neongolden (2269) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2017
(Bottle pour @ Himmeriget, Copenhagen, Dec 15/17) Motor oil pour with no head. Aroma of rich syrupy dark malt, vanilla, chocolate fudge, rich whiskey, dark fruit and light fortified wine, semi-woody. Flavour is sweet and unctuous, dark toffee malt, sweet whiskey, touch or maple maybe, soft and plush, fair amount of dark fruit, port, stewed plums, rich and almost buttery oak, deep long finish with the barrels and thick syrupy malt all riding out into the sunset. Alcohol is well disguised. Thick viscous body with very low carb. Luxurious sort of brew, it's definitely sweet but it feels fitting rather than cloying. Was fine with a small pour but it's perfect to swirl in a snifter and think over.

Inbreak (7154) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2017
16.12.2017, 0,75l bottle sampled @ Himmeriget:
Tiny brown shortlasting head, thick black pour. Aroma is slightly sweet sour-ish mineraly, dark malts, oak, raisins, minerals, fruit stones, dark fruits, bourbon, grass, bark, burnt toast, bitter chocolate, dates. Taste is sweet sour-ish fruity, dark sugar, raisins, dark malts, oak, minerals, dates, bourbon, vanilla, butterscotch, sour dark fruits, even more dark sugar, bark, bitter chocolate. Medium to longlasting bitterness, sweet syrupy and slightly dry boozy mouthfeel. Nice, but in general a bit too sweet. A small sample is more than enough.

jandd1983 (4823) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - OCT 15, 2017
Sampled at the 2017 Beer Fest. It poured a black color with a tan head. The aroma was of bourbon, chocolate, wood and roast. The taste was similar to the aroma with more bourbon, chocolate, wood, roast, some vanilla and a medium to heavy carbonation with a wood aftertaste. Good stuff.

JAXSON (612) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 26, 2017
Poured as part of a "Derivation flight" with blends 1-7 including Double Barrel (sans blend 5). Thick black, no carbonation. Nose is heavy malt, super sweet, with some faint red berries that weren’t there with the first couple blends. Mouth thick and sweet, of course. Some red berries here (port barrel?). Nicely balanced, I’m thinking some kind of dark chocolate raspberry cake. Still pretty huge and brash though.

joeneugs (6372) - Livermore, California, USA - FEB 9, 2017
Bottle pour at RB Best. It pours black with no head. The aroma has rich coffee, fudge and alcohol. The flavor has some strong vinous wine notes, coffee, wood and rich dark chocolate. Very oily on the palate with mouthwatering wine-like acidity. Very low carbonation. Almost completely still. A real treat.
