Vintage 2015 Pours a darker cola flavor. Warming alcohol and a nice flavors of cinnamon, fig and winter spices. Little bit of vanilla. Surprised how muted the barrel flavors are at one year. Still pretty good though. ciocanelu (2455) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - OCT 8, 2016
Really dark brown, almost black with a bit of mocha head. Aroma is huge. Lots of bourbon, dark fruits, dried figs, brown sugar, really complex. Taste is also really intense. Sweet and warning at first with bourbon, chocolate, dark fruits and finishes with butterscotch, creme brulee and earthy bitterness. Medium body with smooth mouthfeel and a hint of booze. Really complex beer, strong and intense. bursprak (3183) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2016

(from 65cL bottle @ RBBSG IV, the Hot and Sweaty Edition, Gent 2015. I was under the impression it was 2013 vintage, but I see Tim and Ships are saying ’14 and ’15, respectively. Ah, well, we’ll never know now.. Thanks for sharing, JefVerstraete!)
Bottle thanks to zakoon. Pours towards black with a beige head. Aroma of sweet bourbon, dark sweet fruits, caramel, toffee and slight bitter chocolate. Taste is sweet and syrupy, big bourbon notes, caramel, dark sweet fruits and ripe plums. MotherBrother (941) - Aalborg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2016
Pour pretty darn dark, as good as black, with a small light khaki head.
Aroma has plenty of wet wood n’ bourbon. Chocolate, the vanilla,light roast, light ground coffee, slight chared oak, weak charcoal. Pretty nice and a whole lot of bourbon up in this bitch.
Taste is pretty sweet, with a faint roasted bitterness.
Medium and semi oily body, with a rather flat carbonation. Klimaet (2539) - Aarhus N, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2016
