Hermod (3307) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JAN 11, 2014
33cl bottle. Bottled Jan30th 2013. Pitch black, brown head. Sweet bourbon aroma, vanilla, peat, licorice, all coming together nicely. Amazing aroma, I could sniff this all night. Flavor has vanilla, sweetness, licorice, and peaty notes. Peat quite strong towards finish. Incredibly smooth. Finish lasts forever with vanilla and roasted malty, coffee notes. Absolutely amazing.

caesar (5201) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 26, 2013
Bottled, dated Jan 30th 2013, large sample. Dark color, short creamy brown head. Aroma of peat, chocolate, coffee, roast, leather, wood, hint of vanilla. Some sweetness in taste, quite bitter. Slight dry of the peat, but backed up with plenty of sweetness as well and some boozy alcohol. The bourbon itself is not that present (anymore), but it does balance out the loads of peat of the original beer. Decent balance, good beer.

Pours a disturbing black with a small tan head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark fruits, toffee, some coffee. Lots of roasted malts, vanilla and coffee in the aftertaste. A touch of smoked also to this wonderful brew.

DutchMark (170) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2013
Nice one! I am not a big fan of srong smoked flavor. This one has the smokiness but it is a subtle presence. The bourbon is nice. Not too sweet and not too boozy. Overall a very well balanced stout.

33 cl bottle @ Tampella, bottled 30.01.2013
Aroma is rich and malty with oaty notes and some vanilla. Bourbon is not that clear. Flavour is stinging, sweet and leathery with vanilla notes, some salty licorice and bourbon. Nice; the bourbon is not that overwhelming here.
