4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
33cl bottle from Mikkeller & Friends bottleshop. Black pour with lovely mocha head that goes the distance. Lovely dark fruits and licorice on the nose - touches of coffee, slightly fruity and vanilla-driven whiskey notes in there too. Smooth vanilla-heavy whiskey in the taste, big roasted malt, plums, figs, dark chocolate, light roast coffee, more licorice, big brown sugar. Tiny touch of booze. Full bodied and velvety. A bit of an earthy hop bite to finish, lingering fruity whiskey and dark fruits. Great stuff.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap. Pours black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malt and chocolate. Taste like aroma but adds vanilla, wood and booze. Sweet and pleasant with a little bit of bitterness in the finish. Full bodied. Overall very good - the barrel ageing is very balanced. Definitely one I'd drink again.

Aroma is very strong and rich. Smokiness,caramel,molasses,fig,smokiness all here. Taste is a rich fruitiness with plum and raison with a roasty maltiness. A tad of alcohol bite but not much for a 10% beer.Appearance is black with a head thwt retains poorly.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2014 Pours black, thin light tan head fades to hazy layer of foam on the surface, tight ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma begins with whiskey- vanilla, coconut and melted caramel- light toffee chocolate roast, fudge and booze-soaked raisin, light cherry. Taste is spicy caramel and whiskey, subtle vinous notes, cocoa dusting, darker bitter roast amid lighter fruit elements,vanilla hiding in the background.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black with a short, khaki head with a thick lacing and sticky legs. Aroma contains cocoa, cherries, sweet smokiness (almost a light peatiness) and a light touch of good quality coffee. Taste is where it gets interesting, huge dark cocoa powder flavour, backed by a toasty molasses sweetness and lingering port notes with raisins and cherries. Light bitterness that was unobtrusive and let the malt do the talking. Definitely a different stout to what I’m used to, if you see this buy it.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Deeply roasted, vanilla, dark fruit. Very very roasted with a bit of booze, very oaky, but not very well combined. A lot of flavours, but I think a few years of aging would improve it, very powerful roastiness, bitterness, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and oak. Great beer.
