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.

bierkoning (11669) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 21, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2013 2013 bottle. Deep dark brown color. Malt, chocolate, caramel and bourbon in the aroma. Raisin. Malty sweet caramelly boozy flavor with bourbon, raisin, coffee and dark chocolate. Sweet, but complex and delicious dessert beer. 2010 nip bottle: mix of H&V barrel aged for almost a year on Wild Turkey, Austin Nichols and new charcoaled bourbon barrels, and then mixed, according to the label. Almost black and opague. Strong aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruit and bourbon. Roasted and charcoaled flavor with coffee, strong bourbon notes and dark chocolate. Malty sweet but very complex. Long earthy hopbitter finish with charcoal and bourbon. World class! (9 4 9 4 18 = 4.4)

mcberko (11001) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 27, 2013
UPDATED: APR 28, 2013 330mL bottle, pours black with a small beige / tan head. Nose is very rich, full of bourbon barrels, heavily roasted (nearly burnt) malt, dark chocolate, and more bourbon - extremely complex. Flavour is intensely complex and rich, full of deep dark chocolate, exquisite bourbon barrels, a little treacly notes, and some wood. Extremely rich and deeply layered, with the barrels used to perfection - not overburdening in any way. The sweetness factor is low, which is how I prefer my impie stouts. Finishes on notes of bourbon and rich, barely sweetened dark chocolate. A wonderful BA rendition of Hel & Verdoemenis.

Black pour, very small brownish head. Aroma starts with big bold bakers chocolate, booze, asphalt and some light coffee. Flavor is smooth and delicious. Booze, chocolate, oak, molasses, prunes, raisins, and very light ashy/coffee notes. Great beer. Really awesome.
