2 finger off-white head.
Close to pitch black beer.FunkyF (1439) - Örebro, SWEDEN - NOV 25, 2017
Aroma is maltbread, prunes, wooden barrel, slight toffee, red wine vinegar, tobacco and a hint of dates.
Taste is coffee, dark chocolate, raisins and liquor.
Mouthfeel is quite soft with a medium-thin body. Low carbonation. Medium, passive bitterness.
Overall: I had pretty high hopes for some reason, even though this is my first beer from this brewery. The tastenotes reveal themselves a lot more as the beer warms up but still not good enough. Small amount of actual bourbon-flavoured alcohol, more ethanol than anything else. I expected a big, tasty beast at 12% ABV but it's rather hollow. OK, but not much else.

Bottled, from Systembolaget. Dark brown, small head. Licorice with evident bourbony oak notes up front. Relatively dry with medium-full body and rather clean mouthfeel. Licorice with notes of fudge, coffee and bourbony vanilla. Peppery warming finish. Pleasant flavours, but the malt profile is too clean/hard. OminouSC2 (1006) - Mora, SWEDEN - NOV 16, 2017
Dark brown color, small brown head. Mellow aromas of roasted malt, vanilla, bourbon and chocolate. Taste of molasses, bourbon, oak, peat and chocolate. Slight tart and roasted finish. SirLimpsalot (4950) - SWEDEN - NOV 10, 2017
@ Stordirren 17-11-04: Tydlig bourbonton men även lite stickande, lite kemisk ton. Diskreta toner av kaffe och choklad.
