4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Flaska från 2012. Svart öl med ett lättare brunt skum. Doft av malt, choklad, lättare rostade toner och bourbon med inslag av vanilj. Samma återkommer i smaken. Mjuk och balanserad trotts den höga alkoholhalten. Lagringen har nog bidragit till detta.

From tap at hoppyloft brussels, aroma is huge, bourbon, molasses, toffee, caramel, alcohol. Taste is very sweet, very thivk smooth mouthfeel. Amazing bourbon stout finish. Prefer when it’s aged more, 2014 bottles are an even bigger blast.

Pitch black color with brown foam head. Round vanilla barrel nose and light smoke. The taste is spikey with a light chili spiciness, vanilla and smoke. The aftertaste is calm, roasty and with a bit of chocolate.

Jet black pour with a thin, brown head. The aroma bourbon, molasses, vanilla, wood, and a hint of raisin. It has a full body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is roasted with some dark fruit flavor and a warm finish. This beer is amazing. Happy Birthday to me!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a trade with sneakychi. Black color with beige head. Aroma is wood, vanilla, ash, booze. Taste is chocolate, spicy, boozy, roasted malts and bitterness as well. Medium carbonation. A completely overloaded Bourbon Stout with a good balance that has more harmony than it should have. Excellent.

Bottle, courtesy of SinH4, 2012 vintage, many thanks! Lots lots of sweet dessert, pastry, berries, vanilla wood. Boozy in a good way, ashy too, also in a good way. Yes, bourbon too. Well balanced, way way more than you would expect from such a complexity and extremity. What. A. Beer!

At home. Bottle kind courtesy of Maakun! Bottle from 2013. Black with quickly dissolving tan head. Deep roasted sweet chocolate malts, bourbon, very syrupy, underlaying melasse base, sweet sweet bourbon, light spices and vanilla. Very sweet! Texture is like a chocolate bavarois with bourbon. Quiet carbonation. Very thick syrupy finish and intense toffee aftertaste. Daaaaamnn. Nice! And big thanks for the opportunity!

Bottle 2013 shared, massive thanks to Santa bytemesis!! Tried head to head with the 2014 coffee. Black with brown head that lasts about 30 seconds and leaves no trace. Massive bourbon, vanilla, sweet chocolate, dried red fruits, toffee, massive chocolate candy, some spices, light butter. Just loads of sweet desert notes. Very sweet with very light roasted bitter finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Massive. Has better desert notes than the coffee, but is also quite a bit sweeter, almost to the point of being too sweet. Classic.
