Vestergaard (838) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch, oily black with a beautiful nut brown head. Aroma has vanilla, cinnamon, bourbon, caramel sweetness, dark roast, port wine, figs. Taste has more chocolate, coffee, some sweet licorice, but still lots of these vanilla-bourbon-coconut flavors. Extremely easy drinkable, sweet stout. Alcohol is very well hidden. Fat, gentle body and low carbonation. Yum!

Houtmankutkop (28) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2014
Een plens ruwe Brent olie in je glas, zwarte vingerverf. Ziet er doods uit. Nauwelijks schuim. Zachtzoete bitterheid. Een italiaanse espressobar met een bakje pure chocoladerozijnen. Dit concurreert met port. Kleine slokjes grote smaken. Ik ben om!

Cunningham (5327) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 23, 2014
Thick black body with almost no head. Leather, mild peat, oak and vanilla nose. Full body. Tad sweet . Moderate bitterness and an oily creamy texture. Almost no carbonation. I can not say it is anything wrong with this one. Probably heaven for those who love this flavors. I am not unfortunately not a fan. But it have a fine profile with leather, mild peat, vanilla, oak and some coffee. It is a really complex ale with many dimensions.

simont1 (365) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 25, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 Chocolate, oak, a lot of oak and very deep rounded smoke character with a prominent roastiness. A bit of dark fruit, mostly raisin, aswell as prominent bourbon character. Quite dry, but a lot of unsweetened dark chocolate/cocoa nibs, most outstanding is the oak character, lots of vanilla smoke, bourbon.

deekyn (1335) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 17, 2014
A- pours an opaque cola brown with mahogany edges. Thin tan head that quickly thins and clings. Light lacing. S- espresso, bakers chocolate, maple, twigs, anise, chalk, cacao. Grainy malts, booze and oak support. M- some thickness to the medium oily body with a medium bitter palate. Mild to medium bitter palate that goes down with good burn. T- dark chocolate, graham cracker and vanilla up front. Bourbon and oak follow with cacao, coffee, roasted malts and wood on the mid palate. Brings to mind the profile of a barley wine. As it warms some rhubarb appears. Ending is bitter and sharp with an almost tannic quality. Minerals and grass as well as tobacco and vegetal notes come through.

Little 6oz bottle, stamped 222. Big thanks to Erik for the top 100 tick. Nose has some very dark European roast with a touch of booze. Taste is a lot if dark fruit, sweet cherries, some booze that to me comes off more fortified wine than bourbon. Palate was a bit thin and rather flat. Otherwise a very tasty little bottle.
