PotjeBier (1974) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 5, 2014
33 cl bottle @ home, almost a year after bottling. Label says 10.8%. Black color. Beige head with good retention. Aroma’s - from the glass: some smoke and not much else; retronasal: sweet & dark malts, smoky, some (red) fruits, charcoal, alcohol, chocolate, light oak/vanilla. Flavor is moderate to full sweet, sweet’n’bitter chocolate. Alcohol is warming, but it still goes down quite smoothly. Body is rather full, chewy. Long finish with some charcoal, light ashy, light bitterness. Really nice, but where’s the bourbon?

koshack (549) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 15, 2014
Ciemnobrązowe, zupełnie nieprzejrzyste. Piana brązowa szybko opadła. W aromacie wyczuwalne przede wszystkim słody, czekolada, lekki aromat świeżego kokosa. Zostawia na ściankach brązowe zabarwienie, typowo likierowy efekt. W smaku bardzo esencjonalne, dużo słodyczy, ale jednocześnie bardzo wysoka kwaskowość, która w mirę picia przestaje przeszkadzać. Piwo bardzo treściwe, syte. Niezły RIS, ale piłem lepsze.

daknole (10220) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Almost black, brown head. Odd in a way. Some good chocolate, lots of bourbon. But some tartness sneaks in, roast, overripe fruit and licorice.

Shared by martjoobolut, thanks! Ruby brown, brown head. Nose is alcohol, bourbon, wood, coffee, chocolate, malt, cherries, roasty notes. Flavor is bourbon, wood, leather, roast, milk chocolate, sherry, sour notes, sharp alcohol in the finish. Heavy and complex, very nice sipper.

Vaiz (3792) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle at a camping in Hungary. Black pour, thick tan head. Aroma of licorice, chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, vanilla, leather and slightly spicy peppers. Flavor is thick syrupy bitter malts with a chocolate sweetness. Very nice balance, huge body and very smooth. Great brew.

adasko (946) - Poznan, POLAND - JUN 29, 2014
It’s very very good. But it hardly taste like a beer any more for me. I felt only strong alcohol in it. It has a taste of vanilla and cherry. You can feel of course this bourbon barrel. Aroma is unbelievable rich. There is cherry, vanilla, chocolate and caramel. You can’t find there any hops, the bitterness is completely covered by alcohol.
