Bottle. Pours a pitch black beer with a medium sized tanned bubbly head. Aroma of light bourbon, licorice, slightly roast and toasty. Flavor is very much licorice, little bourbon notes, a bit too old, but still very nice. The sweetness of the licorice is overwhelming and makes it a bit tart. Very lightly carbonated, long sticky sweet aftertaste. Nice stuff. sjogro (3956) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 16, 2016

750ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Bottle #5 of 753. I completely forgot I had this bottle.
Pours black with a long lasting nice beige head. Aroma roasted malt, bourbon, oak, vanilla, leather, prunes, lots of barrel character that gets more smooth as it warms up. Flavour is medium bitter and light sweetness. Full bodied, thick texture, soft carbonation. Finish is bourbon, oak and a hint of grapes and prunes. Maria (10212) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 8, 2015
It’s pitch black with a brown, dense and long lasting head. The aroma is complex with notes of bourbon, vanilla, oak, roasted malt and licorice. The flavor has a light sweetness and a pleasant roasted bitterness and notes of licorice, bourbon, oak, vanilla, chocolate, it’s really nice. I’m happy I saved this in the cellar - it matured well...
