4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
375ml bottle from Brewdog shop.
No visible head or lacing. Body is clear dark brown. Nose is caramel, popcorn, vanilla, wood. Flavour is creamy caramel, bourbon, rum, some alcohol burn. A little spice on the finish, some treacle. Very smooth mouthfeel, no carbonation, sticky and a bit chewy. So much going on here, a bit jarring at times but then it melds together. Quite a weird beer but a good one to savour.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
37.5% bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is dark brown, head is flat, no lacing. Nose is liqueurish, flavor is bourbon, whine, cherry, candy sweets, honey, wood. Heavy sweet, light bitter, medium sour. Finish is long lasting medium sweet-sour, roasty and smoky light bitter, medium to heavy alcohol warmth. Full body, oily texture, nearly flat carbonation. A bit heavy dessert beer, not too easy to drink, interesting, I’d call it barley wine.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
375 ml bottle 1625 of 8250, shared by Werckmeister, thanks!
Dark brown body, almost no head.
Aroma of smooth bourbon, coconut, vanilla, chocolate, some dark fruits, alcohol.
Taste follows this pretty much, dominant bourbon and smooth, dark, sweet malts, with some more liquorice.
Medium, oily mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation.
Finishes boozy, astringent, with bourbon, dark chocolate, some liquorice.
Very nice. Not that complex, straight bourbon notes and dark malts. Pretty boozy, but nice sipper. Not my favourite from the AB series, but another enjoyable one.

Bottle #6920. Dark color without foam. Aroma: barrel, red port wine, sweetish malty, toffee and fruit. Where’s the popcorn? Taste: sweet toffee, great porto, a little salty caramel, warming like this fruit liqueur. Great ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from the cellar. Pours deep brown, no head at all. Aroma of marron glace, brown sugar, treacle. Very little carb - just a sparkle. Big caramel flavour between candied fruits, fudge and condensed milk - a hint of salt and some slight butterscoth. Barrel is evident with some vanilla and a touch of sugar and spice, along with some heat. With some carb this would have been up in the 4s.
