4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A: Dark black, tan head, nice alcohol legs.
S: Strong bourbon, coconut, vanilla, molasses, toffee, caramel, roasted coffee, and dark chocolate. Absolutely love this aroma more and more the more I smell it.
T: In the beginning the flavor strongly resembles the aroma - dark chocolate, molasses, dark coffee roast, vanilla, coconut, toffee, caramel. Then it goes more into the roasted malts special roast, roasted barley and get hints of the alcohol. The aftertaste is sweet with some residual sweetness with a mild aftertaste.
M: Full-bodied and thick, with calm alcohol burn for how much is in it.
O: Im not really into Bourbon aged beer but this one is just amazing. Saw a liquor store that still has a few cases left, might have to stock up a bit.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pitch black, chewy BBA goodness. Spice, licorice, vanilla, mocha, bark/earthy undertones. Very strong alcohol on the front and the back...just constant booziness actually. Love it.

Real good beer! Lots of bourbon taste, high abv (hidden well) and the color is perfectly black with thin light brown head.

Dark as night. Smells like a nice glass of bourbon, rocks. Taste like coffee, bourbon, bourbon barrels. Super creamy velvet finish. Donít know if there can be a better beer

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Dark as night. Smells of vanilla, bourbon warmth, a little coffee. Taste is the same; very intense and rich. The mouthfeel is incredible; intensely creamy and thick. The alcohol is quite warm but much more than welcome. I nursed one 12oz bottle for about an hour, but I wasnít such a good judge of how the flavors/aroma changed as it warmed because I was quite buzzed by the bottom of my glass. :)

On tap at Belmont Station in Portland. Black pour. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Very sweet with flavors of roasted malts and chocolate. Not as creamy as expected. Nice but too sweet.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
33cl in a Delirium Tremens glass. 2012 Vintage. Pours a thick black colour (second only to Black Albert). This truly is the best beer I have tasted (dare I say even better than Westvleteren 12). The amount of aroma and flavour really has to be experienced to be believed. The mouthfeel is thick and rewarding (and very sticky). The most flavoursome (Bourbon, smoke and dried fruits) of any beer I have ever tried or could even imagine. As a diehard Belgian fan I have to admit that this is the best beer I have ever tasted. Perfect.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz bottle into a snifter. Pours black with a small tan head that leaves light lacing. Smells of Bourbon, vanilla, oak and chocolate. Tastes of the same things. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy with good carbonation. Awesome barrel aged stout! Top notch all around. Lives up to its hype.
