[4150-20111124] 600mL bottle. Overly sweet and nutty wood barrel aroma. Black brown body with a quick creamy off-white head. Super whiskey sweet bourbon flavour has a long sweet boozy aftertaste. Full body. Good, solid. (8/3/7-/3/14) 3.5
(w/ blankboy, HogTownHarry, jerc)

November 24, 2011 - with blankboy, jerc and mabel. 750ml bottle c/o J&K. It’s slightly hazy red with a reasonably large tan fizzy/foamy quick-diminishing head. Definite sweet bourbon in the aroma, and alcohol, a little buttery (not diacetyl) - like a floral nutbrown, nice. Taste is - oh, man - BOURBON, and butterscotch, sure wish I liked bourbon; somewhat restrained 10% alcohol presence, maybe a little fruity in behind. Sticky, solid body, weak carbonation, finishes .... bourbon. An extra point for "rare"

This one’s not really doing it for me. Up front aromas of malty stuff like caramel, burnt toast. Middle is smooth, but bourbon is kind of overwhelming in the end. Leaves an aroma behind that, for me, isn’t entirely pleasant. Taste is very sweet, heavy. Very light bitterness from the burnt aromas maybe. Very full body with oily/creamy texture. Very little carbonation. Finish is astringent to bitter. Would maybe like to try the non-Bourbon version of the Bog Water to see if it’s just the bourbon that turned me off.
