Wow...thanks kbudd. 2014 Fucking dark fruits, soy, rubber, some middling sourness, but caramel and alcohol are king here. Likewise with the aroma, alcohol and caramel are still king, mace, licorice, and soy round it out. Brilliant.

Rating #2860 2018.01.20 - #RBAGWinter2018 - Pours a jet black, some tan foam. Aroma is roast espresso, molasses, vanilla, bourbon, booze. Palate is more booze, oaky vanilla, molasses, earth. Had this on a couple of occasions (now 2014, and 2016 vintages). Nice.

Drago7 (984) - Warsaw, POLAND - JAN 8, 2018
Z: mieszanka bourbonu i risa. Mocniejsza beczała (wanilia, kokos) nad czekolodowo-wisniowy butami. S: gęste, kokosowo-bourbonowe, dalej wanilia, slodycz, gruba intensywność. Finisz lekko kwaskowy wchodzi w wanilię z kokos, lekkie tanicznosc migdały i orzeszki nerkowca? Takie slodko-taniczne. Momentami niesamowicie waniliowo-kokosowo-czekoladowe.

Butelka. Barwa ciemno brunatna. Brak piany. Aromat powala. Mega bourbon, czekolada, migdaly, praliny. W smaku podobnie. Świetna beczka. Długie posmaki. Konsystencja odziwo niewysoka lepka. Alkohol w aromacie. W smaku świetnie ukryty. Top topów.

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2018 2015. Kurde, fajne piwesio. Cudowne belgijskie praliny, beczka po bourbonie w najlepszym wydaniu. Masa słodyczy, chociaż całkiem sporo alko, ale bym nie powiedział, że 20%. Masa czekolady, ciemnych owoców, migdałów, suszone śliwki. Cudowne piwo.

tomekk1978 (1503) - Z±bki, POLAND - JAN 8, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 8, 2018 Aromat wyrazna beczka, alko, czekolada. Super. Wygląd adekwatny do procentów. W symie nie ma się czego czepiać bo przy takiej mocy tridno oczekiwać wielkiek piany. W smaku mega słodycz, praliny, wanilia, alko. Alkohol na finiszu ostry, ale przyjemnie rozgrzewa przelyk. Trochę zbyt wytrawna końcówka, jednak to kawał piwa.

neongolden (2009) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2018
(2016 bottle pour @ MBCC 2017 Yellow Session, Copenhagen) Pours nearly black with a tan head. Notes of massively sweet molasses, caramel, chocolate, vanilla, moderate bourbon, slightly burnt wood, soft roast, touch fruity, decently boozy, sweet sweet sweet. Finish is semi-sweet with lingering caramel, barrel and booze. Full bodied, thick and viscous with soft carbonation. Truly feels like diabetes in a glass. To be fair the flavours are nice and the concentration impressive, and while the alcohol isn't totally disguised, it is commendably minimized given the ABV. But the saccharine nature makes it tough to drink more than a couple of sips of, perhaps in part because of sampling before noon.

Stoned99 (1704) - St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 27, 2017
750ml bottle shared with friends last Friday for my birthday. 2014 bottle. Aroma: strong alcohol, licorice, molasses. App: dark brown, no head. Taste and palate: full body, liquoreux, light acidity with really strong alcohol burning finish. Overall: good but so strong! A bit too much for me. Burns quite a lot after each sip. Closer to a digestive than a beer for me. Good.

punkska101 (2194) - Chambly, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 22, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 23, 2017 Bottle shared by Alex A: licorice, alcohol, figs, bourbon, light chocolate. App: pitch black no head. T/p: full body with sweet finish of average long duration. Soft to moderate carbonation. O: this is more a digestive than a beer, boy this is strong. It's a good thing we shared it. The bourbon flavour are bold.
