4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of booze, vanilla, some roastiness. Black with practically non-existent brownish head. Taste is heavy alcohol, like burning level. More vanilla and bourbon. Really bitter finish. This is a fun thing to try. A little to strong for me, but still fantastic.

Backlog, Bottle, pours a deep black with coffee head. Smell and taste are heavy bourbon, char, chocolate, espresso bean, wood, and vanilla bean. This one def stings at the 19 percent. A small pour was more than enough. Zlotta (3811) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - SEP 30, 2016

Intensiver malziger Antrunk, ölig. Alkoholnoten, die Holznoten fallen zurück, das Bier wirkt eindimensional. Okay. 10/8/8/9/12/8 tfredvik (2032) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 28, 2016
Pours a very viscous-looking close to black body with a tiny, short-lived head. Sweet and intense aroma of dark roasted malt, dark caramel, chocolate, coffee, bourbon and liquorice. Intense flavour of alcohol, dark roasted malt, dark caramel, chocolate and coffee. Moderate to heavy sweet taste with a fairly heavy bitter and long-lasting finish. Full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice brew, but would it have been even better if the ABV had been lower? Sigmund (7910) - Tau, NORWAY - AUG 12, 2016
