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.

Pours a dark blackish beer with almost no head. What you would expect from a ba beer. On the aroma you definitely pick up the bourbon also some coffee, espresso like aromas. You also get the bourbon in the taste but not too overwhelming. Also lots of sweetness at the front and very bitter at the back. A little warmth from the alcohol at the back of the troat. Aftertaste is fenomenal and lingers in my mouth for some time. Love this beer.

From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a waxed and capped 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours nearly black with no real head, but some bubbly brown lace. The nose is roasted and dark with coffee, dark chocolate, and plenty of oaky vanilla. The flavor is very dry, with coffee, dark chocolate, and roast, with the vanilla, coconut, and maple bourbon rounding everything out. The body is full with light carbonation and a long dark chocolate and coconut, vanilla bourbon finish. This is a very good BA Stout.

anstei (153) - SWITZERLAND - DEC 21, 2014
33cl bottle from Erzbierschof. Compared to the Hemel & Aarde Bourbon BA which I had just two days ago, this one here wins in many ways: The nose has more barrel aroma, the taste is much more refined and full, and the palate is much more enjoyable through it’s long and complex finish. Tastes a bit too much of alcohol though. Still, a strong beer that I enjoyed very much!
