Bottle @ Dangerous Bottleshare featuring Lukas and Aaron. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma of whiskey, toffee, chocolate, dry dark fruits, vanilla, caramel, cocoa beans and weak coconut. Just can just feel the awesome base beer in this as well. The taste is sweet yet dry and with a silky body. Notes of spicy whiskey, cocoa, vanilla, caramel, liquorice, nice dark malts, and some coffee bitterness. Awesome!

(Dégustation avec kzeon et yourilevesque. Merci à Youri pour cette chance!) Une belle petite mousse flotte sur un liquide presque noir. Au nez, une tonne de malts rôtis et torréfiés, une pointe de fumée, du chocolat, du whisky, de la vanille, du bois noirci et du café. Au goût, rien pour déplaire dans cette construction noire robustement fignolée aux notes puissantes mais complexes et savoureuses. En bouche, bon corps arrondi avec des bulles douces et une texture soyeuse. En finale, un mélange de notes douces de chocolat, du café amer et de la vanille. Très bon!

Many thanks to Matt for this one! Man, that was a great treat!! Magnifique bière parfaitement noire à la mousse claire et collante à mon verre. Une importante quantité de malts rôtis libérant une juste torréfaction tandis que mon narines sont amusées par une réglisse noire liquoreuse. Des fruits noirs tels la mûre et la cerise noire font également un travail remarquable! Saveurs de malts torréfiés en abondance. Une belle amertume émane de ces malts rôtis. L’alcool n’est pas dissimulé et ça me plaît ainsi car cet alcool de barrique apporte un bel équilibre au chocolat vanillé. Effervescence intéressante pour une bière de ce type. Vraiment très agréable!

Vestergaard (1434) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2015
Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares Feat Lukas&Aaron! Got this in a trade. Pours a pitch black with a small, lasting, tan head. Looks great! Aroma is pretty sweet. Lots of coffee, toffee, caramel, coconut, labre larver, bourbon-like whiskey notes, vanilla, mild roast. Taste is sweet and fudgy with lots of caramel notes, and you can actually taste the malts in this one. Cocoa, roasty and coffee bitterness. Lovely, oily, spicy, vanilla-barrel-characters. Nice low carbonation and a thick body. Good stuff!

Part of a BBA IS blind tasting. This actually was near the bottom. Kind of boozy, alcohol, sweet dark sugar, molasses, dark fruit, chocolate, bourbon, and vanilla. Pretty nice, not great.

Stoned99 (1019) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2015
12 ounces on tap at brewpub. Aroma: lots of bourbon, alcohol and subtle roasted malt aroma. App: pitch dark with small brown head, nice lacing. Taste and palate: full body, smooth but quite strong which doesn’t bother me at all. Medium sweetness, light bitter and alcohol finish. Overall: this is so good. Quite heavy and big but this is quite awesome. Would love to be able to get some bottles of this one.
