Plovmand (7977) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2009
Bottle. Pitch black body with a thick creamy brown head. A beauty! Aroma is very complex with notes of raisins, molasses, vanilla, oak, powder sugar and chocolate. Flavour is even more complex. Oak, chocolate, dark dried fruit, vanilla, sweet malt and some alcohol. Creamy body. Fantastic brew.

Tough to say this has an appearance. Black paint? Have had 2 occasions and consistant notes. Thick and rich. So packed in there the oak, bourbon, stout and alc all get smashed together and become very compacted. Id guess this would age for years and years. But could see all that thickness sticking together and making a blob. Stunning experience and one to share.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2009
08 Bottle. Poured a deep brown/black color with a 1/3 inch beige head that slowly receded to a thick layer and left some webby lacing. Aroma consists of vanilla, bourbon, oak, some chocolate, and a bit of alcohol. Sweet, smooth entry with some moderate chocolate and molasses leads into a strong bourbon booziness with some chalk, oak, and a bit of light, lingering roast on the finish. Low carbonation and decent mouthfeel. Overall, this was a solid beer, but it tends to be an example of barrel aging overshadowing the base beer, which I really like. I suppose I may try it again down the road, and I will see if my perception changes.

Defreni (3081) - Husum, DENMARK - APR 30, 2009
Flaske: God duft af bourbon. Klassisk bourbon impy, men dog meget lettere i kroppen. For en gang skyld fungerer det. Viscosity er dog ikke dkkende da den ikke er synderlig tykflydende. Men dejlig dejlig l.

Pinball (11981) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 11, 2016 pitch black, very large brown thick head. aroma of licorice, barley wineish, very faint sort of sourish, kinda nice, id like some roasted coffe added. flavor is super well balanced, licorice, vanilala, wooden aged, dry, very near perfect flavor. overall a must-try beer - this is real good stuff indeed. [7.4.9.4.18] re-rate 2016-03-12 bottle from kihoskh. pitch black, small brown head. 4 to 3. Super nice roasted malty aroma with a deep feel to it, molasses, licorice, brown sugar, very dry, us hops, coffee, wood -but only the nicer woody notes from wood, not sweet booze. 7 to 9 flavor is roasted malts, licorice, good hoppy balance, not too sweet not too dry, very nice flavor. unchanged 9. This is really a very refined black beer, barrelled imperial stout. lots of wood, but the bourbon is not too much. palate and overall stays. so we end up at 4.3. One of the best black beers ive tasted.

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - APR 25, 2009
(375 ml bottle (2008) via trade with WeeHeavySD, thanks Jon!) Pours very dark brown with an unexpectedly large head of about two fingers or so. Head recedes to about 1/4". Aroma of molasses and wood. Light weepy rings and spots of lacing that are quite persistent. Mouthfeel is smooth but a touch fizzy and light, almost airy feeling for a big stout-like beer. Lightly sticky on back end. Flavor of slightly burned molasses and wood with relatively understated bourbon. Lightly hot. A nice beer for sure but I think I prefer the regular as this seems to have a bit less of the nuance, complexity and richness of the brother beer.
