MOARBEER (791) - - JAN 9, 2013
I expected this to be a monster but it was nothing of the sort. Aroma, although very strong bourbon was nowhere near as heavy as I expected. Taste also strong bourbon but somewhat thinner mouthfeel than the hype promised. A little too heavy on the bourbon and a little too lacking in depth. A great porter but my expectation was higher.

alobar (3970) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2017
Pours cola brown with a brown head. Aroma of vanilla, booze, and roasted malt. Well-balanced with vanilla, roasted malt, toffee, and booze. Very nice.

Casper0904 (568) - DENMARK - SEP 9, 2017
Fine, balanced and rich body, that gives you a good beer experience, alone on a winter evening.

GothGargoyle (2588) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Black with a creamy light brown head. Aroma is caramel, chocolate, liquorice root, cocoa, fudge. Medium-full bodied, lightly sticky mouthfeel, starts fruity on the palate with a long sweet finish. Taste is chocolate, bourbon, anise, wood, cocoa.

Ferris (17120) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 17, 2016
Bottle - Nice boozy roasty notes. Jet brown with a decent brown head. Loght barrel notes, some sweetness, touch of sour. Very light on the palate and more barrel notes.

Inbreak (6723) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 24, 2014
17.12.2014, 0,375l bottle shared @ BBGTC tasting:
Nice light brown creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is rich and sweet, dark sugar, sweet licorice, soy sauce, dark malts, mild bourbon, grass, vanilla, oak, dark fruits, salty caramel. Taste is sour-ish burnt, dark malts, ashtray, burnt sour coffee, grass, oak, minerals, bourbon, paper. Medium bitterness, dry harsh mouthfeel. Fair enough.

ej (1330) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle from 2009. Pours a dark brown, looking black in the glass. Head is medium, fully diminishing. Aroma is still pretty intense. Loads of roast and bourbon. Hints of chocolate, soy-sauce and burnt wood. Taste is roasty and semi sweet. Coffee, liquorice, leather and tar. Was probably better a few years ago.

3.4
ClubGonzo (5683) - Bergen, NORWAY - DEC 17, 2014
Bottle, shared with BBGTC @ The Christmas Tasting 2014. Deep brown, near-black body with a large dark beige head. Aroma is bourbon, pepper, wood, soy sauce, alcohol, chocolate and hints of coffee and vanilla. Taste is chocolate, charcoal, ashes, coffee and hints of roasted bread, alcohol and cinnamon. Medium body and carbonation. Pretty nice, particularly the aroma, but a bit thin, alcoholic and roasty all in all.
