4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Thanks to JorisPPattyn. 2012 Vintage. Bottle sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Blackish brown, small tanned head. Nose is liquorish, mocha, sweet candy, milk chocolate. Taste is boozy bourbon upfront, bourbon is not as pronounced as usual in USA beers, liquorish, bitter herbs, maple, finish is rather bitter. Liquorish, milk chocolate body. Pretty nice, I am not the biggest fan of liquorish & bitter herbs but I definitely enjoyed this one.

Cream head, fast gone over deep brown beer. Milkchocolate/praliné, tiny bit of wood. Chocolate, quite burnt/roasted. Vanilla comes out in the finish, certainly warming up, but nowhere the classical Bourbon onslaught. Well-bodied, quite slick, real chocolate in the aftertaste, well-carbonated. Nice one, especially in the balance. Many thanks to John H!

bomber to glass; rec’d in trade about a year ago. aged. nice aroma of dark fruits and roasted malt. dark pout. first thing that hits me in taste is over fizzy carbonation!? a sweet quad up front with too much yeast and carbonation - enjoyed the bourbon stout part of this more than the quad part; maybe should have been 70/30 the other way...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Clear dark-brown ale with flashes of copper and a small, fizzy, off-white head. The aroma is an interlaced assortment of caramel, vanilla, bourbon, toasted coconut and an unfortunate and seemingly misplaced lactic, yogurt-like component. Full-bodied with carbonation that is both fizzy and prickly. The flavor is sweet, boozy and mildly acidic. The light tartness seems misplaced and unintended. The crisp, snappy finish is flanked by warming ethanol that lingers a short while. This may be infected. If not, this is an interesting and enjoyable - although seemingly misguided - effort.

Draft at the 2nd Anniversary. Cola colored with a 1 finger tan head. Aroma is mostly dark fruits. Taste adds cherry and a chocolaty finish. Medium mouthfeel and solid carb. Ok but a little odd.

Bottle. Brown pour with an obnoxious light brown head. Super over carbonated. Sweet with caramel notes. Infected??

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
And off goes the cork, almost took my head off! Pours jet black with a big off white head. Aroma of bourbon, Belgian yeast and milk chocolate. Taste is lots of Belgian yeast, slight metallic note, coffee and milk chocolate. Not very exciting, over carbed.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle. Pours a deep dark brown color with a huge tan head. Very carbonated. Aroma of candied sugar, raisin, fig, alcohol, and slight vanilla. Taste basically follows the nose. Starts very sweet with lots of dark fruit, candied sugar, red grape, and finishes with a slight roasted coffee bitterness.
