A really great beer, the coffee harmonizes well with the bourbon character and yet creates something completely different from a KBS or BCBS, has a weirdly "light" character by comparison, I don’t even know. Thanks Colin.

MrHangover (2449) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle, thnx to Kermis. Pours a pitch black, headless beer with no light shining trough. Aroma is great, lots of bourbon, vanilla, caramel, oak and some booze. Flavor is very sweet, again loads of chocolate and bourbon present alongside some nice vanilla. Aftertaste is very sweet, chocolate, vanilla. This beer has loads of sweet characters, well balanced and it’s a great drinking experience. Very nice!

kermis (4750) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JUN 25, 2014
Bottle shared thanks to trade with Alen. Pours near black with a ring beige head. Aroma of massive bourbon, roast, vanilla, fudge, dark fruits, boozy barrel and wood with a touch of coffee. Flavour is light heavy sweet and bitter. Wood and barrel notes really coming out in the palate with a mouthfeel like crude oil. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Really excellent!

Pyrmir (3198) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2014
500 ml bottle, thanks Johan! Black with tiny brown head, leaves good lacing. Aroma thick, coffee, bourbon, wheat, tar, leather, grain dust and faint spicy rye notes. Taste is lighter than expected, grain dust, bourbon, chocolate, alcohol, wood with a finish with bourbon and warming alcohol.

mcberko (5931) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2014
500mL bottle, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks a lot, Dany), pours a motor oil black with a small light brown head. Aroma brings out bourbon barrels, a little vanilla, and significant coffee notes - very elegant and complex aromatics. Flavour is supremely complex, with remarkably deep bourbon notes, followed by coffee and a touch of vanilla. Doesn’t get much better integrated than this. The bourbon is certainly dominant, but it is in no way boozy or single-flavoured. The coffee is well-integrated all the same -- probably has faded a touch since bottling. Finishes a tad too sweet, but not too cloying. All in all, another excellent beer from the best brewery around.

douglas88 (5789) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Awesome bottle thanks to Todd. Pours a dark brown color with a medium white head. A big boozy bourbon nose. The flavor is hot bourbon, oak, mellow grains, coffee, lactose, sweet vanilla. So yeah, this is awesome! Not a big roasty beer, more sweet.
