9er (75) - Maryland, USA - MAR 2, 2014
UPDATED: APR 14, 2014 I had this a cellar temperature at Monk’s cafe in Philly. This caramel malty brew with semi sweet bread and cereal dances on the tongue with a citrusy twinge. The alcohol is quite sufficient and the heavy mouth feel is deft with leathery carbonation. There is ginger essence and raisin, with a bourbon presence emanating from the wooden exposure. Nice to try.

ogivlado (5791) - Zagreb, CROATIA - FEB 21, 2014
Bottled 750ml. -from Svijet Piva Zagreb. Unclear amber coloured, medium to big off-white head, lots of small yeast particles floating all over the glass. Alcoholic and slight vinous fruity nose. Distinct wood notes with quite alcoholic and mild fruity taste. Some notes of yeast and spices. Dry alcoholic finish. Both of Bush (de Nuit and Prestige) beers were really great.

Lonick (781) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2014
Bottle, pours amber with an ever so slightly haze to it. A nose to die for, some slight fruit but also nuts (almonds) and hoppy. You get a big dollop of wood on the finish. The only unfortunate thing for this beer is the smell is better than the taste.

Bière très agréable! doit s’accompagner d’un bon plat idéalement au "Troll et Bush" si non Entre amis! il serait dommage de boire une si bonne bière seul!

allmyvinyl (3655) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle at Craig’s. Pours clear golden amber, big off-white head. Sherry and dried fruit aromas, marzipan at the back. Taste is more of the same, combining with some woody notes. Clean finish, very nice.

Petkus331 (269) - Redford, Michigan, USA - FEB 7, 2014
A sweet aroma of bubblegum, banana, bitter hop. Appears clear copperish gold with a thin white ring of foam around the edge. Taste is of unrefined cane sugar followed by unbalanced hop bitterness.palate is ordinary. Overall, good, not great.

January 10, 2014. 750mL bottle from British Columbia via Craig. Very nice beer. Lovely bourbon aroma, very smooth taste, golden colour. I’ll have to keep my eye out for this.

Beergeek23322 (2340) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2014
1/30/2014. 750 ml. corked and caged bottle. Amber color with a creamy white head. Spice, light fruit, malt and earthy aromas. Flavors of over ripe apples, spice, nuts. Very smooth and the high alcohol is not that present. Not sure it’s worth the price though.
