2010 batch, pours a dirty bright medium brown, nice tan head, great lace... STRONG nose, tons of smooth bourbon, light vanilla, nice malts, oak, almost perfect... The taste is equally outstanding as more vanilla then bourbon shows through, lots oak adds bittering balance... Excellent, not sure how you could improve this

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2012 Clear copper color, short head. Lovely aroma of bourbon, which blends well with the caramel and hops from the behemoth. Much better for me than the special dark lord.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ Mikkeller Bar, Cph.
Pours muddy amber with a small, off-white film head. Heavy hoppy vinious aroma, fine oakiness, pine, apple and a bit of alcohol sharpness. Low carbonation, fat and oily palate. Flavour is quite sweet, some vanilla peeps out under the caramel malts, light sugary feel with a fine balanced and heavy bitterness. Very warming finish. Nice, but a tad too sweet and a bit too strong in alcohol.
