Gold wax. The pour is black. The aroma is sweet bourbon. The taste is a little hot upfront, but is smooth. Some sweetness overall that I wish the bourbon would cut more. Very solid beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Taste is sweet, bitter and malty with roasted malts, burnt caramel, vanilla fudge, charred wood, dark chocolate, brown sugar sweetened dark roast coffee, dates, dark chocolate, moist soil and intense bourbon alcohol. Mouthfeel is fat, round, round, slightly sticky sweet, boozy and near full bodied.

humlelala (1058) - DENMARK - DEC 20, 2014
(65 cl bottle courtesy of my beer saint Ryan, thanks a lot! 2013 vintage) Poured into a burgundy glass revealing pitch black body, with little to no head but a toffee rim along the side of the glass a bit like a monk’s hairdo. Swirling the glass leads to a little head about half a finger in height. Putting the glass at an angle reveals some fine, pearly, lace that slides down slowly. Aroma is surprisingly subdued, the initial impression being one of bourbon with an undercurrent of vanilla and syrup. Perhaps it will reveal more as it warms. Mouthfeel is oily, bordering on the creamy. Rather full-bodied and sweet without being cloying. I don’t detect much carbonation, but some must be there for the head to regenerate. Flavour is predominently sweet with aroma notes and the alcohol is lethally well-marked, like an assassin. This somehow reminds me of the Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter except the coffee is less pronounced here.
