NielsenRatings (8273) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 28, 2013
Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV. Not sure if this was courtesy of my Secret Santa or René. Thanks! Pours a deep brown appearance with a tiny head. Rich coffee, chocolate, very roasty malty, light whiskey, vanilla aroma. Spicy earthy coffee, vanilla, toffee, chocolate, caramel, herbal, a touch stale flavor. Tasty and smooth but maybe a touch old.

Keg@CBC2013 Dark opaque black, dark brown head. Vanilla, roasted aroma. Full-bodied. Sticky, roasted and a bit boozy. Bourbon, yes.

nimbleprop (4196) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 26, 2013
25cl bottle pours an inky black with some thin, creamy, mocha head. Nose has plenty of windex from afar, lots of licorice, both red and black licorice, some cherry cordial, some booze, some Kahlua, heavy molasses, a little smoke, Bordeaux grapes. Flavor has a surprising amount of black pepper, tons of licorice, molasses, super sweet, malt extract, some mild smoke, almost a little tobacco leaf, some soy, some caramel, toast, a little stale cola. Smooth, sweet finish. Give this to 10 people on the street and they wouldn’t know it was beer. Very interesting.

WillemsUrenkel (308) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2013
Thanks for the bottle to kappldav123. Pours darkest black and oily. Shortest living brown head. Pure dark chocolate and fruity coffie on the nose. Starts with deepest toffee, coffiebitterness and berryfruits, hints of licorice. Only light alcoholic. Longlasting taste.

Abrakarl (249) - SWEDEN - SEP 29, 2013
Magnificent rich, cherry leather aroma. Can imagine this is a beer that will be "too much". But it is a joy tasting half a bottle of 25 cl of this luxurious brew. Almost no head. Boozy - in a good way. Didn’t go too far with the bourbon ageing here.
