Bottle thanks to Fitz! Pours deep brown with a small light tan head. Aroma is bourbony, plenty sweet with a nice woody and earthy note, nice fruitiness. Flavor is also very bourbon forward, sweet and caramely with plenty of fruit and some cherry. Medium to full body and a soft carbonation. Nice beer!

Bottle  @ weekly tasting shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus to celebrate the fact that the cast which has been on my left leg since March 4th (55 days ago) was removed today.. Thank god for that. I know I have a long way to go as far as full recovery goes, but I’m so happy that the cast is gone. Also, thanks to all RB friends who have wished me well during this period. It was and still is really really appreciated. -- [Rating] Nice deep dark red-brown color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, nice bourbon. Taste malts, again firm bourbon, sweet, dark fruits, raisins, some alcohol, caramel and brown candy sugar. Full body, slow drinker, average to moderate carbonation. Heavy, full and a very very nice beer. Lovely.

18.02.2016, 0,75l bottle shared @ BBGTC tasting:
Nice creamy mediumlasting head. Aroma is very mild and balanced, yet it?s not a wow experience; weeds, dark malts, vanilla, minerals, oak, chocolate, caramel, nuts, bark, dark sugar. Taste is slightly dry boozy, weeds, dark malts, minerals, caramel, chocolate, oak, vanilla, alcohol, nuts, mild bourbon. Medium bitterness, slightly mineraly mouthfeel. Nice and very balanced, but not fantastic...
