Flaska (2013) p Pipes of Scotland, Uppsala. Svart l, nstan utan skum. Underbar doft av frmst Bourbon och vanilj. Vldigt len munknsla med smak av Bourbon, vanilj, lite vrmande alkohol, beska och svagt rostade toner. Mycket god!

Bulk_Carrier (4206) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Back of the bottle reads 07/01/14. This was poured into a mini snifter. The appearance poured like jet fuel and had a dark brown color close to black color with a slim concave little head. Trickling light lacing roams around the glass. The smell started off with a sharp bourbon sweet/light hot weaving some light cocoa and coffee. The taste was sweet through the bourbon and then the cocoa and coffee combine nicely. A sharp yet sticky bourbon to coffee aftertaste leads into a sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a good sipping quality about it. The carbonation was pretty mild but that didnt bother me as I look at the date. Smooth roasty coffee tones roll over my tongue. Overall, I say this was a superb bourbon barrel RIS that I would love to have again.

DwarfeD (3043) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - MAY 5, 2015
33cl bottle at home; as H&V Bourbon Barrel Aged. Pitch black with almost no head. Full body with low carbonation. Quite sweet with subtle bitter tones. Roasted malts, bourbon, alcohol, black coffee, ripe dark fruits and brown sugar. A tasty BA brew.

Vells (1674) - Rga, Latvija, LATVIA - MAY 4, 2015
Thanks to Zenkis! 2+ yrs cellaring. Starts with impressive standard IMP qualities - intense dark roasted malts, quite noticeable bit harsh (in a good way) wild turkey BA, coffee, oak, licorice. Quite intense sweetness with moderate bitterness, bit sourish hints. Too much yeast sediments in bottle bit lowers this one. Otherwise - awesome sippable brew.

GlasgowTAD (1458) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 17, 2015
Received this bottle in a trade with BenH, muchos gracis! Pours an incontestable black with a moderate mocha head which soon recedes to a bubbly layer. Sweet molasses, vanilla, creme brulee, dark chocolate and hints of roastiness in the aroma. Taste is somewhat hot at first but rather pleasant; vanilla, milk chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee and slight burnt sugar. Full bodied with a sticky mouthfeel.

Cam_Dynamite (119) - AUSTRALIA - APR 7, 2015
Pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is loaded with bourbon booze, herb/fruit. Taste was super bourbon and vegemite, quite a barrage of flavours. Complex beer. Quality, but just didnt seem to balance the array of flavours
