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.

Bottle shared by Jay at tasting at my house. Pours black with tan head. Nose/taste of bourbon, dark roasted coffee, roasted dark chocolate malts, vanilla and fudge brownies. Some oak. Medium body. Well balanced. One of the better beers of the night.

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.

Botella de 75cl.Aromas dulces que recuerdan a la compota de manzana Buena cabeza de un precioso marrón cremoso. Las complejas notas de aroma también incluyen un poco de melaza. Cerveza dulce dominados por la melaza y caramelo, con algo de ahumado al final.La cerveza es muy suave al paladar. La efervescencia introduce mucha profundidad y disfrute.Los 10 grados de alchol no se distinguen. Una cerveza muy apetecible.
