Bottle thanks to William. Pours a very dark brown with small beige head. The aroma is roast, wood, smoke, vanilla, bourbon. Thick, chewy, dark chocolate, roasted malt, bourbon, vanilla, enjoyed this. vyvvy (6399) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Pours dark brown with a small head. The aroma has roast, booze and light coffee. It has a medium full body with light carbonation. The taste has soy sauce, licorice, roast and harsh bitterness (malt, hops, barrel??). Decent. Thanks gregwilsonstl for sharing! wchesser (2071) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2017
Nose has some slightly old coffee elements, not surprising given age, but not present in others. Harsh bitter line to taste as well, not as rounded and rich as some of the others. Splitting hairs here, but having taste 3 of 5, this is least favorite so far. gregwilsonstl (2466) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 24, 2017
Dark black. No head. Smells of bourbon. Kinda harsh. Coffee is hidden behind all the oak barrel. Id like to try a non BA version of this. Vanilla. BlazerT (1089) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Dużo kawy, wyczuwalna od początku, gładkie, słodkie, beczka w porównaniu do Ethiopian na drugim planie, ale wciąż bardzo wyczuwalna. Ponadto mega likierowe, bombonierka, praliny. Generalnie znowu Cycle rozwala system - gładkie, alko schowane, likier kawowy, sporo kawy, zrównoważone, lekki kwasek od kawy pod koniec. Wolę Ethiopian ze względu na więcej beczki, bourbonu i mniej kawy, ale powiedzmy, że na równi.

Lots of coffee, lots of sweetness, quite nicely balanced but alcohol could be more hidden or covered by body which in my opinion is too low. The beer is good but I was expecting something definitely better markextrae (4410) - Alingsĺs, SWEDEN, SWEDEN - APR 15, 2017
