750 ml bottle. Pours a very dark brown color and topped by a very small beige colored head of foam that settles quickly to the body below. The aroma is nice showing notes of dark cocoa, toasted caramel, nuts, toasted malts, dark fruits from the brandy barrels, bourbon soaked oak, and a hint of booze. Definitely very oaky from the different spirit barrels that were used. The flavor follows suit with loads of toasted caramel, nuts, dark fruits, sweet brandy, some dark cocoa, and ample amounts of bourbon laden oak and vanilla. Just a hint of booze to let you know its there, but its very well hidden. Full bodied and very smooth with soft carbonation that leads to a lengthy toasted caramel and a slightly warming bourbon oak finish. Very smooth with a touch of booze and really tasty stuff. This is a really nice barrel aged beer from CCB. RasmusOtt (2976) - Aarhus, DENMARK - FEB 16, 2018

Taste has complex sweet barrel character, lots of toffee, caramel, dark fruits and vanilla. Really awesome!! Klimaet (3172) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - FEB 15, 2018
Bottle shared. Pours very dark brown with a medium brown head. Aromas of dark fruits, chocolatey malts, lots of brandy boozy notes, vanilla, caramel. Taste is sweet, lightly oxidized character, butterscotch, vanilla, bready malts, nuts. Impressive! neongolden (2179) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 7, 2018
(On tap @ MBCC 2017 Blue Session, Copenhagen) Pours basically black with a pale tan head. Notes of fairly dark malt with notes of raw sugar, toffee, dark caramel, rather woody, moderate bourbon, sweet dried fruit/raisin quality that felt a touch brandied, vanilla, light chocolate, nutty toast, rather sweet overall but finishing moderately dry, some alcohol, spirit-soaked wood, light spicebox, vanilla, soft fruit. Medium-full bodied, low carbonation, a bit of boozy heat. Proper ASA, a bit loaded on barrel and booze for a double-barrel piece, didn't necessarily smooth the bourbon out with the brandy as much as I'd desire. Still a good sip. markextrae (4712) - Alingsås, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - JAN 7, 2018
Caramel malts, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, nuts and slight heat from the apple brandy. Lovely barrel aging without getting to hot.

Heavy malty, roasted, dusty and wood. Lots of dried fruits, some nice raisins, woody and vanilla notes. Taste is light heavy sweet - all time long. ABV is moderately hidden, but warms as it heats up a little bit. Cybercat (6507) - Georgia, USA - DEC 16, 2017

Aromat: orzechowy, bourbon, brandy (wyraźnie czuć winność).
Smak: podobnie jak zapach, nieco cierpki, bardzo przyjemny.
Alc. nie czuć. Całkiem ładna piana. heman (1357) - Tychy, POLAND - NOV 6, 2017
Potężny aromat, słodki, słodowy, dużo suszonych owoców (głównie śliwki). Beczka wyraźna, głównie za sprawą brandy. W smaku początkowo słodkie, słodowe jednak wraz z przełykaniem wzrasta lekko taninowy, cierpki posmak. W tle niuanse kwaśne. Dużo suszonych owoców (śliwki, figi, daktyle), posmak drewna, brandy i lekkiej wanilii.
