pacond (190) - Muncie, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2012 Lots of malted chocolate syrup flavors but not too sweet and well balanced. Really enjoyable from the small sample size I had.

Saeglopur (2326) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - NOV 4, 2017
Score: 8 / 4 / 8 / 4 / 17

650 ml bottle, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Black body, with a medium, creamy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of rum barrel, coffee, vanilla, coconut, liquorice, dark chocolate, some booze.
Tastes similar, with a bit more booze.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes medium dry, medium roasty, medium sweet, warm, wooden, with rum, cocoa powder, tobacco, coffee, some dark chocolate, some dark fruits.

Tasty. The rum barrel is quite dominant, but still really diverse and complex. Full bodied and thick, with some booze, but not too much. Great, over the top, barrel aged Imperial Stout.

neongolden (1824) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 28, 2017
(On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen, May 9/17) Black pour with a small pale tan head and no lace. Aroma is fairly sweet caramilk bar with whiskey, vanilla, some dark fruit, milk chocolate, moderate roast, praline. Flavour is semi sweet and not shy on the spirit character, again with chocolate and caramel at the core, moderate roast, heavily whiskey soaked oak, some dried dark fruit like dates, vanilla, pretty spirit loaded but not too cloying. Woody notes and moderate roast plus spirit tones drying the back end. Medium full body with soft carb. Really nice, the barrel character stays in balance despite being fairly assertive, and stays away from bourbon barrel cliches.

3.7
nimbleprop (8750) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Sampled at Ocelot’s 2nd anniversary party. Very surprised and happy to see this as a guest tap. Pours a oily, translucent black with some soapy, tan head. Nose is huge with molasses and toasted marshmellow, booze, raisins. Flavor is boozy, sweeter, licorice, molasses, big toasted marshmellow, chocolate. Finishes a touch hot, but drinkable too.

4.6
ciocanelu (2942) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - MAY 22, 2017
On tap. Black color with brown head. Aroma has fleshy plums, floral notes like violets and also green coffee beans. Taste is quite balanced with bourbon, toffee, green peppers and caramel on the finish. Medium to full bodied with medium carbonation.

4.2
Biroholik (1545) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - MAY 17, 2017
Tap @ Mikkeller Beer Celebration 2017
Cycle Rare DOS BA Palm Ridge Whiskey Barrel
Czarny kolor z całkiem niezłą beżową pianą. Fajnie rysuje krążki na szkle. Aromat nie jest miazgą, nie rzuca na kolana, nie jest tak intesywny jak w poprzednich piwach Cycle. Jest trochę ciemnych słodów, chleba żytniego, kawy, czekolady, pralinek. W smaku słodka czekolada, kawa z mlekiem, wanilia, dużo batoników Bounty, karmel, melasa, drewno, dębina. Tekstura oleista, gęsta jak cholera. Świetne piwo, ale nie wybitne.
