thedm (5976) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 14, 2016
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated opaque dark black brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The aroma was very nice with dark malt and bourbon notes. The vinous thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish with a strong bourbon roasted malt aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of strong roasted malt, mild hops, a non-overpowering bourbon, brown and dark malts. A wonderful best in class brew.

bartlebier (3710) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 12, 2016
33cl freshly bottled 09/2016, bb 09/41 from De Molen, shared. - Freshly siphoned Bourbon vanilla and fine marzipan smoothes out an already suave bitter chocolate souffl. Ties cocoa, bourbon and a still fresh hop bitterness together in a clean bitter (chocolate and almond) finish. Basic in its richness, not to be taken for granted considering what can go (fusel-)wrong in barrel-aging...Alas this did not even make it 2months into its 25+yr lifespan.

McNeillR (2273) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 6, 2016
Rich dark ruby brown, thin head and weak sticky lacing. Nose is firmly iodine and blackberry with a slim coconut milk swoop. Initial taste is a skinny roast and nuzzled bitterness, no major roast but sticky smokiness. Carbonation is soft enough and mouthfeel very sticky and bullish. Finishes sticky, richer dark choc and liquorice noise.
