UPDATED: NOV 16, 2019 Holy crap, how have I never rated this? Bottle acquired in 2015 at the earliest...it was just in a basement 20 miles away for the last 4+ years and I found it and was like, 'huh?' anyway, it pours really thick. thicker than an 11% beer should. espressoo color head. aroma is chocolate chip cookies. very creamy frothy thick mouthfeel. quite lovely. very sweet.probably won't finish the entire bomber. little bits of vanilla along with a good whiskey flavor. finish is sweet licorice and maple syrup. tderoeck (14640) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUN 3, 2019

Cloudy black with a lasting, very thin, dark beige head. Deep aroma of vanilla, custard, cream, mocha, brownie, praliné, hazelnut paste, faint soy sauce, candied plum, fig, bourbon. Taste is medium malty sweet, quite chocolatey with a bit of a 'powdery' effect, touch of hazelnut paste too; only subtly balanced by a light roasted bitterness that has mocha, (roasted) nuts, pepper & cinnamon; fruity notes of dried fig & raisin & slightest touch of umami soy in the back. Dryish, peppery hoppy finish, lingering vanilla, chocolate, and the expected warming dash of bourbon alcohol. Full body, oily texture, soft carbonation. More 'drinkable' than expected, softer than the DeCicco Version I had next to it, but still lots of flavours to enjoy of course. Bierridder_S (2086) - Oudenaarde, BELGIUM - MAR 15, 2019

Tasting at Oakes' Manorbeerplace (4841) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 19, 2018
Pitch black colour. Mild aroma: chocolate, marzipan, rubber. The flavour is also marzipan chocolate, a bit artificial, some vanilla, the bourbon seems to have become something else, moderate sweetness. Very phenolic. Rather chaotic.
650ml bottle at Josh&Sunshine place. Very dark brown, beige head. Aroma is molasses, some soy sauce, bourbon. Taste is quite sweet, similar aroma. Good one. llkc (4051) - århus, DENMARK - AUG 15, 2018
