I liked this a lot. It was a healthy reminder of the reason I starting choosing to drink beer!

Medium body, with light body and very soft carbonation. Flavour is burned malts, with raw cocoa, charcoal and earthy notes, as well as leather, tannins and bourbon barrels.

Small slightly bubbly mediumlasting head. Aroma is slightly dry mineraly, dark malts, burnt sugar, minerals, booze, oak, licorice, dark sugar, grass, weeds, burnt coffee. Taste is slightly sour-ish dry, dark malts, burnt sugar, booze, minerals, bark, oak, weeds, burnt coffee, licorice, grass. Medium bitterness, slightly dry and burnt watery mouthfeel. Fair enough, probably way over the top...

375 ml bottle at home purchased a few years ago. Pours dark brown to black in color with a minimal beige head. The aroma and flavor have roasted malt, dark chocolate, bourbon, honey, coffee, I had this fresh with many of the other variants and remember it being more bourbon forward, now flavors are more balanced, some oxidation, low carbonation, still good.

phaleslu (9307) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2016
375 ml bottle purchased from The Wine and Cheese Place in 2010 or 2011. Opened blindly alongside all other variants. Pours a deep, nearly opaque dark brown with minimal tan head that settles into a ring. This one has notes of cocoa, fudge, vanilla, honey, oak, coffee, dry roasted malts, and just a wee hint of dark dried fruits. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation and a sweet, smooth, rich mouthfeel. My guess was Rum, given the more prominent barrel character and hint of dark fruit, but the fact it was Bourbon was a bummer to me after my extensive experience with the spirit and barrel treatment for beer. Damn.

Bosskie (726) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 21, 2014
Pitch black, brown highlights, warm yellowish golden head. Beautiful. Smell is sour fruitiness mixed with coffee and dark chocolate. Lots of leather, metallic, roasted nuts, fizzy spiciness. And espresso! Salty silty, touch of soy sauce, drop. Very subtle hoppy background. Taste starts of sour, almost vinegary, like a geueze or saison. Then the coffee bitterness takes over. Suprisingly both extremes remain quite distinct. Oily feel, lots of spicy fizziness. Very surprising balance. As I hold it in my mouth I’m still doubting how it can work. Brilliant! Feels like it’s a whisky barrel ripener, that’s how full it is. The alcohol is there as warmth nut barely plays a role in the taste.
