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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

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!

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2015 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.
Rerate. erg moutige geur. Smaak blijft erg lekker. Iets te veel carbo zelfs.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a big creamy mocca head. Aroma is tremendous, with nice burned malts, liquorice, tobacco and peat, as well as coffee and lots of dark fruits. Normal body, with an oily, sticky texture and soft carbonation. Flavour is sweet with burned malts, coffee, leather and tobacco, as well as dark fruits, kandi and molasses. The sweetness lingers on with kandi and dark fruits in the finish. Very good.
