Plovmand (7290) - Helsinge, DENMARK - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle at home. Pours jet black with a medium creamy beige head. The aroma is burned roasted with some spicy notes. Sure some bourbon there. The flavour is bourbon, roasted malt, hops and soy. Dominated by the bourbon. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I expected this to be a monster but it was nothing of the sort. Aroma, although very strong bourbon was nowhere near as heavy as I expected. Taste also strong bourbon but somewhat thinner mouthfeel than the hype promised. A little too heavy on the bourbon and a little too lacking in depth. A great porter but my expectation was higher.

VsXsV (3645) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2012
Bottle. Opaque black liquid with medium to big tan head. Aroma of vanilla, buttery bourbon, wood, toffee, chocolate, light coffee, caramel and raw sugar. Some light dark fruit as well. Taste is light sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of licorice, bourbon and light chocolate. Reminds me of julmust. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. A bit thin. Lovely aroma but both taste and body is a bit disappointing. Too bad.

Theydon_Bois (15008) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2012
Bottle at home (Beers of Europe) 16/12/12. Pitch black with a good tan head that thins but retains as a film and around the edge. Nose is roast malt, bourbon, wood, chocolate, sweet dark sugars. Taste comprises roast malts, sweet sugars, bourbon evident, mineral tones, chocolate, wood tones. Full bodied with fine carbonation, a touch of spritz, sweet finish with a touch of booze. Excellent beer, alcohol is well hidden, good balance between the sugar and the booze.

DesertDevil (675) - Arizona, USA - DEC 15, 2012
12.7 oz.  bottle, dark dark brown with smooth dark beige head, strong aroma of bourbon and licorice (maybe rhubarb). Smooth texture. Bourbon forward with bitter chocolate. Almost sour finish, dry. Nice, but bourbon tones are still a bit heavy, would benefit from another year of aging.

SirLimpsalot (3120) - SWEDEN - DEC 1, 2012
@ Mikkeller Bar: Trevlig rostade toner, små ek toner och en tydlig söt ton från bourbon-fatet. Trevlig söt eftersmak,

Cask at the Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Poured black with a frothy tan head and some short-lived broken lace. The aroma is smoky and the bourbon is very prominent. The flavour is dominated by the bourbon but its not overpowering. There is chewy malt coffee and liqourice in there too. I'd have preferred something a little smoother and I think it should have been served a little warmer too, bit it's still a great beer.

On tap at Mikkeller Bar, November 2012. Almost black with a small tan head. Aroma and taste of roasted malt, wood, some bourbon and notes of alcohol. The finish was on the sweet side with a light tartness.
