The bourbon, the smoke, the chocolate, all of it blends well in this dark beer. Hints of Worcestershire.

Sampled draft @ Borefts 2013. Black with no head. Nose is huge sweet bourbon, vanilla, oak, hint soy sauce & roast. Taste is sweet bourbon, touch soy & berries, brown sugar, caramel, roasted malts, faint smoke & coffee. Creamy & flat. Nice but I liked the 2 other versions more.

caesar (4713) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2013
Bottled, date sept 17 2013, large sample. Dark color, short brown lacing. Aroma of heavy roasted malts, chocolat, biscuit, vanilla, hint of tar and leather as well, some oak wood. Like a big bourbon impy should smell. Very creamy body. Quite some sweetness of vanilla, but also sweet chocolatey malts, fruity bitterness. Wonderful thick palate, a bit boozy perhaps. Seems to be much better from bottle than from tap actually, which was good but not as splendid as it is now. Superior stuff.
