4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A Mes rate. Bottle at 1st Borefts Beer Festival.
Excellent clean gold with a good white head and lace. Aroma is amazing. Fruit a plenty, really good sugary notes and some excellent barrelly notes. The flavour is equally brilliant. Soft and sweet, beautiful apples and tropical fruit. Unusual juicy yet dry feel. Excellent barrelly character and gorrrrrrgeous booze in the very lengthy finish. Not my best rate but this is one of Davey and Glennís best.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle at 1st Borefts BF 09. Subtle vanilla bourbon aroma. Thatís really good. Flavour of the beer still comes through with a lovely vanilla edge and touch of bourbon on finish. Itís one of the best bourbon barrel beers Iíve had. Davy and Glen said that they wanted something a bit more subtle than some barrel aged beers and they have got it just right for my taste at least. Lovely bit of candied/sour/tangerine/orange fruit comes through on the swallow. Beer of the day for me (apart from the Dirty Horse of course).
