mrjez (716) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUN 25, 2017
Tap at Imazato, rare one-off keg, 2015 in origin perhaps? Black pour with dark tan head. Sweet bourbon aroma, chocolate, coconut, a little barrel character. Flavour similar to nose, sweet notes of bourbon and choc, vanilla/coconut flourishes in sips every so often. Bit of fizz up front, slightly harsh on the backend, throat warmth. Decent.

KyotoLefty (10809) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 25, 2017
Tap at Imazato. Pitch black with a low head. Nose is not so impressive, vanilla, chocolate, soy, bourbon. Rich chocolate and vanilla flavor, booze and very sweet, like chocolate marshmallows, berry, apples. Airy body like a marshmallow too. Good but too single-mindedly sweet. Probably would be much better in a year or 2.

Hoprider (782) - DENMARK - JUN 24, 2017
Black pour, off white head. Roasty aroma is mellowed out by the bourbon, bringing vanilla and sweetness. The taste has chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and a nice sweet bourbon alcohol aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with soft carbonation.

Yorker (2119) - Holstebro, DENMARK - MAY 11, 2017
65 cl bottle @ home (2014 vintage). Pours black with a tan head that leaves some lacing. Aroma and flavour are bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, liquorice, and tobacco - with a slightly bitter finish.

3.7
GIJOE (1258) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JAN 3, 2017
Pours a dark brown with a frothy, beige foam. Nose is sweet roasted grains with hints of dark chocolate, and dried fruits. Taste is on the sweet side with a nice bitter nip. Complex flavor profile: bitter cocoa, booze, oak, spice, anise, coffee. Very nice brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
