Bottle. Pitch black with a small creamy tan head. The aroma is heavy roasted with notes of hops, liquorice and coffee. Light vanilla, light smoke, roasted malt, coffee and loads of hops in the flavour. Very nice! Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of fonefan. Pours an opaque black with a small and rough brown head. Lovely Bourbon aroma combined with hard roast malt and some licorice. Solid body woth a low carbonation, hard roast malts and some licorice allsorts. Some malt bitterness. The barrel-aging is very subtle and balanced. 180810 MiP (16055) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2010
Bottle, 8.0%. Distinct vanilla aroma. Almost black colour, seems a little hazy. The flavour also has a lot of vanilla along with a grassy sort of hop. Very late hard roasted malt flavour. Quite refreshing with the hoppiness.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2010 Black with a medium beige head. Sweet aroma with roasted malt, coffee, liqeurice and hops. Flavor had plenty of burned malt, dark chocolate, coffee, plenty of hops and english liqeurice. Finished sweet and burned. Nice one. sm89walt (2082) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 11, 2010
Bottle @ Chriso’s pre-GBBF ’Raise the Roof’ Tasting ’10. Oh yes, this is bloody good. Another heavy hitting stout and I’m only 3 beers into the tasting. Not much of a head, just a circling layer of tan bubbles on a black beer but heavy on the glass. So much going on, it chucks out dried fruit, chocolate, vanilla, oak and sweet US whisky aromas. Quite sweet and (dark) fruity upfront, supported by a (milk) chocolate sweetness and (dark) choc/liquorice bitterness, roasty malts and bourbon edging. Soft & oily palate, medium to full body, warming with a mid-length finish. oh6gdx (26485) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2010

Chriso rock the roof down pre-GBBFtasting. (thanks to hanniku for the bottle!). Pitch black colour, small brown head. Aroma is smoked malts, some whiskey, vanilla and roasted malts in a very nice balance. Flavour s being a very nice mix of the same. One of the better whiskey aged beers.
Bottle at Chris O’s ‘Raise the roof’ tasting. Black pour, beige head. Coffee, chocolate aromas. Quite floral.. Smoky, woody flavours with a hint of dark chocolate. A little peaty. Very nice bourbonesque (is that a word? If not it’s about time it was!) infusion. cgarvieuk (26387) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - AUG 9, 2010
