A: Dark Opaque Hue, Passes No Light, Brown Head, Minimal Lacing
S: Bourbon, Coffee, Honey

Overall, a decent barrel aged stout but the bourbon is very powerful and almost over powering as it gets warmer.

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.

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.
