Papsoe (25072) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 20, 2013
Bottle 33 cl. Pours a cloudy opaque reddish brown with close to no head. Sweet and very oaky Bourbon aroma. Medium body, close to flat, more prunes and raisins than roast really, with a lightly tart edge - like in a Belgian Oud Bruin or something. A whiff of licorice and a very warming alcohol finish. Not so much an Imperial Stout, but very delicious. 200213

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 it’s 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!

fiulijn (16658) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 28, 2013
Bottle from Pibar, Lausanne
Dark brown color, with very low carbonation, and almost no head. Nice aroma of lightly roasted malt and sourish fruits; not too strong, not complex, but pleasant. Good body strength, with lean mouthfeel and light carbonation; very good flavor of caramel with a touch of malt, roasted malt and chocolate; it has a light herbal touch, and moderate fruity character; good bitterness level; warming alcohol feeling; the final has a lot of dark caramel and light liquorice, and a touch of fudge.
In this hot summer night it works well, with its dynamic character; it seems wine barrel aged more than bourbon barrel aged.
