3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Thanks, Kevin. Looks like Coca-Cola with no head. A couple small bubbles, maybe. Sticky toffee & caramel candy aroma with light fudge, molasses, raisins, figs, mild anise, & brown sugar in the aroma. Boozy, lots of brandy & alcohol that stings the nostrils. Very, very sweet, too. Taste is the same way. Boozy. Sweet. Huge amount of residual sugars. Dat brewing efficiency. Fusel heat, molasses, faint char & roast, cocoa dust black licorice, burnt caramel. Seems Serpent’s Stout is more relevant on the palate. A bit of raisin, brandy, brown sugar, toffee, anise, & char in the finish. Lingering heat from the booziness, leaves a sticky coating on your teeth. Not bad but really too boozy & sweet to enjoy in any decent quantity.

Sipped from a tulip glass. Pours thick and looks just like coffee. The nose is rich with roastiness, malt, mushrooms and mahogany notes. The layers of flavors are numerous with espresso, oak, cocoa, dates and rich brown booze. Wow this beer is beyond the limits

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
375ml bottle from Andersonville Wine & Spirits, cellar aged 4 months and shared with ck1. Pours is almost black, with light ruby highlights. WOW!, aroma has chocolate and cherries and vanilla. The bourbon is a bit understated in the taste; just smooth chocolate, caramel and molasses, with touches of fruit. Very, very nice! 17.1

Don’t know why I haven’t had this sooner. Pours black with only a wisp of bubbles around the edge. Delicious bourbon nose, toffee, dark fruits, and oak. Body is thick and surprisingly smooth. Stout flavors meld well with the barrel aging. Very very nice.

Väldigt kraftig och komplex arom. Mörk frukt, kanske lite russin. Väldigt fyllig kropp.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Opaque hue with fizzy brown hue that held a ring. Aroma is coffee, cola, vanilla, toffee, plums, caramel, raisins, ethanol. Mouthfeel is great with a full body and soft carbonation. Taste is sweet initially with a nice astringent bitterness in the following and an ethanol finish. Overall this is a really nice brew.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle vintage 2014. Pours almost pitch black with a reddish edge, and an oily, brownish head. Aroma has huge bourbon, gun powder, licorice, caramel, port wine, chocolate, syrup, dried fruits and much more. Taste is pretty boozy and bourbon up front. Nice roast, nice caramel, lots of dark, dried fruits. ends off with sweet licorice and rhum-like sweetness. Fat, full body, and a fairly low carbonation. This is a treat!
