Bottle kindly shared by plovmand thanks a lot. :-)
I had rather high expectations to this one, now the org. brunch for sure is a fantastic brew.
Unfortunately they wasn’t fulfilled, but its still a very interesting experiment those brunch special editions.
It pours pitch black with a small light brown head.
The aroma is intense with lots of roasted malt, liquorice, coffee, tar, hops and alcohol.
Flavour is dominated by alcohol with a hint of whiskey, but also with strong notes of roasted malt, liquorice, wood, coffee and hops. The after taste is quite bitter with roasted malt notes. sunevdj (4128) - Copenhagen OE, DENMARK - OCT 20, 2009

Had this at the Borefts Beer Festival, De Molen Brewery, Bodegraven, Netherlands 30-10-09 This is just so very different to the Speyside edition, its like its a totally different beer. This version retains the richness and fulness that the Speyside edition was lacking, there is a nice warmth from the alcohol, nicely bitter and roasty, lovely coffee and chocolate, a step up for more in comparison to the Speyside.

On tap at Borefts BF 09. I was just on a run of really good beers at this point. Black, lasting tan head. Bit hot, but the intense coffee comes through. I mean let me sit here for a while and enjoy. I like it a lot. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - NOV 15, 2009

, Pori. Deep ambery brown colour, not much head. Aroma is oak, some smoke and also roasted malts, liquorice and some alcohol. Flavour is quite much the same. Quite wellbalanced.
Bottle. Thick black pour with a short, creamy, dark tan head that doesn’t last long. Nose is slightly boozy with notes of coffee, cocoa, vanilla, iodine, smoke and licorice. Flavour is similar but more malty and woody giving stronger impressions of vanilla, nuts and wood; however the coffee and cocoa elements are just as strong as well as some fruity notes, cherry in particular. Smooth, oily mouthfeel with fairly low carbonation and a lingering roasty, bitter finish. Very good, the whisky influence becoming more noticeable as it warms, but still no better than the regular version, which is pretty amazing.

Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of wood, roasted malt, whiskey, and alcohol, as well as light notes of vanilla. The flavor is sweet with strong notes of roasted malt and alcohol, as well as medium notes of whiskey and wood and light notes of soy sauce, leading to a very dry, roasted, alcoholic, whiskey, and woody finish. nimbleprop (8761) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 14, 2010
500ml bottle pours an opaque black. Nose is sweet, brown sugar, chocolate, vanilla, wood pulp, cinnamon, wet pine forest. The coffee is totally lost in the nose. Flavor is sweet, vanilla, coconut, butterscotch, coffee, toasted breads. Full bodied, buttery finish.
