Sampled @ ACBF Vichte 2017. Trübes dunkel orange braunes Bier. Geruch nach röstmalz, Karamell, rote Früchte, Holz, bourbon. Geschmack nach holzigen roten Früchten, Vanille, leicht alkoholisch. Zlotta (3282) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - MAR 4, 2017
Sampled from tap at ACBF 2017. Dark reddish brown to black with a beige layer. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, molasses and toasted nuts. Very sweet, malty and slightly roasty taste of dark chocolate, coffee, licorice, oak and some red fruits, followed by a medium long, moderately roasty-bitter, a little dry and moderately warming finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Very good, but I hoped for a bit more to be honest. Koelschtrinker (20398) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAR 3, 2017

Bottle kindly shared by pilsnertest. Pours dark reddish brown. Completely still. Big aroma and taste with sugar syrup, dark fruit, prunes, toasted oak, cherry. Oily texture with a slight hit of booze. Magnificent. bulldogops (2491) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 19, 2017
Rating #2330 - 2016.02.11- Enjoyed on @drinkthispod #yeg. Bottle obtained at brewery. Pours an opaque dark reddish brown color, almost black. Very little white head that bubbles away quickly. Nice aroma of cherry, bourbon, alcohol, roasted earthy malt. Smooth mouthfeel, taste of oaky cherry chocolate, medium alcohol warmth on the palate, full bodied, lingering sweetness. Love the colour and depth that these Bourbon barrels and cherries have brought to this brew. Exquisite.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2017 Bottle share. Dark, flat pour. Big boozy aroma. Taste comes in big, cherries, malty, sweet. Doesn’t taste boozy, but sneaks up on you. Near perfect. 2012 sampled. rouhlas (3616) - GREECE - DEC 20, 2016
355 ml bottle at home. Dark brown almost black color with no head. Malty aroma, chocolate, dark dried fruits, caramel, wood, smoked notes, sherry notes. Sweet and light bitter taste like aroma but better. Almost medium oily body with flat carbonation FatPhil (16102) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 4, 2016

Smells of whatever spirit was in the barrel, some barrel. Nice raisiny taste, but outragiously sweet. Woody, but so damn sweet. Doesn’t hide the alcohol, it smothers the alcohol. Sweet boozy mess.
Overpriced beer tasting 2016. 12oz bottle, 2015 release, shared by Rasmus, thanks! Dark brown beer, no head. Nose is woody, fruity, oak, malt, bourbon, cherries, sweetness, booze. Flavor is cherries, raisins, wood, chocolate. Finish is woody, raisins, alcohol, malt, booze. Very woody. Rask0lnikov (1298) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 3, 2016
330ml bottle. Dark brown colour. No head. Lots of toffee, hints of cherries, alcochol in the aroma. Toffee, sourness, hints of cherries, alcochol, sourness in the taste. Rather heavy bodied, low carbonated brew. Raisiny. Quite complex.
