COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel barrel aged on Bourbon barrels. Nice malty taste with notes of dark chocolate and dark fruits. The barrel aging gives a nice warmth from the alcohol as well as a nice aroma of vanilla.

Bottle, bought @ Magasin, Cph. Pours almost completely black with a medium, staying, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has oak, roasted malts, plums, light acetone, apples, vanilla. Fairly dusty. Medium carbonation, fine dry and creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is fairly mild, dusty, vinious, plums, roasted malts, vanilla. Lingering vinioius and warming finish. Okay.

FatPhil (9359) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - FEB 26, 2013
375ml bottle (Viisi Pennia, Helsinki)
Slight wood-resin glue aroma, but pretty nice, a little thin, and slightly grapey too. Quite a light body, pleasant carbonation, no sign of 10%. Slight grapey fruitiness, a little butter, no big spikes, quite mellow. Very nice, very drinkable, fruit-juicy. Finish dry and woody, and with dry nut-paper old hops. Bourbon remains very much in the background here - to be honest, Iíd have identified this as having been aged in marsala or white sherry sherry barrels rather than bourbon. (However, there have been a couple of Mikkellers where the barrels have tasted just plain wrong, Iím not 100% sure they label everything correctly.)

jackl (4604) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Bottle @ Bruceís birthday tasting. This was a drunken impulse purchase. The pourís deep brown with a small khaki head. The aromaís rich bourbon, plenty of wood and vanilla, hints of raisin and caramel. Mild Christmas spices (ginger, nutmeg etc). The taste is more bourbon heavy dark fruits, chocolate cake. Rum raisin ice cream. Chocolate cookie. Rich, full body, a bit hot. Overall, a nice effort.
