The Jack Daniels is present and gives great taste to this beer. This is an Emelisse White Label winterstout so talking about all the other things seems like a waste to me.
At the Winterbier festival in Gouda, 2012.

Sampled @ PINT Winterbierfestival, Gouda 2012. Pitch black colored beer with a slightly brown lacing on top. Smell burned malts and clearly wood. Taste roastyness, burned malts, whiskey, slightly alcohol. Full flavoured, good mouthfeel. Medium carbonation, full body. Lovely!

Small, tannish head over black beer with brown lining. End of bottle fully yeast-filled. Strong roasted nose with outspoken ureum aromas, and drying grass. Coffee, hints at spirit. Again very roasted with roasted barley sourish imprint, finish being sweetish-bitter. Peppery character, lots of roasted coffeebeans. Bitter chocolate retronasal, carrying a long-lasting roastiness into the aftertaste, with much alcoholwarming. Velvety-rich, viscous feel. Pretty well-balanced for such an outspoken beer. Many thanks to Kees!

On tap at PINT Winterbierfestival ’12, ABV 10%, and Jack Daniels Barrel Aged. Black colour, no head. Aroma of JD, vanilla, Dutch liquorice, roasted malts, light herbal and sweet. Flavour is herbal (like Jagermeister) liquorice, hard roasted malts, creamy bourbon, some coffee, vanilla, light herbal roasted bitter finish. Medium to fullbodied. Lovely beer.

UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 Dead, black, cold, no head. Like coke. Cacao, nuts, very herbal - juniper berries, wooden. Dry, solid, but a bit watery taste. Nice drink, not a big fan though. Certainly enough going on here. (At Pint Winterbier Festival 2012)
