Bottle shared at Dangerous Bottleshare 10th Anniversary. Thanks to Aaron for bringing this! Been looking forward to this like a child looks forward to unwrapping the big hard christmas present under the good ol tree. Ya know. Pours pitch black with a medium brown head. Aromas of coffee, vanilla, dark fruits, coconut, bourbon, cinnamon, roast, dark and light chocolate. Taste is subtle green fruity coffee, vanilla, cinnamon, subtle coconut, dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dates, molasses, roast, light licorice, oak, dry wood. God damn, this is good! Best of the night.

Bottle, many thanks anstei! Black color with beige head. Aroma is coffee, bourbon, super intense, but also balanced. Taste is bourbon, coffee, chocolate. Super smooth mouthfeel with fine-bubbled carbonation. Hard to improve on this one, it's worth all the praise!

Bottle. Aroma is indeed bourbon barrel aged Vietnamese Speedway. Slightly burnt, but also super balanced, with great intensity and flavours. An outstanding beer which deserves all the praise. Very close to perfection.

Bottle from one of my IP trades with rischiesd, massive thanks! Pours a pitch black color and a brown head with little retention. Aroma's: roasted, umami, wood, bourbon, vanilla, some chocolate and coffee. Retronasal it's sweetish, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, a bit dark fruit. Flavor is moderate to heavy sweet, chocolatey, light roasty, bourbon, just delicious. Full bodied. Not too boozy. Long finish, with some wood, dark chocolate, roast, light bitterness. Superb!

75cl Bottle, massive thanks for sharing Kermis! Black colour, beige head. Aroma of perfect barrel ageing, soft bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, smooth coffee well-integrated in the beer, very fruity, roast, fudge. Flavour is sweet, lovely deep roast, soft smooth coffee, oak, vanilla, subtle bourbon, chocolate, fudge, bitter finish. Full bodied, slick. Are you paying attention green apple-loving Dutch brewers? This is how you barrel age a beer.
