Bottle shared at Mikkeller Bar Viktoriagade, july 24th 2014. Thick black body with a small brown head. Aroma of roasted malt, bourbon, cocoa, wood. Taste is a bomb of black coffee, vanilla, chocolate brownies, oak, nice, complex and intense, with a good unfermented honey sweetness, alcohol notes in finish with a pleasant roasty and honey sweet aftertaste. Pretty nice stuff!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 8/15/14. So excited for this. Pours black as night with a creamy, oily brown head. Aroma is honey, alcohol, dark fruits, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, wood (oak), bourbon, toffee, syrup. Lots of wood in the aroma. Smells otherworldly (good). Taste is brilliant; earthy, a little hot, grass, leather, cocoa, roast malts, wood, sweet honey, some surprising notes of light colored fruits, vanilla; finish is lots of roast malt, bourbon, leather. Thin but full lacing. Incredibly rich and full mouthfeel. Medium-low carbonation. I had been looking forward to this for so long and it did not disappoint. Hardcore. Rock and roll. Bourbon barrels, honey, intensity. Yes! Well done.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours inky black in color with deep tan head that held fairly well before fading into a medium collar and wispy head. Aroma is mostly deeply roasted malts, some sweetness either from the bourbon barrels or the honey, oddly indistinct sweetness. I also get some dark fruits in the aroma. Taste is about the same, with some toasted oats coming through. Good full body, silty mouthfeel, and low carbonation.
