bedainedebiere (503) - Terrebonne, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 6, 2011
Aroma of coffee, chocolate and strong alchoolic notes of bourbon: very appealing. Quite harsh taste, dominated by a lot of torrefied malt, notes of bourbon, licorice, coffee and dark chocolate. Dry intense leafy hoppiness. Rather thick texture. Amazing world-class stuff but kind of too sweet, heavy and intense to become a personnal favorite although I might have rated this higher on a blizzard-like winter evening after I have been stucked 2 hours in traffic jams.

25 cl courtesy of papsoe, thanks! wow, what an amazing pour, been a while since ive seen this caliber or deliciousness from looking at a beer. cascading black body with a dense dark brown head that slowly rises with varegation and has nice retention. aroma is intense, just the taste, of dark licorice, figs, smoke, tar, sap, etc. huge and heavy. good stuff, a tad smoeky for my palate. a thick and very viscous body, oiy and thick, lingering, but very smooth for the abv, though it does show its face some. i think this one will do well and get a good bit smoother with some age.

Mikkeller barrel aged George. 330cl bottle purchased and drank at olbutikken... Pours a medium creamy consistency of smooth deeper coffee tones, reddish edges, and topped with a creamy medium tan head, minimal lacing...vanilla and pepper upfront then evolves to more of a bourbon woodiness. A little ash on the backend. Nice and not overstated from a barrel perspective. Silky smooth and the barrel is well integrated. A slight bitterness finishing things off a nice note. 8/4/9/4/17

Tiny bottle shared at Dstructo/Daknole tasting. This is about as good as a BA stout gets. Amazing aroma of dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla. Flavor was very much the same, sweet and slightly boozy. Top notch

deyholla (6954) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 20, 2011
Big thanks to Kan for lugging this back! Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipated quickly to the edges. Aroma is a bit boozy with bourbon backed by dark grains, slight roast and a hint of bitter chocolate. Flavor is more balanced with dark grains and roasted malts in the start with growing bitter chocolate and a nice bourbon backbone.

Taste is full and very rich with bourbon, roasted malt, lots of coffee, oak, vanilla, sweet caramel, light smoke, plums and raisin notes. Full creamy body, low carbonation, bourbon like long staying finish. Awesome, doesnt get much better than this. 180611
