Bottle from the De Molen beer shop in Bodegraven.
From a bottle into a snifter
Bottled 17 September 2013
Drank next to the rum version.
APPEARANCE: Black pour on this one. Thick and black. This is probably the blackest beer I've seen come out of The Windmill. A small, cascading, dark tan wisp forms atop a jet black body with no carbonation. The film vanishes quickly. A ring remains until the end but leaves no lacing down the glass. Black and black, but the head isn't all that interesting. The rum version was more attractive here. Still, love the blackness.
SMELL: Good bourbon barrel. Oak, vanilla, sweet cream, dark chocolate and roasted grains. A touch of char in there, but the pure baker's chocolate, sweet vanilla and bourbon barrels are very good. Bold and enticing.
TASTE: Lots of bourbon barrel with oak and sweet caramel up front. More barrel at the swallow, with sweet oak, milk chocolate and vanilla cream sweetness at the finish. Big aftertaste of alcohol, bourbon, bitter dark chocolate and some roasted, charred malts. Pretty good, with some nice barrel and burnt, bitter flavors. Perhaps a touch too burnt, but nothing off-putting.
PALATE: Medium body and lower levels of carbonation. Almost flat actually. Silky smooth on the palate, goes down smooth and finishes quite sticky. Needs a touch more carbonation, but silky with minimal heat. Rum was better here.
OVERALL: This was better than the Rum version. Much better. Good bourbon barrel and I appreciate the overly black body on this one, but the harsh char and bitterness became tiresome as the glass emptied, and the flat carbonation didn't help. An interesting stout, but not one of their best.
