Bottle, bought @ lbutikken, Cph.
Bottle #41
Pours dark brown (perhaps the barrel has stolen some colour, as this is even lighter in colour than the regular). Small, creamy, beige film head. Exceptional aroma. So subtle yet so powerful. Whiskey, port, vanilla, oak, lots of coffee, dark toffee, light liqourice. Vinious and with good dark chocolate on top. Low carbonation, fat and oily mouthfeel. Flavour is really nice. Lots of oak, vanilla, coffee, heavy liqourice, light couch-syrup, vinious. Long, lingering coffee and mild hoppy and vinious finish. Exceptional.

18cl bottle at home. Pours black with small beige head that soon disappears. Rich aroma of coffee, chocolate, vanilla and some caramel. Thick mouthfeel with flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Slight alcohol burn after, but all round smooth and full bodied. Fantastic beer!
