Very dark brown with tan head. Little carbonation, not as much body as a stout ought to have, but with a touch of creaminess. Tastes of vanilla, milk chocolate, with mild bourbon edge. Clean finish. Lots of stouts better than this one.

Dark brown pour. Don’t see much head or lace so far. Aroma of oak, malt, coffee beans and hops. Flavor is the same, contributing vanilla and possibly some cacao. A touch of lemon zest at the end. Medium body, mild bitterness, medium duration, chewy texture. Good character to this stout! Still no lace.

Bottle. Sample at Voldby Ølmesse 2014. Jet black pour with a small dense head. Loads of milk chocolate, vanilla fudge and some light coffee. Pretty nice but a bit too sweet.

Pours oily, clear, very dark brown. Creamy, tan head. Aroma has roasted malt and oak. Flavour is roasted with vanilla and bourbon notes. Sweetness giving way to bitterness and light alcohol burn towards the finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Low but lasting creamy light brown head. Very dark red brown body. Roasted malt coffee liquorice vanilla aroma. Highly carbonated coffee liquorice vanialla flavor with a note of bourbon and a fair amount of hops bitterness. Alchol level seems just right. Very well balanced. Long finish.

Black beer with a thin beige head and a very smoky flavour. Flavour has a smoky flavour and vanilla-y malt. Light, sweet taste with a bit less body to it than I expected. Nice though.

Good stout with a slight taste of wood. Beautiful foam. easy creamy roasted coffee and whiskey flavors. A little cheating that its not barrel aged.

The oak barrel taste really comes out in the aroma and the taste. The taste is light and a good staple to have around.
