Itty bittie bottle from Alvinne beershop. Bottle # 955. Pours very brown/black with a couple of tan bubbles. Aroma is to die for. Bourbon,oak and chocolate. Full bodied with miniscule carbonation. Flavor is burnt malt,bourbon, chocolate, and possibly coffee. Mild heat. Thick and syrupy, but the oakiness offsets that. Super!

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2012 Draught at de Molen. Great aroma of whiskey, cocoa, vanilla, dates. Lots of bourbon apparent in the taste. Overall good stuff. Would like to compare to the bottled version laid down for a few years. 4.3
Bottle #1624 courtesy of Holy, thanks for fulfilling my wish. Brewed July 2009, bottled June 2010, consumed August 2012. Pretty much black, coaxable large bubble head that settles quickly. Aroma is somewhat more subtle and subdued. Tasty is ceamy coffee, espresso and caramel liqueuer covered with chocolate and vanilla. Aroma is now a 9 and taste is a 10. Definitely worth the wait! 4.4

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
It’s pitch-black without any head, and the mouth-feel is oily and delicious. The aroma has notes of hard-roasted malt, wood, licorice, coffee and caramel. The flavour is sweet and soft with notes of hard-roasted malt, licorice, oak and tannic acid, coffee, dark fruits, caramel, and the finish is bone dry – it’s a really nice one!
