bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle. Black and opague. Oak, roast and a hint of peat in the aroma. Dark chocolate. Malty, roasty sweet flavor with oak, bourbon, vanilla and peat. Chocolate and caramel. The bourbon is dominating the peat. Delicious beer, but flavors come and go and lack harmony and balance.

PriorL (1663) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2013
33cl bottle at home. Appearance: very black beer, quite some carbonation noticeable, nice stable mocha foam full of bubbles. Nose: first get something peated, but goes over in some kind of sweetness slowly. Lots of coffee in it as well. Dark chocolate, very heavy burned malts, some herbs even, a tobacco like hint, like from a good cigar. Some alcohol as well. Taste: oh, this is too peated for me, luckily, there is also some alcohol (bourbon) noticeable and some coffee notes. But mostly a smoked taste, it’s too overruling for me though... I don’t think the bourbon comes out enough though... it’s camouflaged by the smoked aspect. Though, this beer is really well made, and I will enjoy every sip, it’s not quite balanced enough for me.

Abio (1551) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2013
Very dark brown beer with a bit to small head. Liquorice, wood and smoked malts. Not bad at all, but something less pleasent inside.

Barrelbelly (624) - BELGIUM - MAY 25, 2013
Pitch black, small head. Very smoked aroma and taste. Bitter roasted coffee bean aroma but the smoked biurbon aroma takes the upperhand a bit too much.

Vaiz (3298) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2013
Bottle @ home. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma of chocolate, bourbon, ripe fruits, ash, alcohol, roasted malts and some peat. Flavor is roasted, ash, quite bitter and a bit sharp. Still a bit young, but already quite nice.
