Zlotta (4482) - Hagen, GERMANY - APR 7, 2018
0.375 l bottle from 'Ace Drinks', 2014 vintage. Black with a thin, frothy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of caramel, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon and some oak. Quite sweet, malty, slightly roasty taste of cocoa, licorice, vanilla, lots of bourbon and some oak, followed by a long, moderately roasty-bitter, slightly earthy, a bit warming finish with a touch of oak and lots of bourbon. Medium to full body, almost oily mouthfeel, very soft carbonation. Lovely beer, quite intense, great balance, just totally round. Really good! teddybeer (4548) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 18, 2018
Bottle @ The Beer GerdenANZUShophunter (817) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2018
Dark brown color, off-white hea with short retention. Aroma has notes of molasses, Bourbon, chocolate and wood. Flavor is slightly sweet, good maltiness, bourbon and wooden notes. Dry final, wood and alcoholic aftertaste. Warm mouthfeel.
From bottle in tulip. Pours deep dark brown with thick tan, sustained head and aroma of choc malt, bourbon + soft sour & woody notes. Rich taste akin to an imp-stout with a zesty finish, a great beer experience PowY (1338) - AUSTRIA - JAN 29, 2018
375 ml bottle at Sander's place shared by Saeglopur, many thanks! Pours a nearly black, dark red-brown with a light brown head. In the aroma are loads of bourbon along with vanilla, nuts and roasted malt in the background. Really lovely bourbon forward smell. Full body with a soft carbonation with a light sweetness, a medium bitterness and some noticeable alcohol. Flavor of sweeter roasted malts and bourbon, brown sugar, raisins, caramel, cocoa, wood and some vanilla. Finishes with a nice roasty bitterness, a light residual sweetness and bourbon. Really nice brew with lovely bourbon notes which leaves you with a light warming feeling.

Tasty. Heavy and quite boozy, but still well balanced,with the bourbon barell dominant, but well integrated. Lovely, warming sipper.

Sampled from a 12.7 oz brown bottle, corked and caged. Deep brown colour with a fast fading beige head. Nose - vanilla, oak, chocolate, coffee, alcohol. Taste - rich chocolate, toffee, woody, whisky. Finishes toasty and oaky with lasting chocolate and coffee notes. Heavy bodied, but still quite smooth. A great ale. gramity (1711) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2018
Black pour with small dark tan head. Aroma of chocolate milk, caramel, bourbon, ripe fruit. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, caramel, molasses and bourbon. What a complex beer. Nice carbonation and creamy mouthfeel. Hints of coconut on the aroma as well. bulldogops (2885) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 20, 2018
Rating #2857 - 2018.01.20 - #RBAGWinter2018 - Pours a syrupy jet black with little head. Aroma is charcoal, molasses, black licorice and dark chocolate. Palate reveals some booze, some barrel character, some oaky vanilla molasses textures. This is unbelievably drinkable. Off with an absolute bang! Samuel214 (1719) - Örebro, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2018
Flaska från Beergium, vintage 2015(?). Näst intill kolsvart med en liten brunaktig ton, med liten krämbeige krona. Doft och smak av kola, bourbon, toffee, kandisocker, mörk malt och fatkaraktär. Fortfarande efter två år ligger bourbonen fortfarande i framkant, och fortfarande med tydlig fatkaraktär. Hur som väldigt smarrigt.
