2007 vintage. Pours deep brown-black with absolutely no head. Bold bourbon aroma right off the bat, with vanilla, caramel, and dark chocolate all coming through. Flavor is more of the same bourbon, chocolate, caramel, smoked malt, and a nice added note of coffee. Alcohol is hidden nicely. Flavor is very strong and sweet, like a bourbon with chocolate and coffee added. Delicious.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: OCT 6, 2009 Wow what a beer, heavy on the alochol but nicely hidden. Has a very up front nose and taste that assults the senses, but the mellows out a bit and give way to a pleasing vanilla woody finish. need a few years to age to fully appreciate it. Too strong fresh, a sipper for sure.

Black and looks like motor oil. Initially not all that intense but as you swallow the vanilla/ bourbon begins to hit. Very coffee and dark roasted notes as well.

Canít say much more than anyone else. Pours black. No head. Strong aroma of coco, malt and bourbon. Flavor hits you intensely and then mellows. Starts sharp with bourbon and vanilla and then mellows into a dark roast. You can taste and even smell the alcohol. Not as oily as I would have liked. It doesnít coat the glass like a Dark Lord. Nice!

WOW 100! I was thinking about what I was gonna do for one hundred, I was in Oliver Tís and I saw this. I have been wanting to try it for a long while so perfect! Absolute tar like pour. Huge aroma of cherries, slight vanilla and bourbon. The flavor is amazing. its so thick on the tounge. Cherries and vanilla up front and then sweet coconut and awesome notes of the bourbon.The finish is where the malts and toffee rear their head and a touch of bitterness. Wonderfuly balanced. The alcohol is there especially witht the hint of bourbon to help it along. This is special and I am damn proud to have had it for my hundrenth. Cheers ratebeerians!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours almost pitch black with a very small dark tan head that fades very quickly. Aroma of sweet cocoa powder, slight coffee, and bourbon. Flavors of dark chocolate, sweet maltiness balanced by a roasted grain. The bourbon then comes on very powerfully, but its not just bourbon flavored, which I like. Finishes with cocoa powder and vanilla and a strong alcohol burn. Perfectly carbonated, with a thick chewy body and a strong alcohol burn. very good beer and the 13% abv is hidden well. Perfect dessert dinner

Bottle@home, 2007 vintage.
Apperance: Darkbrown, almost black. It has a creamy, beige, head that leaves no trace on the glass
Aroma: Big nose on this one consisting of vanilla, bourbon, coffee and chocolate.
Flavor: Intense flavor of Roasted malts, Vanilla, Chocolate, Ripe fruit with a hint of licorice, spices and alcohol.
Palate: Liquid is very thick and carbonation is low. Very filling and huge in all aspects. This is a sipper folks!
One of the best beers iíve ever tried. It has certain similarities to the beer Kaggen - Stormaktsporter by Nšrke Kulturbryggeri but itís not as balanced. You canít miss out on this one!

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Pours a thick, dep brown/black, with a nice mocha head. Roasty aroma heavy on mal with some potentially cloying qualities. Bitter chocolate shavings and roasted coffee. Flavor is rich and heavy, quite good. Smooth, creamy bitter chocolate and a bitter finish heavy on roasted coffee beans. Finish is hot with a touch of harsh bourbon, which is this beerís weakest trait. No my favorite style but a fine example. Thanks Malcolm!
