tiong (6901) - Espoo, FINLAND - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle @ SBWF12

Pours pitch black with a dark brown head. Strong bourbony and roasty aroma with notes of vanilla and oak. Strong roasty and bourbony taste with notes of vanilla, oak, wood, alcohol. Finish is complex, dark and roasty. Hints of vanilla and oak. Excellent, well balanced barrel aged is.

(From notes) Bottle. Aroma is a bit smokey and, for some reason, I thought I noticed hints of bacon. Oh well. Very smooth. Although I have not had the original version of George! I do think I would rate this one higher. The bourbon barrel gives it a nice smoothness and sweetness. Still, not as good as Black Hole Bourbon BA. If not for the price, I would certainly have this one again.

laiti (8249) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 9, 2012
25 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 24.06.2010
Aroma is rather strong on stinging bourbon and some woody notes. Rather hard to find anything behind those. Flavour is harsh and rich on stinging whiskey. Also lots of smoke and some tar. A beer so high on bourbon you find it hard to find any IS in your glass. But still this is good.

UPDATED: DEC 20, 2013 tasted in the culminator ( recomended by belgianbeergeek ) purs black , little ( fading) foam. smells impressive tastes very heavy (especialy for 12,12 percent ) very thick, it even makes your glass turn brown for like a minute when you shake it ! i enjoyed this one, but a 25 was a bit to much for one time i guess. if you split this , you would have (just not enough wich would be better than a little to much . either way, glad ive tasted it !

fletchfighters (1493) - AUSTRALIA - AUG 15, 2012
A-- Poured a liquid brownie. Crap this is thick. Motor oil black with a dark leather head that was at best half a finger. A few erupting bubbles in the head but not much else. A few lines of streaky lacing on the sides of the glass. S-- Smoked malts, vanilla extract, chocolate, oak, dark fruits and bourbon. Warm liquid brownie smell. Most excellent. T-- Thick and sludgy tasting. Oak and bourbon in the taste but not in your face like some I have had in the US. M-- Yeah liquid brownie very much fits. After the initial Oak and Bourbon get more dark fruits and chocolate again. I think get more of the oak from the barrel than the bourbon from the barrel in the mouth. Very typical Mikkeller as it is also a bit syrupy and a bit sweet. Low carbonation and quite heavy feel. Get some hop bitterness in the mid palate as well as smoke in the front and mid palate. D-- Do not let this 250 ML bottle fool you. It is a monster.

JanLaursen (3227) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 10, 2012
Bottle, 25 cl. Pitch black with an impressive chocolate dark brown head. Aroma is extremely enticing - smooth dark sugars, rich preserved plums, bourbon, vanilla, light licorice, wood. Smooth velvet in the mouth, very rich and amazingly flavorful. Thick as hell and dark chocolate malty. Plummy. Roasted. Some hops. Warming alcohol. A desert in itself. Smooth acidic and malty bitter finish. To drink in small quantities.

bottle from nick on 12/18/11. looks the same as the regular version. smells like stout candy... vinous, bs, vanilla, cream, dusty wood and roast. the flavor is the same but it has a sourness like it is going down hill. it is still sweet and not as good as the original...why do it then?

A huge thanks to digita6793 for sending this rare gem to me. A 25 CL bottle. pours a thick vicious motor oil. This beast stains my glass. A thin reddish hue rings my glass. A huge barrel in the nose. Deep rich chocolate and dark fruits. A touch of sweetness is present also. Maybe the smoothest BA beer I have ever had. The bourbon is blended extermely well with chocolate and malts. Oak is present on the back end with some dark fruit. Nice and creamy. With a amazing finish that makes me want another pour.

Bottle. Pours pitch black with a large thick darkbrown head. Deep aroma of licorice, root cellar and a hint of bourbon. Licorice and chocolat in the taste, some alcohol. High carbonation, med/full body. Pretty sweet, dry oak in the end. Nice.
