Bottle from Beer Gonzo drunk at home. Very deep ruby brown with a thick tan head. Aroma has deep roasted malty, toffee chocolate and dried fruit with a bourbon kick. Taste long sweetish fudge slight fruit. Full rich and velvety body.

Dark malts, dark berries and bourbon in the fragrance. The flavor of licorice, dark coffee, dark chocolate, soy sauce, dark malt and Bouron. Exquisite bitterness that fills the mouth forever. Wonderful and enjoyable beer. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

33 cl bottle @ olio. Bottled 05.09.2016
Aroma has cocoa and dark chocolate. Flavour has alcohol, bourbon, wood, vanilla, licorice and cocoa. Also some sweet malt. Strong on bourbon, strong on alcohol. Could work as a slow sipper.

tiong (7201) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2017
330ml botle from The Bottle Shop, London. Pours pitch black with a bubbly brown head. Aroma of stingy woody notes, bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasty malts, coffee and cocoa. Taste is smooth, stingy and roasty with some oak, bourbon, wood, vanilla and coffee. Finish is stingy, roasty and slightly bourbony with some oak, wood, vanilla, toffee, coffee, chocolate and cocoa. Heavy and stingy bourbon BA IS.

Hopmaestro (1631) - Örebro, SWEDEN - MAY 20, 2017
Aroma is big and rich from roasted malts and hard roasted, but sweet coffee. Lots of bourbon notes. Taste is lean and smooth but contains kicks of almost salty licorice and raw bitter chocolates. The alcohol kicks in at the end, and it’s actually bordering a little too much, but keeps itself at a reasonable level. The bourbon notes comes crawling even more at the end.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours darkest brown with a thick tan head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, licorice, bourbon and raisin. Malt and rich chocolate flavor with bourbon and raisin accents before a roasty finish.

MarcoDL (4845) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2017
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2017 Bottle. Black oily pour. Aroma has rich bourbon vanilla, chocolate, red fruit, coffee and licorice. Flavor of licorice, vanilla, bourbon booze, red fruit, coffee, pure chocolate and a bitter finish in which the licorice gets stronger. It?s a good beer, but the licorice is too dominant for my liking. I still miss the old recipe base beer. Edit: after a while, more flavor is released, it gets more fruity and vanilla sweet, nice, I’ll up the score a little.

Context is everything. I had been working all weekend with a bad dose of man flu, followed by a truly crappy Monday, demanding some beery recompense. This, THIS is the antidote to life’s annoyances. Pours oily iridescent black, peripheral coffee crema head. Big roasted and dark fruit aroma, whisky tang in the back. Lovely full mouthfeel, not sickly. Big boozy tingle, heat from the whisky cask ageing. Dry, woody, spicy, boozy. Just plain gorgeous. You do know we love you Buxton, don’t you?
