330 ml bottle with lot # "B543" bought at HK Brewcraft in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Looks: Clear deep Cola blackish brown colour with a thin layer of yeast sediments; Near zero head with residual soapy beige foam which fades in 3 seconds; Poor sticky lacing with zero carbonation.
Aroma: Very fragrant dark malt, with very strong Port wine, strong vanilla, strong oak-like barrel, strong cream, caramel, sticky toffee, strong cherries, sugar, strong spices, liquorices, strong biscuits, lemon and grass.
Taste: Strong sweet dark malt, with strong Bourbon, vanilla, strong oak barrels, strong cherry liquor, cream, dark chocolate, caramel, sticky toffee, floral, thick molasses, strong liquorices, spices, bread, lemon, strong bitter hops and grass.
Body: Full body. Very Slick palate.
Mouth Feel: Very good dark maltyness in a slightly thin but slick, not quite oily background. The Bourbon barrel comes in full force with strong liquor and nice smooth oak, surely helped by plenty of creamy vanilla and nice cherry liquor. Notable dark chocolate with strong caramel and silky toffee. Flowery with nice strong sweetness. Spicy bready with strong lemon to round. Nourishing and nice!
Hoppiness: Strong spices, lemon and grass in nose. Floral, spices, lemon and grass in taste; Bitterness - hops and liquorices - is strong for an abrupt, close to high astringent sweet-bitter dark malty finish.
After Taste: Fairly dry. Cherry liquor-ish sweet and quite bitter to mouth.
Comments: So they go all out with the Bourbon barrel, and I have to say the result is a pleasing Port wine aroma with charming cherry liquor taste, with lots of vanilla and nice oak in between. It's also even in body with a nice creamy strong sweetness, more like milk candy than milk shake. A pleasant surprise!
kolejny extrasa od Bena. Aromat: kokos, wanilia, mleczna czekolada, mleko w proszku, smak - bardzo słodkie, mleczno - czekoladowe, waniliowe, sporo miodu, likierowate, faje ciało, ale sumarycznie przesłodzone jak Dark Lordy, #teamcukrzyca i na dłuższą chwilę męczy

Bottle shared at a tasting at Yoav’s place. Opaque brown with brownish head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, vanilla, wood, roasted malt and chocolate. Sweet and sourish flavor, alcoholic with notes of vanilla, wood, bourbon, coffee and chocolate, sticky. Oily texture, full-bodied. Excellent. ATulloch (341) - Aberdeenshire, SCOTLAND - SEP 14, 2017
Bottle at home. Pours a deep black with little to no head. Aromas of prunes, sweet caramel, vanilla, bourbon, wood and slight burnt plastic. Flavour is intense sweet vanilla, wood, caramel a little bourbon. A nice oily mouthfeel. Too sweet but still enjoyable. Lonick (2537) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 11, 2017
Bottle @McHendos (Zoltan Tasting). Pours opaque black, tan head. Nose is bourbon, chocolate, sweet milk chocolate, big vanilla, slight coconut. Taste is more of the same but with the coconut and the sweetness of the vanilla coming out more. Big fruit/chocolate cake vibe going on. I do love a milk stout and this was tremendous.
