wedgie9 (2631) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 1, 2014
Tasted on 2/7/14 from a bottle at the Friday night tasting at RBWG Asheville, big thanks to Leighton for sharing. Pours dark oily brown with an average brown head that leaves an average collar of lace. The nose is dry coffee, chocolate brownie, along with some vanilla and coconut oak. The flavor is the same with the chocolate brownie, and even a bit more oak than the nose. The body is full with just under average carbonation and a long bourbon brownie finish. Overall, not the darkest stout, more focused on milk chocolate than coffee or dark roast.

Rasmus40 (17532) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 19, 2015
Bottle @ Bishops Arms Savoy, Malmö. Black with a lasting light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, wood, light woody sour and bourbon. Flavor is quite sweet, rather bitter and light acidic. Dry, rather bitter and light acidic finish with a little warming alcohol. I don’t know whether the wild touch was on purpose or not, but it worked well. 190815
