A: Black with a mocha head.

S: Vanilla, coffee, chocolate, oak, plum, dark fruit in the nose.

T: Dark and slightly tart fruits come out first, followed by oak, vanilla, chocolate and coffee.

M: Full bodied and smooth.

O: Delicious! The tartness, though faint, is probably this beer's biggest flaw, but it's excellent better.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A: Pitch-black pour with a dense, very dark brown head. Nice legs. Head fades at a moderate pace. Lots of sticky thin streaks of lacing left behind. Great head retention.

S: Lots of big bourbon notes. Caramel, burnt marshmallows, toffee and charred wood. Quite sweet, lots of honey when swirled.

T: Bourbon up front with toffee, sweet caramel and oaky vanilla. Lots of honey too, specially initially. Wonderful chocolate and mild char notes. Bitter chocolate, a little char and even a little coffee and anise in the finish. Lots of drying charred oak in the lingering aftertaste. Long lingering ashy char for sure.

M: Pretty big and heavy. Nice and smooth.

O: Nice, better than I was expecting. Big bourbon barrel stout with honey, how can you go wrong? Bourbon isn't super strong like a BCBS but it's not completely muted either. Adds nice layers of flavors I think; complimentary. Definitely on the ashy side of a stout, something to watch out for if you dislike that style.

I never mention bitterness in my reviews, my bitterness taste buds are ridiculously under-
sensitive.

APPEARANCE : Pitch black on pour with dark brown hue. Head is mocha, more than medium sized on pour, goes back down at a leisurely pace leaving some tough looking lacing.

SMELL : First nose is coffee, chocolate and some smoke with a herbal hop side. Second nose pushes the hop profile aside and really amplifies on the mocha chocolate side. Some honey starts to come out. Third nose is all about the honey : black roasted honey. Very nice twist on the too often same-as-usual approach on the stout style.

TASTE : This stuff shines on the palate. The flavours are full and well layered : most of the roasted-malt-related tastes are toned down, giving much of the room to the wild honey and the bourbon barrel. Very well done.

MOUTHFEEL : Thick but not overpowering. Definitely what I want in this kind of stout. The carbonation makes everything easier to handle. I'm a big fan of this almost-syrupy texture in stouts and this brew nails it hands down.

OVERALL : Another very fine product from To Øl. Kudos as well to Omnipollo. I've got a case of 12 of these bad boys and damn am I glad I do. This is seriously good stuff. I don't understand the 86% rating this brew got. Since it's only stated in Danish on the bottle, maybe not everyone was aware that this was brewed with wild honey and aged in bourbon barrels? The honey side is definitely an interesting side of this brew. I'm really digging this.

Jet Black is gave a tar like appearance, though the feel was far from that. Thick light brown or khaki colored head held itself high above the rim.

The scent reminds me of a barrel aged stout, with notes of vanilla, coconut, espresso and and toffee.

The taste is so nice with huge vanilla at the front. Coconut and espresso sweetness support the chocolate and caramel malt end. It all melds well in very satisfying flavor throughout the sip.

I really liked this and found it to be very barrel aged like. Can't imagine how good this would be if they did just that.

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a totally opaque black color with a 3/4 inch bubbly light brown head that retains a good long while before eventually meandering down to an 1/8 inch head. Resilient lacing leaves a thick sheet of foam behind.

S- Has all the sweetness and oakiness that a barrel-aged stout should with plenty of dark roasted malt. Notes of vanilla, bourbon and chocolate.

T- Initial rush of charry malt, sweet vanilla and oak is followed by an onset of booze but then turns to a pleasant caramel aftertaste. Obviously, it's pretty complex but has just a bit more heat than I was hoping. Still, for over 11%, it's damn drinkable.

M- Slightly creamy and very viscous with medium-low carbonation and a full body.

O- Not among the best BA stouts I've had, but it has most of the qualities I look for in the style.
