Bottle from brewdog online
Rich and warming but gentle on the bourbon character allowing the base beer to come through, rich, dark, fruity, some vanilla and butterscotch, thick with low carbonation and a long warming finish.

375ml bottle shared by Phil @ Crossroads Spirits. Thanks Phil! Poured a thick oily black color with a small foamy tan head. Big boozy bourbon aroma, some oak, caramel, and dark fruit as well. Taste is much the same. Lots of bourbon and oak, and notes of toffee, roasted malt, and sweet dark fruits.

DesertDevil (487) - Arizona, USA - FEB 27, 2014
2013 bottle. Sharp nose of hot bourbon, plums, some cherries, and surprisingly a bit of oxidation. Pours a murky black with brown accents accompanied by a brief dark espresso head. Boozy bourbon and cherries dominate the taste (the alcohol is quite hot and burns throughout the sips). Light chocolate, some roasted malt, and biscuit, and peanut butter manages to sneak through the booze. Thin body for a beer with "Viscosity" in the name, with a oily texture and sharp, hot finish. Not bad, but it seems I opened this one too soon.

A great beer. Plenty of bourbon and alcohol throughout. Some subtle smokiness as well.

angel77 (788) - oviedo, SPAIN - FEB 22, 2014
Botella de 37.5 cl en el lúpulo, en el momento el 12-02-2014. Increíbles aromas a madera de Barril de bourbon y frutas pasas, caramelo y mucho licor. Con sabores a madera y mas madera de barriles de bourbon muy intensos y ligeramente quemados, con toques dulces (frutas del bosque, uvas y ciruelas pasas, ) y final seco también de madera y amargo bastante duradero. Sensación alcohólica muy intensa con 12 vol que se notan de principio a fin. Alucinante cerveza increíble. De las mejores de la marca hasta el momento. Alucinante muy buena.

Je m’attendais à voir un liquide aussi épais que de la vieille huile à moteur. Or, ça ressemble à un porter classique et ça ne mousse pas fort, sauf qu’on peut la ranimer un peu. Ça sent les fruits secs, les raisins et les dattes en particulier. Y’a aussi des arômes boisés, de mélasse, herbacés avec des vapeurs d’alcool. C’est assez sucré en bouche. La mélasse, qui précède le café-crème avec des saveurs de chocolat noir, pas des plus forts en pourcentage de cacao. Une bonne amertume tape sur le palais et prend un certain temps à dégouliner. L’alcool est des plus réconfortant finalement. Vintage 2013 (979-200114)
