Bottle split at ChrisO tasting, London. It pours a dark brown color with medium beige head. Aroma is roasted malts, toffee, milk chocolate, vanilla ice cream and bourbon booze. Taste has more hot sweetness, with caramel, bourbon, ashes, dark chocolate. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, nice bourbon action

Bottle at Chriso going Dutch tasting, 03/07/14. Extremely dark mahogany brown/light black with a moderate tan covering that dissipates to edgeing and a swirl. Nose is light roast, hoppy citric leanings, liqourice, herbal rinse, aniseed, light BA Jack effect. Taste comprises light cocoa powder, mellow dark fruit, dark maltings, toffee fudge, spice, JD tones evident. Medium body, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok BA impy, fairly simple stuff but tasty and drinkable.

Bottle at Craig on heat tasting. Subtle barrel aged. Chocolate glue. Ok drinkable in mouth not sure the barrel ageing adds anything both elements wander around in a desolate way. Ok ish.
