Compared with Islay Edition this was more gentle, more rounded, balanced with kind of calvados apple like hints in flavor than corn. More gentle finish, more wooden notes in aroma.

martjoobolut (1284) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 18, 2015
0,33L bottle (from bierkompass.de), BB 23.05.24. Pours dark brown-black with light brown head. The head stays for a second. Aroma is intense dark chocolate, bourbon, coffee, malt. Flavor is very sweet, dark chocolate, bourbon, ash, salt. Overall: good brew. I really enjoyed the aroma, but flavor was major let down.

suurjuust (1555) - ESTONIA - JAN 15, 2015
Dark brown beer, small tan head. Nose is bourbon, roast, stale coffee notes and the whole thing just does not mesh. Flavor is way better, the bourbon dominates, way less coffee, warming booze, chocolate, some vanilla and citric tones, candy sweetness. Like eating chocolate with oranges. Niiice.

FatPhil (10090) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 10, 2015
330ml bottle @Martjoobolut - congrats!
Aroma’s all over the place. Stale, and coconut = NOOOOO! Taste is the opposite, it all gels well. Beautiful mellow roast, slight hint of chocolate cake. Black, almost no head. Bourbon works so well with this type of beer, sweetness of the vanilla adds to the sweet mellowness. From the aroma, I thought I would be the lowest rating, but no, this is lovely. BA done well. -ish.

rouhlas (611) - GREECE - JAN 7, 2015
500ml bottle courtesy of mixos. Black color with brown head. Aroma is roasted malty, chocolate, coffee, spicy, dark fruits, wood. Sweet and bitter taste like the aroma with some vanilla. Full body almost creamy with soft carbonation.

skullgeorge (59) - Thessaloniki, GREECE - JAN 2, 2015
Aged Bottle (2009) thanks to Mixos ! Pours deep dark, black with a thin brown head that leaves very quick. Amazing aromas of Bourdon, coffee, dark fruits, chocolate and wood. Taste is also wonderful with bourbon and coffee conquers your tongue, chocolate and wood, liquorice, full body with low carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste that last long and very dry mouthfeel... Amazing beer !!
