Botella. Picth black, big creamy dark brown head, fizzy like, strange. Lots of sweet roasted malt and dark fruit in the aroma with bourbon and chocolate. Good thick mouthfeel. The flavour has lots of roasted malt, on the sweet side for sure, with dark fruits, chocolate, bourbon. Quite carbonated... NikkTwist (3191) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle at Eulogy. Opaque with a huge fizzy big bubble head that lasts a long while. Once through the deep head one finds an extraordinary black hole of bourbon bitterness. Pitch black notes of burnt sugar, burnt wood, burnt chocolate and coffee grounds. Powdery charcoal. The bitterness subdues the sweetness. Warning: When cold it reads way too thin. Must have warm! Not for everyone. A deep black hole to savor or else run away from screaming! Defreni (3153) - Husum, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2012
Flaske: Brunsort øl med et stort skumhoved der oser af overkarbonering. Dette bliver definitivt ved første mundfuld. Klassisk De Molen, når den bliver overkarboneret. Det fungerer bare ikke med ølskum fra en 10% stout i næsen. Det er ikke lækkert. Ellers udmærket øl. mcberko (17178) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 20, 2012
12 oz. bottle at APEX, pours black with a humungous tan head. Aroma of bourbon barrels, vanilla, light chocolate and maybe some woody tartness. Flavour is a bourbon bomb, with lots of barrels, vanilla and booze. Unfortunately, something during the aging creating an intensely high carbonation (especially for an impy. stout), whereas the base beer is very moderately carbonated. This one kills some of the complexity and makes this anything but an easy drinking one. Decent, but too many flaws. wlajwl (6742) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Aroma is malts, fruit and an undercurrent of sweetness. The flavor is fruit/berries, malts, a hint of sourness and a mildly tart finish.

Bottle from Ølbutikken. Pours a pitch black body with the characteristic over-sized, foamy "De Molen-style" beige head retention. Sour-ish grainy malt tones at first, then whisky, leather, licorice and hints of booze and something vaguely reminiscent of salmiac. A bit peculiar, and not at all the kind of Bourbon BA aromas I’ve come to recognize (and love) so easily. The first thing that hits me is what appears to be a massive over-carbonation: the brew is fizzy, which, coupled with the alcohol, creates a harsh cauldron of stingy flavors in my mouth for a while. When it finally dies down, I’m left with licorice and whisky for the most, with some hints of leather and strange salt-sour-like tones in the back. The über-fizzy palate subsides throughout the glass, despite the head which vanished rather quickly. Something has gone a bit wrong here, methinks.

Bottled. Pours black with a huge brown head with fair lacing. Nose of roasted malts, mild coffee and chocolate. Sweet flavor with again coffee, roasted malts and licorice along with dark fruit + bourbon notes. Medium to full bodied, oily texture and flat to soft carbonation. Ends up dry with a little malt bitterness. Again an excelllent brew from Jeppe. DietPepsican (1590) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bottle. Oh god this thing was way off. I was able to pour maybe .5oz of liquid and the rest was foam in a huge glass. I have had this sitting in my fridge for a few days, so temperature wasn’t an issue. Aroma of bourbon, soy, alcohol, and vanilla. Flavor was similar, lots of soy. Carbonation bursts all over my mouth. Drain pour unfortunately. blipp (9146) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours near black with a beige head. Light roasted malty aroma with some bourbon-like sweetness. The flavor has roasted and burnt malts, coffee, and lighter bourbon. Pretty good. KingCecil (2084) - DENMARK - MAY 24, 2012
