Black, small tan head. Smell is sweet, pretty fudget somehow, some whisky. Body is decent, bit sharp, but not thin. Taste is fudge first, followed by something strangely bitter, and then a big dose of whisky. Licorice? Some CFS got accidented into it?

Taster at home, courtesy of Sander, big thanks. Black color, almost no head. Smells whisky, fudgy, marzipan, cinnamon, vanilla, bitter chocolate, sweet spices, very nice smell. Full body, light carbonation. Tastes of cinnamon, vanilla, bit boozy, fudgy, chocolate, light dried fruits, some raisins and figs, marzipan, subtle whisky. Finishes super balanced with a touch of booze and notes of sweet spices, figs and some bitter chocolate/vanilla. Very nice one, good to drink, bit boozy and bit heavy on the vanilla but overall very enjoyable 8,4,7, 3,16

Opaque colour, small beige head. Aroma has bourbon, vanilla and wood. Full-bodied. Soft with vanilla, chocolate, bourbon, lots of wood. Thinner in the finish. Interesting.

Can. Black pour. Aroma of green apple, whisky booze, red fruit, chocolate, caramel fudge and vanilla. Taste has green apple, caramel fudge, chocolate, rich vanilla, cherry, figs, dates and malt. Boozy finish. Has that typical kees green apple flavor, but it works and blends well with the rest. Very tasty.

0.33 l can from 'Speciaalbierpakket.nl'. Clear, very dark ruby to black with a beige layer. Sweetish-malty, gently roasty and slightly fruity aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, vanilla and some whisky. Quite sweet, malty, rather roasty-bitter, a little fruity taste of dark chocolate, coffee, hazelnut, some whisky and a touch of vanilla, followed by a long, fairly roasty-bitter, gently earthy and slightly warming finish. Full body, smooth and gently creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Lovely beer, quite intense but still nicely balanced with pleasant whisky flavours.

Can. Almost black. Pure chocolate, red fruit and whiksy in the aroma and flavor. Sweet, dried fruit, almost liquorish. Warming alcohol. Nice!
