Appearance of this beer is probably the best thing it has going for it, with a thick mocha head sitting on pure obsidian.

The smell is vanilla ice cream, banana peel, alcohol and dark chocolate; maybe a hint of Bourbon, but nothing like I anticipated.

Charred oak, alcohol, dark chocolate, roasted malts in the taste, with an intense, medicinal, bitter after-taste - like that first spoon of cough syrup your parents shoved in your mouth as an eight year old. Also: ASTRINGENCY.

This is a sipper, though I'm not sure whether that's because of the high ABV or simply because it's not very good.

330ml bottle from Saveur Biere. Milk chocolate, coffee, oak, vanilla, maple syrup, and on top of all that a generous amount of bourbon goodness. An amazing experience.

Looks and smells like a nice big crema long black coffee, slight toasty wheat characteristics with a hint of bourbon and spices.

Tastes like Kopi Luwak/Robusta coffee, chocolate and some sweet molasses malts. If you're a coffee drinker, you can really tell it's Robusta (low altitude coffee) it's got some toffee tones going on and the bourbon oakiness just lingers.

The syrypy mouthfeel is balanced out by the delicate spiciness from the bourbon. Bridging the gap between brewer and barista, this beer is the perfect combination for those who enjoy fine coffee, beer and bourbon equally!

Drank this with Mikkel sitting 5 feet from me on the TG patio at their EPIC bottle share. Mikkel brought this as well as BA Vanilla Shake....both were out of this world!! Tons of Burbon but ultra smooth!!!

I'm fairly certain that I bought this in May 2011 at Geers. Batch #462, Brygge 191009, Best Fore 191014. Poured into DFH chalice.

A - Looks great. Dark, black pour. Thick dark-brown head forms and sticks to the side of the glass. I want to drink this badly at this point.

S - Fudge, vanilla, slight sweetness and a lot of wood. The previous sentence appears appealing, but it really isn't. I didn't like the aroma much. Too subtle favorable aromas and too much woody oddness.

T - Dark malts, booze, chocolate/coffee/bourbon. Coffee is subdued. Burnt oak/wood finish. There is certainly a noticeable level of alcohol present, which is a turnoff with the rest of the flavors. Finish is slightly dry.

M - Nearly perfect. Great body, good level of moderate carbonation. I couldn't ask for much more.

O - Something in both the flavor and smell really bother me. The rest is nice. The beer is just too hot at 2 years old and just doesn't do it for me. I really expect more out of the flavors in a BA RIS. I will not seek this one out again, at least from this batch.

Aged 3.5 years.
Pours black with a very dark tan head.
Nose shows coffee, bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malt, coconut and cocoa. Lovely.
Bold flavours. Lots of roasted malt and coffee along with bourbon and soft oak. A fair bit of booze, but not aggressive or sharp. Pretty full-on.
Carbonation is almost non-existent. Needs a creamier mouthfeel.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a small bubbly head with minimal retention and no lacing. Aroma is dominated by bourbon notes with light traces lactose. Taste is quite heavy on the bourbon with small traces lactose and some black chocolate; coffee is almost not perceptible and the end results are too one-dimensional. Body is full with will rounded texture with very low carbonation and not too much apparent alcohol. While this is still enjoyable it is but a pale copy of its un-barrel cousin.

Drank from my Duvel tulip

Batch 462, Brygge 191009

A - Absolutely no light getting through this one and pours as Black as night, with a two fingerd tanned head that reduces to a thick film and laces.

S - Heavy bourbon aromas, with some beef extract a little expresso also.

T - Some nice balanced sweetness up front followed by some heavy molassis, with hints of vanilla. nice smoky flavour before a deep expresso finish that is boozy with a little Bourbon.

M - Full and low carbonation and quite smooth.

O - A little disappointed not to have more Bourbon in the flavour but not the array of flavours on offer. Could be a little less sticky and better balanced.

Bottle Duex of the Breakfast Geek Weasel tasting.

Pours into a snifter.

Identical appearance to the regular Weasel. Dark, one finger tan foam etc.

Nose is quite different. Lots of bourbon on the nose in the distance the base beers can be identified.

Taste is not what I expected after the nose. It's the Weasel with a subtle bourbon and vanilla flavor. A bit more heat on this one.

Mouthfeel very much like the Weasel as well. Except that it has a slightly lighter body.

This on is my favorite. It fantastic, it's excellent. The big bourbon nose, the surprise of the subtle flavors... it's like a littl beer adventure. GET IT WHEN YOU CAN!
