from Erzbierschof - black beer under a long lasting dark beige foam; strong woody aroma, notes of roasted malts, licorice and black cherries; fairly astringent, a good malt body, a subtle carbonation and a strong bitterness; heavy woody notes in the finish; pretty dry with more licorice, chocolate and whisky notes

Not used to the barrel ages thing on just black ales. Nice, adds another dimension to the beer.

Bottle sampled at ’t Klooster, Delft, thanks to sic1314, Pours kinda black with a lacy brown head. Aroma is bourbon, malts, caramel, some grass and booze. Taste is moderate sweet and light to moderate bitter. Medium bodied with thin texture. Very pleasant, bourbon works well on this one. Still quite light and easy to drink.

Bottled, large sample. Dark color, short brown head. Aroma of bourbon, biscuit and vanilla, some roasted malt, hint of coffee, red fruit. Biscuity sweetness and bitter roasted malts in taste, hint of alcohol from the bourbon. Bit thin, but aroma is wonderful.

UPDATED: FEB 22, 2014 03.10.2013, 0,35l bottle @ home:
Nice slightly brown creamy longlasting head. Aroma is sweet bourbon-ish, vanilla, coconut, toffee, dark sugar, dark malts, hints of oak and dark fruits. Taste is slightly sour-ish, dark malts, oak, grass, almond essence, dark sour fruits, sour coffee, hints of ashtray, vanilla and alcohol. Medium bitterness, very thin body. Better than the regular one, but still crap!

355ml bottle. Black, as expected, with a brown head that settles to nothing much at all. Great aroma of chocolate and bourbon. Something fruity lurking at the edges. Oily, slightly syrupy mouthfeel with dark maltiness. Something umami, almost BBQ sauce-like too. Pretty good.
