BMan1113VR (7914) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 7, 2012
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.

Poured into Glencairn glass from bottle. This is an almost perfect beer. Strong thick flavors and aroma. Coffee, sweet, oak, bourbon, sweet, thick heavy mouthful. Wish it had slightly more lingering head retention but otherwise, a perfect stout.

biirusaikou (1894) - - JAN 2, 2016
Draught at Mikkeller Tokyo. Starts off nicely but notes of peat, tobacco and soy sauce slowly get a bit overwhelming, not so impressive in the end. A taster was more than enough, another overrated brew...

Chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla, maple syrup, and on top of all that a generous amount of bourbon goodness.

minutemat (3256) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 24, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours black with a thin tan head. Good bourbon aroma alongside some chocolate. Taste is thick and unctuous. Quite a prominent bourbon influence married brilliantly with the coffee and roasted elements. A bit sticky, but a lovely drop.

Ouf! Ça c’est du sérieux! Aucune mousse, très peu carbonisé, mais arômes et goûts très puissants: café, chocolat, vanille, bourbon. Le tout très bien balancé avec un fort taux d’alcool et le corp. Wow

neongolden (1012) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 20, 2015
(2014 330ml bottle from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen) Pours black with a tiny ring of tan bubbles and no lace. Aroma is quite strong but wonderfully rounded bourbon with no heat, creamy coconut and vanilla notes, dark malts, cassonade sugar, bittersweet chocolate, soft roast, a bit of coffee that’s restrained compared to the regular version but has pungency. Flavour is lovely as well, beginning with a sweet dark malt/toffee core, a bit of dark chocolate, creamy rounded bourbon vanilla and coconut, and sweet black coffee. Moderate roast and more spirit/oak character builds in the middle, roast coffee beans and earth, towards a moderately bitter and semi-dry finish of lightly charred roast, slightly pungent coffee, vanilla and some good bourbon. Dry and dusty roast in the aftertaste. No alcohol heat. Medium-full creamy body with very soft carb. Lovely, such a nice nuanced but still intense extraction of bourbon flavours, expected great stout base and the coffee holds its own. Not nearly as sweet and cloying as some in the style. Met my very high expectations!
