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. joergen (29216) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 29, 2009

Bottled. Deep quite much black colour, not much, but slight brown head. Aroma is alcohol, raisins, some vanilla, wood, dark fruits, Quite port/madeira wine like notes as well. Flavour is raisins, toffee, brutal plum, thick coffee, mild chocolate and vanilla. Totally brutal in flavour. Probably beats many things I’ve had for the flavour... This is heading for the top...

UPDATED: AUG 11, 2010 Bottle at home ... deep black ... medium tan head ...rich sweet meaty malt nose with a little whiskey ... big bourbon front... too much bourbon ... it domintaes way to much and distroys its balance... behind the bourbon is a decent rich roast malt. 3.7

CASK at BSF GBBF 2010 ... 2010 version ...deep black ... thin tan head ... meaty vanilla bourbon nose ... big roast malt ... soft toffee ... again too much bourbon 3.7
nice to see consistant scores... not so nice to see a bit too much bourbon in each version
Bottled, thanks cquiroga! Very black. Aroma of oak, vanilla and licorice. Sweet and tarry, full bodied. Extremely strong barrel character, but then everything in this beer is very strong, so it kind of matches. Molasses mixes with chocolate, oak and vanilla. Salty licorice finish. The barrel aging has improved it, and made the rough edges less noticable. madmitch76 (25568) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 28, 2012

Opaque black stout. Light palate, dry and a little soft. The barrelling dominates. Dry wood and the barest hint of vanilla. Sourish tangy dark malt. Warming dry finish. Nice enough but a little too wood dominated.
