3/4/16 Chicago ($8 6 oz draft pour into snifter at Goose Island Brewpub Clybourn). 2013 - Black pour, tan lacing, no carbonation. Whiskey, oatmeal malt aroma. Whiskey prevalent aroma. Sweet tasting, perhaps a bit too sweet, whiskey, vanilla taste. Very smooth going down, very thin texture. Overall very good offering.

Hoprider (423) - DENMARK - NOV 15, 2015
From tap @ Goose Island Clybourn Pours: clearish black w dark beige foam at the edge of the glass. Nose: one of the most awesome noses I’ve come across. Sweet coffe caramel, sweet bourbon, vanilla and pie crust. Coffee and the sweetest licorice toffee. Taste: like BC barley wine but with more roasted malt. Damn! Like half proprietors / half BC Barleywine.. Imagine that. Texture: light carb. Rich oily texture. Finish: huge mouthcoating action. Vinous wood, coffee and bourbon. Endless aftertaste. This honours HP Lovecraft’s Call of Cthulhu beautifully

Bottle. Deep black and chocolate milk-thick, with no head to speak of. Heavy alcohol aroma. Smoky chocolate, lots of toast. Bitter espresso. Maple. Smooth oak. The flavor’s more oaty up front. Smooth sweetness: almond, vanilla, touches of brown sugar and toasted coconut. Light butterscotch with an almond finish. Despite the lack of head, the carbonation is at least mild. Noticeable alcohol burn. Sugar-heavy, medium-full body. Incredibly smooth flavor -- smells boozier than it tastes. Great blend, very easy to drink.

Vestergaard (1696) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle thanks to Derek and Mike!! Huge surprise! Pour is pitch black with a small, short lasting, brown head. Aroma has bourbon, vanilla, oak, chocolate, booze, roasty malts, dark dried fruits. Sweet bourbon. Taste is very elegant sweet, balanced by booze and bourbon/oak, fruity and with a dry bourbon finish. Greasy body, low carb

Bottle shared at pre-CBC tasting at Fermentoren. Pitch black pour with a mocha head. Lots of milk chocolate, vanilla fudge, caramel, bourbon, light roast with some savoury notes. Good stuff!
