Cask at gbbf 2013. Aroma is oak booze and whiskey. Choc and a touch of higher alcohol. Opaque black with a reluctant tan head viscous with big legs. Flavour is big on the oak and booze. Some vanilla. Finish is tangy berry. Warming alcohol. Too much barrel for me

jmgreenuk (5613) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - SEP 10, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Poured a deep mahogany colour with a big frothy tan head. The aroma is big malt, fruit and alcohol. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a huge roasted malt, liqourice, fruit and alcohol palate. It’s a super rich and very heart warming beer. A king amongst beers for sure!

CapFlu (4723) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2013
(33cl bottle) Courtesy of Blomster. Pours a thin beige head and a deep brown body. Smell the Wild Turkey in this, good malt base. Flavour of gritty coffee, very boozy and vanilla. Cocoa beans. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sarlacc83 (1220) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 5, 2013
11.2 oz bottle. A: Pitch black with a very faint mocha head. Has great legs, though. N: Rich mocha/dark chocolate covered espresso bean. Heavy amounts of vanilla/caramel/bourbon/oak. Some dark fruit. T: Lots of bourbon. Quite sweet with oak acting as balance. Some moderate bitterness. M: Oily, and medium-heavy body. Alcohol is very well-hidden. O: This is far better than the regular version. It really is just about everything you’d want in a barrel aged stout. Plenty of flavor showing through, everything in coordination...I wish this didn’t cost so much or I’d buy a case.
