What a great beer. Not as strong as I thought for an 11.2% beer. Excellent bourbon back note but the vanilla really shows and makes this a smooth sipping beer.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2017 Tasted on tap on Bierfest Mannheim, Black beer with light brown head, smell is very strong coffee, dark chocolate, taste also, very good, perfect for breakfast 😄 crimson75 (297) - Gdańsk, POLAND - JUL 25, 2017
Aromat: Kawa i to taka solidnie wypalona, gorzka czekolada, wyrazne drewno, nieco mniej wyrazna wanilia, bardzo subtelny alkohol
Pierwsze wrazenie ze smaku to to ze piwo jest szalenie geste i równie gladkie, naprawde, cialo ociera sie o doskonalosc. Poza tym jest to RIS z gatunku zdecydowanie wytrawnych, sporo kawy, wyrazna palonoc, nawet czekolada tylko troche wybiega w kierunku slodkosci. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale jako taka przyjemna, dostojna nuta
Dla mnie petarda, wkurzylem sie ze przy kolejnej wizycie w Pulapce juz tego piwa nie bylo coil (52) - - JUL 25, 2017
355ml bottle from beergonzo.co.uk. Black with large mocha head. Big dark chocolate, big espresso, pure coffee beans, pure cocoa beans, big boozy warming bourbon whisky with enjoyable bite in the aftertaste, oak barrel notes, big roasted malts, burnt toast, mocha, liquorice, molasses, maybe some red wine notes. Thick almost sludgy mouthfeel, medium carbonation, dry finish. Great stuff. Joakgust (1456) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle. Opaque dark brown beer with a large beige head. Aroma is malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, coffee, vanilla and bourbon. Flavor is malty with notes of caramel, chocolate, coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla and smokey bourbon. Well balanced. jjsint (3114) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2017
Bottle from the Ale Taster, St Neots. Dark brown with an ominous tan head and spotty lacing. Taste is an almost perfect marriage of chocolate fudge and strong, almost harsh whiskey. Smoky, spicy and engaging. Taste starts sweet but turns more bitter quite quickly. It’s smooth but lacking the balance I was hoping for. It comes right in the ambrosial finish however, and there’s notes of yeast extract, carob, and savoury whisky sauce. Leaving aside the hype, this is an incredible treat.

Opens with a dull coffee roast and bourbon booziness taking over the nose. Taste is coffee on arrival with tiny bits of cacao in the middle. Bourbon on finish with a lot of heat lingering. Medium mouthfeel. Awesome chocolate-covered coffee beans as its temperature warms up but then quickly turns into a hot, astringent booze-fest. Way too woody when drunk fresh. Needs 8-12 months! tricksta_p (4663) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 23, 2017
Bottle from Hopt. At 11.9% abv. Aroma is roasted malt, coffee, Bourbon, oak, some booze, liquorice, chocolate, touch of vanilla with a hint of smoke and ash. Flavour is medium sweet and fairly bitter with some alcohol hotness. Body is full. Quite nice, must have been a true smasher ten years ago, a rightful classic. Personally, I prefer the Founders Imperial and Breakfast Stouts, but this one is very tasty as well. commonshawn (1259) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 Tap at bulldog ne. Cola black with tan creamy head. Sweet boozy nose. Sweet, rich, chocolate, boozy peat. Very complex. Some spiciness. Sweet lots of layers. Full creamy body. Big and well thought out. rommelreno (73) - - JUL 22, 2017
