Barwa czarna nieprzejrzysta. Aromat to bardzo przyjemne połączenie kawy, wanilii, gorzkiej czekolady oraz palonego słodu. W smaku podobnie jak w aromacie głównie czekolada z wanilia. Wyczuwalna jest również whisky oraz palone słody. Mimo wysokiej zawartości alkoholu jest on praktycznie niewyczuwalny. Podsumowując jest to genialne piwo!

Gravity at GBBF 2013 named ’Hel & Verdoemenis Special’ but barman informed me it was the Wild Turkey Barrel aged version. Colour is opaque very dark brown, tan head. Nose is alcoholic, orange liqueur, sherry wine, dark chocolate, little bourbon, christmas cake, caramel, dried fruit. Taste is dark fruit, prune, Christmas cake, sherry, roasted malt, dark chocolate, touch of bourbon barrel. Complex yet beautifully balanced unlike so many American barrel aged whiskey bombs.

Bottle from mane liquor. Pitch black pour with small bubbles on top. Lacing is solid. Nose is very molasses driven with dark chocolate and tiny hint of vanilla. Maybe some pepper as it warns. Taste is really good. Quite balanced with licorice, oak and bitter chocolate combining nicely. Alcohol hidden exceptionally well. Bourbon notes creep in towards the end as it warms. This is an awesome beer. Enough said! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 9, 2013 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours black as the night with no head. Just a few bubbles which pop up. Nose shows heavy pepper and chocolate, loads of molasses. Really quite oaky. Slight vanilla in there. Smells very good. Taste is very balanced compared to what I was expecting. Heavy oak, silky vanilla, spice, dry cocoa powder, liquorice. As it warms it gets more chocolatey with some bourbon influence to it. Drinks very well and a very pleasant warming on the finish. Top quality

From cask at Gbbf 2013. Black with limited head. Nice vanilla and espresso, potent in both directions and nicely balancing. Chocolate and marcipane. A masterpiece.

stoutnick (585) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - AUG 13, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 18, 2014 Black with light foam. Aroma is roasted sweetness, bourbon smell. Roast is the big flavour here; as it warms the sweetness comes out to play. And booze. Palate is a lingering roastiness. Overall, the roast balances better with the barrel ageing than the original. But very boozy!

Pours from a bottle it is a dark brown with a tan head. The aroma is of bourbon and the taste of bourbon lingers on the palate.

From a 33 cl bottle shared at home. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon. Flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla and licorice. Boozy finish.

Bottle at home, big thanks to Joris for looking out for me on the trade, 11/08/13. Mid black with a tan head that dissipates to a swirl. Nose is roast malt, dark chocolate, dark toffee, brown sugars, vanilla, bourbon. Taste comprises chocolate, dark fruits, bourbon infused wood, brown sugars. Full bodied, fine carbonation, smooth and massaging on the palate, sweet but balanced finish - perfect feel. Great stuff. The bourbon is well pitched, alcohol well integrated, great feel and ultimately an easy drinking affair!

2013 vintage bottle. pours jet black with a verry small tan head. aroma has a lot of bourbon notes from te barrel. this comes back a lot in the taste. some chocolate hints. some vanilla. warm taste from de bourbon. not a huge fan of the wild turkey version. could be a nice beer after some aging.
