2015 bottle. Pours a thick, oozy brown black, deep and foreboding, with nary a bit of head. Aroma blossoms with heavy toffee and caramel and oak shored up by a massive bourbon backbone. Taste starts with a burst of caramel and molasses, sweet as soft candy and almost as chewy, then grows a dark fruit middle, black cherry and fig and raisin, before the a licorice-tinted finish offers up massive waves of bourbon and oak. So much oak. Might be one of the biggest oak bombs I’ve tried, with a lengthy bitter, dry fade more woody and liquor-fueled than a frat boy. Alcohol remains bearable despite the ABV. Never thought it was possible to have too much oak, but this beer pushes my limit. Still, pretty damn enjoyable. snoworsummer (6503) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 3, 2017
From a bottle. Pours very dark brown with a creamy light brown head. Tastes like rich chocolate malt, smooth booze, ashy wood, and tobacco. Medium body and low carbonation. Smells like booze, chocolate malt, ashy wood, and tobacco. Michael27 (2439) - Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 24, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2017 Aus der Flasche getrunken (beim BrewDog-Shop in Ellon gekauft). Sieht aus, wie Altöl, schmeckt aber entscheiden besser....Der Bourbon kommt voll durch. sehr weich und markant. Lilja (3621) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 23, 2017
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Smak och doft av choklad, bourbon, vanilj, rom-russin, likörpralin. Bra balans, lagom sötma, viss syrlighet, fin beska. Riktigt gott! wombat23 (2185) - Texas, USA - JAN 14, 2017

Aroma: lots of bourbon with some dry mustiness of a traditional stout; Appearance: pitch black with thick tan head that dissipates almost immediately; Taste: follows nose - lots of sweet bourbon with some additional complexity; Palate: very heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: right on the edge of being too bourbony but settles on the right side.

375ml bottle. Black with short brown head. Aroma of dark fruits, baking chocolate, plenty of barrel character. Similar elements in the taste, drinkable, not too sweet. Nice stuff. Percy0103 (789) - MEXICO - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle, 375ml. A dark beer with minimal head. Deep aromas iof dried fruits and bourbon. Taste is quite bitter with fizzy carbonation and moderate astringency. Robust bodied, pdense and with a rich mouthfeel. Complex aftertaste full of dried fruits. Very impresive. Almost like an Imperial Stout. Sdaniel90 (1119) - Mexico City, MEXICO - JAN 5, 2017
Bottle, 375ml. Opaque dark brown, minimal brown head. Aromas of roasted malts, dark fruits, bourbon. molasses. Full bodied, soft carbonation. Thick and oily. Medium to heavy sweet, medium to heavy bitter. Rich roasted and fruity flavors into a fiery juicy finish. Astounding beer. Vignale (4204) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2017
Flaska från Craftbeer/Galatea. Massor av bourbon som verkligen dominerar smakbilden, men den funkar så bra med den massiva kroppen. Ger stora söta men så bra balanserade smaker av choklad och rom russin och vanilj. Riktigt gott.
