Arômes parfaits d'alcool, de chocolat. On retrouve au palais le café, le whisky avec presque une pointe de vanille. Du grand art !

gEUS (1302) - Linden, BELGIUM - NOV 7, 2013
330 ml bottle at home - pours deep dark brown with only some foamy film over the beer. Low carbo overall. Rather bland bourbon aromas, a bit smoked, leather. vanilla and cacao. Veru smooth silk soft mouthfeel, just a hint of alcohol. Very balanced, nice roasty and malty aromas. Bitter finish, yet gentle. Tastes better than it smells, overall a decent beer.

RichTheVillan (3772) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; dark black pour with tan head, quite big bourbon aroma, very bourbon forward taste with some medicinal phenols, sweet roasted malts, bit to heavy on the bourbon for me.

jookos (2898) - FINLAND - OCT 25, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 26, 2013 Bottle. Black with tan top. Oaky, vanilla, nose. Some chocolate, a bit of sweetness. Full bodiedd, sweetness with balanced bitters. Strong bourbony flavour, almost like strong porter with a shot mixed in. Gets to be a bit too much sweet boozy bourbon.

SuBarbare (4) - Lille, FRANCE - OCT 24, 2013 does not count
Bottle with Sir__V @ his Home. Black opaque color. No carbonization, No foam. The smell is first roasted, then the really nice barrel taste. taste: first you taste alcohol, then the malt, sugar, round taste in mouth. I notice a real light bitterness at the end palate: body is full, texture is fat, you feel it going everywhere. Nice sensation.
