Pundarquartis' rating

   AROMA 9/10   APPEARANCE 5/5   TASTE 10/10   PALATE 5/5   OVERALL 19/20
Pundarquartis (19) - Odense, - NOV 6, 2010
Fantastic taste and smell of roasted malt, chocolate, dried fruits and liquorice. Together with a fantasticly light mouthfeel, very close to chocolate mousse, this makes a winner.

BMMillsy (1364) - Florida, USA - SEP 9, 2014
2011 bottle poured to Mikkeller gold rimmed Teku at Kulminator in Antwerp. Pours pitch black and thick with a small dark mocha head on top. Aroma of chocolate, anise, lots of roast. Flavor is chocolate graham cracker and lots of anise--more than I’ve had from other variants--some cardboard and roast. Very low on the bourbon flavor, but very smooth and easy. Smooth and rich bodied with low plus carbonation. Very nice brew, though don’t like this one as much as the cognac or base version.

Bottle, thanks to burspak! Enjoyed as rating #3100. Pours inky black with a small creamy dark brown head that slowly dissipates leaving nice residual and good lacing. Aroma is chocalatey vanilla bourbon. Flavor follows, light plus sweet with bracing bitterness, roasty, chocolatey, lots of bourbon burn, notes of vanilla and a bit of coffee, slight burned notes as well. Full, creamy mouthfeel, lots of lingering bitterness. Fairly hot. Very nice beer.

Bottled and beer dudes tasting at Appellation Wines Comely Bank thanks to BenH again. Appearance - oily, opaque and black. It looks like crude oil. Nose - vanilla, tar and wood tannins. Taste - wood spice, burnt wood and a long liquorice note. Palate - full bodied with a big boozy texture which lasts all the way through to the finish and then some. It somehow manages still to have balance despite this richness. Overall - a lovely, rich, late evening beer!
