UPDATED: MAR 11, 2012 Vanilla, wood, alcohol, roasty/chocolatey in both aroma and taste. Also burnt wood and vanilla and caramel aromas. Pours deep brown/black in color with a bit of brown head. Smooth and very complex, well-balanced with a nice moderate sweetness.

PotjeBier (2422) - 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.

jonno (2405) - JAPAN - JAN 18, 2013
Big BA nose. Sweet vanilla, chocolate and berries with the bourbon coming in late and full. Quite taty and ashy. Low carbonation. Very rich and dirty. Top notch. Hides the ABV very well. Cheers Tim.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from DeMolen. Black with a small, light tan head. Aroma of chocolate, boozy bourbon, oak and coffee. Flavor is lots of bourbon, oak, bitter chocolate and light caramel. Medium to full body with average carbonation. Very hot but balanced with the strong, rich flavors. Better carbonation than some of the other BA versions makes this one stand out to me.

Abijen (2338) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2013
Pours a pitch black beer with a not very long lasting brown head. Smells incredible. Heavy chocolate, vanilla, some fruity and alcohol. Tastes vanilla, smooth, chocolate and coffee. Average carbo, medium body and a sticky texture. Just an incredible brew.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Super dark brown pour, minimal head. Aroma holds big notes of hot alcohol, charred wood, dark fruit, vanilla and lactic sugars, and some sweet chocolate. Flavor is absolutely excellent-- massive alcohol, oak, dry heat almost like a sauna, cedar, and roasted malt. Palate is rich and boozy, but still drinks so smooth. Super impressive, and really glad I grabbed this at de Struise brewery.

250ml bottle, brewed on 2009-07-23. Pours dark brown, thin brown head. Big, woody nose, lots of oak, vanilla, spices, roasted malt, chocolate, coffee beans, fudge. Very full bodied, thick, some sweetness. Rich, complex, fruity, very oaky, lots of wood and vanilla, alcohol, malt, coffee, fudge. Needs time? (2011-08-29)

NoiZe (2323) - Zeist, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2010
Black colored brew with a bit reddish/brown shine. The aroma is superb. Dried fruits, different bourbon tones and dark chocolate. Very nice. Flavor is great,starts of with dark chocolate, dried fruits, goes on to coffee, sweet malty tones and charcoal, hoppy tones. In the end the bourbon really comes through with a good hopbitterness and charcoal again. Nice warming feel. Great beer, barrel aging it this way was one hell of a good idea!
