(Draught at Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 28 Feb 2015) Black colour with dense, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, black coffee, vanilla, bourbon and oak wood. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, cacao, liquorice, vanilla, oak wood, bourbon and a warming finish with a generous coffee bitterness and a touch of alcohol. Full body, fairly sweet. Tasty and warming imperial stout with a balanced bourbon character. Excellent beer! coldbrewky (1730) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2014
White label provided by Rob the emperical mastermind. White label. Consumed at Rustende Jager lobby whilst watching the sleet storm. Big ol mamba jamba. Black on black with just a ring of foam on top, tight to the glass. Plums are centraal. There, that’s me getting my language on. Surrounded.on each side is a crap load of dark goodness bolstered by an obscene ration of black patent malt. I like it. I do like it a lot. Bring it on sleet storm....

The taste has some hardcore roasted malts, liquorice, bitter coffee, dark chocolate and some wood. pretty awesome! Vestergaard (2089) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2014
Bottle thanks to Erik. Pours a pitch black with a nice, brown, lasting, frothy head. Aroma has sweet chocolate and bourbon up front, dry wooden ash/smoke, some licorice, slightly hoppy and fairly roasty malts and coffee. Taste has coffee, roasty, malty, coffee tobacco bitterness, bourbon sweetness and dry oaky notes. Overall not a very sweet beer despite the bourbon aging. Very nice, though it’s not that flavorfull.
