Bottle. Pours black with thin tan head. Aroma is wood, chocolate and some dark fruit. Flavor is the same with a long semi-dry finish. Very nice.

Dr_Fellini (545) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle to glass. Pours a deep brown to black color with a medium brown head. Aroma is a slightly funky coffee, roasted malts, not much bourbon barrel characteristics. Same in the flavor. Heavy roasted malts, coffee, but pretty much nil on the Bourbon barrel. Still tasty nonetheless.

"the barreling here is pretty subtle...big roasted coffee, oats, are the stars here...not really justified at $6 more than breakfast. not really better, but i’m glad i tried it once."

Bottle at 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering on 03/19/2011 from Charleston Beer Exchange. Dark black body with a small creamy tan head. Big roast, chocolate and coffee aroma. Sweet roast, chocolate, coffee and light toffee flavor. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

mcberko (7074) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 27, 2013
500mL bottle one year before the expiration date, sent from Glouglouburp (thanks Dany), pours black with a medium tan head and lots of sediment. Nose brings out an unusual sweet, licorice-y liqueur character with some weird spice mix upfront above anything, along with a little wood, roasted malt and oats. Flavour is thankfully not along those lines -- at least not the weird dominant liqueur part -- with moderate roasted malt and subdued bourbon characterizing the flavour. The nose puts me off more and more; it’s unfortunate I have to smell it every time I go to take a sip. The depth of the base beer is sadly gone in this version. I’m not sure if this is past its prime or if the barrel aging was supposed to do this, but this doesn’t work for me. A sub-bar Mikkeller beer.

Foffern (1298) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 14, 2013
Bottle shared with (and great courtesy of) the Bergen tasting crew. Pours a black colour with a light brown compact coffee-like head. The aroma is sweet and compact with tones of roasted malt, coffee, oak, Irish coffee, syrup and alcohol. The flavour is not far away with the addition some spices, and is pretty complex. Has a rich and smooth mouth feel, and a medium bitterness. A balanced, compact and nice stout. The bourbon is not very distinct though.

Inbreak (2404) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - MAY 12, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 11.05.2013, 0,5l bottle sampled @ BBGTC moving-home-tasting for Floffern:
Nice cocoa colored head. Aroma is medium rich, coffee, dark sugar, caramel, licorice, wood, soy sauce, cocoa. Taste is slightly rich, caramel, dark sugar, cocoa, coffee, wood, grass, a hint of bourbon. Slightly dry, medium bitterness. Very drinkable for being a barrel aged beer.

JStax (3237) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2013
500 ml bottle. Pours a viscous black with a khaki colored head of foam. Lots of vanilla and dark roasty coffee coming through with some woody barrel notes. I’m surprised at how good this one is.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 14, 2013
A - Dark black with a hint of brown and a finger of frothy chocolate head. Fades fairly slowly. S - Dark chocolate malts, roasted coffee, vanilla, oak, Bourbon, milk chocolate, molasses, black licorice, some caramel malts. T - Dark chocolate malts, roasted coffee, oak, vanilla, Bourbon, black licorice, molasses, some milk chocolate and caramel malts, earthy hops and some mild hop bitterness, toasted coconut, oatmeal. M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Super smooth with a roasted, sweet, and warming finish. D - Fantastic balance. The Bourbon adds some great complexity to the base beer.

ineedbeer (888) - Oakland, California, USA - JAN 3, 2013
Aroma has nice notes of chocolate an roast as well as secondary notes of bourbon, oak and quite a bit of vanilla. There is also a fruitiness that doesn't quite fit; I want to say raisin and fig. Some alcohol in the aroma and a touch of oxidation, but wet cardboard instead of sherry. A hint of a coffee aroma. Pours a deep black with a thick mocha colored head that has pretty solid retention. Some lacing and moderate legs. Flavor has a nice malt forward character with a good balance of roast, chocolate and oats. After the initial malt character fades away you get a bit of oak and vanilla as well as a touch of bourbon. As that fades there are dark fruit notes, some tobacco and leather and more bourbon. The finish starts with milk chocolate and a hint of coffee and slowly gets more roasty and astringent. There is more bourbon and alcohol in the finish. There is an odd vanilla extract type characteristic to the vanilla note. Low hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied with medium low carbonation. Astringency is medium low. Silky, creamy mouthfeel. Moderately high alcohol warmth. Overall this beer is alright. It seems a bit oxidized in a less than good way. The esters in the aroma don't quite fit and mid-palate the vanilla/oak note is a bit off. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
