Bottled 375ml. -from bierkompass.de; Birthday gift from my girlfriend.
Pitch black coloured, rich dark browh head, coffee nose with notes of smoke. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate and dried fruits with notes of wiskey and wood. Quite strong alcohol feel in the finish but otherwise well balanced beer.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by Thomas - Plan b, thank you so much!
Pours pitch black with a dense long lasting brown head.
Nice smooth aroma of roasted malt, caramel, oak, dark chocolate, whiskey, vanilla and a little bit of dark fruits.
The flavour is sweet with dark roasted malt, chocolate, whiskey, oak, a faint tartness and a present alcohol note.
Much better than the org. version - smoother, with more depth and with a less alcohol dominated flavour, but it is still a little to sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Courtesy CheeseMan. White wax dipped 375ml bottle. Best by 07/15/2019. Pours nearly pitch black, showing an extremely dark mahogany tint at the far outer edge. A small but lasting head of smooth, dark brown froth leaves behind dense sheeting that breaks apart into thick, spotted lacing. The nose is initially sweet, big on raisins and other dark fruits, showing notes of licorice, burnt sugars, and French vanilla. Lightly charred barrel notes impart a bit of brininess and peat, along with a boozy overtone. Flavors sweet sweet dark chocolate syrup with a hint of soy, along with vanilla, candy, and loads more dark fruit. The barrel again asserts itself on the finish, imparting an earthy, peaty, outright hot finish. Carbonation is pretty low, and the body is mouth coating, sugary, and warm. I couldn’t drink very much of this. It’s an intense beer, and the whiskey barrel actually detracts from the base beer, in my opinion.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Big black pour with dark brown highlights and a frothy brown head that lasts a while. Nose is a little salty with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, iodine, smoke, roasted malt and a hint of soy sauce. The flavour is more chocolatey and malty but is still very roasty, with some saltiness and a hint of earthy mushrooms. Thick, slightly syrupy mouthfeel which is also very dry, almost ashy, with surprisingly high carbonation and a fair amount of alcohol warmth and a dry, bitter finish that lasts ages. Overall this is probably slightly better than the regular Black, the barrel conditioning giving it more complexity without dominating or detracting from the original.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma has a big amount of coffee. Yoy feel notes of chocolate, malt whiskey, licorice and dark berries. It’s tarry black with a thich, brown foam sticking to the sides of the glass. It’s tastes stongly of coffee, and there is a honey-sweetness. You also have the whiskey notes from the aging, dark chocolate. The beer is really, really heavy. I suggest that it is shared with one or more good friends.
