RasmusOtt (2082) - Aarhus, - APR 30, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 7, 2014 Oh yes! Pours pitch black with a picture perfect espresso brown head which last until the very end.. Aroma is just amazing and very complex. Espresso, weak coconut, earthy coffee, cocoa beans, light smokey, vanilla, dark dried fruits, sweet ripe cherries, fruity tobacco, weak leather, figs, liquorice, bourbon, dry wood, billard table and weak minerals. When this beer enter my mouth I get earthy coffee, espresso, vanilla, dry wood, dark dried fruits, saltyness, cocoa beans, strong english liquorice, billard table, tobacco and a pretty heavy bourbony alcohol touch but I do not think it is too much.

Superb beer. Pours a rich black tone with a small brownish head. Vanilla notes are predominate. The coffee flavor is perfectly balanced with a Bourbon note. Not too boozy, but the alcohol is present. Great beer.

puren (567) - Starogard Gd., POLAND - APR 30, 2016
Prezentacja:
czarne, piana bardzo skąpa, brązowa, szybko zostaje po niej tylko kilka bąbelków;
Aromat:
wódka, czekolada, likier, orzech laskowy, wiśnia, wanilia, drewno;
Odczucie:
ciało wysokie, oleiste, gęste, aż ciężkie, finisz czekoladowy, lekkie zaklejanie, silne grzanie w przełyku;
Smak:
czekolada, pralina alkoholowa, krótka intensywna kwaskowa paloność przechodzi w goryczkę, alkohol;
Ogólnie:
bardzo dobry RIS, ale alkohol jest zbyt wyraźny i w aromacie i w smaku.

UPDATED: APR 9, 2016 Aroma is impressive. Pretty dense and bitter. Taste is pretty unusual. Mainly, coffee plus a huge liquorice end to it. As the thing warms up, you can appreciate the maltyness and the powerful sugar in it. Overall, pretty smart beer.

BrettGT (88) - Aalborg, DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Aroma of figs, bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, slight red wine. Pitch black, quickly fading brown head. Medium plus sweetness of vanilla, figs, sweet chocolate. Medium coffee bitterness on the aftertaste. Super silky and smooth mouthfeel, full body, soft carbonation and long evolving finish of coffee, vanilla, toffee. Superb.

fkoolen (832) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 3, 2016
Bottle at home. Pours pitch pitch black, no head. Huge vanilla, sweet bourbon tones in the nose. Taste has milky coffee and chocolate, dried and red fruits, bourbon, vanilla, soft oak, alcohol warmth but very well balanced. Bitter finish, slightly sweet. Aftertaste lingers nicely. Big body, low carbonation, sickly palate. Very well executed.

Butelka 330ml. Kolor czarny, lekkie przebłyski ciemno-brązowe. Piana brązowa, oblepia mocno szkło nad taflą piwa. Dosyć przyzwoita jak na risa. Aromat: bardzo intensywna beczka, bourbon, czekolada, wanilia, lekko alkoholowe nuty. Smak: czekolada, cukierki "trufle" od firmy Odra, rozgrzewający alkohol, bourbon, lekki rozpuszczalnik(?). Bardzo dobrze pijalne, słodycz balansuje lekką goryczkę. Dosyć gęste, lepkie, pozostaje na ustach. Bardzo ciekawy ris.

Tiny little bottle. Tasted side by side with regular. Look very similar. Very strong aroma. Bourbon flavor but not a booze bomb at all. Its so nice to have a BA stout that has the flavors of the barrel and not flavors of the booze that was in the barrel. Rich and smooth just like the regular. Chocolate. Black like oil. No head. Thx bu11zeye!

Mikkeller George BA 9/05/24 No co tu pisać Aromat: Kilogram beczki, wanili, gorzkiej czekolady, słodkiej, mocnej kawy, intensywność mega Smak: oleiste, słodko kwaśne, bez wysycenia , posmak kawowy i gorzkiej czekolady, oblepia usta Podsumowując pije je juz któryś raz, nigdy sie nie zawiodłem, piłem tez zwykła wersje i chyba po tequlli ale nie zrobiły na mnie takiego wrażenia, choć sa dobre/ bdobre. Jak ktoś nie pił to gapa

the aroma is caramel and fruity with hints of roasted malt, brown sugar, port, vanilla, robust and brown chocolate... the taste is caramel and chocolate with notes of toast, dark fruits, coffee, vanilla, red wine, toffee and licorice... sweet, dry and warming aftertaste...
