The Last Tasting at Bruce’s palatial pad. Thanks to Paulio for this treat. Opaque dark black-brown beer, good tan head. Really nice barrel aged - chocolate nose. Palate is smooth, light and slightly airy. Gorgeous ’Bounty Bar’ chocolate and coconut. A mix of both the milk and dark chocolate versions. Dark malt tang and lovely mellow bourbon. Dark malt cream and a light touch of dark fruits that gradually resolve in to mostly cherry and blackcurrant. The chilli is there from the start but slowly builds to a mellow heat. Light finish with a medium chilli linger. Superb!

Bottle at Bruce’s in London - massive thanks to Paul for this guy. Pours black and thick like motor oil with a thick, tight brown cream head. Smells great, lots of rich chocolate, coconut, hints of torched wood. Medium to big sweet flavor with oily dark chocolate, moderate chili pepper, some slick coconut. Full bodied with average, creamy carbonation. Mellow warmth on the finish, restrained peppery heat, a bit of toffee and coconut, slightly syrupy chocolate. Rich, dynamic, balanced - wonderful beer.

Bottle shared at Bruce’s, huge thanks to Paulo for liberating this baby, 19/09/13. Pitch black with a thin dirty tan head that clears to a swirl atop the glass. Nose is dark roast malts, coconut shavings, brown sugar, dark toffee fudge, earthy cocoa notes, bourbon soaked wood. Taste comprises sweet bourbon notes, light cocoa, molasses, peppery, sugars, light spice, dark toffee fudge. Full bodied, fine carbonation, light booze in the finish. Great BA impy, easy drinking, balanced and the alcohol is well integrated.

Bottle shared by Samantha. Thanks! Pitch black with a tan head. Aroma of bourbon, chili pepper, coffee, and tons of chocolate. Really nice spice, whiskey, coconut, and vanilla. The flavor is pure coconut. Roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, and whiskey. A bit of booze, dark fruit, and chili pepper. Like chewing on shredded coconut.

Bottle via trade, shared at Bruce’s place. It pours jet black with a medium tan head. The nose is rich, roasty, tiffin cake, vanilla, spice, wood, mild acidity, green banana, chocolate cake and bounty bar. The taste is rich roast, bounty bar, chilli heat, chocolate, alcohol warmth, mild acidity, coconut, vanilla, fudge and toffee with a roasty, warming finish. Full body, fine carbonation and oily mouth-feel. Oily, big, rich and indulgent. The balance is incredible. A great melange of flavours. Delicious!

Don’t really like the base beer and don’t like the barrels used. But wow they did this particular batch right.
