4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours pitch black, with a creamy brown head receding to a small cap. Aroma is dark roasted malts, with coffee, cocoa and oak barrels, as well as notes of heather, honey and only slight whiffs of bourbon. Full body with creamy texture, and very soft to no carbonation. Flavour is sweet roasted malts, with coffee, cocoa, burned wood and bourbon, as well as leather, liquorice and heather notes. Lingering sweet malty notes of vanilla, tobacco and wooden barrels in the finish. A massive and complex, yet subdued and very balanced brew.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle @ THLBBT May. Pours a pitch black beer with small beige head on top. Aroma of bourbon and caramel, touch of oak and vanilla. Flavor is very sweet, sugary with loads of boozy notes that come from the bourbon. Big, alcoholic sweetness, loads of complex woody flavors, good note of coffee and loads to explore in this beer. Very, very nice.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Dark almost black beer with small cinnamon coloured head on top. Aroma is just amazing. There is lots of vanilla from the bourbon, then roasted malt, coffee in different form, there is espresso and milk coffee. Some sweet chocolate also. Taste has bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts, lots of coffee, dark chocolate, milk coffee and cream. Full body and low carbonation makes this an pleasure to drink. Hands down my favourite beer so far. The bourbon finish gives this great vanilla flavour which I like a lot in my imperial stout. Just perfect 5/5.

Black with brown head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, leather and some sweet roasted malt. Bourbon, roasted malt and smooth finish. Overall: nice and surprisingly sessionable. I miss the amazing coffee from the regular weasel.

Das Bier ist schwarz und es hat eine geringe aber sehr schöne braune Schaumkrone. Geruch sehr röstmalzig, alkoholisch, Holzfass, Vanille, Kaffee. Geschmack extrem nach Vanille, sehr cremig, süß, schokoladig, sehr vollmundig, eine reine Geschmacksexplosion, wow!

Tap at Mikkeller Bar, Stockholm, last of the keg, lucky me. Really mouth and very luxurious. The bourbon is well integrated into the base beer. Great stuff
