UPDATED: FEB 23, 2015 Bottle split 5 ways, thanks guys for sharing! Pitch black pour with a small dense tan head that fades away and leaves small lacings on top. Nose is full of cinnamon, milk chocolate, coconut, vanilla and a tiny hint of the chillies. Taste is really intense, everything melts together in a perfect way. Vanilla, spices, cacao powder, whiskey and then with a lingering hot finish. Very good indeed!

MrHangover (4120) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle @ ZZT X, courtesey of kermis. Pours a pitch black beer with a small tanned head on top. Aroma of coconut, chocolate, vanilla. Flavor is quite bitter, loads of cocoa in there and vanilla. Big sweetness going on, alchohol is mellowing out a bit and gives even more sweet flavors going on. Aftertaste is sweet as well. Very decent, but the sweetness is overwhelming.

Bottle shared at ZZT 10. Pours black with a small brown head. Aroma of cinnamon, cacao, milk chocolate, bounty, coconut, fruity chilli, vanilla, whiskey barrel. Flavor is heavy sweet but in no way cloying and over moderate bitter. Full bodied with soft carbonation. Excellent and worth the hype, really improving on the base beer.

Vestergaard (1861) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2015 Bottle from trade with Matt! Pours a pitch Black with a Nice looking, dense, dark brown head. Aroma has huuuge cinnamon. Cinnamon rolls to be exact. Dough, vanilla, cookies, cocoa and a hint of sweet bourbon/whiskey. Some dry oak balances the sweetness. Taste has more of this sweet vanilla-whiskey-oak character, Brown sugar and syrup, nice, Dark roast, a hint of coffee, and then it ends off with some lovely chili heat, which together with the barrels gives a really Nice, balanced beer.. Although its first of all just a cake in a bottle! Much better than the original! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
