Orange wax 2018. Black and oily with no head. Aroma and flavour start with earthy mushrooms, coconut and soy sauce. Later there's more and more sweet whisky. Full and oily. Finish has some red fruit port notes.

Bottle at Dangerous Bottleshares WHLZBRZ-edition. Pours pitch black with a small mocha head. Aroma is amazingly big and rich, huge roast, vanilla, fudge, richest dark chocolate I’ve ever smelled from a stout, some dark sweet fruits, burned wood. Taste is hugeeee, roasty, strong rich dry dark chocolate, vanilla, fudge, prunes, dates, coffee, woody finish. Perfect bourbon stout for sure.

Bottle shared by Wickedestman, many thanks! Gold wax. Pitch black with faint, brown head. Rich cocoa with loads of bourbon, oak and vanilla. Packs a massive punch but remains super delicate with balanced sweetness. A battle of massive bourbon and smooth chocolate that somehow both wins. Great beer!

Bottle, orange wax, 2018. Pours pitch black. Aroma is marshmallows, green peppers, sugar, caramel. Body is heavy and strong, boozy, quite fruity actually, caramel and nuts and barrel. Too much sugar and marshmallows, and still not as great as Rye BA Vietnamese Speedway. Very good, though.

Bottle at bumba. Aroma of red fruit, vanilla, caramel fudge and bourbon. Taste has cherry, rich vanilla, caramel fudge, oak, molasses and a long finish. Lives up to the hype, amazing.
