maledictum (741) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - MAY 20, 2016
Fairly vibrant dark brown/orange color, with a thin bubbly off-white head. No lacing or retention. Bourbon is right up front; woody; touch of sweetish malt. Mellower bourbon flavor than suggested in the nose; touch of alcohol; sweeter maltiness; hops don’t really show up at all. More bourbon than AB in the taste. Medium; dryish; muted carbonation. Little heavy on the booziness in the flavor made this a little less drinkable for me. Definitely a sipper, but this became less easy through the sample. Overall, the bourbon was a little overwhelming at points

Bottle at home from brewdog online. An attractive deep ruby red amber brown coloured pour with a lasting frothy magnolia head. Aroma is sweet woody malts, vanilla bourbon, toffee and brown sugars, hints of liquorice. Flavour is composed of toasted wood, bourbon, virgin oak, bitter black liquorice, toffee. A harsh bitter woody finish. Palate is semi sweet, medium full rounded bodied, frothy moderate carbonation.

ClubGonzo (5220) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 17, 2016
On tap @ Mikkeller & Friends, Copenhagen. Deep nougat-hued amber clear body, medium off-white head. Nose is grass, grapefruit, wood, red fruits, caramel and hints of toffee, herbs, alcohol and licorice. Taste is caramel, wet grass, bitter herbs, vanilla, grains, grapefruit and hints of pine, red fruits, alcohol and licorice. Medium to full body, medium carbonation. Nice and flavorful, but a bit on the sharp side, possibly due to the barrel aging? Nevertheless, good stuff.

johndoughty (4772) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2016
Bottle.From one of California’s finest breweries.Large head upon pouring which quickly dissipated. Woody slightly smoky with plenty of body and left lots of lacing. Very much in your face and too be sipped rather straight down your throat.

josanguapo (880) - SPAIN - MAY 14, 2016
From XXXII. In Teku glass. Playing South Park Stick of Truth. The bourbon character is bigger than desiderable and becomes a bit tiring. Id like to try then non-BA version to compare
