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.

Black with a thin head. NIce sweet milk chocolate and bourbon aroma and taste with a smooth palate. Quite Good.

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.

Black pour with a khaki head. Nose is wood, bourbon, vanilla, and alcohol. Chewy palate, light alcohol, smoke, wood, faint vanilla, great finish.

MarcoDL (5309) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 26, 2015
Bottle @ ZEBF 2015. Aroma of coffee, booze and roast. Taste has coffee, whiskey, sweet boozy fruit and some roasted cacao. Nice, but expected even more.

bottleshare thanks to Beechner224. Nose is rich chocolate and booze. Slight vanilla. Some roast. Lots of cocoa powder in the flavor. A little harsh. But ok.

Near headless above an opaque body. Nose of wicked barrel sweetness. Flavour is amazing - boozy, black licorice, burnt sugar, tobacco leaf. Delicious!

4.3
jbruner (5124) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Pours an opaque black from the bomber with thin ring of tan brown head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big bourbon barrel notes, but the age has made it mild. Taste is big on chocolate, vanilla, and oak, smooth as all hell. Wow, amazing.
