Bottle drunk 7/7/17, huge thanks to Adam for sharing. Didn’t think I’d ever try this one.fonefan (50733) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2017
Dark mahogany body shows low/little clarity and a tan ring of bubbles quickly fizzles away.
Caramel is immediately chased by a big helping of coconut. It’s a bit dominant, still, but at least feels authentic/real. Light oxidation is present, adding a touch of light sherry but thankfully no huge fudge or intense chocolate/caramel notes hit. Lots of bread though and at a mere three years of age, this one already seems like it’s past its prime. Alcohol is under control and light chocolate and coconut lingers with a touch of bread and soy.
Very rich up front, though mostly caramel and bread. Chocolate and light fudge through the middle as malts create a very, very "thick" texture. Low carbonation but still engaging. Quite a bit more complex than the aroma would suggest and that’s probably because the coconut character oddly does not manifest itself much in the flavor. Instead, layers of raisin, toffee, light char and warm alcohol surge forth with surprisingly low oxidation. Funny that the nose is so much more tired and underwhelming, while the flavor/texture seems pretty well intact. Strong acidity, not exactly sure from where, keeps this mostly balanced, and it’s competent and drinkable, though nothing particularly exciting stands out for me.

September 19, 2015 - at The Kernel with a whole bunch of RateBeer lunatics for Zwanze Day. Bottle generously shared by lagerloather with the gang. Black pour, oily loooking, nice brown creamy head. Smells amazing - for once a bourbon beer with some restraint - this is all about the roast, with interesting bittering character. Taste is surprisingly delicate, well-balanced, restrained bourbon once again - sweet with hibiscus, coconut, hazelnut and nougat. Slick, light body, low-level carbonation, mouthfeel is mostly oily malt and restraint - loved it. mR_fr0g (13226) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 5, 2017
Bottle shared at Ratebeer awards show. 30/01/2016. Huge thanks to whomever brought it. A viscous mahogany brown coloured pour with no head. Aroma is big smooth bourbon, vanilla oak, shaved coconut, soicy jamaica cake, and chocolate. Flavour is composed of sticky caramel, toffee, praline chocolate, vanilla, bourbon and some brown sugars. Palate is full and sticky, moderate to low carbonation. Very nice!

9e ou 10e variante de la soirée? Je ne sais plus. Je ne compte plus depuis fort longtemps de toute façon. Cette variante me plaît toutefois beaucoup en apportant une belle fraîcheur à mon palais beurré par toutes les variantes précédentes. Le liquide a beau être noir comme la nuit, cette étiquette bleue turquoise semble l’éclaircir. Des arômes qui ne sont pas ceux du bâton de cannelle mais d’une écorce aromatique qui s’y apparente fortement. Des arômes du sud, de vanille, de palmiers. L’eau de coco me plaît beaucoup. On est loin de la noix de coco artificielle et grossière. Cette eau de coco est légère, aromatique et semble réellement alléger le liquide. Belle présence d’épices boisées, de bâton de cannelle qui n’est pas du bâton de cannelle (excuse-moi ingrédient mystère, je ne sais pas comment t’appeler), d’alcool chaud et doux. Une variante étonnante et très réussie. RasmusOtt (2849) - Aarhus, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2016
Bottle at Dangerous bottleshares 20th edition. Pours black with a tiny brown head. Aroma of cinnamon, bourbon, coconut, chocolate, dark fruits, tonic, vanilla and brown sugar - overall pretty awesome! The taste has vanilla, cinnamon, dark sugar, caramel, bourbon, slight smokey whiskey and coconut. Full smooth body and just rich and complex. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - SEP 2, 2016
