wedgie9 (2004) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Tasted on 12/26/11 from a bottle. Pours absolute black with a thick tan head that slowly recedes to average lacing. The nose is darkly roasted with dark chocolate, molasses, coffee, and underlying bourbon and vanilla notes. The flavor is very dry with all of the roasted dark notes from the nose and the vanilla, caramel, and whiskey notes more prevalent. The body is full with average carbonation and a long dark chocolate, coffee, and light bourbon finish.

Benzai (8545) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2012
Bottle thanks to Dutchdrebus. Pitch black opaque color, small to medium sized light brown head that leaves a fine lacing. Strong aroma of bourbon barrel aging, very distict smell of bourbon and wood. Taste lightly malts, wood, bourbon, lightly sweet and a bit dry aftertaste. A bit thin texture, warming mouthfeel.

Mora2000 (5780) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JUN 30, 2012
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. This is my 100th Mikkeller rating. The beer pours a black color with a tan head. The aroma is full of chocolate and roasted malt, but it also features a hint of oak and some bourbon whiskey notes. The flavor is heavier on the barrel-aged notes. I get a lot of oak and bourbon, as well as some chocolate and roasted malt. Thick mouthfeel and low carbonation.

beernbourbon (1313) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bottle. Pour Is deep brown with a very large brown head. Aroma is smooth and creamy roasted malt with notes of cocoa, coffee, faint spice, toffee, and faint vanilla. Flavor is rosted malt with hints of coffee, faint holiday spice and a faint musty note. Not too much bourbon present. It’s like a good standard porter with a hint of spice and a hint of sweetness.

Rich dark chocolate, fairly fruity, plum, fig, oaky, a little burnt, toffee, a bit smoky, light whiskey flavor with more whiskey on the warming finish. Not bad.
