robinvboyer (4106) - Sturgeon Falls, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 4, 2011
Cask days 2011. Typical pour, big bourbon woody aroma. Loads of burnt malt, soy, and coffee, with that typical trois mousquetaire sweetness to the malt profile. Light fruit, and quite a bit more roasted malts. The finish is quite sweet, and woody with a little vanilla. The more is warms the boozier it gets and whoa does the bourbon really come through and overpower. Nice stuff but a little rough around the edges.

Bottle shared at the harvest festival and another strange one but in a pretty good way. The barrel characteristics were very light with small bourbon and vanilla notes. The dry hopping made this weird i think. Citrus and dank grass fight a bit with the roasty chocolate notes.

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.

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).

Bottle 750ml. [2010 version,412/700] Pours very dark brown with a pretty low beige "head". Minimal to no lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, wood, dark fruits, caramel. Taste is of bourbon, wood, dark fruits, caramel. Palate: Full bodied. Low, but existing carbonation. Overall: A tad heavy/swilly, but not cloying. Better than what I remembered.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottled, 75 cl. Clear black with a small, almost non existent head. Roasted nose, licorice, oak, a whiff of smoke. Flavor is sweet deep roasted, very sugary, thick, leading to fruity hoppy, alcoholic, ashy finish.

SlackerMads (2819) - DENMARK - 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.

UPDATED: JUN 3, 2013 750 ml bottle (2011 edition) from Boîte à Bières (many thanks, P-A). Pours black with an orangeish tint. Very short-lasting beige head, leaves no lacing. Smell is bourbon whiskey, vanilla, wood. Taste is dark cherry, figs, strong chocolate, cocoa, roasted, port wine, wood, bourbon whiskey. Some fruity, lemon and grapefruit bitterness. Leaves a lingering roast, wood, smoked and hazelnut taste in mouth. Light bodied, velvety mouthfeel. Carbonation is almost imperceptible. Felt like having the best port wine of my life. This is a top notch beer ; unfortunately, compared to the "regular" version, it seems to have lost a lot of its body, and the carbonation also seems to have suffered, as well as the head. Regardless, I would recommend it to anyone, and would be delighted to try the 2010 version. June 3, 2013 update 750 ml bottle from czar (2010 edition - thus, aged almost one year since its purchase in July 2012) - thanks a million, mate. Pours pitch black with a nice beige head (surprisingly much longer-lasting than expected) that leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is smoke, wood, dark chocolate, hazelnut, coffee. Flavor is dark chocolate, coffee, roasted hazelnut, wood, smoke, black cherry, dates, figs, coconut. Finish is roast, hazelnut, dark chocolate, coffee. Lingering corn and bourbon flavors. Medium to strong body, sticky and oily mouthfeel. Weak carbonation. Very, very, extremely, unbelievably solid sh*t. If that beer were a woman, I would indulge in the most sinful of acts with it. I would probably sell my soul for an opportunity to bathe in it. If heaven tastes as good as that lager, I am ready to go. If you got a bottle you want to get rid of...call me.
