Bottle from bierkoning, amsterdam. Black color, small brown head. Aroma is light roasty, woody and some coffee. Taste is wonderfully balanced, whiskey notes, roasty, coffee and hops at the end. Huhzubendah (3775) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 21, 2014

The beer is black with a thin beige cap. Aromas of oak, vanilla, whiskey, chocolate. Great flavor. Certainly a European style RIS. Rich and dark. Soft on the palate. Heavy but yet easy drinking. I really enjoyed this. I would happily have this again. yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 13, 2014
Bottle, at Haand Festival -14. A really dark brown beer, topped by a small, beige head. Almost clear, and quite oily pour. The aroma has booze, chocolate, coffee and roasted malts. Not so much aroma of the Wild Turkey, just the alcohol. That goes for the flavor too, it’s roasted tending towards burnt, with chocolate and dark coffee. Full body, lightly warming and soft on the palate. Lasting finish with lots of dark malts and a solid dash of booze. Pretty lovely this one. 140523 rxeight (3335) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Thanks Erik! 12oz (or maybe 330 ml) bottle. Black as night pour with next to no head. Really dark roast. Like darkness but without the sweetness. Bourbon is very minimal, might not have even noticed it. Amazing stuff. tom10101 (6297) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Pitch black with a medium creamy beige head and little lacing. Aroma is of bourbon, vanilla, huge fudge presence, light salty notes and caramel. Taste is moderately sweet (not cloying) with an important bourbon presence, fudge, vanilla, light liquorice, caramel and a moderate to heavy warming finish. Full bodied. Moderate carbonation. Thick. Creamy mouthfeel. Good balance despite the huge bourbon and warming presence. Complex and really tasty. Super fudgy. Really good barrel-aged RIS.

Bottle with thanks to MrH! Pours opaque black with a medium creamy brown head that dissipates slowly with nice lacing. Aroma is rich whiskey, wood, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malts. Flavor follows, medium sweet, light bitter, wonderful blend of whiskey and stout base. Full body, creamy mouthfeel. Pretty hot, which is really the only minus to this outstanding beer.
