MarcoDL (3199) - NETHERLANDS - APR 9, 2015
Bottle. Copper color, virtually no head. Aroma of vanilla and raisin. Taste is sweet at first, with vanilla and raisin, after that the bourbon kicks in with some mildly sharp booze, some bitter hops in the finish as well. Nice, but a bit thin, could use more depth in body and flavor.
