Maria (9963) - Thisted, DENMARK - APR 8, 2011
It’s pitch-black with a very dark-brown, huge, creamy and lasting head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, roasted malt, wood, chocolate, licorice and vanilla. The sweet flavour has notes of roasted malt, bourbon, dark chocolate, licorice, dark fruits. It’s vinous, complex and incredibly nice.

rlgk (9492) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - APR 4, 2011
Bottle. Black beer with a creamy brown head. Smoky bourbon aroma, vanilla and tar, figs and raisins. Oaky flavor, tar and licorice, vinous, salty and with clear bourbon notes.

yngwie (12722) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 3, 2011
Bottle, 25cl. A black one, topped by a minimal tan head. Quite oily. The aroma is much like the unbarreled edition, except it’s more on the alcohol side. Burnt and roasted with chocolate and some soy sauce and dried fruits. The same goes for the flavor, it’s more boozy, and with the same dark maltyness, dried fruits, caramel and coffee. It’s full-bodied and oily on the palate, finishing with a seemingly longer aftertaste than in the unbarrelled edition. Well, it’s a lovely beer indeed, but I prefer the regular edition, this one feels a bit too boozy. 101229

madsberg (9654) - Søborg, DENMARK - MAR 31, 2011
Bottled. Pitch black coloured. Dense dark brown head. Thick and oily pour. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, roast, liqourice, vanilla, wood, brown sugar, molasses and some herbs. Flavour of roast, coffee, chocolate, liqourice, vanilla, vague bourbon barrel, brown sugar and it just keeps comming. Exeptionel. Full bodied. Has a long lasting end with loads of roasty bitterness, some smoke, some liqourice and I could go on. Phenomenal beer IMO. (Last beer of an awesome beer month. Thx to the Copenhagen crew for sharing so much beerlove)

Nickls (1765) - SE DC, Washington DC, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a rich dark tan head on a purely black body. Aroma has loads of dark chocolate, light sweetness, prunes, and a hit of bourbon and roast. Roasted malt bitterness, hint of smoke, light vanilla and woodiness (oak), but not as bourbony as I would’ve thought, dark chocolate, and a slight residual sweetness along with a drier finish. Thicker body with subtler carbonation. Good stuff.

igniztion (313) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2011
Bottle 250ml at home. Pours pitch black, with non-lasting brown head. Aroma is a heavenly mix of coffee, chocolate, alcohol, oak, bourbon, roasted. Taste is very bitter, light to medium sweet. Full body, thick, soft carbonation, dry. Room temperature is needed for this one. Wicked!

Holy (834) - GERMANY - MAR 21, 2011
Bottle @ACBF 2011. Very smooth bourbon flavor over a very good stout. Exactly what you would expect from Mikkeller.
