3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours dark, unclear coffee in color with an easily dissipating grayish cocoa head, from the barrel aging. The aroma gives a bit of infection - wild yeast, and some roasted malts. The body is also thin, from the barrel aging I assume, and some flavors of for me, again, lightly infected yeast notes with carmel and roasted malts.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, thanks to Slovaksniper, pours a nice dark black, decent head, the was light tan, aroma was very sweet, lots vanilla and very bourbony, I think this beer would turn out really well with some age, it was a quite sweet at this stage, but overall a really solid offering

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Habité par une multitude de sucres, des figues aux noix de coco, du cuir au chocolat noir. Les tannins et l’alcool sont également présents. Un peu mince et volatile en bouche mais somme toute, une belle expérience.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle, thanks to tom10101, brewed March 2012. Dark brown with a blended mocha head that gradually settles to leave a nice layer across the glass. Semi-sweet and roasted malts, oddly enough a bit of salt, smoked trout, espresso, some light bourbon and oak, things are a bit muted overall. Moderate carbonation, slightly strange body which is both light and medium in nature (might be the affect of the bourbon aging), mild sweetness that disappears quickly to leave more of a bitter taste that becomes dry, leaving some cocoa, malts, peat and espresso.
