75 cl bottle (from an IP trade with richiesd) @ home, shared with caesar, borresteijn & MarcodL. Pours a deep brown color. Off white head, short retention. Aroma’s: full on bourbon, sweet, vanilla, caramel, really nice. Flavor is sweet, a bit boozy, hints of marzipan. Fairly strong alcohol feel and rather full bodied. Long finish. Wonderful, much nicer than the base beer.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
750 mL bottle shared by me with Gus and ebone1988. The pour is a dark muddy brown/light black with a thin collar of khaki head and a couple spots of good lace. The aroma is brilliant. There is a lot of malt and a great light candy. Bourbon barrel. Lots of oak and vanilla with a light booze. The flavor is great. Lots of caramel and a great maltiness. There is a light booze and a great vanilla and oak barrel presence. The mouth feel is thick and creamy with an excellent carbonation and a lingeringly beautiful aftertaste. I love this beer!

1pt 9.4fl.oz 2012 bottle. Thank you FatPhil! Sugary, raisins, malty, clear bourbon, thin, slimy, not sticky, dry for what it is at the same time, smooth velvety texture. Complex and interesting creation. But is definitely overpriced.

Bottle courtesy of bytemesis, thanks Mike! Pours a rich mahogany, dark amber hues with a toffee colored head that breaks to some fine lacing before settling to a ring. Aromas are very bold roasted malts. Hints of smoke, tobacco, bourbon, vanilla and oak. Taste is loaded with more depth! Dark fruits give way to some nuttiness...roasted pecan...then moves into a caramel/toffee note before the bourbon/oak and vanilla notes move into the finish. Alcohol is very cleanly masked. Full bodied beer....great sipper!!
