Erzengel (7928) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - FEB 19, 2016
Great smooth and dark chocolate background. The whisky is smooth but soft, not much alcohol there. The stout is deep and roasty, but the whisky is not really here. The beer is - as usual - round and smooth with a nice chocolate aroma. But there I miss the whisky counterpart.

Bomber @ FiftyFifty Charity Tasting: Vintage 2012: Served in a taster: Black body with a light tan lacing. Aroma is a bit boring after all this violence: roast, light bourbon, liquorice, light vanilla... Flavour is roasty, honey, liquorice, some bitters, loght sweet tones like brown sugars... Aftertaste is roasty, whiskey/bourbon... Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, close to full bodied.

dfearnley (1826) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 2, 2015
Bottle to pint glass (BR/3 2012) One of my birthday beers. It’s been sitting in the cellar for 2.5 years. Caramel, rye, soy, molasses, treacle, sour blackcurrant, vanilla, and honey. Black with a thin, creamy, light tan head. Taste is caramel, toasted malt, soy, dark chocolate, and late bourbon sweetness and some bitterness. Wow...this was worth the wait, I think. I imagine this was too hot a couple years ago, but it’s now well balanced.
