Malzige Aromen von Vanille, leider mit wässrigem Hintergrund. Dunkel holzig, die Süße bleibt glücklicherweise in angenehmem Rahmen. Wenig herb, leider insgesamt auch nicht sonderlich aromatisch, Hat die Fasslagerung hier möglicherweise mehr Aromen entfernt als hinzugefügt? 11/10/9/9/11/9 Rasmus40 (20744) - Beder, Aarhus, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2015
Bottle @ fonefan tasting. Black with a light brown head. Aroma is sweet, roasted malt, chocolate and bourbon. Flavor is quite sweet and rather bitter. Sweet and rather bitter finish. Oily. 290815 HenrikSoegaard (14176) - Randers, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2015

At Danish Ratebeer Summer Gathering 2015 in Ulfborg. Day 2.
Black beer with a nice and lasting beige head. Roasted fruity aroma, caramel, figs, raisins, toffee notes, chocolate, licorice, some bitter hops. Malty chocolate flavor, caramel, toffee, raisins, licorice, warming alcohol, figs, some vanilla and brown sugar. Quite nice. Benzai (15613) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 29, 2015
Sampled at 8th Danish Ratebeer Gathering, Ulfborg 2015, day 2. Opaque pitch black color, average sized beige to light brown head. Aroma is malts, some alcohol, wood. Taste malts, sweeter than I had thought it would be, wood, bitter in the finish, some roast. Medium to full body, oily texture, suitable carbonation. Very solid.

alpha klaus is normally awesome, but barrel aging it makes it even better. same nice porter flavor with a slightly nutmeg flavor with a nice bourbon finish. sweet ending to a great beer. had a draft pour at dryhop. rxeight (3084) - Illinois, USA - OCT 18, 2014
Early 2012 batch. 112/423. Frankly, this is kinda crap. Astringent barrel. Ditch weed. BiiruBierBeer (1049) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 19, 2014
All heavy bourbon smell. Full bodied with very low carbonation. Taste is bourbon, dark chocolate, and booze. The alcohol brings a bit of heat with it to the palate. HonusWagner (2168) - Florida, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Legitimately awful, I don’t know how nobody else has mentioned how this beer completely sucks. Tasted like Dr. Pepper with sour warheads dropped into it, nothing like an imperial porter, body too thin, flavors flat as a board, just completely one-note and the only hint that this is barrel aged is a slightly metallic twinge. Yuck. Daniel719 (144) - Safety Harbor, Florida, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Pretty decent beer. Pours a dark brown color. Maybe a little black. It was dark. Not much of a smell and there was a little bit of head. You get the hops on the scent more than anything. Taste is more like a pale ale than a porter because they use so many hops. Very hoppy. You get chocolate up front and you can get the porter on the very back. It was definitely different from most porters. Overall pretty decent.
