2017 bottle. Liquid chocolate, vanilla, burbon and buttery finish. Really, really good.

Sample at Mikkeller Beer Celebration Copenhagen 2018, Blue Session. Aroma has sweet cake notes, chocolate, cacao, bourbon and butterscotch. Taste is bittersweet with vanilla, cacao, butterscotch, bourbon and a bit of booze.

Received in a trade and shared with JLindros.

A - Poured into a Kate the Great tulip a nice dark black hue with a wispy mocha head that fades to leave a thin halo. The legs are excellent.

S - Big aromas of vanilla and marshmallow fluff. Great fudgy chocolate. The barrel notes are incredibly subtle. Really just a vanilla bomb.

T - Taste is similar to the nose with great vanilla and marshmallow notes. Big fudgy chocolate notes, light bourbon notes. There are good almost vanilla cake like as well. Quite flavorful.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated, little syrupy, decent booze notes too.

O - Overall this was a rather solid stout, however, it definitely is over hyped. Good vanilla and marshmallow going on. Still, there are loads of flaws.

Huge thanks to rudzud
Pours a smaller but nice looking fizzy mocha colored head that disappears quickly, long thick legs, pitch black motor oil color

NOse tons of fudge, marshmallow, a bit of cocoa and dark chocolate, some caramel, big rich vanilla, a little roast and coffee notes, just a bit of bourbon, a touch of barrel, a syrupy roast that gets a little iffy as well

Taste starts with tons more marshmallow and fudgey cocoa, dark chocolate, a bit of chocolate syrupy, loads of vanilla too, fresh vanilla bean and a bit of caramel nougat, mild roasted coffee and roasted malts, raw cocoa nibs, faint faint whisky and barrel, a bit syrupy, but also fairly boozy, lingering roast and chocolate syrup, bit more caramel and vanilla lingering

Mouth is heavier bod syrupy, some alcohol tingly warmth, decent carb

Overall pretty nice base beer, but lacking bourbon barrel unfortunately
