Bottle, courtesy of theydon_bois. Thanks Colin! Tan head on a black body. Fruity coffee, maple syrup, vanilla, roasty toast, more coffee. Medium to high sweetness, without being sticky, slightly roasty woody finish. Very sweet, but super nice and well done. Thanks so much Colin! SinH4 (7034) - Garching b.

Bottle, many thanks herrklemann and Theydon_Bois! Pitch black color with super dense beige head. Aroma is maple, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, coffee. Taste is maple, vanilla, bourbon, chocolate. Super velvety mouthfeel with fine-bubbled carbonation. Fantastic, despite the intense sweetness. Trolleo (1961) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 17, 2018
Wonderful aroma of chocolate, wood, cocoa, whiskey barrel, some alcohol, maple, coconut, burbon. Oily pitch black color with small sized brown head. Chocolate taste, pretty sweet, burbon, whiskey and cocoa. Divine texture, full body, creamy, oily, thick, flat. Bitter cocoa finish, but after half minute it turns back to sweetness. Double finish! Extremely close to perfection. I would like it little less sweet, that's all. //bottle DrnkMcDermott (3201) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2018
RATING #3,200! 5 oz. glass, $8 at the Barrelman's Room of Ballydoyle, Downers Grove.
Even this tiny taster glass has a very strong smell of bourbon and maple syrup. A somewhat stiff tan head that took a while to dwindle, leaving some legs behind.
The taste is full and sugary. Like the current KBS, it packs 11.7% abv, but the actual alcohol doesn't show itself after the first few sniffs. The texture is lighter than how I remember the KBS, but there is a distinct note of maple, too. After the first few sips, it comes across like a bourbon with a maple chaser. I also get some notes of vanilla from the barrel aging, and coffee from the roast malt. It’s a big beer, surprisingly not very heady, making it very easy to make the mistake of slurping it all down.

baardzo ładna beczka robi klimat, orzechowo-waniliowo-likierowy, pyszny ris ba, alkohol w domyśle, zupełnie nie psuje smaku - świetne, zasłużenie cenione piwo. TBone (18840) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 14, 2018
Tap at Beer Hunters. Opaque colour, small steady beige head and lace. Cream toffee, coffee and bourbon in the nose. Full-bodied. Fudge, bourbon, coffee finish. Full, sweet with coffeish finish. Good but perhaps KBS is better. rafax (506) - POLAND - MAR 13, 2018
On tap. Jet black with medium, solid, frothy, tan head and a good lacing. Nose full of chocolate and bourbon, also some raisins and maple syrup tones. Strong and solid. Full body, oily and super smooth. Very sweet but balanced with a light spicy and warming alcohol in the finish. Chocolate and sweet coffee flavors in taste, after several sips a light bitterness in the finish. Amazing! czlowiekmotyka (649) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAR 12, 2018
It does not live up to hype. Some maple but more like a toast. Thick and a bit sweet but regular KBS is tastier. fillepolo (1223) - SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2018
UPDATED: MAR 12, 2018 Bottle from systembolaget. Pours a dark colour beer with a smal head. Roasted malt with notes of chocolate, coffee and sweet maple syrup. Dry finish.
