0.65l bottle from Ølbutikken shared with Bergen Beer Geek Tasting Crew. Have been looking forward to this for quite some time now. Actually had a couple of dreams about opening this one, so this is hopefully going to be great! It pours this deep deep dark - near black - body with a medium sized quickly sideclenshing chocolaty head. The aroma? Oohh, the aroma. Just fantastic! Roasted sweetness topped with vanilla, bourbon, wood, dark sweet Belgian chocolate, caramel, rum raisins and tones of dark nuts. Just amazing. The carbonation level is average to soft and it has a fantastic thick, rich and chewy mouthfeel. The flavors? Oh, the flavors.. It’s just so concentrated and almost unrealistic. Chocolate, bourbon, wood, vanilla, alcohol, roasted dark goodies, concentrated dark dried fruits and the aftertaste? Don’t get me started on the aftertaste! Warming as hell with a fantastic dark and chocolaty vanilla mindblowing experience. What a beer. What a beer. 30.12.2011

2010 bottle shared with bytemesis, thanks! Black pour, small brown head. Prominent sweet vanilla aroma, chocolate/roast. Sweet flavor, cherry, vanilla, bitter roast, cocoa, boozy. Tasty for sure, alcohol tends to quickly drive out the interesting flavors.
