One of my top 5 best beers I ever had...so good that I am aging 2 of them for next 2 years. Vanilla, Chocolate, and Bourbon. Great thick flavor. Pour down in Tulip glass and pretty much it was total black.
Sweetest beer I ever had! kimjongill (207) - - JAN 23, 2013
From 2012 bottle, fresh. Appearance is not among my favorite stouts. Pours deep black with a thick, dark tan head. Aroma is top notch. Lots of vanilla from the bourbon and chocolate from the malt. Amazing how the bourbon notes come off as separate and not just as a singular "bourbon". Taste and mouthfeel are both spectacular. Overall, I have to knock off an additional point for value, as I feel like this beer is a bit overpriced in general. I would still put it in my top 5 stouts, though. 77ships (11750) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 4, 2015
Thx! to Mathieu87 & PriorL. 2010 Vintage. 650 ml. bottle sampled @ “Nog-een-half-jaar-tot-de-volgende-EBT”. Way, way better than the 3 other varieties I tried before this one. Blackish, mocha bubbles. Nose is thick chocolate, mocha, caramel, warming bourbon. Taste is thick chocolate, very creamy, vanilla bourbon, very thick & integrated. Coffee, very sweet, lots of milk chocolate. Rich body. Really surprised by this one.
