Good thing this one smells good. Pours a dark brown with a tan head with an aroma of fig, caramel, bourbon, and sugar. Taste is like candied burnt coffee beans with a hint of bourbon. Not much to this, definitely better options within this style.

Bra exempel på när man vinner på fatlagring. Stor skillnad mot den vanliga gonzo, dock inte testad parallellt

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Brian - thanks! Black pour with an overly aggressive brown head of foam. Aroma is dry whiskey with chocolate and roast and a bit of sweet malt in the finish. Taste is clean whiskey with roast, chocolate, mild alcohol spice, and a peppering of darker malt notes including raisin. Mouthfeel seems thin. Not a huge whiskey fan but this was a nice enough beer.

almost black colour, medium brown head; aroma of roasted malt, ash, coffee, liqueur made from herbs and oak barrel; taste of herbs, chocolate, alcohol and roasted malt - not bad, but a bit too syrupy and herbal...

Poured dark oily as midnight whit a fine creamy beige head. Aroma of cherries and dark chocolate, tobacco, wood, oak and ash, lurking herbs in the background. Oily mouthfeel with alcoholic fruits, cherries, cocoa and dark chocolate, tobacco and leather, ash again. Fine, powerful brew;-)

Split a 750ml bottle with mcart034 a week or so ago. Poured a really dark, motor oil color, smooth, and vibrant with a nice, tan, creamy-looking head. Aroma had plenty of oak and vanilla notes, roasted qualities to it - with a coating of bourbon throughout the sniff. Flavor was nice, rich bitter chocolates, with roasted malts, oak, vanilla and bourbon. Alcohol is present, but is very nicely mellow throughout - not harsh at all.
