3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
The best beer of The Netherlands. I had this beer without aging on a wild turkey barrel. It was a bit disappointing. So I hoped this one would taste better.
Pours a black beer, hazy liquid with an brown/tan minimal head. The aroma was nice. Coffee, roasty, dark chocolate, alcohol and licorice.
The taste was again disappointing. To much coffee taste, a bit to sweet.
It has a medium body, oily thick creamy texture, soft carbo and an astringent alcoholic and bitter finish.

Reviewed from notes, 2013 released bottle tasted 03/07/2013, thanks to jeffo. Pours black, small white head which fades quickly. Aroma is sweet corn bourbon, vanilla chocolate, deep roast notes. Taste is sharp sweet caramel bourbon, a bit cheap, chocolate and bitter roast. Thick palate, smooth. Tasty, but not one of my favorites in the series, the barrel doesn’t quite do it for me.
