English: A very smooth version of Xbeeriment Black Force One with complex notes of maple syrup and oranges from the Bourbon blending in with the roastiness and hoppiness of the imperial stout. An extremely complex beer. Only 375 bottles made.

Limited edition bottle numbered as #41 of total 371 shared at the daje & esp0r hits #1000 rates sessions.
Pours black with a tanned head. Smells of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts and caramel. Taste is heavy sweet, quite boozy. The bourbon is a very dominating factor in the flavor. Moderate bitter, quite fuzzy mouthfeel. Compared to the non-barrelled version this is a step down. Unbalanced, too much bourbon. And the hops from the original is sadly gone (due to barrell of course)

Drukket på hytta til dag med entusiaster. Mørk, nesten svart, med mye skum, lukter utrolig godt smaker heftig av mørkbrent malt, frukt og karamell, smaker litt mye alkohol/bourbon

berlinoise2go (626) - NORWAY - SEP 22, 2012
Bottle (50cl) from Ølbutikken, Copenhagen. Huge, beige, bubbly head with good retention - settles as a thick film with some lacing. Black colour. Very rich aroma of roasted malt, licorice, coffee, whisky, chocolate, cream. Silky smooth mouthfeel, soft carbonation with a slightly prickly sensation. Taste is initially semisweet and becomes gradually more bitter, finishes with a menthol-like, slightly papery dryness.

Dashimus (225) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 28, 2012
Cask. Pours black with no head. Almost no carbonation. Very strong bourbon smell. Very difficult to smell anything past it. Taste is again dominated by bourbon but with some subtle spice and hint of pepper. Difficult to tell what beet would have tested of prior to aging. Typical chocolate or coffee flavours appear absent. Quite a dry finish.
