Nische (2053) - 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.

tightslice (1115) - Redwood City, California, USA - AUG 8, 2016
On tap at Harrys Hofbrau in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is charred dark fruits, dark chocolate, slight brandy / liqueur notes. Taste is dark chocolate with some burnt and brandied fruit bits. Excellent but had this back-to-back with the Port Older Viscosity (which was on a completely different level despite behind so closely rated ) American Strong Ale - Port Older Viscosity (#3) / Lost Abbey Deliverance (#4)

MrHangover (4192) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 1, 2016
Botle. Pours a dark ruby red beer withouth any head or signs of carbonation on top. Aroma is masterfull, loads of bourbon notes, sweet oak, molasses and sweet vanilla with hints of caramel. Flavor is intense, sweetness, some boozy notes, rich oak notes. The richness and complexity of this beer is amazing. Dark red fruits, loads of bourbon, sweeter booze and all mixed to perfection. No carbonation, silky cloying mouhfeel and long, long sweet finish. Awesome!

Svesse (8008) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2016
(Bottle) Black colour, flat with no head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of caramel, coffee, oak wood, vanilla, dried fruit, chocolate and a touch of brandy. A slight Angels Share acidity. Malty, roasted taste with black coffee, caramel, dried fruit, oak wood, vanilla, bourbon, treacle, sweet liquorice and a warming finish with hints of bourbon and a generous cacao bitterness. Full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, with a certain sweetness. Dark, complex, powerful and long-lasting like the Opeth song with the same name. Excellent beer!

vyvvy (6078) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2016
It pours very dark with very little head. The aroma has brandy, dark caramel, figs, red wine, toffee and some oak. It has oily thick body with very little carbonation. The taste has brandy, red berries, dark caramel/toffee, rich malt and shows a lot more barleywine than stout. The finish is very oaky and shows some bourbon. Excellent. Big thanks to gregwilsonstl for sharing this beauty with me.

No head. Thick. Smells like bourbon. One of the strongest smelling beers I can remember. Very strong aroma. Oak. Vanilla. Toffee. Almost too much bourbon for me. Thx Malster85.
