UPDATED: SEP 18, 2021 Liquide noir avec mousse très courte et blanche. Nez café bourbon vanille chêne réglisse. En bouche, c'est une attaque café puissante immédiatement suivie par l'apport du bourbon, de la vanille, du sucre caramélisé et de la réglisse ! Proprement exceptionnel !!! Svesse (11797) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2021 (Bottle) Black colour with brief, foamy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with espresso, dark chocolate, cacao, bourbon, vanilla, wood, burnt sugar and raisins. Malty, roasted, slightly vinous taste with notes of dark chocolate, liquorice, black coffee, bourbon, vanilla, wood, raisins, molasses and a balanced coffee bitterness in a finish with a warming bourbon touch. Full body, quite sweet. Rich and powerful, with a mellow and rounded mouthfeel and great balance. Generous bourbon presence. You can sense the alcohol, but it just adds another layer. Lovely beer! jarvo (1324) - Abingdon, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JAN 1, 2021
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2021 Tan head quickly dissipates to barely cover a still black beer. Big aroma of bourbon and coffee apparent as soon as you open the bottle. Taste is beautifully blended coffee, bourbon and dark fruit, some sweetness from burnt brown sugar. Last beer of 2020 and a great way to end a dog of a year. simontomlinson (4160) - Lancashire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2020 Tight tan head left a cover on a black still body.

Coffee, malt, boozy, raisins, toffee & caramel.
Banging! Zymurgeist2 (4064) - Redwood City, California, USA - DEC 19, 2020
UPDATED: DEC 19, 2020 From bottle to tulip glass. The aroma on this one wafts across the table before you can sit down to enjoy it! Massive bourbon along all fronts. Black with deep brown highlights and a large, chocolate brown head that fades. Aroma is booze and chocolate. Flavor leans into the barrel with full whiskey. Back half is baker's chocolate. Chewy cocoa on the mouthfeel and flavor ends with a slight roast that is wonderful.

UPDATED: OCT 27, 2020 Vi er inne i den mørke avdeling på Mi2 nå, og etter Kingpin Turbo Geezer og Brooklyn Black Ops har seremonimesteren funnet frem denne fra Cardinals innerste gjemmer: nesten helt svart med ok skum. O du salige, her snakker vi om en suveren dybde og smaksrikdom, elegant balansert. Fatlagringen bidrar med vanilje. Dark and powerful. 100Beier (273) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2020
