Bottle 330ml from 2006 @ fonefanMiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Pours pitch black with very thin tan head. Aroma has notes of oak, vanilla, bourbon, coffee and chocolate. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Texture is oily with soft carbonation.
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. saxo (19522) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle at fonefan tasting. Medium head with good duration. Color is black. Aroma and taste are bourbon, vanilla, roast malt, chocolate and coffee. chrisv10 (18504) - DENMARK - DEC 11, 2010
Bottle from FOneFan from 2006. Very dark brown with tiny beige head. Flavour is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, wood and bourbon. zathrus13 (1776) - Mount Laurel, New Jersey, USA - NOV 21, 2010
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.
