No head; pours like old motor oil draining. Alcohol, higher alcohols, musk, Bourbon. Sweet, roast, smoked, vanilla, Bourbon, whilst finish is chocolate bomb. Heat, chili, near solid food. Insane. In price.
From bottle at Ulfborg tasting 2019/06. Black color with beige brown head. Malty aroma light roasted, cocoa, caramel, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, light sweet dark dried fruits, light coffee, light alcoholic. Moderate to heavy sweet and moderate bitter. Full silky sticky body with soft carbonation.
Bottle at J&Cs Semi White Whale tasting. My #2000 and for that I break the chain of just ticking :D . While not getting as enthusiastic as before by Barrel Age Stouts, this one was a masterpiece among other great beers of the day. Thick velvet, black body with a tan brown head- Silky, smooth mouthfeel. Heavy sweet chocolate aroma, almost fudge like, toffee, vanilla, bourbon. Complex but completely balanced taste, hides the 15% very well. Lots of chocolate again like liquid chocolate fudge, bourbon without even being slightest boozy, vanilla some coconut and licorice notes. Amazing beer.
Lepsze niz 2017, wiecej ciala, wiecej beczki, nieco tez stety czy niestety destylatu. Ryli klasa. Czekolada. Orzechy. Ale beczka dominuje. Slodziak. Ale solidnie nutki utlenienia tez, nie wiem jak to mozliwe. Za to fajnego, pumperniklowego. 4.4-
Thnx to Bryan ! Pours intensely black , tiny dark ring of head. Smell is rich, bit boozy, bourbon, oak, fairly complex, small notes of vanilla. Taste is full, intense, warm ( bit boozy ) , bourbon, intense roastyness, complex dark malts, vanilla, chocolate; very mild coffee. Mild ashy ( not smokey ! ) very nice indeed !
