4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2016 33cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown with a very short-lived tan, bubbly head. Aroma is chocolate, raisins, prunes, alcohol, oak. Taste is more of the same - very Christmassy notes with quite a heavy whiskey presence but very little of the typical buttery vanilla notes you expect with a bourbon barrel aged stout. Very little bitterness to detract from the rich flavours on offer here.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, poured into a snifter glass. Near black with a small brown head that fades to some spots of lacing. Aromas of wet oak, bourbon, slight char, roasted barley, vanilla, hints of coffee..hint of green peppers and olives. Taste is loaded with bourbon/oak upfront! Followed closely by notes of char/roasted barley, light chocolate, bitter coffee, molasses and light vanilla. Medium/heavy bodied with low carbonation. Finish is pretty warming with some sticky-sweet molasses, more bourbon/oak and bitter coffee. Solid beer.

Courtesy toss via Pepe. 33cl. Pours a thin looking almost black color with little to no head. Nose is bourbon and roasted malt. Slight coffee and some burnt cereal. Taste is sweet, sweet, sweet. Some subdued barrel notes and a lighter roast but holy shit is this a sugary bastard. This is one unapologetic beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Flaska (2013) på Pipes of Scotland, Uppsala. Svart öl, nästan utan skum. Underbar doft av främst Bourbon och vanilj. Väldigt len munkänsla med smak av Bourbon, vanilj, lite värmande alkohol, beska och svagt rostade toner. Mycket god!
