Taste has smooth bourbon vanilla, red fruit, roasted malt, chocolate, cherry, caramel, subtle licorice and coffee beans. Long flavorful bourbony finish, soft mouthfeel. This is absolutely fantastic.

Shared 330 ml bottle at local tasting. Black colour, minimal tan head. Strong aroma of coffee and molasses, also vanilla and bourbon whiskey. Coffee and bourbon in the flavour too, but not as sweet as I expected. Some sourish berry notes, and the mouthfeel is not quite as rich and thick as expected from a 12.6% IS. Still a good beer. gunnar (9331) - Sandnes, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
Shared bottle at local tasting. Pours very dark ruby with a tiny head. Aroma is deep malty, with berries and oak. Taste is complex, some weak sour malts with a distinct woody dry finish. Holmen1 (6138) - Stavanger, NORWAY - FEB 7, 2015
