Tap at RFD. Very dark reddish brown, medium tan head, solid lacing - who says a BA can’t have a head?. Aroma of Irish coffee. Taste is too heavy on the whiskey, not enough on the beer. madmitch76 (26850) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
18th July 2008. A complex porter with no bitterness or dryness. Smooth chocolatey dark malt with a pleasant sour tang presumably coming from the whiskey. The barreling adds another dimension. A lovely porter that can stand shoulder to shoulder with a lot of RISs out there. cgarvieuk (26609) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 24, 2009

Rubyish red colour, small brown head. Aroma is very beautiful oak, vanilla, plum, sweet malts, liquorice and mild roasted notes. Flavour is even more oaked, slightly plummy and mildly syrupy. Balanced and lovely.
Bottled at Sorbon, Bromma, Stockholm. Opaque black, rich beige head. Fruity nose with vanilla/oak and coffee/licorice. Sweet and full bodied with syrup and coffee as ell as bourbon and molasses. Sugar and bourbon grows to dominate. On the surface it acts just as the top examples of the highly praised concept of bourbon barrel aging dark ales. A closer inspection reveals a stickyness and fruitiness, and it lacks elegance. It is tasty, but still feels like a poor photo copy of a masterpiece.
