500ml bottle.Pours a dark black with a thick brown head.Nose is coffee and bourbon...a strange and interesting combo.Taste is also very interesting with tons of coffee up front with sweet and oaky bourbon finish.What else to say but another great beer from Mikkeller.

Bottle. Poured a creamy dark black with a thin dark beige head. Nose is coffee, roasted malt with a hint of the bourbon barrel. If I had never had the base beer I would have just come out and said this is an amazing barrel aged beer, and it is. Both versions are excellent but it’s possible I may prefer it without the bourbon. Then again maybe not. On third sip, definitely not!! Big roasted malts,huge coffee flavor and hints of chocolate delicately accentuated by bourbon barrel aging. Finish is a tad sweet between the chocolate and the abv.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a pitch black with a dense and lacing light brown head. Hard roast charcoal aroma – some licorice as well. Medium body, very burned maltiness, dark dried fruits and charcoal, a little vanilla too but not much Bourbon really. Ends malt astringent. 160111

Ungstrup (34711) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2011
Bottled. A black beer with a huge lazing dark brown beer. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and wood, leading to a very dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.

Beer5000 (5962) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JAN 14, 2011
500 ml bottle @ Patricks (thanks to Yngwie). Black body with a big beige head. Aroma of medium roasted malt, coffee, mild whisky and strong vanilla. Flavor is sweet, roasted, dark malt, coffee, fruity hops, bitter and warming alcohol from Bourbon. It’s complex and very balanced, quite soft and a long, bitter finish that feels drier than in the beginning. A successfully barrel experiment, very nice.

Bottle, at Patricks. A black one, topped by a big, creamy, tan head that lasts, although smaller. Cute lacings. There’s a lot of chocolate on the nose. Coffee, vanilla and bourbon too, some hints of hops. Warming, full-bodied and nicely carbonated, rather dry but with a good sweetness balancing the whole thing. Quite a lot of flavor, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, bitterness and some booze. Lasting finish. A beer I could dip my nose into for ages. The flavor isn’t at the same level, but still very good. 110113
