22oz waxed bomber pours with a dark mahogany body supporting a mocha head of foam. The aroma offers up booze, roasted malts, chocolate brownie, kind of rye like whiskey notes and then more booze at the end of the draw. The taste hits all at once with dark roasted malts, chocolate, sweet whiskey, a mild tart like rye whiskey note and then earthy booziness. Another sip brings up some mild barrel wood char too. Pretty darn nice.

Thanks to richlikebeer. Pours coal black with aroma of vanilla, chocolate, dark fruit, and whiskey. Sweet flavor with vanilla, molasses, chocolate, and dark fruit with some wood and a solid whiskey background. Great beer!.

Koelschtrinker (11518) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 19, 2014
Malzig rauchiger, etwas schokoladiger Antrunk. Vollmundig, der Alkohol ist zum Ende erkennbar. Kann süß, eher trocken, die Aromen sind nicht so intensiv wie sie sein könnten. 9/11/11/11//11

"Overpriced? Yes. Really good? Yes. Not top tier like the Grand Cru or ECraig 20, but better than the Evan Williams or Old Fitz easily. Bigger, more dimensions too it - chocolatey, roasty malt. Lots of barrel influence. Vanilla and booze. Don’t think I’ve ever had a wheat whiskey, but this piques my curiosity."

maneliquor (3361) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle at Mane Liquor Eclipse tasting. 2012 version. Pours dark brown with a sticky tan head. Nose is very sweet vanilla, molasses, honey, treacle and a light whiskey bite. Taste is extremely sweet with loads of vanilla and thick, treacle-like honey. Very woody and slightly grassy with a bourbon driven finish. Quite a sharp kick to finish it off. So different to the previous brandy version. This is more like a mans drink rather than a hug the brandy version was. This has more happening with some spikes. A rollercoaster experience of a stout

2012 Bottle. Pour is hazy deep brown with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor of sweet whiskey, oak, vanilla, roasted malt, dark caramel, and slight licorice. Finish is sweet chocolate with some warming whiskey heat.

Bomber from Mikkeller webshop. Pours a black/dark brown with a tan head. Complex aroma of bourbon, booze, dark chocolate, vanilla, honey, coffee, plums, raisins and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is so silky and smooth. So well balanced, vanilla, bourbon, dark malts, light and dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, honey with a nice bitterness. Carbonation is on the lower side which imo does this beer justice, served it at around 12 degrees but even after it warmed up it was like cozing up to an old friend, didn’t want the bottle to end. So complex flavour but all the flavours marry and are so well balanced, they all play in harmony. Payed a hefty price for this but all worth it.
