03-JUN-2012, bottle @home, from "Fish @ Beer", thx Minitøser.
Black with lasting creamy brown head.
Roasted with chocolate. Loads of bourbon, vanilla, oak, soy.
Full but not really as imperial as some but just makes it more drinkable.
Sweet, long roasted finish.

33 cl bottle @ hotel room, copenhagen
Vertical with basic (2010) version
Flavour is quite different from the basic version with vanilla and bourbon notes. And hints of cocoa. Flavour has lots of vanilla, some bourbon notes and hints of coffee. Warming alcohol in the finish. Much better than the basic version.
