Very crisp, clear dark brown color. Aromas of dark roasted chocolate malt, sweet bourbon that adds vanilla and toffee. Roasted taste with a lot of bourbon flavors, vanilla, caramel, and slight burning alcohol. Warm, long finish that makes you wanna savour the moment - only to take another sip again.

This 2015 hade great balance, think it’s in it’s prime at the moment, don’t save this one, drink now. Annanas, coconut, apples, honey, vanilla. Some earthy aromas, soy is on the way, due to Barrel aging, drink now. Shared with Ida & Kapusta.

Bottle from Legacy Liquor, Vancouver, bought in 2014
Tag "Br 2/2012"

Black color, beige head, medium head, apparently less carbonated. Tickling carbonation on the tongue, dark chocolate flavor, mild bourbon or rye feeling, a bit too boozy, and moderately roasty in the final. More tobacco than the Four Roses tasted side to side. Nice sweetness level. Balanced. Very nice.

Over medium sweet with a lingering metallic bitter finish. Full bodied with soft carbonation and lingering dry feel. Quite nice except for the finish.
