BoBoChamp (5443) - Gent, BELGIUM - AUG 27, 2014
33cl, as Bommen & Granaten ’Bourbon’, new exclusive Dutch brew Anno 2014, from De Hopduvel Gent, very complex brew, sweet/alcoholic/fruity and slightly woody/spicy, yet not too heavy, very balanced, hazy, nearly no head, top class!, yet expensive!, WOW!, ’This to celebrate my 200th beer rating from Brouwerij de Molen; Bommen & Granaten will always be one of my favorites from this awesome brewery!’

riktw (17) - NETHERLANDS - AUG 14, 2014
darkbrown reddish color, almost no foam. Quite a sweet beer but in a pleasant way. The very high alcohol content is not present in beer. It’s quite a thick beer, almost syrupy. It tasts like bourbon, wood, chocolate, dark fruits although less then the normal version, caramel and a hint of liquorice. Very special beer with a lot of flavour.

kappldav123 (4971) - GERMANY - AUG 14, 2014
Tap at CBC 2014. Brownish-copper coloured, small head. Moldy-malty aroma. Starts intense malty, quite alcoholic, dusty-dry. Bitter moldy finish, quite unbalanced. Not my favourite.

Beerconnaiseur (92) - BELGIUM - JUL 19, 2014
Bottle from Hopduvel. Lovely alcoholous, full bodied scent & taste. Balanced. Palate is incredibly rich and full and balances sweetness with roasty notes, bitters on the end. Taste is dark chocolate, deep sweet soy sauce and coffee beans. Amazing one!

tricksta_p (1098) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - JUL 1, 2014
Aroma of overripe fruits, sweet apricot, caramel, wood, bourbon, toffee, vanilla. Flavour is massive sweetness. Body is thick, mouthfeel is sticky. Alcohol is surprisingly well-hidden for a 16% brew. The aroma is impressive, but the flavour is a bit too sweet for my taste.

Borup (5873) - Albertslund, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2014

gEUS (1055) - Linden, BELGIUM - JUN 21, 2014
bottle at home. Pours deep amber with a small beige head, slight carbonation. Deep malty aroma’s, sticky sweet candi Sugar and subtle yet full bourbon oak notes. Thick body, very sweet with a small bitterness in the back of the finish. Taste is a malt bomb with some vanilla. Alcohol heat is there in the back, but not as overwhelming as the regular one.
