iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
375mL bottle, no date from Julios for $17.99 or so. Hazy deep mahogany with a 1/2 finger tan head, creamy and fading to a thick ring rather quickly. A small head does rouse, but still fades quickly. Quite a bit of roast and chocolate in the nose up front with lots of woody bourbon--more bourbon than the brandy near as I can tell. There is some sweet moist tobacco leaves and rich caramel notes from the Angels Share in there, and make it tastier. Flavor is quite boozy and hot, still plenty roasty with the Serpents Stout shining through more so than the AS. Not as much caramel or tobacco notes, as the peppery roast and light burntness dominate. Woody hot boozy dry finish, bitterness at a 3 and ashy. Low carbonation with a full body. Good, but I prefer AS. If not for the booze I might prefer it to BA Serpents as well.

Thanks JC. Aroma is very nice, loads of fruit, ovaltine, coconut, booze, bourbon. Taste is very good. Rich, smooth, slick, booze is hidden but comes. Beautiful sweetness. Great stuff.

Bottle aged about a 1.5 years and poured into a taster showing taster showing pitch black with no head and very thick. The nose shows restrained light notes of light bourbon - oak, vanilla, and smoke. The palate is full bodied and lightly carbonated. Light alcoholic spiciness that develops to a big alcoholic spiciness on the end. Flavors of subdued bourbon with a light vanilla mouthfeel.

Dark brown color. Lots of brown sugar, molassses, fudge, burnt raisins, cherries, brandy, oak, vanilla in the nose. Amazingly bourbon brandy, molasses, dark chocolate, cherries, stewed oranges. Amazingly lingering warm molasses and brandy finish. Awesome.

Palme (4433) - Bergen, NORWAY - FEB 9, 2017
Corked 0.375l bottle @ Top Hops BA Bottle Share. This is a really deep intense oily black looking one with a small quickly sidesticking brownish top. Really lovely rich and nice aroma. Almost what I will call really sweet at first then it melts with wood, vanilla, spices, alcohol and licorice. Much the same in the lovely taste + some mild sourness, or perhaps tartness is a better describing word. Lighter than I imagined on the mouthfeel. Some heartburn from the alcohol - but it really works with all these amazing flavors. Really flavorful one for sure! Wish I had more time with this one. Ill go ahead and classify this as near amazing! 15.06.2013

Oakes (16655) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 3, 2017
Dark brown, thin head. Mapley, vanillin, complex nose requires study. On the palate, sweet, bourbon, sticky rich, rounded alcohol and barrel notes. Already wishing I had more and Im not even finished. Decadent but the influence of the brandy barrel lends fruit...the roastier stout elements are almost entirely subdued. Ridiculous.

Nische (2098) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 17, 2016
Pours pitch black with no head. Aroma of leather, wood, vanilla, molasses and figs. Evident barrel notes of toast, vanilla and very light dill. Big, bold taste with loads of berries upfront quickly turning into leather, wood, figs, vanilla and rich toffee. Big notes of bourbon coming through as well. Sweetish with a dry, woody finish. Big bodied with a very light carbonation. This is quite a monster.

Pours a viscous thick black color with aroma of vanilla, chocolate, fig, brandy, and dark fruit. Complex flavor with dark fruits, fig, and vanilla with chocolate and brandy booziness. Awesome beer!
