dark brown colour, surprisingly large brown head; aroma of whisky, vanilla and herbal notes, some coffee, hints of smoke, minimal dried fruits and alcohol; taste is the same...to be honest, similarly to Old viscosity, it is definitely not my style - nevertheless, it is probably a perfect and amazing beer, so this must be my fault.

375cl bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown/black with a thin head. Little amount of carbonation and quite an unexpectedly thin mouthfeel. Aroma is neat whiskey with none of that lovely buttery bourbon character a la Deliverance. Massively disappointed with this one. Tastes like a poorly executed imperial stout with cheap bourbon poured in with no balance at all. This is coming from a Port Brewing/Lost Abbey fan boy. Do not understand the hype this beer has.

Thanks to my friend Rob for this one! Cheers man! Une mousse crémeuse d’un pouce se forme lors du service et fond malheureusement rapidement sans toutefois disparaître complètement. Me montent au nez les signes évidents d’un vieillissement en barriques d’un Bourbon chaud et familier. À ces vapeurs boisées et vanillées se joignent des arômes de datte ainsi que d’une très subtile torréfaction. Une trace de réglisse rouge peut-être également. Une explosion calorifique de bourbon en bouche! Le liquide est très pétillant, bien aminci par la barrique sans souffrir d’une acidité indésirable. Un manque de corps lui fait légèrement défaut à mon avis. Des notes très vanillées qui ici tirent sur le café en grain et le caramel. Se boit très agréablement.

Bottle to a tulip. As dark and thick as 30W with a foaming mocha head. Huge Bourbon nose perfectly balanced with toasted malt, vanilla and coffee notes. Sweet boozy finish... Fantastic BBA RIS.

fkoolen (862) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle at home. Pitch black colour, brown foamy head. Amazingly rich bourbon nose, sweet roasted malts and vanilla oak in perfect balance. Taste is roasted malty too, vanilla, dried fruits, big velvety bourbon finish, slightly bitter with some leather and smoke. Lingering sweet bourbon finish. Firm body, low carbonation, oily palate.

emartell (332) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - MAR 6, 2016
Las notas son intensas destacando los aromas a Bourbon. De color completamente negro, carbonatacion baja, Corona de espuma abundante de baja retención. Perfectamente equilibrada en boca. Sumamente compleja, muy bien balanceada, equilibrada y redonda, algo complejo en una cerveza de 12% ABV, y añejada por 6 meses en barricas de Bourbon. Una cerveza que se disfruta de principio a fin....

Refrigerated 12.7 oz. brown bottle from mrburd corked and capped poured into a tulip. Black with small light brown head. Aroma is nice bourbon, medium body, medium carbonation, and thin small-bubble lacing. Taste is bourbon, molasses, vanilla, oak, hints of leather, and dark malt. Good beer.
