Clear amber appearance. Aroma and flavour have some light fruits. Strangely some sweet tomato too. Flavour has lots of sweet Bourbon. Very dry and woody finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
At LIBF. Moussy, dense, egg-white head, cloudy amberish chestnut bronze colour. Rich aroma of vanilla tannins, dried banana, medlar, pear syrup, wet wood, bourbon, marzipan, candied orange, marmelade; sweet onset, rounded, brown sugar, fig, banana with a very (too?) subtle cherry sourishness, fluffy and full mouthfeel, caramelly, toffeeish, oaky finish with beautiful retronasal vanilla-like tannins, warming whisky-like alcohol. Rich and opulent, but perhaps a bit too much tilted to the sweet side, a tad more cherry tartness could probably have made this even better.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sweet berries, bready, bit underwhelming. Soft taste, too barrel aged go me, thinning down the beer and giving sharp edges that donít match the beerís malt and yeast Base. Itís nice but I hoped for amazing. (At Libf 2016)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It pours a cloudy medium brown with a full tan head that is long lasting and produces plenty of Belgian lace. There are aromas of cherries, spices, dark fruits, plums roasted malts, toffee, and bourbon. The cherries fade a bit as the beer warms. There are cherry flavors, some tartness, roasted malts, toffee, bourbon, spices, and hints of vanilla. There is a powerful alcohol warm with a medium feel and some light mouth puckering.

Torpedo bottle. Brown colored. Just a great mix of bourbon wood notes and warming alcohol you get from a quad. Nice. Very nice. Give me another one please.!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
75cl bottle [2011 release] @ weekly tasting shared with Joes and Dutchdrebus. Clear red color, medium sized off-white head. Aroma is lightly malts, cherries, alcohol, bourbon slightly. Taste lightly malts, quite alcoholic again, bourbon indeed, wood, firm cherry sour-bitter. Quite heavy due to the alcohol, glad I didnít have to drink this bottle alone. The score represents a glass, if I had to drink the entire bottle and score it, I would say it would get about a 3.2.
