(bottle) pours a deep black colour with a brownish tinge and no head. spicy aroma of floral hops, plums, cherries and lingonberries, caramel, chocolate fudge, tobacco and a hint of green apples. flavour is mostly the same, with a slightly diminished fruitiness, lots of caramel, treebark, dark chocolate, a light hint of alcohol and lots of oak in the slightly empty, medium-bitter finish. very thick body with almost no carbonation. Enjoyit (3809) - Vadum, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Black of color with a beige head. An aroma of leather, liqurice, roasted malt, sweets, prunes and weak alcohol. A flavor of liqurice, prunes, sweets, roasted malt and an oily texture in the begining. pentaz (1264) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 24, 2013
Bottle. Pours black with a partly lasting and medium lacing small creamy tan head. Aroma is roasted malts, brown sugar, licorice, peat, whisky, vanilla, dark fudge, herbs, butter, soy, booze and oak. Taste is heavy sweet, heavy bitter, a little salty. Body is full, texture is thick/creamy, carbonation is soft. Finishes sweet and with much heat and gets astringent in the far finish. Quite pleasant this one. I’ll have to look for the other B.A. versions. Idiosynkrasie (7516) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 17, 2013
330ml bottle. Pitch black colour with no head, just a few bubbles stick at the bezel. Dark malty aroma with typical whisky notes in the background: vanilla, leather, shoe polish. Taste is moderately sweet dark malty, some treacle, notes of vanilla, leather, some warming alcohol in the finish; flat carbonation. Nicely balanced BA notes, not overdone, sadly slightly insipid.
Martinus (4601) - Baarle-Nassau, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2013

Bottled. Pours opaque black with a medium sized, beige and short lasting, beige head, that leaves a good lacing. Aroma of slightly roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla and whiskey notes. Sweet flavor that ends up with some alcohol. Medium to full bodied, creamy texture and flat to soft CO2. A deliceus and smooth impy stout. .★★★★ banii (240) - Sola, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2013

Pourd dark black with a small, frothy tan head. Aroma of roast dark chocolate malt. Medium body, quite creamy sweet, low carbonation, flavour is a bit vinous with some roast malt. Dry but sweet aftertaste. Nice change from the usual Emelisse barrel aged versions. kjorup (24) - DENMARK - JAN 26, 2013

Whiskey notes shine through in aroma along with coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, hops and peat.
Soft almost flat carbonation, medium bodied, oily, finishes with alcohol warmth.
Flavor is sweet, salt licorice, coffee, vanilla, whiskey barrel. All nicely balanced. Aftertaste is long lasting, sweet and slightly bitter.
