neongolden (1860) - Linköping, Sweden/Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2017
(On tap @ Mikkeller and Friends, Copenhagen, May 11/17) Pours black with a tan head. Notes of dark chocolate, pretty rich sweeter dark malts with moderate to high roast, whiskey, peppery rye character, light vanilla, soft dried fruit and coffee notes, woody, with a finish that is nicely bitter, slightly burnt, lots of rye whiskey character, roasted, lingering chocolate as well, with a long aftertaste. Fairly full-bodied and oily with soft carbonation, bare touch of alcohol. Really nice rye BA stout, conveys the barrel character, I thought the roundness of the two bourbon variants were slightly more appealing but this is quite good.
