Thanks to a trade Fantastic bottle, brownie doughy flavors, vanilla, love it this is great. Skyview (6021) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Sampled this one several times. Most of them were shared by Bacterial. Pours and opaque and syrupy near black colored brew with a thin tan head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind a film top and beige ring. Aroma of Baker’s chocolate, bourbon, a hint of blackstrap molasses, soy and sweet licorice. Taste is full bodied, lots of bourbon and dark chocolate flavors. Finish is thick and chewy with a strong alcohol presence with bourbon and dark chocolate. Yum. BoBoChamp (5755) - Gent, BELGIUM - DEC 2, 2011

UPDATED: DEC 14, 2013 Bottle at Stone Oakquinox 2012. Black pour, thin dark tan head. Chocolate, bourbon, molasses, raisin, sugary, and some vanilla. Not as smooth and less vanilla than the 18 year. SlovakSniper (5561) - Candiac, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 23, 2014
Vintage 2013. Belle coiffe sur cette robe presque noire. Dentelle pour agrémenter le regard. Beau nez de café, de mélasse, de chocolat, de noisettes et de bourbon élégamment discret. Saveurs riches de mélasse, de réglisse, de chocolat, de café caramélisé, de bois et de malts rôtis. Belle complexité. Bouche sensuelle avec sa texture soyeuse et ses bulles tranquilles. Arrière-goût de café et de malts noirs et amers. Un monstre si facile à boire. Savoureux stout impérial.

Bottle shared at some stables in Belgium. Black with light brown head that leaves lots of lacing. Dried apricot, cocoa, strawberry, vanilla, booze, light metallic touches, bubblegum, old coffee. Over medium sweet with a lingering metallic bitter finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation and lingering dry feel. Quite nice except for the finish. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - FEB 11, 2010
Black with a thin head. NIce sweet milk chocolate and bourbon aroma and taste with a smooth palate. Quite Good. markwise (5441) - North of Tampa, Florida, USA - MAR 29, 2012
Bomber graciously shared by BigSound. Cheers, Henri! Pours a wonderful stout brown with a tan head. Nose is bourbon, sweet molasses, brown sugar, wood, vanilla, rum-soaked raisins, and some milk chocolate. Flavor is similar with very sweet, very chocolate and molasses flavors throughout. This one is balanced more toward the barrel, but still really nice as the stout dances back with notes of chocolate and cafe con leche. Very enjoyable.
