Bomber, not sure how old, but this site claims retired. No belgianness. Vanlla, coconut and buttery bourbon. Pretty good stuff.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From the September 2013 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a hazy very dark brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was funk, anise, coconut, sweetish malts and a boozy rum presence. The flavor was tangy, malty and toasty with notes of black licorice, coconut, port wine, bourbon and chocolate. Amazingly complex with flavors that come in waves. Very long flowing finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Marvelous.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to taster at Local Option. Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent orangish brown with foamy light beige head. Smells sweet and malty like a barleywine with a notable caramel presence and a touch of Belgian yeast. Tastes like it smells with a solid mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle and served in snifter: Muddy brown with an initial okay tan head that does fade quickly, not much lace nor oily tears. The aroma has moderate bourbon notes of grain alcohol, vanilla bean, oak, leather along with some roast and coffee notes, faint wheat tones as well. The taste is quite frankly very muddled as well, boozy and syrupy sweet but strangely lacks deep malt character. Lots of oak and vanilla along with a cotton candy overtone. Hint of plum and raisin but I still wanted more dark fruit notes. The mouth feel is tannic and warming with a far too thin tone. Very disappointed in this beer, seems all over the place and just too much barrel character.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at DLD 2013. It poured a reddish brown color with a white head. The aroma was spicy chocolate wheat, banana and cocoa. The taste was similar as the aroma but very spicy and tons of chocolate banana. Very well done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Dexters. Nice brown burgundy color, unfiltered, thick. Steady thin beige head. Hmm..almost like a Belgo-American Dunkelweizen. Pleasant brown chocolate tones. Lots of clove spice action too. Quite complex and moderately sessionable . A quality, unique beer. Dubbel Weizen. Quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, yeast and vanilla wood and bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Pours a dark brown. Can't see through. Smells of bourbon and vanilla bean. Alcohol bite up front, roasted malts throughout. Sipping beer. Very thick no head.
