4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour. Tan creamy head. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt and a little sweet bourbon. Silky/creamy with a taste very close to the aroma. Finishes creamy and sweet. The bourbon is there, but not overwhelming. I usually like a little stronger bourbon flavor in this style, but this is a nice balance.

(Bottle, 0.65 l, at Päämaja, 20141011) The beer poured black. Its head was medium sized and lightly brown. Aroma had vanilla, chocolate and burnt malts. Palate was quite full bodied and dryish with medium carbonation. Flavours were vanilla, burnt malts, ash, chocolate and bitterness. Aftertaste had vanilla, burnt malts and bitterness. A tasty barrel aged beer but somewhat watery.

Has vanilla notes with some licorice. this taste mellows after first opening. really balanced. Price point is very good for this and on the low end of alcohol content for a barrel aged beer. Would drink this again.

Dark brown body with a medium beige head. Aroma is malty, sweet, wood, brown sugar, vanilla. Taste is heavy sweet with light bitterness. You can almost taste the bourbon. Medium to light body, smooth texture, soft carbonation. Would like more of a punch from a bourbon barrel stout.
