Poured a black body with minimal head and no lace. Vanilla, boozy aroma with hints of dark fruits. Boozy body with boozy vanilla and dark cherry tastes with dry finish and great finish.

its the not barrel version taken to the next level. while the coffee is less intense than it was in the normal version, it is worthily sacrificed on the altar of mouthfeel. the barrel unites the two stouts blended here where perhaps they were a bit disjointed before, and the vanilla and char elements from the barrel marry perfectly into the stout, my only critique is that it seems to add a little hotness to the finish, warming alcohol on the swallow, but the body it gives, and the softness in the carbonation more than make up for it. like the regular one, i would have loved to see a bit more coffee in this, being the special kopi stuff, but this is a beautiful and highly refined massive stout, as good as i expect from mikkeller, but not quite so unique as his brunch. layers of licorice and tobacco and dark chocolate all weave together, its complex but somehow simple for what it is too, just an excellent stout by all counts. a little pricey at 18 or 19 bucks, but theres not much on the market to compare to it, so worth a try if this is your cup of tea without question.

Thanks a ton Matt for the bottle.

A- 500ml bottle into a tulip with a midnight sky body and a one finger very deep nutty brown head. Cap makes it to a cm high with a thin foamy texture and fair retention. Nothing remains and lacing is rare.

S- A very smoothed out Bourbon barrel leads things off nicely and leads into great coffee and chocolate notes. The barrel brings a lot of that old oak vanilla as well as spicy whiskey. Roast charred grains throughout. The coffee is a smooth medium dark roast and both milk chocolate and dark chocolate come to mind. Sweet sweet Bourbon dessert.

T- As in the smell the Bourbon barrel is really the driving force of the beer and in this brew that is not a problem. Both the whiskey, oak wood and vanilla flavors are excellent and lend themselves to the base beer quite nicely. Very smooth espresso and milk chocolate flavors and a medium sweetness. Vanilla caramel bourbon chocolate espresso drink.

MF- Light-medium bodied for the style but since the beer is kind of vanilla/bourbon driven this makes it feel more drinkable and works out well enough. The carbonation is somewhat on the low side and the texture is slick and silky/frothy. Ends a bit warm.

An excellent barrel with smooth oak, vanilla and spicy whisky character meets espresso and chocolate. Well balanced.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

$ 17.70 (Including shipping)/500 mL capped bottle ($ 1.047/oz) from Tavour, Seattle, WA.
Undated bottle. Stored at 42 degrees and served at 57 degrees in a hand-washed and dried Jester King snifter.
Appearance – 3.5.
First pour – Dark brown, clear.
Body – Dark brown/black, opaque. When held to the light, still opaque.
Head – Average (Maximum 3.5 cm, aggressive center pour), tan, medium density, below average duration, diminishing to a three mm circlet and a heaped rocky cap.
Lacing – None.
Aroma – 4.25 – Roasted malt, chocolate, some dark fruit, coffee.
Flavor – 4 - Begins with roasted malt and alcohol (10.7 % ABV). The chocolate peers from the background and the coffee and dark fruit are undetectable. No distinct flavors of either bourbon or barrel can be detected. No dimethylsulfide, no diacetyl.
Palate – 3.5 – Medium, slightly creamy, lively carbonation.
Impression and summation – 3.5. -0.25 point for being too cheap to put a date on the bottle. The aftertaste is dominated by alcohol fumes and destroys the roasted malt goodness, rather than enhancing it. ‘Way overpriced for the quality.

Bought at Liquor Shed. No dating found. My bottle says 10.7%abv.

Pours a really dark brown, almost black. Short lived head of tan foam, no lacing to speak of.

Big coffee and oatmeal notes in the smell but lots of maple syrup like sweetness takes over after a few whiffs.

The taste is way too sweet for my palate. Coffee and oatmeal are overwhelmed by the maple syrup like sweetness. Hot as hell and now I'm getting some cinnamon flavours.

Full bodied with just the right amount of carbonation.

I realized that this would be a sipper because of the abv but it's a VERY slow sipper for me. Worthy of ~$12 for the 500ml bottle? Yeah.

On tap. (And what a surprise to find this.)

A - Very dark brown colored pour that's borderline black color with a thick, toffee colored head.

S - Char and light smoke, delicate bourbon, cocoa, and milk chocolate.

T - Toasted milk chocolate, delicate smoke and char, bourbon, oak, lingering chocolate roast with bourbon. Also has very nice roasted toffee.

M - Full bodied, thick, creamy, and velvety.

O - This beer is blended incredibly well. Even though it was the very last pour from the keg, it was still good.

Served alongside Mikkeller Cù’t Cà Phê Bia and Amager / Mikkeller Hr. Frederiksens Væsel Brunch (Barrel Aged).

The beer is near black with a towering, foamy, beige head. the aroma offers bourbon, oak, roast, chocolate, vanilla, Lots of barrel characteristics. Vanilla and oak, bordering on tannic. pretty smooth on the palate. A bit of a bite in the finish from the bourbon. Lingering vanilla with a touch of coffee. Overall, pretty good, but my least favorite of the three.

L: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a deep, dark brown color and a thick, opaque consistency. There was a 3/4", foamy, long-lasting head. Not much lacing to speak of.

S: A very good aroma of bourbon, coffee, malt, chocolate, vanilla, and char.

T: Tasted of a fair amount of malt (present throughout), a decent bit of dark chocolate (could've used more), some char, a good shot of bourbon (and its accompanying oak barrel), and a lot of coffee. This is one of those flavors that grew on me. It's a boozy and burnt at first, but it settles down and the other ingredients emerge. Complex and tasty.

F: An average amount of carbonation with a warm, smooth finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A solidly made, likable beer. Drinkable.

Black body, small lacing of beige foam.

60% coffee, 40% bourbon.

Front loaded coffee. Damn near munching on coffee grounds, has that granulated feel with a terribly harsh edge. No match for the Espresso Yeti or Vietnamese Speedway smoothness. Bourbon whiskey's well underneath, hardly worth mentioning, same goes for any and all chocolate notes. The scales are not balanced, have to say it's not at all worth the $20 bomber.

Body is surprisingly light. Taken blind, I would've guess it a brown ale.
