4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Aroma of dried apricot, plum slightly bourbon, taste is sweet with a lingering sour in the finish, appearance is a muddy. It pours like syrup, and feel the same on the palate. Its sweetness and full body make it kinda an intense experience. I can’t imagine enjoying a pint but sharing a 750ml is perfect.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy brown from the bottle with a thin ring of red brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is vanilla, oak, slight dark fruit, and a hint of sweetness from the malt. Taste is a nice balance of the vanilla and oak from the bourbon barrel and the typical sweetness and dark fruitiness of a quad. A hint of burn on the way down, but not crazy sweet, very nice for the price.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Appearance: copper color and cloudy. Pours a thin ½” head that recedes quickly and leaves slight lacing.
Aroma: this brew is aged in bourbon barrels and the aroma makes that evident. Also pick up some fruity aroma (almost wine like), some clove, and a bit of hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and somewhat sticky, finish is dry and somewhat boozy.
Flavor: bourbon, cinnamon, cloves, vanilla, raisins, and some hops.
Overall: This is an outstanding beer.

Very little head, pours deep amber. Malty, oaky aroma with bourbon tones. Deep oak flavor with malty and slightly awry undertones. Balanced flavor and not too boozy. Caramel and vanilla hints as well. Tasty, strong brew.

Reddish brown pour with off white head. Aroma is faint sweet. Taste is an explosion of sweet raisin and licorice. Alcohol spreads on the roof of the mouth.

thnx to misterhangover! at rampkrot whale tasting, drank the day after ( it was closed by a corck, so the diffrence should not be that big )
diffrent label though, the bottle ive got now is a blue label, with a cross and a raven .
pours redicolously light. i expected it do be near black, what i get is dark amber / copper. no real foam ( can be cause it was opened )
smell is surprisingly boozy, some sugar notes.
taste is stong, ( in alcohol-) but very light in mouthfeel. good carbo though! i get some bourbon, but not muich else. and the bourbon aint even super-intense...
realy drinkable for the ABV and the boozyness is has. prob cause of the light mouthfeel ?

Bottle, thnx to Budznudz, shared at Rampkrot tasting. Pours a clear brown, reddish beer with a small, off white head on top. Aroma of caramel, ripe red fruits and some touches of Belgian yeasts. Some slight oaky touches in there as well, sharing some vanilla notes. Pretty awesome aroma. Flavour is medium sweet with an alcoholic bite to it, that starts directly. Nicely balanced between boozyness and quad influences, making it a medium sweet, easy enjoyable beer. Very nice.
