bytemesis (4245) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAY 3, 2014
Bottle with thanks to MrH! Pours opaque black with a medium creamy brown head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is rich whiskey, wood, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor follows, medium sweet, light bitter, wonderful blend of whiskey and stout base. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty hot, which is really the only minus to this outstanding beer.

Bottle shared by ygtbsm94 at the Aloft Post-Grand Tasting Bottle Share and Fart Off Competition. Thanks, Brad! Pours an opaque brown with a tan ring for a head. Looks tasty. Notes of oak, chocolate, toasted malts, nuts, brown sugar, tobacco, molasses, and a little soy. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a dry mouthfeel. Rich and roasty and good. Didn’t wow me, though.

>> Thanks you ygtbsm94 for the share! Rating #7600. Inky pour with tight mocha layer. Nose is warming brown alcohol, soy, salt, umami, molasses. Taste is spicy, rich chocolate mousse, fudge, spicy Mexican chocolate. Palate is spicy, wood fully integrated, no lemon, no paper, bitter balancing. Very nice. Thanks Brad for another milestone rating :)

JefVerstraete (1957) - Ghent, BELGIUM - FEB 24, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 23, 2014 Oily black colour, very thick dark brown foam. Very complex beer, very well balanced. Aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Also bourbon, but not overwhelming. Again a very good RIS from Emelisse.

Douberd (3051) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 23, 2014
Bottle at home, 330 ml, poured into a snifter. ABV 11% Pours a totally black beer with a thick, dark brown head, one good finger tall. Very good retention, medium lacing left around the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon but fainter than I would want, alcohol, some faint chocolate too. Great taste though, again the bourbon flavour not so intense but strong enough, roasted malts, traces of chocolate, alcohol barely notable on the finish but otherwise very well hidden, light acidity there too. Rich, full and smooth body, great carbonation, as much as needed. Surely among the top of all the White Label IRSs I had.
