Complex aroma, marmelade, bourbon, vanille, gedroogd fruit, marsmellows en een beetje nagellak. De afdronk is zoet en droog, zodat het niet plakkerig wordt.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled @ Haand 2013. Practically clear golden body with a thin off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, perfume (Bourbon) and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and alcoholic, some acidity, wood and quite dominating Bourbon. Full body and alcoholic aftertaste. Very nice in smaller amounts, otherwise pretty heavy.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy deep mahogny colour with a big whipped eggwhite-like beige head which fades fast. The aroma is filled with leather, dried fruit, liqour and with some oak, vanilla, rye bread and sweet malt. The flavour is still pretty sweet with a lot of alcohol. Slick mouth feel, and has a light bitterness. I think the ale lacks complexity, and there’s too much alcohol touch in my opinion.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found back tasting notes from Borets Festival 2012. Only putting them in now.
APPEARANCE: peach colored beer, small head.
NOSE: vanilla immediately noticeable, wood, reminded me a little of white wine though.
TASTE: very strong alcoholic aftertaste, lots and lots of vanilla, somewhat out of balance for me.
