In my notes I describe the appearance of this beer with one word ... beauty. Very much like the Old Viscosity in its aroma and flavor, but more so on the oak and the bourbon. You must be a bourbon fan to enjoy this beer. But if you are you will love it.

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

Torrefacto (894) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 12, 2015
Negro opaco y giste beis compacto y muy duradero. Aromas de bourbon, cacao, frutos rojos vainilla y tostados muy intensos. Cuerpo medio alto, inicio dulce, con presencia evidente de bourbon, pasas, vainilla y frutos rojos. El final es de un amargor intenso que contrasta bien, muy tostado.

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.

Someone I know thought it was humorous that I said I was raging to try this beer, but I’m telling you that every time I saw the bottle my taste buds would start doing jumping jacks to get ready...in case I decided to make the leap.This beer comes with a rep. The cork comes free with a practiced wrist and a coaxing tug, releasing the aroma immediately and allowing my watering mouth a suggestive tease. I tip the glass and pour slowly, watching the thick, black-walnut flow broach the rising head; a foam the color of dark mocha, deep, wet and soft. The thick cap vanishes into a swirling galaxy on the surface in a matter of minutes. The aroma is chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, becoming more heady and aromatic over the course of the review. I tip the glass and pull the brew slowly through my mouth, feeling the cool liquid find its way beneath the soft undersides of my tongue, stinging it just a touch. Dark, bourbon-soaked, over-ripe fruits come alive in the flavor and accent the dark chocolate perfectly, the vanilla still very apparent in the aroma and adding a mellow groove to the experience. The heavy body is a bit oily, not sticking to my tongue, but glancing over it, the carbonation is soft and the finish only long enough to make me think I should have bought another bottle.

sampler that poured almost black with smallish mocha head. the aroma was heavenly. dark roasted malts and chocolate, booze, oak, vanilla, deep and true. the flavors held most of the same absolutely wonderful. nice boozey note to it...blended with the malts and chocolate, oak, vanilla, be still my beating heart.

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!
