4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. XV edition. Pours near pitch black with a deep rising mocha colored head that settles to a cap with nice lacing. Aromas of deep roasted coffee, anise, light brown sugar, light vanilla and wet oak bourbon. Taste follows the nose with a nice harmony between the sweet chocolate, vanilla, brown sugar and bourbon notes to the bitter coffee and anise. Medium to heavy bodied, slightly creamy, slightly oily. Really nice beer!!

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2015 Tap, 2013, hopcat- aroma is bourbon, licorice, coffee, and vanilla. Taste has a bit of a harshness to it compared to the no ba version- in a good way, big flavor, a bit of a chalk finish

Cervesa amb un aroma bastant alcoholic, en boca es nota més el gust a xocolata i un amargor torrat.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours dark brown, edging black. Aroma is sweet, heavy, sticky with all those dark fruity flavours and a bit of booze. Taste has a lot of sweetness, bourbon barrel coming through nicely, does not feel too heavy but rather nice, great for sipping. Some roast flavour complementing the sensation, vanilla. Great warming beer.
