Bottle at Sune. Pitch black coloured with a small beige ehad. Sweet and roasted aroma of dark chocolate, dried fruits and liquorice with notes of coconuts and bourbon. Sweet and roasted flavour of dark chocolate, dried fruits, alcohol, bourbon and liquorice. Sweet and roasted finish. Nice, but too sweet.

sunevdj (4126) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2011
Pours black wih a beige head. Smells of almonds and bourbon. Super-over-sweet lots of cocoa and lakridskonfekt aromas. So sweet it makes it cloying and slightly nauseating. The good thing: Bourbon aromas. Also lots of candy aromas. Full to heavy bodied. Medium to soft carbonation. Long very sweet finish. Unbalanced. DNF

There was no head at all, deep mahogany to black in color, thick and viscous. The aroma is filled with molasses, raisins, bourbon, wood, vanilla, and alcohol. The taste is filled with wood, bourbon, a strong french roasted coffee, and then some vanilla towards the end. In the mouth there is noticeable alcohol heat, clings to the palate. No need to over indulge this one it warms up in the glass nicely.

drowland (9057) - Georgia, USA - JAN 29, 2011
Rating 2600! 12/17/10. Solid black appearance with a small brown head that’s gone instantly. Huge boozey aroma with char, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and more. Amazing sweet chocolate and vanilla flavor with a tiny bit of roast. This reminds me of cream soda and coconut as well.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 28, 2011
2010 bottle. Aroma has big notes of roasted malts, vanilla, bourbon, oak, molasses, chocolate, espresso, sweet dark dried fruits. Viscous black hue with a small fully disappearing brown head. No lace. Flavor is very sweet and medium/heavy bitterness. Palate is very full bodied and oily soft. Medium cloying finish and noticeable alcohol burn. Overall a very rich and intense beer. A little too sweet and cloying for me to really enjoy all those aromas but overall not bad.

SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 28, 2011
Black pour with a creamy tan head. Big roasty aroma with toffee, vanilla, chocolate and coffee. Flavor is great, with all of the above and the vanilla really coming through. Creamy on the palate. Delicious!
