Sweet stewed apples aroma graciously welcomes my tired self to. The head disappears in a minutes but starts off with a lovely, creamy brown. The complex notes of the aroma also include a bit of molasses. Sweet beer dominated by molasses and caramel. A hint of anise almost like an after thought. The beer is very smooth on the palate. Very drinkable. The effervescence introduces a lot of depth and enjoyment. Can't believe it's a 10% ABV beer since it feels so drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice thick black appearance with a tan head. This has all the classic roast malt flavours, slight mocha and just enough bitterness to steer away from sickly. awesome.

Tasting at ChrisOs. Opaque dark brown beer, little pale tan head. Palate is slightly soft but with a crispy trailing edge. Creamy dark malt, a little dry chocolate. Something tangy in the middle. Subtle fruit underneath. Finishes light and creamy. Hides the abv well although I didn’t notice any bourbon.

Cory (295) - , California, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Bottle. Aroma strawberry fruit leather, lighter than expected, very dark brown, tan head, little hoppy on the back end. The Coffee notes come through once it warms up a little. Very enjoyable, a little weird.

Boutip (4637) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2013
Bottle (2011 version): Poured a deep black color porter with a large brown foamy head with good retention and some light lacing. Aroma if a complex mix of dark chocolate notes with light traces of vanilla and some clear notes of Citra which brings out some notes of dill that that work that well. Taste is also a weird mix between some black chocolate and light dry roasted malt notes with some very subtle trace of vanilla which clash with green hoppy notes of Citra with underwhelming notes of dill. Body is full with somewhat of an oily texture and good carbonation with no apparent alcohol. I ma probably going against the grain on this one but way too much Citra for my taste which kind of doesn’t hold well against the black chocolate and bourbon notes. Also the second use of the bourbon barrel leaves very subtle notes of bourbon which could be more pronounced.

Bouteille 750ml (2011 - 321/700). De couleur noire-brune et opaque. Nez boisé (fût de bourbon), de malt rôti, moyen de fruits (raisins, notes de cerises noires), léger de chocolat noir, de vanille, de houblon herbeux et d’alcool liquoreux ainsi que des notes de caramel toffee et de café. Moyennement ronde en bouche avec un pétillement doux ainsi qu’une texture liquoreuse. Moyen goût fruité (raisins, notes de cerises noires, traces de prunes) accompagné d’un moyen goût boisé (fût de bourbon), d’un léger goût de vanille et des traces de réglisse noire lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût de malt rôti, un moyen goût de chocolat noir ainsi que des notes de caramel toffee et traces de mélasse terreuses. Parallèlement, l’on retrouve un léger goût d’alcool liquoreux réchauffant accompagné d’une légère amertume de houblon herbeux jusqu’en finale. Post-goût long, léger-moyen amer de rôti, de chocolat noir, léger d’alcool, de houblon herbeux, de fruits (moût de raisins et de cerises) ainsi qu’avec un moyen-léger goût boisé (fût de bourbon).

SlackerMads (1419) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Pitch black with a small light brown head. Aroma is dark roasted malt, plums, chocolate, light coffee, licorice. Taste is close to heavy sweet and medium bitter. Medium body, oily texture, soft+ carbonation. Roasted light sweet and dry finish. Could do with more body and something to balance the sweetness.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - MAR 1, 2013
Black colour, small brown like head. Pleasant aroma of roasted malt with licorice and some dark fruit along with it. Good mouthfeel. Roasted maltiness in the flavour along with some licorice and bit chocolate. Sweet. Pleasant.
