Bottle thanks to beerman6686. Aroma of bourbon and toffee. Pours black with no head. Oily texture. Some heat numbs the tongue. Light light carb.

NosirIwont (2050) - Aalborg Vestby, DENMARK - DEC 14, 2013
Bottle. 12.0%. Bottled June 08 2010. Bottle no. 21. Pours almost black. No head. Dusty, sweetish aroma. Dark fruits, malt. Hints of vanilla and wood as it warms. Flavour is sweetish and roasted with notes of coffee and dark fruits. Finish is almost sugary, with dark fruits, cold coffee and a hint of tobacco smoke. Has an alcohol burn, but not matching the high %; well-balanced. Overall good; flavour is better than aroma. Would have been nice with a head. 15.12.13.

weihenweizen (2015) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2014 Refrigerated 11.2 oz. brown bottle, says ale aged in bourbon barrels, poured into a snifter. Pours black with dark brown highlights and very small beige head. Aroma is nice bourbon, medium/thick body, low/no carbonation, and very little lacing. Taste is roasty, bourbon, some ash, some dark chocolate, some soy sauce, and some alcohol. Heavy, hard to drink, wouldn’t go out of my way to have again.

SlackerMads (1929) - DENMARK - AUG 23, 2013
Bottle, bottled in January 2013. Black with a medium sized creamy beige head. Sweet chocolate, vanilla and bourbon in the nose. Same things in the flavour with some light burnt/charcoal notes. Fat and creamy texture. Sweet with some light roasted bitterness, but overall sweet and sticky. Good stuff when in the mood for sweet and heavy.

Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - AUG 16, 2010
Great look. Potent nose hints of peanut butter fudge and brownie. Wonderful tasting. Dessert-like. Perfectly balanced. Mainly base beer character, until the 30+ second finish, where the barrels come into play and the beer showcases notes of whiskey and espresso bean. Again, the really long finish is what makes the beer special. De Molen makes the best stouts in the world. His beers are also among the most cellar worthy in the world.

mathieuc (1815) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2013
Pours pitch black with a small white head that receeds into a small rim that leaves minimal lacing. Aroma is boozy, almost completely boozy like a spirit. Taste is minimally sweet with a lot of alcohol heat/tingle. I didn’t get much "in your face" bourbon but there is some nice and light bourbon notes in the flavor along with some caramel and light roast. Mouthfeel is OK, with a medium body and a lighter carbonation which actually feels higher because of all the alcohol which is not hidden at all. This was drinkable and even better than the regular H&V to me but not by much.

PotjeBier (1781) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 2, 2010
On tap @ Tilburgs BF (26 June 2010). Black, with hardly any head and little carbonation. Aroma is strong bourbon whiskey, wood, charcoal, roast, vanilla/creme brulee, hints of dried fruit. Flavor is sweet malty, dried fruit, a hint of sourness. Strong alcohol feel, but still medium bodied. Long finish with lots of wood, vanilla and some bitterness. Definitely the best beer of the festival and I’m glad I still have a bottle of this waiting for me.
