_angst_ (2941) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2014
Bottle bought @ bierkompass.de Pours reddish blackish dark brown with a rather big creamy mocha head that slowly dissipates while leaving some thick lacing on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, smoke, charred wood, vanilla fudge, hay, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, burnt grains, red chili, alcohol and hints of manure. Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark chocolate, dark roast coffee, charcoal, steamed paprika, hay, moist soil and hints of alcohol. Mouthfeel is soft, round, roasted astringent and medium to full bodied. Finish is slightly sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, vanilla fudge, dark roast coffee, bitter chocolate, charred wood, hay, steamed paprika, soil and hints of alcohol. Decent but a bit too peppery from the barrel aging.

mcberko (6876) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
375mL bottle, pours jet black with a large lingering beige / tan head. Nose brings lots of roasted malt and dry cocoa powder - not getting any barrel character. Flavour is rich and robust, with roasted malt and dry cocoa powder. Again, not getting any barrel notes, nor liqueur quality. Quite a dry palate, with no residual sweetness, but no harsh roastiness either. All in all, seems more or less the same to the non-BA version, just heightened in flavour and maintaining good balance. Excellent beer.

Bottle 375ml @ Geokkjer
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla and alcohol. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long chocolate, vanilla and coffee finish. Body is full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
