Svartvit (324) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 28, 2017
Bottle shared. Pours black with a small beige head. Boozy on the nose, bourbon, molasses, burnt sugar, coffee, licourice. A bit boozy but it is blended in with the flavor quite well. Complex one, guess this would have been a trainwreck fresh.

Bottle @ Sort-Sndag. Pours pitch black with a brown head. Aroma of heavy roast, barrel, light whisky, citrus peel, light vanilla notes, light soy, light dried fruits, molasses, light orange peel. Taste is heavy sweet, with some citrus peel again, loads of barrel, dark choco. Heavy but sippleable.

jbruner (4410) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Pours an opaque black from the bomber with thin ring of tan brown head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of big boozy barrel notes, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, hint of roast. Taste follows, booze is well hidden, fairly thin mouth, which is disappointing. Another good variant, just seemed small.

2014 Bottle, shared at Cafe Sara february 17th 2016. Black body with a small brown head. Aroma of dark fruits and chocolate. Taste of rye, cocoa, roasted malt. Pleasant complexity yet balanced, A dense nutty finish together with a strong roastiness ends it off. Pretty good! Worth the hype? Not sure. Would I have it again? Oh yes!
