Bière noire peu mousseuse. Le nez semble bien mûr (fruits?) avec une touche de bois mouillé, de café frais et de raisins. En bouche, la bière est boisée – tel qu’entendu –, corpulente et presque vineuse. Le café, qui est très présent dans la version régulière, laisse ici sa place aux miracles du fût de bourbon. L’alcool, qui titre pourtant à 9.5%, se présente avec douceur et légèreté. Ce produit met réellement en valeur les atouts d’un vieillissement en fût. Je l’écris souvent, mais ici plus que jamais, le dosage et l’équilibre y sont pour beaucoup.

Bottle from SlovakSniper - thanks! Pours black with thin brown head. Aroma of coffee, molasses, light vanilla/bourbon notes. Taste of coffee, chocolate, licorice, light vanilla, with a dry roasty finish; delicious. Smooth thick body. Good, but I’m not sure it’s any better than the non-bourbon version. Would need to do a side-by-side some time.

Cellared for three years then traded to me. Thanks gluglugburp. Pours a deep dark brown without any head. Initial aroma is of dark chocolate, well aged barrel character, some nuttiness. The coffee is long since gone here but the aroma is still grand. The taste is roasty and the bourbon is fully encorporated. The finish is mostly dry with a bitter black coffee taste. There is a slight astringency from the bourbon. Oily mouth feel with good carbonation after 3 years.

This one poured a straight black color with a decent tan head. 2010 bottle btw. Aroma was loads of oak and Bourbon, light coffee and milk chocolate. Flavor was similar bit the mellowed big roast led way to big fudgy chocolate laiden with tons of Bourbon Really nice stuff.

12oz bottle pours an oily, opaque black with some creamy, beige head. Nose has mostly coffee at first, then vanilla, malt, licorice, caramel, some light toasted wood. Flavor is sweet, malty, chocolate, vanilla, cracker, brown sugar. Lightly hot, otherwise dry finish. Very well balanced.

Shared bottle at Edinburgh tasting. Pours deep amber with a small head. Aroma of dark chocolate, some sweet vanilla. Taste is boozy, thick mouthfeel,traces of bourbon, cocoa, a little too boozy for me.

Oily black with a short tan foam head. Aroma is strong coffee, barrel, chocolate and coffee. Delicious sweet vanilla, caramel, coffee taste. Hot bite of booze and fantastic bourbon barrel notes. Excellent.

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - JUL 19, 2013
Dense black pour with waterfall tan head. Flirty dark choc smooth coco nose. Peppery smattering carbonation weighed by a smooth oily light liquorice. Superb sweetness of a thickly dense brown sugar bourbon burn. Pudding flamed awesome.

Bottle, Gunnar Tasting
