0.33 l bottle, best before March 2015, courtesy of bierkoning, massive thanks again for this gem! Black with a thin, frothy, stable, light brown head. Intensely sweetish, malty, slightly roasty and a little fruity aroma of lots of vanilla from the bourbon, accompanied by dark chocolate, mocca, dark ripe fruits and a touch of oak. Very sweet, malty, moderately roasty and a little fruity taste of dark chocolate, mocca, massive bourbon/vanilla, licorice, some hazelnut, a bit of oak and hints of dark ripe fruits, followed by a long, rather roasty-bitter, earthy, warming-alcoholic finish. Full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Pretty intense, especially in the finish, nevertheless extremely well-balanced as the bourbon matches the flavours of the base beer perfectly. What a beer, absolutely awesome! ElManana (2079) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - MAR 7, 2017

Bottle thanks to Dan at Richmondo. It pours darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is darkest brown with a small beige head. The nose is rich, oily, bitter - sweet, vanilla, coconut, toffee, fudge, creamy coffee, wood, earth and sweet juicy bourbon. The taste is rich, charred wood, bitter - sweet, spicy bourbon, alcohol warmth, chewy malt, vanilla, burnt toffee, dark fruits and some spice with a warming finish. Full body and moderate carbonation. Aroma is spectacular, but the taste is touch hot. Pretty great though. Leighton (21742) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 20, 2016
