Melker (254) - Gteborg, - MAY 3, 2013
Almost black. No head, just a few tiny bubbles. Aroma of coffee, cognac, chocolate, tar, liqourice, vanilla. Some sweetness in the taste. Roasty, some leathery notes and a little bit of alcohol. Also some bitterness. Really creamy liquid. Thick and sticky, Soft carbonation.

Svartvit (321) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle shared at De Gekke Geit tasting. 250ml bottle, 2011(?) vintage. Pours black with a small tan ring. Very smooth malty character, cognac adds a fruity sweetness, caramel, oak, smokey/meaty, a bit of a strange twist to it. Raisins, molasses, berries. Over medium sweet, medium bitter. Over medium body, low carbonation.

Maakun (4644) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 21, 2017
Bottle shared thanks to RandomStrangerNL. Black with a dark beige ring. Sweet berries, dark coffee, some vanilla, light horse poop, quite earthy, oxidized notes, port wine, licorice, tar. Quite sweet, medium bitter and light sour. Full bodied. Good stuff but the finish has this weird burning cow dung to it unfortunately.

klm1 (1294) - Bled, SLOVENIA - SEP 15, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2017 Head to head vs. Mikkeller George! BA Calvados, vintage 2013: Pours black oily color, clear, with foamy brown head, which immediately transforms itself to a ring around the glass. Aroma: intense malt aroma, supported with intense Cognac note, hint of vanilla...flavor: intense malt flavor, with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, cacao nibs, vanilla, oak, hint of cinnamon, supported with intense note of cognac, which steps forward in second half. Finish is dry, slightly astringent. Body is full, texture silky smooth, carbonation is low. Both are very, very good, for sure the winner is Bourbon BA😉

250 ml bottle. Pours black with a short lived dark brown head. Aroma is chocolate, plum pudding, figs, umami. Flavor is chocolate, coffee, figs, dates, hazelnut, meat, beef. Finish is chocolate, coffee, oldish, wood. Lingering overripe fruits. Full body, velvety, soft and oily mouthfeel, null carbonation. Very solid!

Svesse (8148) - Hsselby, SWEDEN - APR 17, 2016
(Bottle) Pitch black colour with dense, dark brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of strong black coffee, cacao, liquorice, treacle, tar, asphalt, black rye bread, oak wood and a touch of cognac. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, cacao, dark chocolate, liquorice, sweet soy sauce, oak wood, cognac and a warming finish with some alcohol, a generous coffee bitterness and a touch of cognac. Full body, quite sweet. Thick and oily texture. Hardly subtle, but very tasty and fairly well balanced (considering it carries a certain punch). Excellent beer!

Thick RIS, and it looks it. Calvados not imposing but rounds out the stout. Very rich and worth seeking out.
