Aroma is rich from the barrel notes. Bourbon, vanilla and wood. Also coffee and raisins. Taste is sweet, roasted malts, licorice, dried dark fruits. I don’t like that tiny sour twist in the end though. I guess it’s from the barrel ageing? Sour wood. Other than that, good stuff. Mad_Ferret (1019) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
Bottle from SB.
Dark brown, almost black, thick slow building tanned head.
Sweet chocolate sauce and bourbon aroma. Slight hard boozy woody from the bourbon, but overall fairly smooth.
Taste is sweet and meaty with chocolate, slight tar and licorice, bourbon and vanilla. Dry warming finish.
Big body, soft carbonation, oily silky texture.
Big and sweet, distinct flavours, quite balanced and drinkable. Good stuff! Brewhemia (313) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 9, 2016
Very dark brown with almost no head. Sweet gentle aroma of vanilla and honey. The taste is sweet vanilla and honey as well but also smooth chocolate and coffee flavors. A gentle bitterness in the finish offers balance. Really the moneys worth in flavor. TychoJames (1316) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2016
