75 cl. bottle sampled @ GBF 2013. Courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Thx! Yellow wax. Apparently limited to 240 bottles. Min. 12 months old. Pours a very dark brown going to black with a beige head. Smell is very sweet booze, light bourbon, sticky brown sugar, caramel, sticky, thick chocolate, lots of wood vanilla, thick cocoa, almost touch of dark fruits,… Taste is thick brown sugar, creamy milk chocolate, reminds me a bit of a milk stout, high quality brandy-like alcohol, bourbon, lots of wood vanilla, creamy chocolate, sweet, sweet coffee,… Quite creamy, touch less carb. Very easy to drink which sadly made me go very quickly through my portion. Mmm so yummy.

In bottle, thanks Craig! Pours a black colour with a lacy tan head. A fantastic aroma of coconut, pineapple, liquorice, roasty malt, dark chocolate and a little lactose. Similar flavours with just a touch of lemon and a little mustiness also. The balance between roasty malt and sour mustiness is incredible. Lingering coconut and pineapple again. Mild carbonation with light CO2 prickle and an oily mouth-feel. Superb!

9/24/11. On tap at BA Hunahpu. Very dark brown pour with almost no tan head. Interesting aroma - sweet, dark fruits with vanilla and caramel, like a barleywine, but paired with some dark roast as well. Sweet flavor with dark fruits, brown sugar, vanilla, a touch of tartness, and lingering dry roast. Very nice!

750ml courtesy of thecheeseman. Bottle 207/240. The oatmeal and chocolate on the nose was very good. Black body good head wand some decent lace. The thick oatmeal presence along with the coco stood out the most with some boose in the mix. With the alcohol presence still easy on the palate. Good brew thanks was worth the wait.

On tap at Hunahpu day. Pours thick and black, no head. Aroma of booze, sweet vanilla, oak, toffee, chocolate. Taste follows, really sweet but this is great as a small serving. One of the most complex beers ive ever had!

Bottle courtesy of one of the most generous people I know, thanks buddy! This was shared in the company of many of the Belgium rateebeerians who I had the pleasure of seeing again at the 4de Gents Bierfestival and some meeting for the first time. What a terrific experience, cheers everyone!! The 75cl yellow waxed bottle pours with a dark mahogany body that supports a light mocha colored head. The aroma offers up boozy bourbon, chocolate, toffee, cherries and some sweet and vague barrel notes. The taste is smooth and rich and demands small enjoyable sips where there’s a mix of dark roasted malts, dark roasted chocolate malts, smooth sweet cherry notes and then slivers of faint red grape tartness. In between these notes I get more chocolate bar and toffee candy notes that really ramp this up into rarified richness and balance where a mild smooth bourbon barrel booziness is noticed off in the background. Dandy stuff, I can sip on this stuff for hours.
