Bottle from a trade. Nose is moderate booziness with a touch of sherry oxidation. Light dried fruits, figs. Dark brown to black, medium sized, light brown head. Actually laces well. Taste is immediately boozy followed by a string alcohol warming. Second sip shows some licorice, anise, and some more oxidation, but isn’t papery. Overall pretty decent. The barrel seems to mask most of the beer though.

Bottle. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark syrup, dried fruits and coffee with destintive bourbon notes; oak, tar, smoke. The flavours starts sweet but finish dry with a lasting bourbon booze heat. It is a Full-body beer with a sticky texture. Lively carbonation actually. Intens and good.

Huge and kicking beer even after busy tasting evening. Perfect nose, roast and toast maltiness, vanilla, bourbon, wood notes, light licorice dark choco, dark dried fruits. Vinous and smooth, nicely warming. Moderate sweet with moderate bitterness. Highly enjoyable. Was really impressed as it was late evening..

mariuspoenari (1291) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 13, 2015
Pitch black, thick pour, with a dark espresso head that gives way to a thin lacing. Huge bourbon aroma, maple syrup, vanilla, coffee, cocoa. Caramel, maple syrup and bourbon taste up front, followed by dark cherries, some brandy, vanilla, cocoa, coffee, chiles. Soft mouthfeel, medium carbonation (a bit too much for this style of beer) and medium-light body, with a hot and bitter aftertaste, like after eating a chilli dark chocolate.

Bottle. Pours black, small head. Aroma of vanilla and chocolate with fruity notes and licorice in the back. In taste sweet with distinct vanilla and coffee flavours backed by medium bitterness and hint of alcohol. Oily in texture, softly carbonated. Very well done.

tricksta_p (3254) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle at home. 2014 vintage. Aroma is lots of vanilla, chocolate, lots of Bourbon, malt, oak, dried dark fruits, raisins, liquorice, caramel. Flavour is sweet, body is full, a bit creamy texture. Massive Bourbon and vanilla, heavy but for its ABV this is fairly easily drinkable. Smooth and creamy, rich and complex. Delicious.
