375ml bottle from Kihoskh, abv 13.5%. Pitch black, small creamy brown head, some lacing. Roasted barley aroma with a lot of bourbon, also vanilla, oak, leather and mild coffee notes. Soft carbonated, full-bodied, chewy and oily mouthfeel. Bourbon taste up front and behind the bourbon roasted and sweet taste. Smooth and creamy chocolate, toffee and vanilla, roasted barley, chalky cocoa, mild black coffee and licorice. Nice balance between the roasted notes, the sweetness and the bourbon, they all play their part well. Pleasantly warming finish. OminouSC2 (846) - Mora, SWEDEN - OCT 1, 2016
Tasted as 13,5% ABV. Pitch black color, minimal brown head. Aromas of chocolate, cacao, vanilla, wood, alcohol and bourbon. Taste of ’arraksbollar’ (basically chocolate pastries with arrack in them), vanilla, bourbon and chocolate. Warming finish with a lot of alcohol - too much alcohol, actually. That is also the only flaw with this beer. Brilliant. skortila (5970) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2016
Bottled. 10cl sample. The aroma has bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, roast with nice smooth coffee tones. Black coloured beer with a thin, off-white lace. The taste is light bitter, has some sweetness, bourbon vanilla, chocolate. Smooth, full and complex. Really nice. thorongil2 (3372) - , Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2016

Piwo to potężny (13,5%) mariaż nut drewna i burbonu, kakao, czerwonych owoców, kawy i paloności. Już zapach miażdży zmysły, a w połączeniu ze smakiem i posmakiem kokosu i wanilii rozwala system. FatPhil (16956) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2016
375ml bottle - thanks martjoobolut! At 13.5%martjoobolut (4947) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2016
Ugh - rubber and beans aroma, some booze too. Black, no head worth mentioning. Lightish mouthfeel, crispish carbonation. Taste much better, rich sweet vanillaey roast, and a dumper truck of bourbon with associated booze. However, it’s kinda pleasant. Some coconut in the finish with the sweet vanillaey roast. Ooof, that was a struggle, gullet is throbbing. Sweet boozy booze.
Bottle, 13.5℅ abv (from beergium). Pours dark brown-black. Aroma is sweet, bourbon, vanilla, roast, malt, booze. Flavor is sweet and bitter, roast, cacoa, malt, vanilla, malt, bourbon. Finish is roast, sweet, and bourbon. Overall: very good. Marduk (8219) - Reval, ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2016
375ml bottle (thanks Mart). Murky dark brown color. Small size, brown head, stays. Bourbon, sweet, raw cocoa, alcohol, pig fat, roast in aroma. Cocoa powder, sweet, caramel, alcohol, vanilla in taste. Alcohol, caramel and cocoa in aftertaste. Cocoa beans bitterness. Sweet for me. Sweet and boozy brew.
