4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle... This beer rocks!Ö Pours black with a small, creamy, beige head. The bouquet is a hearty, rich assortment of fudge, caramel, light molasses, pouch tobacco, coconut and vanilla. Full-bodied and velvety with modest carbonation. The flavor is boozy and burnt, offering loads of molasses, dried fruits and a vinous hint of brandy. Finishes nutty, caramely and boozy-bitter. World class imperial stout!

27th October 2010
Opaque black - brown beer, tan head. Dark malt and dark chocolate nose with an unfortunate whiff of paint. Light palate with moderate carbonation. Taste follows the nose and that includes that emulsion paint tone that some barrel aged beers suffer from. A little bourbon underneath but the paint overwhelms and I didnít enjoy this at all.

Shared at tasting on May 29, 2010. Thanks Pete! Review from notes.
This beer is black with a thin beige head that leaves no lacing. It has the look of being a very strong stout. There is a huge and powerful aroma with lots of heat coming through in the form of bourbon. Roasted malt is present as well, though secondary to the liquor aroma. This beer has a bold flavor, filled with thick roast and bourbon. To say that there is warming alcohol in the finish is an understatement. Itís definitely a sipper. This is a great beer to share a few ways and sip by the fire.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a thin brown head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, roasted malt, bourbon, and a bit of soy sauce. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, soy sauce, roasted malt, and bourbon, leading to a dry alcoholic finish.

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours an opaque pitch black with a tiny beige head. Nose is dominated by heavy booze and tarish roast. Rich, rich body, lowish carbonation, sweet roast, dark dried fruits and quite some roast. Violent boozy finish. Serious stuff indeed but very enjoyable. 030612

Had this a while back at a tasting. Pitch black pour, small tanned head. Big roasty toasty bourbon filled nose that translates right into the flavor as well. Fair amount of dark chocolate notes mixed with vanilla strewn about. Bit overdone on the bourbon, but not necessarily in the most polite way. Thick thick thick! Damn good brew though!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours jet black into my bruery tulip. Paper thin head and little to no lacing. Aroma is all bourbon, very hot and boozy I can already tell this need some time in the cellar. Taste follows the nose but finishes with coffee and a lingering vanilla. Itís tasty but I think it would be even better with a year on it.
