UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 bottle bought at de molen. poured pitch black with a small brown head. the smell reminds me a lot to the regular black version. chocolate, bourbon booze, barrel smell, vanilla, some tabacco, the abv is verry noticeable. all the flavours are perfect together. verry complex beer. would love to try the other versions.

Bottle at home, from De Molen shop, 02/11/13.
Pitch black with a good sized dirty tan covering that retains well.
Nose is roast malt, bitter dark chocolate, woody bourbon notes, earthy, light coffe waft.
Taste comprises dark chocolate, light spice, good bourbon hit, boozed soaked wood, sugars but not overly sweet for a 13%er.
Full bodied, soft carbonation, warming alcohol in the finale.
Solid BA impy, carries a good level of depth throughout and doesn’t get too hot or cloying.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: Dark Opaque Hue, Passes No Light, Brown Head, Minimal Lacing
S: Bourbon, Coffee, Honey
T: Coffee, Bourbon, Vanilla
M: Decent Carbonation, Full Bodied, Boozy
Overall, a decent barrel aged stout but the bourbon is very powerful and almost over powering as it gets warmer.

Black, tanned head. Smells of bourbon, toffee, vanilla, roast and malts. Heavy sweet, coffee, bourbon, oak, moderate bitter. Quite nice but not all that complex, strange mouthfeel. Nice bourbon barrelled beer
