Thanks to my good friend Mike. Pours thick and black with a nice tan head. Aroma of whiskey, chocolate, malt, and some wood. Flavors were the reason I like BA’d beers so much, whiskey, sweet malt, toasted nuts.

Bomber (white cap). Dark cherry oxidation aroma with rich chocolate, faint toffee, boozy swirls of smooth bourbon and sweet sherry, musty oak, and a hint of spoiled rhubarb. Pours murky black topped by the tiniest mocha ring. The taste is quite smooth with burnt biscuity malt holding sway at first before baker’s chocolate, chalky loam, a touch of earthy hops, and sweet finish of well-aged moderate bourbon and old oak. Heavy body that leaves a light coating inside the mouth: the finish is initially sweet but turns mildly dry near the end. A splendid BA stout that’s quite smooth.

Pitch black colored, small dark brown creamy head, only a ring, not very lasting. Aroma is chocolate, roasted coffee, strong oak notes and some vanilla. Taste is medium to strong sweet chocolate, roasted malt and coffee, vanilla and again strong oaky-whisky character. Dry bitter chocolate finish and aftertaste. Boozy with alcohol heat. Full bodied, creamy, low carbonation. Strong and heavy stuff, reminiscent of whiskey, made for sipping!

Bottle from Vinmonopolet på Aker Brygge, Oslo. Pours pitch black, with a small dark brown head that shrinks but never quite diminishes. Some decent lacing as the glass is rotated as well. Good strong aroma, with roasted malts, buttery sweetness and an alcoholic scent of whiskey. Very oily and thick mouthfeel. On the tongue the incredible sweetness strikes you at first, buttery, brown sugar and vanilla. But soon there are notes of burnt wood, chocolate and roasted malts. In the finish the whiskey barrels will show their presence and some salty notes are noted too. This beer is incredible, and gets better as you finish it.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy dark brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque dark black brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was roasted malt and dark malt. The vinous semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a mellow bourbon aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of roasted malt whiskey vinous toasted malt dark malt and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

Quite nice. Lots of roast with some dark chocolate. Barrel well integrated but still shows presence. Black pour with mocha head. Some caramel. Bittersweet finish. Bottle.

The body is somewhere between brown and black,
Very well carbonated.
The taste offers lots of coffee with a hint of vanilla. Unlike many other BAs the taste isn’t dominated by the bourbon barrels,

650ml bottle pours a thick black color with a little bit of head. The whiskey over powers a little. One nice malty flavors. Smooths out with some time to breathe.
