UPDATED: MAR 11, 2011 Bottle with baby streets and grandpa. Pours pitch black with nice off white lacing that sits atop my beer the entire time. Aroma is coffee, roast, chocolate and espresso. Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy notes of chocolate, espresso, coffee, vanilla. GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2011
500ml bottle, US version - reads "Barrel Aged Breakfast", listed at 7.5% ABV.
Pours pitch black with an enormous mocha head that leaves insanely good lacing on the way down to a thick cap of foam.
Aroma is heavily roasted malts, bakers chocolate and only hints of sweet vanilla and bourbon notes. There is some coffee but it’s swept away by the toasted oak character and an interesting, almost chalky, chocolate presence.
Taste has more of a typical bourbon character up front with some vanilla and oak mixed in. The backbone is heavily roasted black malts, cocoa powder and maybe some coffee, though it’s faint. The finish is dominated by the toasted character and bourbon.
The mouthfeel is certainly thin for an impy stout, if that’s what we’re supposed to be comparing this too. The barrel character (more wood than bourbon) is the most prevalent characteristic.
This is a decent BA stout but the barrel really takes over the underlying beer. I’m such a big fan of the original and this is not as good for me. Would love to try the Brunch Weasel on bourbon as the base beer could stand up to the barrel. As a stout, very good; as an impy stout, OK. jtclockwork (16581) - , New Jersey, USA - MAR 5, 2011
Bottle. Pours black. Tan head. Nose of deep roasted coffee, dark chocolate, bourbon, oak and vanilla. Taste of roasted coffee, oatmeal, vanilla, burnt chocolate malt and oak chips. randy1301 (265) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 2, 2011
500ml bottle.Pours a dark black with a thick brown head.Nose is coffee and bourbon...a strange and interesting combo.Taste is also very interesting with tons of coffee up front with sweet and oaky bourbon finish.What else to say but another great beer from Mikkeller.

Bottle. Poured a creamy dark black with a thin dark beige head. Nose is coffee, roasted malt with a hint of the bourbon barrel. If I had never had the base beer I would have just come out and said this is an amazing barrel aged beer, and it is. Both versions are excellent but it’s possible I may prefer it without the bourbon. Then again maybe not. On third sip, definitely not!! Big roasted malts,huge coffee flavor and hints of chocolate delicately accentuated by bourbon barrel aging. Finish is a tad sweet between the chocolate and the abv.

Clear dark black color with a large, creamy, good lacing, fully lasting, beige head. Aroma is heavy malty, roasted, burnt, coffee, wood, moderate hoppy, perfume notes. Flavor is heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration, coffee, dark malts, chocolate malt. Body is medium to full, texture is oily - creamy, carbonation is soft. 
Bottle 50 cl. Pours a pitch black with a dense and lacing light brown head. Hard roast charcoal aroma – some licorice as well. Medium body, very burned maltiness, dark dried fruits and charcoal, a little vanilla too but not much Bourbon really. Ends malt astringent. 160111 Ungstrup (37561) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 16, 2011
Bottled. A black beer with a huge lazing dark brown beer. The aroma has notes of coffee, roasted malt, and wood. The flavor is sweet with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, bourbon, and wood, leading to a very dry, roasted, and alcoholic finish.
