Picked up at Randall's in St. Louis. Pours pitch black. Lots and lots of oak. Also caramel burnt toast and roasted coffee. Nice bit a bit over the top. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 8, 2011

Copenhagen Beerfestival 2011. Pours black with a beige head and lacings. Quite sweet with some bitterness. Malty aromas of caramel and chocolate. Also aromas of bourbon and hints of cask wood and honey. Full bodied with a creamy mouthfeel. Soft carbonation. Long bourbony finish. VsXsV (4572) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle. Opaque, black liquid with tan head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon, coffee, chocolate. Really balanced. Light sweet taste with medium bitterness and lots of coffee and bourbon. Really good, thick body. Great, balanced beer. Can’t believe it’s not rated higher.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Bottle No. 49 out of 374 made. 10.4% ABV, 98 IBU. Pitch black colour, large to moderate tan head. Lovely aroma of bourbon cask, vanilla, coffee and chocolate. Excellent flavour, same elements as the aroma, but even more harmonious and well balanced.
