Bottle thanks to Fin. Cheers my friend. Thanks so much. Black and thin tan head. Looking forward to this as Menno produces some of the best strong stouts in the world. Lovely intense dark choc and espresso coffee aroma with relatively subtle bourbon barrel aroma. Vanilla and wood definitely present though. I must admit, I do prefer something maybe more subtle as I’m not the world’s biggest Bourbon fan. In the mouth is an explosion of flavour. I mean the intense bitter dark choc finish is exquisite, simply exquisite. Smooth and full in mouth, even with some full milk stout lactic qualities. Bourbon clearly carries through the beer, but I enjoy the mouthfeel very much and the rich aggressive roast finish really is very special. The choc is absolutely gorgeous. Touch of heat on the finish. Really rather fabulous. Will be interesting to see how this develops over the years.

Bottle. An oily pour leaves a black beer topped by a small, tan head. It’s heavy on the nose, vanilla, oak and alcohol in the back, with coffee, roasted and burnt malts doing most of the work. Quite vinous. Alcohol too of course, it’s a strong beer. The flavor is sweet, but not too sweet, and quite complex with the barrels leaving oak, vanilla and alcohol, and the malts roasted flavors and coffee. Some alcohol wamth in the mouth, full-bodied and oily. Chocolate, coffee, red wine and vanilla in the finish. A lovely one. 110107

TBone (12538) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 16, 2010
Bottled 18cl (#2398, bottled 08062010)
Tnx bierkoning! Dark opaque brown color, tiny brown head. Strong aroma of bourbon: oak and vanilla with notes of licorice. Full-bodied. Flavor is roasted with licorice then lots of vanilla and bourbon. Slick thick palate. Quite standard barrel aged beer but well-made and base beer is excellent for doing barrel ageing. This is actually quite similar to Kaggen, but not as sophisticated.

Bottle, bought @ Ølbutikken, Cph.
Bottle #41
Pours dark brown (perhaps the barrel has ’stolen’ some colour, as this is even lighter in colour than the regular). Small, creamy, beige film head. Exceptional aroma. So subtle yet so powerful. Whiskey, port, vanilla, oak, lots of coffee, dark toffee, light liqourice. Vinious and with good dark chocolate on top. Low carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is really nice. Lots of oak, vanilla, coffee, heavy liqourice, light couch-syrup, vinious. Long, lingering coffee and mild hoppy and vinious finish. Exceptional.

Christian (11052) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
Black with a big and lasting tan head. Roasted aroma with licorice, some fruit, oak and bourbon. Sweet licorice, fruit and roasted flavour with a somewhat dominating oak and bourbon.
