Bottle, courtesy of Matt. Pours pitch black with a frothy tan head. Chocolate, rich chocolate ganache, cocoa powder, deep gorgeous vanilla, bourbon, toasted oak, sweet fruit cake, cherry liqueur, lingering bourbon. Good thick oily body. A masterpiece.
At the source. Pours a pitch black colour and a brown head with a small ring retention. Aroma's: big vanilla, sweet chocolate, bourbon. Retronasal: bourbon, alcohol, vanilla,oak, sweet. Flavour is heavy sweet and somewhat alcoholic. Strong alcohol feel. Full bodied. Long finish.
Never thought I'd get the chance. All the rumours are true, and it held up magnificently. Tons of vanilla, and so ridiculously smooth. Heavy, rich and soft, alcohol hides amazingly well. Bourbon and vanilla work magically together.

Taste is huge vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate, malt, subtle roast, burned wood, toast, booze, caramel.
Always an enormous pleasure. Thick, boozy and lotd of bourbon. Chocolatey malts pair excellently with bags of soft vanilla. This is one of the good bottles, and it's perfectly balanced between vanilla and stout. Soft, sweet and very very rich.
