Bottle at Pizzeria Paradiso. This one pales in comparison to the rhum version (no pun intended). I suspect it;s been far too long in the cask, or a far too large doe of bourbon. No beer comes through here, it only whiskey and nothing else. I shared it with the beer manager and bar staff, and they drain poured it. Enough said.

A Mes rate. Bottle from Ølbutikken.
Looks like a Mikkeller and as a result is brilliant by default. The inky black tar character of the regular version is clear as day, as are the excellent hops. The bourbon is really well integrated and not at all overdone. It’s surprisingly restrained and delicate. Ok delicate is not a word that should be used to describe this beer. It’s big for sure. But somehow the word seems to fit. It’s taken the edge off the regular beer and rounded it all off nicely. But... That’s the problem here. I liked the assertiveness of the regular version more. Interesting beer, no doubt but the sum is not greater than its parts.

BeerChaser0078 (909) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2010
Bottle. Deep black pour with a short tan head that quickly shrinks to a ring around the surface. Aroma is quite roasty and a bit salty, with notes of dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, ash and licorice. Flavour is very similar but everything seems amplified: more burnt / ashy, more chocolate and a lot more influence from the bourbon barrel including whisky, wood and vanilla notes. Slightly oily yet surprisingly light mouthfeel, low carbonation and a lingering roasty finish. Nicely balanced and complex, this is very good, almost better than the original, but not quite.

Thanks to xxnateballxx for sharing. Dark viscous pour. Aroma of vanilla, coffee, bourbon and chocolate. Flavor follows suite. Excellent use of the barrel

Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry warming finish. Flavors of roasted malt, charcoal, coffee, bourbon, oak and bitter chocolate with a smooth dry warming lingering roasty chocolate finish.

dunkpigen (379) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2010
Aroma is sweet chocolaty and vinous. Pours black with a caramel creamy head. Flavour is toffee, chocolate, coffee and vinious- burns a bit. Nice soft mouthfeel, long aftertaste of chocolate, coffee and then and the alcohol.

thewolf (11986) - Kolding, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2010
Bottle, bought @ Vinens Verden, Odense.
Completely black with a smallish, creamy, cappucino beige head. Heavy aroma. Lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate, light coffee. Heavy bourbon notes, lots of sweet vanilla and a fairly heavy dose of vinousness. Low carbonation, great dry and fairly creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is very elegant and well-balanced. Fin roasted notes, dark chocolate, plums, oak, some tannins, sweet vanilla. The finish is light bitter with a fairly harsh alcohol note. The alcohol does sting a little, which detracts from an otherwise great drinking experience.

12.7oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with thick, tan head. Aroma of coffee, roasted malts, bourbon, etc. Awesome flavor that is so complex because of the roasted malts with chocolate and coffee notes, the alcohol, and the honey too. Thick texture. An incredible beer.
