Bottle shared with Simonsen, edvard & daje
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

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Sample at the "Far Out! Space-themed beer tasting" on 10/01/2013. This beer pours a glazzy onyx color with a medium thick beige head that recedes slowly. Patchy lacing on the glass. Aroma of bourbon, chocolate and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of oaky bourbon, dark chocolate and roasted malt. The finish is roasty with an oaky vanilla and bourbon aftertaste. Good all around.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Corked 37.5 cl bottle @ home. Pours black with some sediment and a tiny tan head that leaves no lacing. Aroma is dark fruits, booze, vanilla, and chocolate. Flavour is much like the aroma – with some warming alcohol and a bitter finish.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(bottle - corked & caged 375 ml - 2010 vintage) Dark black pour with a very thin tan head and very mild carbonation. Huge roasted malt aroma with a dark fruit backbone and a woody twinge to it as well. Flavor is a big mixture of coffee, licorice, vanilla, wood and a big bourbon sweetness. Not as sweet as I thought it would be and the alcohol is well hidden. Delicious and thick.

Bottle. This is a really big beer with lots of wood and alcohol in the mix. I like this a little more than the scotch barrel aged. I think the sweetness of the bourbon helped.

WOW!! This is a BIG BEER!!! Robust, full bodied stout! This is what I expected from Mikeller. Coffee, licorice, beer, and bourbon flavors explode in the mouth... Small, tan head. (Oct 2012)
