4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Bottle @ SBWF 2012. Pitch black color. Small, foamy tan head appears. Wood, oak, mellow smoked malts, some roastiness and vanilla sweetness in aroma. Nice roast, mild licorice, oak, faint whiskey in flavor. Very smooth to drink. Well balanced. I like that all that oaky tar/oil in beer turns beer glass tan.

Bottle, shared @ Uiltje bar. Pours a pitch black, almost headless beer. Aroma of massive bourbon, caramel fudge, vanilla, molasses. Flavour is very sweet, lots of booze, very full, well balanced. The bourbon is well mixed there, awesome, full bodied and long aftertaste. Amazing stuff.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into a teku showing pitch black and no head.
The nose shows a lot of roasted malts, espresso and smoked bourbon notes. A nice big mix of greatness on the nose.
The palate is full bodied, slick, oily and light carbonated. The big roasted malts and espresso take most of the center stage. The bright oak supports the beer in the background with the bourbon smoked notes becoming apparent on the mid palate followed by an extremely smoky espresso finish. The lingering notes show a lot of the same toasted oak and bourbon once more. This is greatness in a bottle.

Bottle at home, 17th July 15. Black, rich and oily. Aroma is pleasant boozy, rich bourbon, coffee and dark chocolate. Taste is coffee, bourbon, vanilla, wow so smooth, bitterness on the finish. Oily, fatty slick palate. Great beer, hard to call between this and the calvados version, another fenominal stout from Mikkeller
