Ungstrup (29837) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 4, 2012
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a huge very dark brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, dark bitter chocolate, wood, bourbon, and dextrose. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of alcohol, roasted malt, and dextrose, as well as medium notes of dark bitter chocolate, bourbon, and wood, leading to a dry, very bitter, and alcholic finish. A bit too boozy for my liking.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 3, 2012
Bottle 37,5 cl. Courtesy of yespr. Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Lovely clean Bourbon aroma that overpowers most of the roast. Quite some booze up there too. Rich body with heavy roast and dark dried fruit. Lots of oak and Bourbon, but get’s really, really hot and hard to drink towards the finish. I’d like to try this with some more age on it, hopefully the edges have smoothened somewhat. 030412

Bottle @ Fonefan tasting. Nice head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are alcohol, wood, bourbon, roast malt, bitter chocolate, vanilla and fruits. Original version is way better than this one.

BeerCast_Rich (1891) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2012
[375ml bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk] Where to start with this one? Black as night, with a thick creamy beige head. Lovely coconut aroma, oak and some alcohol. First sip, alcohol hits you straight between the eyes - an enormous boozy slap. Extremely hot - woody bourbon comes in halfway through once the burn fades. Many bourbon aged beers you get the oakiness on the finish, but in this one it overtakes you at the 50m mark and beats you to the tape [30032012]

Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 31, 2012
Thanks Craig for sharing this bottle. A black beer with a decent tan head. Aroma of roasty malt, chocolate, coconut, bourbon and oak. Similar flavours with lots of bourbon and some oak again. Lingering coconut, oak and alcohol. Moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle. Nice but a bit too much bourbon for my tastes.
