Firefly54 (222) - - FEB 14, 2013
Really rich aroma, mainly of chocolate. Some raisin, sticky brown sugar and coffee. Not much trace of the barrel. Taste is slightly earthy, the chocolate element comes through, coffee note and then a long subtle chilli heat to finish. Best beer I’ve had in a long time.

Strykzone (4475) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 9, 2014
Sampled at esbls. Very dark and a little angry looking. Big barrel notes with roast and malts. Soy. Big flavor is almost as angry as angry as the aroma. Good.

kraddel (2429) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - APR 4, 2014
Bottle Pours very dark brown , with a mocha head . Smell is sweet , dark, heavy , bit spices, very full and thick . Reminds me of when I had my first few mikkeller Imperial stouts , even ! And tháts a compliment ! Touch to much carbo , but still doable . INTENSE chocolate taste ( I LOVE that ! ) and bitterness that naturally joins that . Not too much of the peppers , just hints, that blend in perfectly . Mouthfeel is very good , full , but I midd thickness . In a way, the body is perfect for this ABV , but I rate blindly and simply prefer thicker beer . AKA no perfection here ( not possible neither I guess ) So I cannot give that part 5/5 . I expected this one to be mediocer to me at best. I am surprised to discover it is actually one of the best mikkellers yet , on about 110 I drank of them . At this ABV , at this price ? Hell yes, tháts how its done !

ansalon (931) - Stockholm, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2014
Pours black with a medium creamy tan head. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate, muscovado sugar, slight liqourice and bourbon. Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, nuscovado sugar, dark red berries, bourbon. Mouthfeel is quite dry and astringent with low carbonation. Aftertaste is coffee, dark chocolate and a slight chili hint though nowhere near as dominating as the non-barrel version. Very good though! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

blankboy (5797) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 17, 2014
[Bottle (375ml) c/o Glouglouburp] Pours a very dark amber-brown, almost black, with an average size long-lasting frothy light-brown head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is fruity first followed by roasted malt, chocolate, wood, light smoke, light coffee, vanilla and more -- quite nice. Nice flavour, smoky and fruity, along with roasted malt, chocolate, a bit of alcohol, wood, some leafy hops and a long, semi-big roasty/bitter finish. Medium bodied. An enjoyable beer, and nice to have a barrel-aged beer with this low an abv.
