4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Black beer with a quick disappearing brown lacing.
The aroma is quite in balance and very interesting! Nice marriage between roast, bourbon, coffee, cacoa/dark chocolate and some vanilla tints.
Flavour is good but the aroma made me think the flavour would be more intense, which is not...
Flavour is nice bitter, roast, coffee and dark chocolate with a hint if alcohol/warmth. Lighter tone of bourbon and vanilla than in the aroma... Some praline, earthy roast and malt roast...
Aftertaste is bitter, roast, coffee, some dark chocolate/cacoa and earthy malt roast...
Low carbo, creamy to silky mouthfeel, close to full bodied.
Nice beer but damn expensive!

Super boozy scent, but it doesn’t transfer to taste, thankfully. An easy booze bourbon warms the back of the throat and not overpowering. Dark fruit scent like cassis. Some dark bitter cocoa and tobacco with overly ripe dark fruits like plum. Almost a wine port in there. Dark black, no carbonation. Very nice. The ABV is apparent, but drinkable. Bottle

Bottle shared by Erwin Van Moll @ Brewpub Van Moll. Opaque very dark brown to black color, medium sized dense brown head that lasts for quite a while. Aroma is malts, dark malts, roasted malts, bourbon, some coffee, wood and more sweet vanilla bourbon. Delicious. Taste malts, roasted malts, vanilla, vanilla bourbon, lightly wood, some coffee again, sweetish vanilla bourbon, roasted malts mixed with bourbon vanilla sweetness and liquor perfectly and a perfect, suitable bitter finish. Absolutely delicious. Full body, suitable soft carbonation, oily texture. Absolutely delicious!

Murky muddy brown with a small latte cap. Nose of bourbon, vanilla, Starbucks, spicy green pepper, and cocoa. Similar flavor with the green pepper more dominant. Love the deScription...just wish this one fit the bill.
