Bottle at tasting. Black pour. Aroma of delicious bourbon vanilla, milk chocolate, creamy coffee and soft red fruit. Taste has creamy vanilla, soft bourbon booze, smooth chocolate, coffee, red fruit and creamy roasted malt. Sticky mouthfeel, really long delicious finish. This is how a bourbon ba coffee ris should be. Extreme flavors, but with great balance. Fantastic.

MrOrla (2572) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2017
Can @ SEP3DH. Pours black with tan head. Aroma of huge coffee, vanilla, slick borubon, licorice, savory, light spice, roasty malts, some dark and milky chocolate. Taste is rather sweet, loads of roasty charater, the coffee blends well with the barrel, slight boozy - heavy in all aspects, a sipper.

on tap @Alus Celle,
Big beer! Pours pick black, thick with nice dark brown/violet top. Aroma- massive vanilla reminder plus notes of roast, wood and seemed also as unroasted coffee beans, sweet maltiness. Taste is moderate sweet, medium to high bitterness, pleasant full bodied mouthfeel, thick as cream texture, enough lasting bitter/roast aftertaste. Indeed enjoyed, aroma blew my mind.
