UPDATED: MAR 3, 2015 Dark cola pour with minimal tan head. Aroma is dark prunes and fruits - nice but not super complex on the nose. Taste is a beautiful combination of barrel and beer - vanilla caramel to the max, sweet finish with some dark fruits coming out; toasty in a good way. Not a very full bodied beer but the flavours are exceptional. Delicious stuff. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2014

Bomber, from 2012 i think, courtesy of Tommy and Chris, thanks! Thick black pour, with light chocolate milk head. Aroma, roasted malts, strong whiffs of oak, and vanilla, stings the nose a bit. Taste is roasted malts, loads of oak and wood, almost scrapes the palate, toast dry finish with a touch of warmth from the booze. Really nice. dfearnley (2140) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 3, 2014
