Vaiz (3553) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 5, 2014
Bottle at home. Clear dark copper pour, no head. Aroma is candy sugars, vanilla, licorice, caramel, tropical fruits, spicy and slightly warming. The flavor is quite warming, very sweet and with a nice spicy bourbon sharp edge to it. Really well balanced and solid. Great brew.

Bottle . Pours very dark amber/brown, no head at all . Smell is bourbon , wood , Sweetness from the basebeer . Thick mouthfeel . Sweet, bourbon, oak , the basebeer shines trough nicely . Some forest-leaves , Buttery, vanilla , alcohol is so hidden, You could easely mistake this for a 7 percent beer ... DAMN !!! Just like any others in this series, this is top notch ,,, Desert in a glass .

BoBoChamp (5759) - 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 (19) - 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 (5158) - 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.

Clear medium amber color with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, caramel, pale malt, wood, oak, sweet malt, dried fruit. Flavour is light heavy sweet with a long duration, dried fruit, bourbon - vanilla toutch. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat. So easy to drink ! again a nice BW from Menno ;D [20140502]
