SlovakSniper (5275) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
Vintage 2014. Belle robe et col mousseux brun de belle figure. Au nez, riches notes de bourbon avec de la noix de coco et du chocolat et du caramel et du chne et de la vanille et des fruits. Large reprsentation olfactive. Le got est tout aussi gnreux, trs malt mais jamais trop sucr avec un alcool qui se manifeste comme un fin renard. Une bouche soyeuse, facile comme un dessert quon savoure lentement. La finale se fait sur des notes de malts rtis et de mlasse. Superbement facile boire.

jinroh (1316) - ESTONIA - MAR 27, 2016
Dark brown, beige foam. Aroma is sweet, velvety, soft roast and vinous dark chocolate. Dark fruits and raisins in steroids. Taste is mind-blowing and full of mixed chocolate, bitter cocoa, barrel booze, bit of oak, spices, dark fruits, salty bacon, liquorice, coffee and so on, so on. Crazy good.

jc1762 (964) - Washington DC, USA - MAR 6, 2016
Poured into a wine glass showing pitch black with sparse latte foam. The nose shows a lot of smoke, oak barrel, notes of latte, and sweet hints of molasses. The palate is lightly carbonated and full bodied. The first impression shows a lot of buttery popcorn flavor with the same silky buttery mouth feel. Upon the second swig and warming up, a more vanilla forward flavor appears finished with smoked bourbon on the end.
