Pours Black, with barely a head. Aroma is crazy: bourbon, wood, smoke, malt, buttered toast, vanilla, cocoa, alcohol, banana.Taste is sweet, sour, umami, and then bitter. Finish is salty/bitter/umami. Palate is oily and slick, like a bourbon, with a very mild carbonation. I love this brewers sour beers, and that character is in this fucker. Its fantastic, but i regret drinking this so soon. Should have aged it.

From notes. Tasted in early December 2012 from a 7oz nip bottle, shared with Curtis. Pours nearly black with no head. The nose is milk and dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, vanilla, coconut, and maple bourbon. The flavor is a bit sweet bourbon up front, but balanced out nicely by all of the coffee, dark chocolate, and molasses. The body is full with nearly no carbonation and a long sweet bourbon and bitter coffee and dark chocolate finish.

vipinvelp (2446) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - JAN 12, 2015
Black, no foam. Aroma if bourbon, taste of American Bourbon. Nice soft taste. I do not consider this a beer, didnt drink it as a beer. But very, very good nevertheless. (Velp 201501)

from Erzbierschof, 11% - black beer with a modest foam left; evident woody aroma of Borubon, notes of caramel, chestnuts and cherries; full-bodied, fairly sweet and thick; a robust bitterness and a very long roasted and woody aftertaste of vanilla, chocolate and Bourbon with some residual sugars

MatthijsE (916) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 28, 2014
On tap @ de Molen. Pours opaque black with a small dark brown head, creamy with nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasty, whiskey, a bit of cardboard, not exceptional. Flavor is significantly better, medium sweet, light bitter, whiskey ever prominent but not dominating. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, some astringency.
