Bottled. Pours pitch black with a medium sized, lacing, tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and molasses. Sweet flavor that ends up with a little malt bitterness and alcohol notes.. Full bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft to flat carb. An excellent and quite smooth impy.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: Served in a Chouffe glass:
Medium sized, vast but pretty quick changing, mocha brown foamy head on top of a pitch black colored beer.
Aromas of oatmeal, rice, alcohol, spices, wood, light bourbon, some coffee, some roasted barley malts, some liquorice, cream, hint of liquorice, light vinous and some dark chocolate.
Flavours of cream, roast, burned/roasted wood, barley malts roast, spices, light bourbon, light vanilla, light alcohol, light rice, some oatmeal, bitter, coffee, mocha, some hints of chocolate and cacoa, light dry and some flowers.
Aftertaste of coffee, roast (malts and wood), bitters, dry and some creamy spices.
Low carbo, soft silky thicker mouthfeel, medium to full body and an oily texture.
Very well palate. The Bourbon seems just to be mixing in from a younger moment. Guess they should have left the beer for approximately 6 months in the barrel to let the Bourbon take a creamy spicy vanilla hand. But well, this is what we got and I guess we should be happy with it. I am not whining cause it’s still a really good beer!

375 ml bottle @ Timo A.
Pours pitch black color with a small, rapidly dissipating beige head. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, mild red wine notes, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavor of dark berries, roasted malts, tar, honey, some dark chocolate, bourbon, vanilla and some soy. Some mildly disturbing tangy notes here, hoped for smoother experience. Quite complex and tasty but a bit off. Somewhat disappointing.

37,5 cl bottle @ Timo A, BBE 11.12.2022
Aroma is a bit odd and light with rubber and honey. Flavour has stinging whiskey, vanilla, salty licorice, wood and peaty notes. Honey in the background. Heavy stuff, too strong on whiskey.
