BlazerT (988) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - MAR 20, 2017
Bottle. Sensoric. Pitch black with almost none, small, light brown head. Poor head retention and lacing. Moderate to light heavy roasted malts aroma - mainly coffee, dessert chocolate, cocoa. Moderate bourbon, vanilla notes, slightly oaky. Taste is moderately sweet and light to moderately bitter, light to moderate acidic (due to coffee). ABV is somehow well hidden just a slight warming down the throat. In overall hard to sum up, there is bourbon, roasted notes, dessert chocolate, slightly boozy. You can feel that these all do not play in the same game..... Unfortunately, but still really good brew. Not more than 4.0 definitely.

Bawelt (818) - Lyon, FRANCE - MAR 17, 2017
Nez : équilibre superbe et riche. Du chocolat, des fruits noirs (mûre et prune), des fruits plus rouges genre légères griottes. Des faux airs de porto. Reste relativement éthylique. Bouche sirupeuse, douce. Attaque très chocolatée, torréfaction assez franche mais assez douce pour ne pas être trop amère ou agressive. Le côté porto se retrouve. Finalement le bourbon de manière discrète juste en finale et équilibre parfaitement cette bière initialement trop sucrée et écoeurante.

Aarslew (47) - - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle from søernes ølbar. Pours pitch black with a tan head that disappears. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, vanilla, chocolate, bourbon sugary sweetness, and perhaps some smokey notes. Taste is bitter and smokey with a dark fruity sweetness. Not dessert sweet, but fruity, roast sweet.

coachd (746) - Missouri, USA - FEB 14, 2017
On tap at Side Project Cellar. Somehow, the coffee comes out more in the barrel aged version than the regular. Bourbon barrel is most present in the aftertaste. Lactose sweetness is replaced by bourbon barrel sweetness and oak. This was excellent.

From notes. Somehow this drinking session evaded my developments. Enjoyed at Doug’s house on October 28. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a lighter black/dark brown with a thin ring of light tan head that slowly fades without leaving any lace behind. The aroma is really strange. There is a strong grassy hop right up front that slowly works its way through to a light chocolate and caramel malt and a pretty heavy oak and light bourbon. It’s really interesting, but way too leafy and hoppy for me. The flavor is good. There is a lot of bourbon and chocolate. The oak offers a nice complexity, but then the leafy hops come rolling back through. It’s just not my jam. The mouth feel is light and watery with a softer carbonation and a lingeringly oaky bourbon chocolate on the finish. It’s pretty decent.

Bottle, received in a trade. Very dark, chestnut brown. Film and some bubbles of sticky, leggy, tan head. Nose has melted, dark chocolate. Brown sugar laden coffee. Vanilla pod. Sawn oak. Notes of prune and date. Bourbon and fudge. Smells pretty awesome. Taste is sweet, fudgy and chocolatey. Some vine fruit dryness. Any bitterness is woody and vinous. Silky mouthfeel. Some warmth. Right side of chewy. Vinous, fruit and nut chocolate, bitter finish. Lovely.
