Urbain shared BD 5, 6, 9, 10 next to each other. Shit man! Pour is jet black and completely opaque with a tan head and tight bubbles. The nose is huge, a fair bit of roasted malt and light peat notes, a bunch of bitter chocolate with whiskey taking over. Huge barrel component in this one extremely well done and interesting. The taste is rich and syrupy. Light earthy peat notes, some chocolate cherry syrup as whiskey again takes over and dominates behind. There is some light sour cherry, akin to sherry in there. There is a lingering roasted malt flavor that sits with the heat for a while on the palate with a full body, viscous and thick. A little heavy and chalky with a high carbonation and dry finish. Extremely complex with a lot going on, interesting take as it was intended to show more spirit qualities and does it very well.
