Big big thanks to Galen!!! Gorgeous, rich black pour with a dense beige head. Nose and flavor are really impressive; the coffee is definitely still there, with espresso and dark chocolate and touches of vanilla. Dry, very roasty on the palate. Excellent.

Bottle. Black body with a small frothy beige head. Strong coffee aroma with chocolate hints, bourbon, wood. Taste of roasted malt, vanilla, dark chocolate and a warm boozy bourbon sting. Thick body, light smoky finish with bourbon and roasted malt. Nice barrelling in this one.

Bottled from Biernavigatie, BB 2023, large sample, served in a tulip glass. Dark color, medium brown head. Aroma of spicy coffee, dark chocolate, roasted malts, slight biscuity bourbon but not much, molasses. Quite bitter in taste, caramelly sweetness. Quite sticky palate, quite some alcohol. I totally miss the vanilla and biscuit from the bourbon. Also, not much coffee around, but thats a good thing :P. Very enjoyable, but I expected more bourbon.

@Basunen 14-8-20: lite svårdefinierad doft av fat men också lite kokta grönsaker. Smaken ha en fin balans mellan söt bourbon och torr kaffe. Även tyvärr lite hint av broccoli. God men bara så.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks ArizviSG. Pours black with a dark tan wave. Slightly smoky, ink and breadcrumbs in the nose, bitter and a little alcoholic in the mouth. Roasty finish, smooth and very woodsy.

12oz draft at BierCab in Barcelona. Pours an opaque black with some lacing, creamy, tan head. Nose is fairly mild for what the flavor imparts, chocolate, malt, toast, a little molasses, some creamy grits. Flavor has more of the oak and booze I expected, caramel, vanillin, some grape jelly, molasses, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. Creamy finish with just a bit of alcohol heat.
