Ungstrup (37655) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2010
Bottled. A pitch black beer with a dark brown head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, over ripe fruits as well as lighter notes of bourbon. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, bourbon, late summer fruits that are very sweet, and malt, leading to a dry fruity finish. The alcohol is a bit too pronounced for my taste. Thanks KimJohansen for sharing.

A: The beer pours almost black in color with a finger of tan head. S: When the first thing you smell is butter, you’re rarely in for anything good. Lots of butter, a bit of roast and bourbon, a touch of vanilla, and some sourness. Not sure whether that’s vinegar or just too much booze. T: The flavor is much the same. Heavy on the butter with a more pronounced sourness and even more booze. Light bourbon and vanilla flavors with lots of roast and oak, some coffee is also there. M: Medium bodied with very low carbonation. O: This was a nice contribution to the dump bucket.

Tmoney99 (14494) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Bottle hinged top from River’s Bend. Poured a dark brown color with a moderate frothy brown head that mostly lasted and produced sticky legs and good lacing. Good dark chocolate malt and sweet woody bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a creamy texture. Complex dark chocolate stout flavor with a smooth bourbon woody bittersweet finish of long duration. Very well balanced barrel stout.

2.5
crossovert (12934) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 16, 2011
"Czar Brew" 650ml brow twist-off gold waxed bottle. 2009 vintage. The label proclaims "Lager". Talk about the most bizarre packaging, Sprecher might want to fire whoever is doing this. It pours a dense black with a foamy tan head. The head recedes rather quickly and leaves some mild lacing. The smell is thick with bourbon, super thick with it. It is big and sweet with notes of caramel and vanilla and underneath that chocolatey, roasty stout. The flavor is big and bourbonny. It is roasty and alcoholic. It has a tanginess to it that is hard to pinpoint, like very sweet raisins, perhaps an infection. It was great until I tasted it, I am pretty sure something sneaked its way into he barrels.
