bhensonb (11801) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 8, 2010
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!

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.
