Bottle brought to our tasting by Pallieter85, many thanks. Almost black color with medium beige head. Strong coffee aroma with dark chocolate, bourbon and soya sauce. Taste is mostly bourbon and soya sauce, coffee, licorice. Strong alcoholic finish. Very boozy beer.

Not much aroma or taste, but could be useful when thirsty. [short review due to it coming from my backlog]

Opaque dark brown beer, good dark tan head. Smooth silky palate. Nice nose of espresso and coffee ice cream! Rich and smooth dark malt, rich coffee, vanilla and coffee ice cream. Well integrated spicy bourbon. A semi dry finish with mild bitterness and alcohol. Further ageing probably would not hurt but a rich coffee treat nontheless.

NBird (356) - Perth, West Australia, AUSTRALIA - DEC 29, 2012
It is dark chocolate black, looks viscous, little head. Smells of port, dark roasted fruit, chocolate, coffee and bourbon. Feels like a mouthful of desert. Tastes amazing, loads of chocolate, coffee and caramel, some cooked fruits and bourbon, finishing with a dark roasted coffee bean flavour. Beast.

Bottle (batch 462 with a bb of 191014). Pours with a huge, deep brown iodine like head with a black body. Great retention. Aromas are of fudge, vinous, chocolate, ash, raisins, bourbon, vanilla, cotton candy, char, caramel, bready, currants. Flavors are of char and ash. Iodine, bitter, brown sugar, roasty, light barrel. Dry, molasses. Thick bodied, low carbonation, warming. Some coffee in the finish. Overall: oppressive. Over done roast character.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2013 Thx. to Vincent // 50 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBSG 2012 // 2009 Vintage // White wax // sampled after Bourbon BA Breakfast // dark brown, blackish with a small mocha head // smells is sweet, molasses, brown sugar, sweet coffee, bourbon, touch roast // tastes of bitter mocha, caramel. chocolate, tad berries from the civet coffee but deff way less than original, reasonable amount of molasses, vanilla, tad wood, bourbon // good body // nice to try but original is preferable, you know cause of more of special coffee flavours /// Tried again this one thx. to Kraddel, way better than my hazy memory remembered it, sweet coffee & bourbon goodness, bit shame that the agar had cluttered together as it tends to with age & I almost swallowed a bit slimy chunk, turn-off //// increased score from 4.3 to 4.6
