nice light vanilla bourbon note. Flavor has an overlying sour red fruit note but the base is much more malty with dark grains, roasted malts and a hint of bourbon in the finish. A bit muddled on the tongue.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The barrel influence is noticable. Slight sour, whisky like taste with a full well rounded finish. Amazing fatty palate. Bottle number 1836, guessing from 2010. Havent been too blown away by De Molen beers lately. This one is simply brilliant.
