lusikka (7119) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 29, 2011
Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Rated @ 27.5.2011.
Pours a pitch black colour with a beautiful dark brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and oak. Flavour of roasted malts, oak, bourbon, hops and smooth caramel. Full bodied with a thick mouthfeel and a dry, roasty, caramel-like finish where the bourbon barrel feels slightly stinging. Yet another tasty brew from De Molen.

laiti (7264) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 29, 2011
18 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Pikkulintu. #1962: brewed 23.7.2009, bottled 08.06.2010, BBE 08.06.2035.
Very nice aroma with vanilla and hints of stinging whiskey. Stinging whiskey in the flavour, but some syrup-like roasted malt and some oat too. Very nice stuff, although the whiskey stings a little bit too much and lingers in the aftertaste.

D’un côté une impériale stout caramel / toffe et de l’autre une IPA avec une amertume ni florale ni fruitée. Unique mélange sans trop d’équilibre mais d’une étrange efficacité. Probablement supérieur avec le temps.

RasmusOtt (1593) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 18, 2014 Bottle. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma of espresso coffee, sweet chocolate, some oak, vanilla, prunes, dates, roast and very weak notes of earth. Taste of roasted coffee, alot of liquorice coming through, bourbon, wood, some weak salty notes, warming alcohol leading to a dry end. Very good!

Pitch black, tiny brown head, flat and very viscous. Aroma is spicy, chocolatey, oaky, roasty, vanilla, very sweet and complex, with some fainter coffee and whisky. The aroma is so rich it’s almost fattening. For me this beer tastes a bit like a tiramisu; chocolate, coffee and rich, dark alcohol. Any dry, roasty flavours are almost drowned out by the sweetness, though there is a bit of a coffeeish, though very chocolatey aftertaste. But throughout there is a bitter, refreshing tartness. Lovely, smooth mouthfeel. A really complex and fascinating beer. The only reason i didn’t give this a 9 or 10 is because it’s a bit too sweet for me.

Nose is pure bliss with vanilla, bourbon, coffee, liqourice, chocolate, honey, caramel, dried fruit, dark sugars. Taste is very complex yet balanced with vanilla, bourbon, liqourice, honey, figs, dates. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle? Black pour which was almost flat. Yet that flatness i thoroughy enjoyed this. Dark flavor are a clusterfudge of dark and sweet tones, bourbon does a good job dry this beer out, and probably caused the lack of carbonation.
