ewestern (257) - Ohio, USA - JUN 14, 2011
Wonderful aroma of malts with a nice oak and bourbon blanket to it. Flavor is mostly roasted malts in the form of dark chocolate with some hints of coffee. Smooth and soft with an alcohol bite and bitterness at the end.

Egész lényéből elegancia, sejtelmesség, fennkölt, emelkedett hangulat sugárzik, kezdve az éjfekete, olajos testére telepedő krémes kávéhabjától vaníliás, mogyorókrémes, diós illatain keresztül, egészen a bársonyos, vaníliás, fahordós ízjegyekig, melyek az érlelés jótékony velejárói. Igazán különleges aromákkal bír, csonthéjas termések puha, süteménytésztás, aranygaluskás, mogyorókávés, mákostésztás, parfümös illathalmaz kenődik szét a levegőben. Mély, strukturált szerkezet ölt testet, prémium ízjegyek formálódnak, vaníliás, kókuszos, kávés, mandulás, bourbon-ös karakter indul útjára, sötét elemek járják táncukat méltóságteljesen, megközelíthetetlen magasztosságban, megfejthetetlen összetettségben. Ízletes, nagyívű, kivételes főzet, lenyűgöző american strong ale.

Bottle, couldn’t find the bottling date. Poured to a snifter. Aroma: vanilla, chocolate, some raisins, soy sauce. Appearance: pours jet black. Cloudy, with minimal unstable head. Taste: a lot is going on out here! Heavy sweetness, medium bitterness. Dark chocolate with vanilla infused. A chocolate-vanilla liqeur. Impressive! Very full bodied. Thick, sticky. Flat carbonation, however seems not to be so (because of the high voltage of alcohol). Very long finish, just like after drinking a liqeur. This is one of the best things I’ve drunk in my life.

ardeo (222) - Flémalle, BELGIUM - NOV 20, 2016
La męme bouteille de 37,5 cl ! A l’ouverture, un énorme parfum de bourbon puis apparaissent au nez d’autres odeurs de raisin, de caramel, de chocolat et encore l’alcool. En bouche, il y a une explosion de bourbon avec des notes de dattes, de fruits noirs, de chocolat, de café et TOUT ! La chaleur de l’alcool persiste ainsi que les saveurs précitées. Je n’invente rien, bien sűr mais c’est un MUST pour moi et Sophie aussi avec qui j’ai partagé le breuvage.

Vom Fass bei Stone in Berlin. Schönes Johannisbeer Aroma. Kokos und Salbei. Weich und total rund! Rum und Rotwein im Antrunk. Röstmalz. Gewürze. Weich und wunderbar abgelagert. Ein Traum!

Bottle from 2009 shared by alexsdad06 pour opaque dark brown to black with minimal tan head. Nose Bourbon, boozy, raisin, molasses, and light off. Taste flavors seem thin up front with thick mouth feel, weird. More raisin, and caramel in the aftertaste. Likely much better fresher.

anstei (1365) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle, bought at Erzbierschof about a year ago, says "vintage 2013 b" on the shoulder. Very, very strong bourbon barrel throughout. There probably *is* an American Strong Ale hiding behind that, but it’s hard to tell. And so there is not much more to say, except maybe low carbonation, boozy, etc. Nice, but rather one-dimensional.
