Bottle @ benzai. Pitch black colour with a lovely, amazing brownish head. Instant 5 for the appearance. Smells roasty, malts, chocolate, wood, bourbon. Lovely. Tastes bourbon, wood, lots of chocolate, roasty, almonds. Holy shitballs. Amazing. Reminds me of a cornetto icecream. Love it. Full body, silky, lovely carbo.

330ml bottle, thanks to Benzai! Pours deep black with menacing tan head. Lovely sweet bourbon aroma. Lovely sweet bourbon influence in the taste. The kind of beer you don’t write notes about.. you just lie back and absorb it’s wonderful warmth.

UPDATED: APR 11, 2017 Das Gänsehautbier... ;)......und der Barkeeper liebt es!!!!! Hammer!!! Rauchaaltaste und viel räudiges Gesamtbild formen ein Bier, welches man nur Beer Geeks oder Seebären ans Herz legen kann. Schwer EXTREM. Torf!!!!! Wo ist bitte die Bourbonvanille??? Vom Hahn im ARENDSNEST Amsterdam. 0,15/$ Euro. 9/5/9/4/17. Heute gab’s ne Verschnappulierung aus der 0,33l Flasche. 5,25€. De Molen Home Party 🎆...Viel verbourbter geht’s kaum. Glaube ich hatte die normale Version vom Fass😂. Klar rauchts hier auch aus allen Ecken, aber der Whiskey ist ein Diktator der sanften Sorte. Harte Fassflavours formen den Torfrocker zur Big Beer Sensation 🙃. Klaro bleibt kein Kuhstalljungenauge trocken, hier regiert immer noch das Scotchmalz...natürlich geräuchert 😎.Also, eine deutlich heißere IS Smokey Abfahrt als vom Fass. Lang, schwarz und sour. Mmmmhhh..with a lot of Earthhoppyness!! Ausdauernd und klebend...

33cl bottle. Bottled Jan30th 2013. Pitch black, brown head. Sweet bourbon aroma, vanilla, peat, licorice, all coming together nicely. Amazing aroma, I could sniff this all night. Flavor has vanilla, sweetness, licorice, and peaty notes. Peat quite strong towards finish. Incredibly smooth. Finish lasts forever with vanilla and roasted malty, coffee notes. Absolutely amazing.

Tomada en Cerveceria Kraken. Oviedo. Puro petroleo. Imperial Stout que no defrauda desde el primer trago. Sabores dulces del bourbon sumados al tostado, cafe, madera. Potencia en estado puro. Apenas tiene espuma. Ni falta que le hace. Para disfrutar 1 y 1000veces

Bottle. shared with Simon of Round Tower Brewery to educate him on the wonders of barrel-aging!!! Thanks to my lovely Beer Fairy for this one! Opaque black with baige lacing. Aroma is huge. Oak, chocolate, Kentucky Bourbon, probably Wild Turkey, leather. Taste is blackcurrants, chocolate, raw cocoa, oak, wood, leather, Kentucky Bourbon and alcohol. Brilliant. Epic. Really drinkable too!

thedm (6186) - 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.

MelvinKalksma (1536) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2016

Aroma:
Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, dark fruit, chocolate, roasted malts, coffee, smoke and peat.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with a slight/medium brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, dark fruit and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and medium dry with roasted malts, coffee, smoke and peat.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Thanks to wood from the barrel and the smoke already present in the beer itself, peat is definitely noticeable. Great beer with loads of foavour.
