Black color with a beige head. Dark malt, some oak and chocolate in the aroma. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Nice balanced stout without being to much of this and that. Chocolate, toffee, bready, mild oak, roasted and some coffee. Nice!

Mouthfeel is soft, velvety, round, tiny roasted astringent and medium to full bodied.

Solid strong stout with a clear but not overwhelming bourbon presence.

Pours with a wild deep red-dark colour, with minimum head, that quickly diminishes. Aroma is Jacky =) Whiskey like, oak cask. Some coffee notes can be detected. Taste is full, pretty sweet. No bitterness, full bodied, coffee aftertaste. An excellently balanced beer, without a doubt.

Bottle. Black with chocolate and coffee flavours merging to create a very easy to drink stout. Notes on the bottle say that it is for breakfast drinking-I don’t think so.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
(330ml bottle @ VilleValla Pub, Linköping, April 9 2015) Pours very dark brown with an average dark tan head. Aroma of coffee, cocoa, roasted malts, toffee, toasted oak, vanilla, hints of JD. The flavour holds fairly sweet and moderately roasted dark malts, light coffee, chocolate, some woody, smoky tones, oaky vanilla, maybe a little fruit, the whiskey cropping up towards the finish but pretty light. Aftertaste mostly coffee roast with a little wood/whiskey/chocolate. Light to medium body, average carbonation, no alcohol. The barrel character is quite reserved and the base stout is nice but not terribly hefty. Quite decent but lacks a bit of punch for me.
