@Basunen: vilken härlig doft av bourbon-fat. Smaken har en mycket god balans. Stora chokladtoner, vanilj, söt bourbon och kaffe. Härlig mjuk eftersmak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone ---- Soberness not garanteed!

Pours unclear thick but not quite murky with almost no head. Aroma is too light bringing light wafer like and slight vanilla spice but dies quickly. Flavors bring sweet and spicy and chocolatey balanced flavors, a bit of caramel but everything blends without anything in the forefront with spices balanced so well.

Bottle generously shared by Dak...AMAZING!!! So excited to try this one and it literally made my eyes roll back into my skull. What an incredible beer!!! Aroma of smooth bourbon, vanilla, and oak. Extremely fragrant and intoxicating nose that pulls your lips toward the rim of the glass. Rich fudge, molasses, brown sugar, and vanilla blast the palate with the bourbon very present but not at all distracting. The "hot" qualities of the alcohol have subsided and all that is left is the incredible flavor of the barrel. Incredibly balanced, the flavors married well and each seems to enhance the other. Creamy palate on this nearly black brew...this one lives up to its accolades!!!

UPDATED: OCT 2, 2013 22 oz bottle. BR 1, 2012 bottle. Opened in honor of the Breaking Bad finale. Pours pitch black with a small frothy head that fades to a ring. Great aroma of musty oak, vanilla, chocolate, caramel, toffee, tobacco, and molasses. Taste is moderately sweet and boozy. Lots of bourbon barrel flavor but it’s not harsh at all. Chocolate and caramel come through nicely, especially in the finish. Medium to thick body. This is a really good, smooth, boozy sipper. Nice balance in flavors.

bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Nose is rich chocolate and booze. Slight vanilla. Some roast. Lots of cocoa powder in the flavor. A little harsh. But ok.

This is a surprisingly fantastic beer. Really rich and heavy in cocoa, vanilla, oak, coffee, and just enough sweetness. Quite sweet in a good way and really great.

22oz bottle with purple wax. Pours a very deep caramel brown with a nice tan head, light lacing. Great nose of light bourbon notes along with vanilla, toffee and caramel. Nice and drinkable, not overbearing.

(22oz purple wax bomber #99/2009 thanks to ericandersnavy) Pours jet black with tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, dark roasted grain, dark fruit and light black licorice. Flavor is very much the same but twice as strong and a touch of honey. Mouth feel is heavy body with low carbonation and a creamy body. Overall, damned good stuff!
