neongolden (1670) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 22, 2017
(330ml bottle from Systembolaget) Pours black with a small medium tan head and lace. Aroma of nougat, cocoa powder, toffee, moderate vanilla and roast, light licorice, notes of dark fruit (plum, fig), bourbon is present but not particularly dominant, sweet overall. On the tongue, much drier overall with just some initial sweetness, notes of dark toffee and molasses, cacao nibs, sweetened black coffee, burnt grain, charred wood, licorice, touches of whiskey and vanilla, spirit heat. Becoming quite dry and bitter on the back end with further notes of tar, coffee grounds, burnt grains and wood, with a little whiskey making itself felt in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with low carbonation. Surprisingly little spirit quality even if there’s a bunch of wood, compared to many current BBA stouts. Solid.

Mooi zwart bier, mokkakleurige schuimkraag die redelijk snel inzakt. Aroma en smaken van hout, bourbon, chocolade, koffie, likeur. Zo zacht en zoo in balans. Beter dan dit ga je echt niet vinden. Magistraal in alle vormen. Pure perfectie !!!!

Bottle shared at Murphy’s. Black with nice deep tan head. Big bourbon nose. Big sweet roasted chocolate malts, some almost burnt notes, bourbon, oak and vanilla, toffee, coffee and a very sweet fruity edge. Big sweet and firm roasty bitterness to go along with that.

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.
