3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I sampled the 1 pt., 6 fl. oz. (22 oz.) bomber bottle. This beer features a medium brown body with a large, long-lasting, light-tan head. It also left some great lacing on the glass I used. It features a big nose, with plenty of dark cherry, raisin, banana, caramel and alcohol aromas. This beer is a blend that tastes much like its Belgian Dubble alter ego going in—with a loaded, syrupy-sweet caramel malt spine—that ripens into a host of dark fruit, earthy oak, and vanilla spiciness, before executing a prolonged, dry finish. It’s a tasty, slow drinker with a big 9.0% ABV.

0.66l bottle. Misty amber color with nice browny head. Nice smell of bourbon. Aroma of cherries, plum, malt and coffee. Taste is sour and little bitter and sweet with some alcohol present. More acidic than expected, but good stuff.

From Pivoteka, shared with Mario, thanks! Unsure of the vintage - 75% "ale with fruit with vanilla beans added, 25% ale aged in bourbon barrels." Shiny ruby-brown body with a tiny off white head. Aroma - raisins and vague bourbon. Taste... raisins, fruity in general, vague tartness, light coffee, far from excessively sour, mild puckering. Slightly dry finish, notes of grapes. Actually a very nice beer, without being a thriller.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 1 pint 6oz. @Naintré, with dad and mom. A very dark brown sparkling beer with a big beige creamy head ; average retention. Roast, toast, blackberry, blackcurrant, wood, nut, vanilla, prune. Medium sweet, light to medium acid, dry bitter note, light refreshing, warming background. Medium body, average texture, light oily, average carbonation, sweet acid medium finish. Overall, a beautiful beer with a stormy fruity aroma ; makes me think of a flemish sour beer ; really good ; nice woody touch.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2015 Hazy dark brown color, small tan head. Lovely aroma, lots of dark fruit and chocolate, some wood, bit boozy. Strong sour kick right into your face, not well balanced. Cherry. Finish is extremely long, chocolate and vanilla appeared at the end. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. It soubded better than it is. //vrutak
