Bottle at El Catador Tasting, Odense. It pours opaque black with a reddish brown creamy head. Slick and chewy. Loads of roasted malts in this. Bourbon, cocoa, chili, vanilla and light coffee. Huge complexity here. The flavor is super roasted. Sweet cocoa and vanilla. Light chili and only a whiff of cinnamon. Really a top notch brew here. MrOrla (3784) - Odense C, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2018

Single BA edition is also stellar. Lot's of vanilla, oak, spice and some heat. Amazing brew. As I said in the DBH review, the base beer is already stellar and barrel aging it really makes it extra special. BuckeyeBoy (9342) - Boise, Idaho, USA - FEB 11, 2018
750ml bottle pours out black topped with a brown head. Nose is nice bourbon barrel notes vanilla big roast coffee chocolate. Tatse is more of the nice big roast coffee rich milk chocolate sweetness and vanilla bourbon barrel. Ktwse (5875) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2018
Pours black as night with a fairly tall deep tan head that drops quickly. Aroma of rich bourbon up front but immediately balanced by ancho chilli, cocoa, vanilla, hot damn if this isn’t one of the best aromas I’ve ever experienced! Taste is rich bourbon fiery, roasty, chocolate, sticky sweet, honestly a bit much. The chilli finish helps but still too sweet. Rich and creamy body with soft carbonation. bytemesis (9727) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 30, 2017
Bottle thanks to El Cat and Homer! Pours opaque black, small dark brown creamy head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is wonderful, bourbon, cocoa, hints of vanilla, dark chocolate, cinnamon, oak. Flavor is quite sweet, light bitter, a bit of pepper spice remains, other spices mingle with the bourbon and give a very deserty, yet drinkable, feel. Touch of marshmallow. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. One of the best. I am kicking my own ass that I was not on this one in the second chance sale earlier this month. Dumas. Hoprider (809) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2017
Pours a jet black oily cookie with an espresso crema coloured foam. Aroma is busting whiffs of charred malts, big cinnamon, green chilli, light soy, molasses and light hints of vanilla. The taste is intensely roasted and the taste is initially big on soy, ashy bitter roast and cinnamon with not much bourbon coming through. This needs 15+ minutes to unfold the sweeter notes. After a good amount of time, you actually do get some vanilla, light chocolate and sweet cinnamon working well together. Very different beer after 20 minutes and it did become enjoyable but it just took too long and even then the barrel didn’t come through much. I was really crossing my fingers but as with many other CCB beers of recent times, this was just overly roasted, soyish, charred and ashy.
