Bottle @ Papsø. Pours a dark brown color with a small tan head. Has a sweetish roasted malty chocolate and vanilla flavor with weak hints of bourbon. Sweetish malty bitter chocolate and vanilla flavor with woody bourbon hints. Has a sweetish roasted malty warming chocolate and vanilla finish.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2013 Poured from a 2013 bottle. The appearance is cloudy dark brown with no head at all. The aroma (wow!) is incredible, with a heavy boozy nose mixed with chocolate and sweet molasses. In my humble opinion, this has the second-best aroma for a stout I’ve ever tried (after Southern Tier’s Creme Brulee Stout). Unlike the 2012 vintage, the beer doesn’t hammer the taste buds on the first sip; instead the hot bourbon, dark chocolate, and a nice roasted sweetness combine for a more refined submission of the palate. Some vanilla joins the party late. A very hot, dry palate that finishes quickly. While it’s still a boozy beast, this vintage isn’t as hot as previous releases. Overall, just freakin’ gorgeous.

jesperhammer (3299) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 2, 2012
22-MAR-2012, bottle @Papsø. Black, low almost no beige head. Wauw. Bourbon nose, chocolate, and alcohol, but hey... ...no way near 18%. Taste is dark fruits, chocolate, and bourbon. "Morten, hvor blev du af...? Best chocolate beer ever. No way as dense as expected. That is actually surprising given the 18% ABV. But taste is out of this world:-)

CaraCurtis (117) - Nevada, USA - APR 1, 2012
Aroma is upfront in your face incredible. Heat. Dark brown, not thin. The palate does not linger, its hot, overall nice. No head/lacing. Sweet. Aroma brings some vanilla, booze, molasses, slight cocoa/very slight. Wood/molasses in taste, cocoa making a small appearance. Heat is present along the entire way. It’s crazy good.

kylefleeger (105) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 1, 2012
Pours black with hints of dark red. Aroma is booze, vanilla, plums and cocoa. Smells so hot and taste matches. Very sweet hot and has smokey molasses and wood balanced by cocoa and vanilla. Amazing!

beernbourbon (1357) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Bottle with huge thanks to John!!! Pour is lighter than expected but still dark brown with almost no head. Looks kind of like brandy in the glass but a little darker. Aroma is very intense with huge sweet malt, huge vanilla, tons of cocoa, light fruit, and chocolate brownie. Flavor is wicked sweet malt with loads of brown sugar, light coffe, faint cocoa, milk chocolate, vanilla, coconut, and a touch of butterscotch. I really love beers on the edge and this is it. So huge and so deep. I love this. Very little alcohol notable.

jckp64 (356) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 30, 2012
Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate and lots of booze. Flavor is very sweet. Lots of vanilla, chocolate, booze. Has a really strong alcohol finish to this one. Great beer, but a little sweet. Much better as it warms up.

alpar (160) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2012 Almost as dark as Black Tuesday bud there are some red hues that peak through the glass on the edges. Smells like a vanilla BOMB. Brownie batter and fudge syrup, this is killer, bourbon, chocolate, malt and vanilla. This shit is divinity in a cup.

On tap at Bruery RS Party. Similar to Black Tuesday review which makes sense. I really did not get as much vanilla as I hoped for but the chocolate was there. Not as sweet as BT. Phenomenal beer on its own no doubt but I enjoyed BT a tad more. Could use some age. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
