22oz bottle pours out dark brown almost black topped with a tan ring of a head. Nose is huge sweet malts toffee caramel vanilla bourbon barrel notes wow. Taste is more of the big sweet malts marshmallow vanilla bourbon barrel wow. This bad boy has aged amazing. neongolden (1784) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 7, 2017
(On tap @ CBC 2016 Yellow Session, Copenhagen) Pours nearly black with a fine cream coloured head. Nose has lots of bourbon, rich toffee, oak, vanilla extract, brewed coffee, a lot of malt complexity. On the tongue, very sweet but with a fair amount of roast to it as well, conveying the substantial stout component of the blend. There’s a reasonable amount of bitterness, toasted and burnt grain, caramel, yet more layers of vanilla and oak. In the finish, some booze, toasted bordering on burnt, a bit of an espresso like feel though it’s not coffee heavy. Bone dry aftertaste despite the rich body, and still some lingering booze. Fairly thick full body with soft carbonation. it’s good stuff, though best consumed in smaller volumes. Pretty lush but also a beast. jsnicholas (664) - Woodinville, Washington, USA - FEB 7, 2017
(bottle 22oz ) Dark brown with brown head. Having had most of the components of this blended beer, I can say this was great. Aroma is very bourbon which I like. Strong caramel and some sweetness. thorongil2 (3358) - , Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2017

Shared bottle. Pours hazy caramel colored with off-white head. Nose is oaky bourbon, hops, dark fruit. Tastes rich, with caramel, oak, tannins, bourbon, with more dark fruit and heat as it warms. vyvvy (6639) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 1, 2017
It pours very dark brown with a beige head. The aroma has vanilla, caramel, coconut, heavy toast, nuttiness, some wine aspects and barleywine malt assertiveness. It has a fairly thick body with light carbonation. The taste is drier version of the aroma and has some dates, woodiness and pleasing amount of warming alcohol. Great.

650ml bottle picked up at Mackey’s in Island Lake on a fluke, and cellared for almost 2 years. Shared by all (including Graham!) at the family Christmas ... and for Austin. Very dark brown pour with a bit of a brown head. Chocolate. Big vanilla. Espresso. Caramel. Quite well blended and super tasty. Very smooooth without much actual alcohol presence. Well worth the cellar time, and excited to have been able to share. 18 VsXsV (4528) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 7, 2016
Draught at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2015. Opaque almost black liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of coconut, vanilla, coffee, raw sugar. Taste is light to medium sweet and light to medium bitter with notes of vanilla, coffee and toffee. Full bodied with low to medium carbonation. Delicious, complex. nickd717 (4823) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 16, 2016
Bomber shared with some new friends at Vitamin B in Sofia, Bulgaria. Somehow I’ve had this before but hadn’t rated it. You know what they say: Ticks or it didn’t happen. Well now it’s happening. Black in color with a small light beige head. The aroma is very complex, with bourbon, oak, caramel, roast, smoke, dark chocolate, coconut, and vanilla. The flavor is also great, medium sweet with a balanced bourbon character, overripe fruits, and some booze on the finish. Fairly full-bodied and slick on the feel with soft carbonation. Very good, even among FW anniversary beers.
