3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
25th July 2013
Almost clear deep red - amber beer. Small cream coloured head. Smooth and slightly soft palate with light fine carbonation. This is one of those beers that are barrel aged to within an inch of itís life! Smooth sweet malt, sweet vanilla, dry wood. Tangy bourbon with a touch of dark fruits. The malt base is somewhat subsumed. Sweeter bourbon before the smooth finish. Touch of spice. So very BA, so very drinkable!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. Clear amber body with a small, dense beige head. Aroma has moderate roasted malt, caramel, dry fruit, oak and warming alcohol. Flavor is sweet and bitter with less malt flavor than expected, sweet dry fruit/marmalade and lots of oak and alcohol. Nice body with a long lasting sweet alcoholic and oak aftertaste. Plenty of aroma and flavor here, not unpleasant at all, but the total here ads up a bit to boozy and oaky for the fine balance that could have been here. Not bad, but not perfect.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, 33cl. A clear looking dark brown beer, next to black, and topped by a small, beige head. The aroma has a funky twist, with roasted malts, coffee and some berries, molasses and sourness. Itís full-bodied and lightly warming, with a soft carbonation. Soy sauce, caramel, roasted matls, molasses and a funky touch in the flavor. Lasting finish. I like it, but Iím not impressed. It sort of doesnít impress, even though thereís quite a few nice things going on. 130928

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a deep mahogany with a thin off-white head. The aroma is rich fruit and alcohol and I swear there was a hint of vinegar too, which surprised me. The flavour is medium to strong bitter with a big fruit and alcohol, liqourice palate a super big beer with loads of flavour.
