3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle.
Pours a black colour with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, butter and wooden notes. Rich flavour of roasted malts, butter, bourbon, wood, licorice and grassy bitterness. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Rich and tasty, a bit too straightforward however. The barrel accompanies the flavours quite nicely. Good stuff.

33 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 03.03.2013, bbe 03.03.2038
Aroma has strong bourbon notes; vanilla and wood and quite nothing else. Flavour is strong on vanilla. Also some woody notes, some butter and bourbon. Quite generic bourbon-aged IS. Nothing disturbing here though.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
smells like oatmeal, vegetables, with a touch of bourbon. Bourbon is more pronounced in the mouth, moderately sweet malty, full body, roasty, slightly syrupy. Fairly well done, but probably could age a bit longer to dry out.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Thick, syrupy, opaque blaque pour with the richest, creamiest brown foam I’ve seen in a while. Aroma is quite bourbony, rich vanilla, bourbon sweetness, coffee, dark chocolate, oak, there is also something a tad off as well though, something slightly metallic perhaps, cheesy, anyways very light. Taste is rich, very bourbon forward, sweet, syrupy, nice roastiness, good warming alcohol. Palate is rich, good carbonation to even things out a bit. Really tasty RIS.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2014 Deep dark / black colour with brown head... vanishes after a while. Smells like bourbon with chocolate. Tastes of Lakrisal, anice, fennel and chocolate. Wooden bourbon touch. Dry and sweet almost like cherries. Heavy alcohol flavour, but not to much! It’s like a dessert :D

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JAN 12, 2014 (Bottling date: 4 March 2013) (Drinking date:10 January 2014). Pitchblack color, no light comes throug it. A thin layer of beige, creamy foam. Aromas: pure chocolate, sweet aroma, roasted malt, raisins a little bit of alcohol, licorice. Carbonaton: just a little bit. Really fine bubbles at the side of the glass. Taste: bitter. Sweet. Pure chocolate. Burned/roasted malt. Figs. Texture: a little bit too watery. It has to be just a little bit thicker, like syrup. That would have made this beer perfect. This is a really good, tastefull beer!!
