MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2012 Bottle, 11%. Distinct vanilla aroma, bourbon barrel. Almost black colour. Oily mouthfeel, rather sugary. The flavour is nicely sweet with lots of vanilla. Late barley bitterness. --- Same version, I think, 2 years later. The aroma still has a lot of vanilla, cigarbox. Very low carbonation, almost flat. Sweetish flavour, good vanilla note. Not boozy in spite of its strength. Would have liked a bit more carbonation.

Bottle, thanks Ken. Pours black, with no head. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, wine, alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, and coffee. Flavor is fruit, smoke, roasted malt, vanilla, wine, bourbon, and alcohol. No carbonation, and some would certainly have improved this.
