Bottle from Bodegraven. Pours a small dark brown, oily, head that dissipates halfway. Minor carbonation, might improve with ageing.
Heavy alcohol and musky barrel aromas. Syrop or port style mouthfeel. Complex mix of dark choc, dark fruits, and a sweet caramel bourbon. Would age well, and score better in 5 years time.

BOTTLE 33 CL. Inky black. Thick inky roast, some dark fruit and loads of roast, soy sauce. The taste is beyond threshold of perception - super intense, inky roast, residual sweetness is balanced by huge roasty bitterness. Hardly any barrel. Good, turned to eleven.

Pours pitch black with tan head. Aroma is deep roasted malt, coffee ground, dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, oak, toasted coconut, dark fruits, dark chocolate covered cherries. Flavour is pure dark chocolate, coffee beans, bourbon forward, dark fruits, an awesome smoked finish which is perfect, not too subtle nor too strong. Full body, velvety creamy mouthfeel, really soft carbonation. Loved it!

Weicher, süß rauchiger Malzantrunk. Würzig, die Süße steigt noch an, leicht alkoholisch. Vollmundig, überdeutliche Noten von Bourbon. Zusammen mit der Süße unsüffig, brotig. Nett. 10/10/11/11/11/11 ZodiacM (1140) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 3, 2016
