Idiosynkrasie (5029) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - AUG 10, 2015
330ml bottle. Quasi black colour with small, creamy, reawakening, tan head. Complex, sweet-ish, dark malty aroma, notes of treacle, vanilla, chocolate, hints of oak, leather, peat, shoe polish as counterpart. Taste delivers the same complex mixture of flavours; oily texture, slightly sticky palate.

beer-yum (883) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - JUL 13, 2015
Impressive licorice aroma with a sour twist in an inky black pour. Taste is the same - with hints of chocolate and coffee and a tasty sustained finish. Barrel aged version improves on the regular brew by merging all the complex tastes perfectly.

My godmother in law (if that is even a thing) is a saint for schlepping this and other beers from the Netherlands to break up the Kolsch train here in Cologne. Thank you Rianne! Pours opaque black, very small brown almost wispy head that dissipates pretty fast leaving a ring with some lacing. Aroma is a quite pleasant mix of bourbon, anise, roasty malts, cocoa powder, molasses. Flavor is a bit smoky, roasty, lots of deep roasted malts imparting some baking cocoa and molasses notes. Smokiness gives way to charred oak. Bourbon is present, but oak is perhaps more influential. Yep, this is a bit peaty, which is interesting given the stated barrel treatment. Rich and thick, full body, some ABV heat, but honestly pretty well masked for an 11% beer. This baby is a hundredth percentile beer, and fuck you if you don’t agree.

Bottle. shared with Simon of Round Tower Brewery to educate him on the wonders of barrel-aging!!! Thanks to my lovely Beer Fairy for this one! Opaque black with baige lacing. Aroma is huge. Oak, chocolate, Kentucky Bourbon, probably Wild Turkey, leather. Taste is blackcurrants, chocolate, raw cocoa, oak, wood, leather, Kentucky Bourbon and alcohol. Brilliant. Epic. Really drinkable too!

minutemat (2587) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2015
330ml bottle, thanks to Benzai! Pours deep black with menacing tan head. Lovely sweet bourbon aroma. Lovely sweet bourbon influence in the taste. The kind of beer you don’t write notes about.. you just lie back and absorb it’s wonderful warmth.

Zakoon (290) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 6, 2015
33cl bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours very dark brown, almost black with a tan head. Aroma is chocolate, smoke, bourbon, wood, peated malt and caramel. Flavour is sweet, woody and smokey. Full bodied, thick texture and soft carbonation. Finish is warming alcohol.

LordMariscal (22) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 6, 2015
Tomada en Cerveceria Kraken. Oviedo. Puro petroleo. Imperial Stout que no defrauda desde el primer trago. Sabores dulces del bourbon sumados al tostado, cafe, madera. Potencia en estado puro. Apenas tiene espuma. Ni falta que le hace. Para disfrutar 1 y 1000veces
