4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A beautiful very dark brown beer, with reddish hilights in the light. Almost zero head.
The bourbon barrel aging is very prevalent on the nose. Also getting raisins, fig newtons, and molasses. A viscous mouth feel.
The tastes are identical, with maybe the addition of some light brown sugar dusting to the whole affair. Getting some plum too as it warms, and very subtle vanilla. Definitely swings the way of malts,
rather than hops.
This is a runaway winner for my favourite Cameron’s beer.

Equivalent to the Obsidian IMO. Pours a murky brown with a reddy highlight. The nose has an emphasis of wood and barrel tons with big bready and toasty malts. Nice caramel and toffee notes with a sweet malt overall. The finish is warm and full bodied with big malts and barrell notes. Overall, a great brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Très peu de mousse dans ce breuvage épais et foncé, couleur brun-rouge au nez de raisins, de vin rouge, de boisé et de sucre d’orge. Le gustatif est dominé par un côté boisé et vanillé franc, qui enrobe le fruité (raisins rouges, prunes) qui forme le corps de cette concoction. Moins épais et indécemment sucré que prévu, ce bock double est étonnamment accessible, malgré des saveurs complexes et franches. Une savoureuse version de ce classique allemand.

pours dark and rich with a thick light tan head? On the nose roasty caramel notes with a hint of noble hops. A sip and you’re in heaven with caramel, malt, , grain, toffee, coffee and a touch of brown sugar notes., all complimented by the bourbon barrelIt bckground, its a plethora of complexity and a wonderful one indeed.low on hops they are nonetheless there on the finish.. Has a dough like character and a medium level of carbonation. Medium full biodied and just as tasty as hell, i wish i would have bought more of these
