On tap at CBC 2012. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Chocolate-malty aroma. Starts earthy-malty, strong, soft chocolate notes. Finish warming-malty, a bit alcoholic, but well balanced. Great beer!

Wonderful aroma and flavor. Then the long aftertaste of coffee does not do this beer worse. Cruel beer should be enjoyed. Follow me @ Kung av Ųl / King of Beer @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Color: strong dark black beer with no carbonization and medium brown foam. Smell: cognac, wine, malt complexity, brown sugar, sugar cane and small alcohol nose. Taste: strong malt taste with good bitterness and grapes taste. Aftertaste: a really small alcohol taste with nice malt and caramel taste.

Bottled, febr 2012. Black color, medium lasting brown head. Aroma of chocolat, coffee, bit grainy, hint of grapes, molasses. Apart from the barrel aging, it does have some similarities to a certain Double Oatmeal Stout. I noticed on the label there should be some barrel aging, although it was hard to find out what kind. Not bourbon or peated whisky, more mellow and now that I see ratebeer, itís speyside whisky. Ok, fair enough. In taste itís quite dry, some wood and quite boozy. A bit too boozy actually. I can recall I said that about the H&V misto as well, but this one has aged for over a year, so it cant be that itís too fresh. Itís just too boozy.

Bottle courtesy of Colin. Dark brown pour with a tan head. Whiskey aromas. Effervescent and maybe a little over carbonated. Dark roasted malts, whiskey, and coco notes. Good lacing and mouthfeel.

rand (1299) - SWITZERLAND - APR 13, 2013
Bottle 33 cl from Bier-Bienne (CH). Oily all black beer, nice dark tan head. Torrefied flavors dominate the hoppy bitterness, black licorice, coffee-mocha, smoky note and bouquet Whisky. The taste is similar, very roasted, mocha and cocoa, peat, woody and Whisky, Irish Coffee, raisin, acidity and warmth of alcohol. Earthy hop, hint of wood and tar. Full beer.

Deep midnight black pour, 3 finger coffee coloured head. Nose is oatmeal, creamy lactose and vanilla. Lovely bourbon notes. very little roasted coffee character. Sweet and chocolatey, no bourbon burn, the 12% is barely noticeable. Wow. great job!

Abijen (1553) - ís-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - MAR 31, 2013
Great beer! Pours a black beer, hazy liquid with a minimal brown tan head. It smelled like chocolate coffee and roasty. It tasted like coffee and chocolate, dark fruits. Light bitter and sweet. Full body, thick sticky and creamy texture. Carbo is a little bit to soft. The finish was astringent bitter and alcoholic.
