Head to head vs. Mikkeller George! BA Calvados, vintage 2013: Pours black oily color, clear, with foamy brown head, which immediately transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Aroma: intense malt aroma, supported with intense Cognac note, hint of vanilla...flavor: intense malt flavor, with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cacao nibs, vanilla, oak, hint of cinnamon, supported with intense note of cognac, which steps forward in second half. Finish is dry, slightly astringent. Body is full, texture silky smooth, carbonation is low. Both are very, very good, for sure the winner is Bourbon BA😉

Cremig malziger, etwas oxidierter Antrunk. Holzig, wenig herb, erstaunlich süffig. Später etwas alkoholisch, geringe Würzigkeit. Insgesamt eher schwach. 9/7/8/7/7/7

Svesse (7912) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
(Bottle) Pitch black colour with dense, dark brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong black coffee, cacao, liquorice, treacle, tar, asphalt, black rye bread, oak wood and a touch of cognac. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, cacao, dark chocolate, liquorice, sweet soy sauce, oak wood, cognac and a warming finish with some alcohol, a generous coffee bitterness and a touch of cognac. Full body, quite sweet. Thick and oily texture. Hardly subtle, but very tasty and fairly well balanced (considering it carries a certain punch). Excellent beer!

Sammy (11216) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 13, 2016
Thick RIS, and it looks it. Calvados not imposing but rounds out the stout. Very rich and worth seeking out.
