4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
