Douberd (1719) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 22, 2014
Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into the Borefts taster. Labeled Bourbon Barrel Aged, bottled on 19/11/13, ABV 11% Totally black beer, with a very small line of head, dark brown in colour, consisting actually of big bubbles mostle. Okay retention for its size, it leaves light lacing on the glass after a swirl of the glass. Aroma of bourbon and wood, roasted malts, light vanilla, alcohol. Very nice taste, chocolate and lots of it, alcohol, vanilla again, even some dark fruits, less bourbon than the aroma but still there. Thick body, good carbonation, surprisingly dry on the palate. Fantastic beer.

Black with a brown head. Whiskey, roasted malts and oak in the aroma. Flavours develop from sweet to roasted and acidic with a whiskey presence.

warhawk91 (240) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - APR 8, 2014
Draft at Armsby Abbey in Worcester, MA. Pour is jet black with a thin off white head. Smell is dark roast with chocolate coffee and big bourbon notes. Taste is about the same, very complex, really good stuff.

neuromatt (1020) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
2010 vintage. 25 cL bottle courtesy of Chris served next to the base, Bunnahabhain barrel and 666 versions. Pours deep oily black with a few bubbles but no head. The nose has big notes of molasses, vanilla and oak, along with chocolate, tobacco and roasted malts. The flavour is quite sweet with big chocolate and vanilla combined with oak, bourbon, molasses and tobacco. The finish is long and roasty with vanilla and bourbon. On the palate it is medium in body with a silky smooth texture and no carbonation. Overall, wow, this is a great barrel-aged imperial stout. It is incredibly complex, appropriate for fireplace sipping on a cold winter’s night. 2014-03-29

krokodyl (12) - POLAND - MAR 30, 2014
Ciemny brąz skryty pod niską brązową pianą, aromaty nalewkowe, bourbonowe, palonych słodów, kawy. Nieco alkoholowe w smaku, ale w dobrą stronę (czekoladki z wiśniami w likierze to idealne porównanie). Finisz nieco ściągający (jak dobra łycha), jednak przyjemny. Coś pięknego...

BMMillsy (1152) - Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2014
Small format bottle from Tipples dated 1/28/13 poured on 3/28/14. Nothing specific to Wild Turkey mentioned on this, just says "Ale aged in Bourbon barrels". Pours a thick dark black color with a small dark brown head. Beautiful fudgy chocolate bourbon aroma, caramel, vanilla, more chocolate. Flavor is lots of bourbon up front, sweet syrupy chocolate sauce notes, big burst of vanilla caramel on the finish. Huge thick mouthfeel with low carbonation. This reminds me a lot of BCS but with what feels like even more heft. Very nice...this just sits on the shelf here and I need to buy more of it (all of it?).

Bouteille de 33cl. Embouteillée le 7 février 2013. Une bière au liquide brun avec un semblant de mousse. Un nez de sucre brun, d’alcool et de chocolat. Une bouche d’alcool fruité, chocolat, de café, de bonbon au café, de toffee. Les saveurs sont agressives et fortes.
