Great smooth and dark chocolate background. The whisky is smooth but soft, not much alcohol there. The stout is deep and roasty, but the whisky is not really here. The beer is - as usual - round and smooth with a nice chocolate aroma. But there I miss the whisky counterpart. Koelschtrinker (20395) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 13, 2016

Bottle to pint glass (BR/3 2012)
One of my birthday beers. It’s been sitting in the cellar for 2.5 years. Caramel, rye, soy, molasses, treacle, sour blackcurrant, vanilla, and honey. Black with a thin, creamy, light tan head. Taste is caramel, toasted malt, soy, dark chocolate, and late bourbon sweetness and some bitterness. Wow...this was worth the wait, I think. I imagine this was too hot a couple years ago, but it’s now well balanced. rxeight (3080) - Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2015
2012 gold wax. The roasty malt is dominant in this one with a touch of sweet bad booze. The bourbon and barrel really faded out on this one. Reminds me of how bourbon county starts getting after like 6 years, but accomplished that in half the time. Not really digging this one for the style, and especially bad or the price.
