vanilla, woody, chocolate, roasty, coffee, nuts, alcohol, licorice, soy sauce, raisin, rich and rewarding! Black colour, medium Brown head, lacing. Heavy, heavy sweetness, salty, acidic, medium bite, lots of lovely bourbon-notes, lots of chocolate and licorice, ABV evident, but not boozy. Velvety Smooth, oily, fullbodied to say the least, soft carbonation, warming finish. A tad too sweet, but a world class treat!

I was happy to get my hands on this. Not every day I get to rate a 100/100 beer. Expensive for sure ($15-16 for a 12.7 oz. bottle) so it better be worth it. Aroma is heavy oak barrel, prune and other dark fruit, leather and plenty of booze. Appearance is a 5 right out of the gate. Pitch black, thick and virtually free of any foam. The tiny amount of foam the beer does have is a light tan color. It really does look like old motor oil. Tastes almost sour, raisin like at first, but then oak, roast, milk chocolate and coffee flavors take over, leaving a warming finish. Let this beer warm up a bit as it brings out the oak flavors even more.

SinH4 (1251) - Garching, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Black color with nice and stable tan ring. Dark malts, motor oil, sweet and not sweet at the same time, crazy viscosity. Vanilla, bourbon, etc. Just like the Old Viscosity on steroids. Hard to imagine that one can take this so far. Amazing intensity!

Flaska på bishops, Linköping. Doft av Bourbon, vanilj, torkade frukter och kola. Mjuk och len smak av detsamma plus en värmande alkohol. Mycket god!

Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. Thick oily black pour. Aroma of chocolate and vanilla mostly. Taste is extremely rich, with lots of oaky vanilla, chocolate and a milky creamy touch. Fantastic.
