A clear winner of the stout off, the other three were bad to subpar, this shined. Tons of roasty maltyness, those rich thick danish malts are working very well here. Well done!

BOTTLE 33 CL. Vintage 2012. Pitch black, espresso head. Bold aroma of chocolate and coffee liqueur with a touch of alcohol, dried fruit, some barrel notes? (possible, but quite weak), The taste is just as intense, but the sweetness is well hidden by some light acidity, as well as charcoal, alcohol heat. Moderate bitterness. Smooth easy drinking body. Not sure where the bourbon notes are... Excellent!
