RexTalionis (2963) - FINLAND - NOV 26, 2014
Bottle. Pours near black in color with a nice tan head. Mmm, awesome. There’s some roasted coffee, darker chocolate, burnt and wet wooden notes with hints of salty and lushy licorice in aroma. Later on the vanilla and oak mixed with smooth spicyness takes over. Nice. Cocoa powder, chocolatecake and lots of coffee mixed with vanilla and smooth oak in taste. Bitter and slightly dry mouthfeel. There’s also some strong notes of roasted malts and slightly burnt wood mixed with earthy herbs in aftertaste. Yet this one feels quite smooth on the whole and there’s a soothing warm vinous effect in the end.

Svesse (6844) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 7, 2014
(Bottle) Black colour with dense, brown head. Roasted, malty nose with black coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, vanilla, oak wood, liquorice and a touch of bourbon. Malty, roasted taste with notes of strong black coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, oak wood, bourbon, hints of rum, liquorice, dark fruit and a generous coffee bitterness in a sweet, vinous finish with a fair amount of bourbon shining through. Full body, fairly sweet. Subtle is not really the word, it’s quite powerful and very tasty. Lovely beer!

Klimaet (576) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2014
Bottle. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aromas of vanilla, bourbon, slight coconutty aromas, licorice, some coffee and chocolate with some toffee. Taste is stronger roast, lots of bourbon, coffee beans, toffee, vanilla, oaky notes, sweet dark fruits. God damn!

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Should have rated this bastard a while ago. Pours like motor oil with a dark khaki head. Big aroma of milk chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, salted chocolate, espresso and maybe a touch of dark fruit. Rich, creamy chocolate mixed in with dry cacao, an oaky warmth and some spicy vanilla are super chewy on the palate, very velvety and heavy. Lingering boozy warmth with oak, raisin and some bitter choc. Another world class brew from mr Mikkeller.

esp0r (2291) - NORWAY - OCT 27, 2014
Bottle shared with Simonsen
Pours jet black with a thin tanned head. Smell of bourbon, vanilla, booze and dark malts. Medium sweet, more bourbon and vanilla, boozes, dark malts and roast.......but where is the koppi lowak coffee? Moderate bitter finish. This is a good beer, but sadly the coffee flavors from the original is just a fade of what it can be. The originial is much better i’m afraid. The bourbon just don’t bring enough magic to this beer

FknClownshoes (26) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 24, 2014
Looks like a long black coffee with a small head resembling coffee crema. Smells like robusta coffee, spice and bourbon/oak. Tastes like kopi luwak (Indonesian/Sabah coffee) and chocolate, with a medium sweetness and molasses taste balanced out by the alcoholic linger of the bourbon which is present, but not dominant. The syrupy mouth-feel is balanced nicely by the spiciness from the bourbon and the toffee type characteristics of the coffee. Stand out brew this one; it is highly recommended for lovers of good coffee, bourbon and most importantly great beer.

"Exactly what I was hoping it would be. BGBW is already one of the smoothest beers I’ve ever had. While this edition is 1.8% stronger, it loses none of the smoothness. Rich and full. perfect carbonation, no alcohol bite at 12%?!! 3 months in barrels was perfect. Coffee is still the main player and the bourbon adds to, instead of taking away from the base beer. Release this in the states already!!!"
