UPDATED: SEP 24, 2012 Bottle, at HaandFestival 2012. It’s a black one, or at least dark, dark brown, and it’s topped by a minimal-sized, dark beige head. Chocolate, some coffee and roasted malts and a little touch of alcohol in the aroma. It’s rather sweetish on the palate, oily, smooth and full-bodied, with chocolate and some coffee and roasted malts. Lightly warming on the palate. A bit one dimensional maybe, but damn enjoying. Rating: 9-4-9-4-17-4.3. 120505

Bottle. A dark brown one, almost clear, and with a small, light tan head. Rather boozy nose with roasted malts, coffee and some soy sauce. Roasted, coffee-ish flavor with some salty soy sauce. Caugh medicine. Full-bodied, lightly warming, quite smooth. Lasting finish. Well, it’s a fine beer, but sort of one dimensional, and not my favorite. I can’t really put my finger on it though. Looking back at my previous rating, it puzzles me even more. 120817

330ml bottle from Bieresgourmet.be

Pours pitch black with virtually no head at all. Aroma of sweet vanilla whisky notes, wood, oak, roasted malts and sweet sugary notes. Taste is smooth and oily with some sweet vanilla oaky notes and hints of whiskey. Finish is smooth and silky, no carbonation and only light roastiness. Alcohol and whisky warms in the finish. Smooth barrel-aged IS.

LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle, thanks to MrHangover! Black with a porous light brown head. Quite light aroma with fruity whisky, some alcohol. Taste: whisky, red berries like rowan berries, chocolate, light licorice, sourish like hard lemon candies, dry finish. Full-bodied. Unbalanced, but quite nice. It might do well with some aging.

erickok (5467) - Leuven, BELGIUM - JUL 30, 2012
A very dark black body and creamy tan head. Rich matly aroma, milk chocolate, bourbon, sticky fruit and some alcohol. Rich taste, but the barrel aging makes it a bit thin. Bit milky mouthfeel. Sweaty overall feel. Alcoholic aftertaste. A very good base beer but the barrel aging doesn’t improve it for me. (33cl bottle)

Bottle 33 cl. Pours black without a head and with an aroma of sweet and roasted malts, chocolate and ripe cherries. The taste is full-bodied and dominated by roasted malts with hints of whiskey, espresso, toffee, overripe fruits and ice-cream. Very nice!
