2007 Bottle samples June 2009. Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Imediately the aroma is just huge. Maybe I liked this one extra because I had it following a bunch of sours and it was a great change. I think it would be great anytime. Malty goodness, mellow, some wood, some bourbon, vanilla, toffee. Still a bit hot after two years. Crazy good.

Vintage 2008 Strong aroams of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts. Had a fluffy foamy head, tan and quite noticable. Tasted wonderful, with bourbon, roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla. Was light, airy, fluffy in the mouthfeel. Really amazing.

Had on tap at Lost Abbey with DuffmanSW and mspindler for my birthday. This was a very good beer. It was very similar to angel share brandy barrel but a little more bitter on the finish. It was easier to drink and a little more dry. I think I would prefer this over the angel share.

Bottle at Nrrebro Bryghus. Pouring pitch black with a dense creamy dark brown head. Vinous aroma with notes of raisins, prunes, vanilla, malt and brown sugar. It has a great complex flavour of prunes, plumes, wood, malt, vanilla and lots of bourbon. Lovely!

Review entered to celebrate my 2100th US rating. Bottled at the brewery. A pitch black beer with a brown head. The aroma is sweet malty iwth notes of roasted malt, bourbon, and bread. The falvor is sweet malty with notes of roasted malt, bourbon, and a bit of acicity from the wood, leading to a dry roasetd, bitter, and alcoholic finish. The alcohol tickles the tongue in the aftermath.

I am glad I got to try this beer. Thanks Deniz. It pours very black and dark with a nice dark head on it. The smell/nose is roast, coffee, chocolate, dark fruit. The mouthfeel is pretty bold. Medium almost heavy coating. This beer is damn good.

Sample portion. A rare treat that did not disappoint. Pours dark brown, opaque, with a healthy brown head. Flavor is dark chocolate, molasses, coffee, maybe some bourbon essence. Palate is really interesting, evolving from soft and thinner than expected, to rolling soft carbonation, to a thicker, lingering finish. Flavor is a really nice cocoa powder vanilla blend initially, which rides a wave of carbonation towards complex roastiness, bittersweet chocolate and molasses. Finishes downright full of flavor, full of layered chocolate-mocha and roasts. Excellent, I hope to have a whole bottle to myself soon.

Black with a medium deep beige head. Sweet aroma with heavy roasted malty notes, ripe fruits and caramel notes. Flavour had wood, vanilla, bourbon heavy roasted malt and hints off coffee and chokolate .fantastic balance though very sweet.
