Goddamn I loved this beer ! You can smell the bourbon and taste it in the beer, lot of sweet nots and even caramel a bit. I liked the warmth of this beer. The best beer I had this evening.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasting at Matt’s; version 2014; 10.5% ABV
Brown color with huge compact head. Strong aroma of marzipan, bourbon, dust. Too high carbonation, having a negative impact on the mouthfeel; dark caramel flavor, some malt, too much whiskey and boozy notes, maybe rye, and some liquorice.
Very messy; excessive; not bad, but very difficult to drink.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Robe brune foncée avec un étais col blanchâtre. Arômes de bourbon intense, levures épicées, caramel, anis, malt et baies confites. En bouche, gros goût de bourbon sucré, chocolat au lait, noisette, un peu houblonné. Très soyeux, alcool discret. Très rond et effervescence un peu intense au début mais qui se replace par la suite. Les amateurs de bourbon seront choyés. Pas d’une grande complexité mais excellente bière.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Boozy sweet bourbon notes and toffee. Cloudy dark brown with a rich beige head. Boozy bourbon notes, no heat but also a bit one sided. Not bad, but a bit boring.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
22 oz. bottle, pours a murky dark amber brown with a large white head. Aroma brings out whiskey barrels, light smoke, and bready malt. Flavour is fairly aggressive, with lots of smoky whiskey barrels. Not a whole lot else here. The carbonation is really aggressive, a little too much so. The carbonation detracts a bit, but this is quite nice for what it is.

Bottle. Heavy roasted aroma fo the malt, moderate cooked orange for the hops, and dough fo the yeast, with background notes of toffee, date, aisin, brown sugar and port wine.Head is tiny, wispy, off-white with a spot or two of lacing and good legs, and is almost fully diminishing. Color is murky dark red/brown. Flavor starts moderately to heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately sweet and faintly bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy, with a soft carbonation, and finishes sticky on the lips.This American Strong Ale aged very well in the bottle.lasting aromas and lingeing flavors with nothing off in the least.
