Embrouille (2844) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 26, 2009
Bottled 375ml. Vintage 2009. It pours a very dark beer with no head. Almonds, alcohol, pralines, a lot of plums, raisins, faint acetone, Shōchū, walnut and vanilla in the nose. A lot of Shōchū and walnut showing up in the taste. Sweet. Full bodied. Almonds and acetone sneaking in. No carbonation. Licorice, mint, heather and walnut in the finish which is very alcoholic. Rather dissapointing. I didnt enjoy this beer that much.

2008 bottle. Pours a black color with a medium sized brown head. Aroma of bourbon, malts, and chocolate cherry. Taste of chocolate malt, cherry, bourbon, and alcohol. Very nice and rich.

Dedollewaitor (15905) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 21, 2009
Bottle @ HJ Hansen, Odense. Pours black with small bubbles on top. Nose is sweet of bourbon and roast. Lots of vanilla and oak. Low carbonation. A bit warm and slick. Taste is bourbon, coffee, vanilla and caramel. A barrel version that really works. Enjoying every sip of this complex masterpiece. Thank you God!

Black Pour with a small tan head. Aroma is dark bourbon, vanilla, woody and sugary. Strong dark burnt caramel Malt character with some sweetness, loads of bourbon overtones and booziness. Powerful, Decadent, Thick creamy mouthfeel. a dry vanilla sweetness at the finish. Grandiose

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - OCT 15, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 7, 2010 Black massive pour with a very small brown head. Aroma hige amounts of bourbon and vanilla with every dark sugar facet covered. Imperial porter with huge amounts of sweetness- reminds me of LA Angels Share but more heavily malt-oriented and a bit less sweet. Flavor is quite similar to the nose with dark fruit, caramel, molasses, and brown sugar coming though powerfully. Palate is rich, thick and amazing. Velvety and smooth.

beernbourbon (1586) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Tap, at The Publican. Pour is total blackness with a very thin/ non-existent brown head. Aroma is simply wonderful: roasted malt, dark fruits, plum, light spiciness, coconut, vanilla, wood, bourbon, and very light alcohol. it smells way too good! Flavor is vanilla, fruit, wood, light bourbon, very creamy chocolate, smooth coffee, and a lightly peppery/ alcohol finish. Just amazing.

madsberg (11655) - Sborg, DENMARK - OCT 7, 2009
Bottled. Almost black coloured. Fluffy light brown head. Aroma of chocolate, vanilla, ripe fruits and some dryness. Flavour is full of chocolate and spice. Bourbon barrel definately notable. Coffee, caramel and a somewhat syrupy touch as well. Medium to full bodied. Dry sweet and spiced finish. Has a light bitter touch and a light alcholbite on palate and lips. ABV almost not notable.

Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Poured thick and viscous out of the bottle. The color was almost black with brown highlights sneaking out. A short ring of brown foam appeared. No lacing to speak of. The aroma was boozy, chocolate, malts and some vanilla. The flavor was chocolate, bourbon and vanilla with a bit of a hop bite towards the end. Full bodied mouthfeel. A sipper. Great beer, but Im glad I shared the bottle as I think drinking this on my own would have been a tad laborious.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 5, 2009
06 vintage on draft at Resurrection Alehouse. Pours jet black, very little mocha head. Aroma is dominated by bourbon, with only hints of caramel and chocolate coming though. Taste is very boozy, with a rich chocolate and coffee finish. While you could still taste the alcohol, this was strangely incredibly smooth. I had to spread this out over the whole meal as it wasnt all that drinkable. As much as I love Old Viscosity, this didnt quite do it for me, and I may be in the minority in saying that Old Vis is better.
