3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle. Pours a black colour without a head. Aroma of roastiness, nutty malts, cognac and and tart wood. Flavour of roastiness, tart wood, cream, vanilla, herbs, molasses and licorice. Full bodied and oily but a bit thin mouthfeel. Carbonation is too low, unfortunately, as it is almost non-existent. Flavour is more complex than in the original version. Too flat, still.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
33 cl Bottle. Pours pitch, heavy black with a brown, short lasting head. Aroma has both bourbon and smoked whiskey notes, butter, vanilla, heavy roast, baked banana, syrup, salt, burned sugar. Taste is yummy! Lots of vanilla, espresso. Sweet in a fruity way. The alcohol is definitely there, but it adds complexity and body to the beer. Speaking of, the palate is overall pretty nice, but the carbonation is a little too high imo. One of the better variants!
