Bottle. Black with a small tan head. Aroma of dark chocolate, wood and vanilla. Same in the taste along with some burnt sugar and a little liquorice. Slightly oily and sweet but any alcohol burn has mellowed nicely. klm1 (1501) - Bled/SF, - SEP 14, 2016
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2016 Vintage 2014: Pours oily black color, clear, with stable foamy light brown head. Aroma: intense dark and roasted malts aroma, with notes of dark chocolate, espresso coffee, vanilla, oak, and intense bourbon smell, etc. Flavor: intense dark malt and roasted malt flavor, with notes of dark chocolate, cocoa nibs, coffee, supported with intense vanilla note, something which takes on molassses and licorice, but in second half steps forward huge, intense, spicy, almost boozy bourbon note. Finish is slightly bourbon spicy, slightly astringent, dry.
Body is full, texture is smooth, carbonation is low. Overall: it would be proper head to head with Lost abbey track 10 or Goose island BCS, but for sure both are pretty more balanced in comparison with this one... Michael27 (1887) - Berlin, GERMANY - JUL 30, 2016

Bardzo fajny aromat, mocna beczka, walinia, likier, nieco alkoholowe, a także karmel. Palności dość mało. Barwa czarna, piana znikoma. W smaku także sporo beczki, ale wchodzi już także większa palność. Piwo zdecydowanie oleiste, sporo ciała, świetnie pije się w temperaturze pokojowej. Czuć alkohol, w likierowej formie. Goryczka średnia. Bardzo dobry balans wszystkich elementów tego złożonego tworu. Bardzo dobre piwo! BRW (2714) - Barcelona, SPAIN - APR 7, 2016
