Christian (12183) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 20, 2011
Black with a lasting tan head. Strong, though nice, bourbon aroma along with licorice, ash and wood. Roasted flavour with licorice notes, bourbon and coconut, and a drying, roasted finish.

dcschiller (2207) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 19, 2011
(375ml bottle). Pours pitch black with generous 2 finger chocolate head. Nice lacing. Aroma is spices, cocoa and light bourbon. Taste is sweet with loads of chocolate and a touch a vanilla. Medium bodied with an oily texture. A bit of a dry roasty finish. Not bad at all.

suprchunk (2779) - Crestview, Florida, USA - DEC 19, 2011
Black pour. Huge, dark, tan head that lasts quite a while. Leaves plenty of lacing behind. Smells, chocolatey, peppery, hints of vanilla, and bourbon and wood notes. Taste is woody, chocolate, and alcohol. A little warm, but the sweetness mellows it out a bit. Not bad at all.

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - DEC 17, 2011
Pours a dark brown beer with a beige head. The aroma is malt, coffee, alcohol, fruit and sweetness. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness with alcoholwarmth. Overall a good beer.

daknole (10738) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Dark pour, tan head. Roasty malts, sweet cocoa, bourbon and oak aroma. Flavor is toasty, a bit rough around the edges, bourbon, oak...ok but not the best from Mikkeller.

Vignale (2848) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 12, 2011
Flaska köpt i Khioskh. Drucken med på ölföreningens julölsprovning. En märklig doft av pepparkakor och dillchips??? Vad är detta? En felaktig flaska. Hur som helst också melass och bourbon. Men dillchipsen finns där i smaken också. Märkligt! Lätt syrlig, söt, kraftig, bra balans men en lite stickig smk som av överhettat sågspån. En liten besvikelse som gör mig något förbryllad. Minns en lagrad vanlig fra til som betydligt bättre.

Dedollewaitor (15066) - Odense, DENMARK - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle @ Vinens Verden, Odense. Pours black with a small creamy white head. Heavy bourbon, hard roast and chocolate. Smooth and oily. A bit too simple, young and the bourbon is not perfectly integrated. Still a decent effort for Mikkeller standards.

JorisPPattyn (8895) - Ursel, BELGIUM - DEC 3, 2011
Huge, dark brown-beige head, over black-brown beer; shards of lace. Sweet chocolate and rumraisins’ nose, and then, increasingly, Bourbon on new oak, vanilla included. Dry, bitterish, very woody and alcoholic - Bourbon and vanilla in the finish. Quite little sweetness, however, and no real bitterness. Chocolate, raisins on alcohol returning, bit of overripe banana. Gradually, a dry bitter-ish ground coffeeflavour creeps in. Very rich, thick & creamy texture, obvious alcoholwarming. Long, complex, fusely aftertaste. Another great, complex and impressive Mikkeller, but again one that is anything but easily drinkable.
