lusikka (6525) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
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.

Vestergaard (452) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2014
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!

RasmusOtt (1255) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a fizzy brown head. Aroma is nice base H&V with some smokey whiskey notes, sweet chocolate, sweet ripe fruits, vanilla and woody notes behind. Pretty nice Aroma yo. The taste reminds me a lot about H&V too.. Lots of roasted notes, liquorice, and darks died fruits but also some vanilla and some more alcohol woody notes behind. Not a turn off at all. The beer carries the 13% very well. Lower carb would not hurt anyone though :). All in all - This is gawd stuffz!
