yngwie (14629) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, 375ml corked. Looking really good in the glass, jet black, and topped by a finger-thick, dense, tan head. The aroma is roasted and coffeeish, with a pleasant hoppyness in the back, and a tad too much vanilla and bourbon. Sweet, vanilla and booze-ish flavor with coffee, roasted malts and some medicine hints. Full-bodied, smooth and warming on the palate, finishing lightly medicinal and quite bitter. A really nice beer, but a bit on the sweet side, and I have to admit I prefer the untreated edition. 120203

badlizard (5536) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle from Beer Revolution. Black with a thin creamy tan head. Earthy and musty chocolate coffee roasted cereal grain and whiskey aroma. I know it says bourbon but peaty scotch flavors dominate with light smoke and a nice oaky woodiness with chocolate and coffee flavors playing nicely throughout with an earthy peaty ashy roasted malt finish with just a hint of tobacco. Very good silky bright palate. Excellent brew with a nice complexity. It would pair well with a cigar in my opinion.

Opaque black color, small brown head. Bourbon in the nose, toasted notes. Medium-bodied. Lots of bourbon, roasted maltyness, vanilla. Quite simple and booze, but not bad.

lusikka (6688) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2012
375 ml bottle @ vPBF 2012.
Pours a pitch black colour with a creamy beige head. Aroma of strong dry wood, raisins and dark chocolate. Flavour of roasted malts, cream, citric tartness, dry wood, dark chocolate, cream and very smooth bourbon notes. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel and a long, warming, bourbon finish. A bit too much on the tart side, so this isnít at itís best anymore.

brokensail (12022) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 9, 2012
The beer is almost black in color with a khaki colored head. Nose starts off with dark/burnt sugar, roasted malt, and a bit of alcohol. Very little in the way of oak or bourbon. Maybe just a touch of vanilla. There is a little bit of dark chocolate, too. Sweet sugar, roasted malt, and dark chocolate make up the majority of the flavor profile. Like with the aroma, light bourbon, vanilla, and oak notes. Some hints of dark fruits and a nice sweetness.
