Bottle. Very dark brown/black with a tan head. Sweet chocolate, vanilla, brownies, smokey peat, earthy, bourbon, oak, and somewhat sugary. Tasty smokey stout. Well worth trying.

500 ml bottle, back label says it was brewed for Xbeeriment by Bryghus Roskilde. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head that sticked around a while. There’s also a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice, the brew smells like bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malt, chocolate and coffee. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some booze, peaty smoke and licorice. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it’s slick, creamy, smooth and easy to drink. Moderate carbonation. I thought this was a good overall brew. $13.99 a bottle.

jbruner (2356) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle thanks to trade with jdb288! Pours a thick jet black with thin lacy tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is definitely the bourbon barrel up front with boozy oak and vanilla, but hints of smoke and chocolate behind. Taste is more balanced toward the smoke, but still booze heavy, a tad acrid. Bitter bite behind the sweetness, mild carbonation. Solid beer.

Bottle shared with the table @ Radio Maria. Wow, only 375 bottles made and we were offered this by Matt (not even on the beer list!). Viscous near black. Aroma is sweet chocolate, coffee, and wood. Flavours are deep and rich, chocolate, coffee, maple syrup, vanilla bourbon. Velvety smooth. Wonderful.

Habanero (2664) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - JAN 10, 2014
Tap. Pours pitch black with a medium sized, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, chocolate, dark fruits and bourbon. Sweet flavor that ends up more dry and with alcohol notes. Full bodied, oily text and soft carb. An excellent impy.
