JefVerstraete (1891) - Ghent, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle from De Hopduvel. Dark brown colour, almost no head. Almost no carbonation. Nose of port, vanilla, bourbon, caramel and chocolate. Sweet and a bit vinous. Boozy. A tad too sweet in my opinion.

Bosbouw (1572) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2015
Chocolade bruine kleur met een kleine doch mooie kraag. Ruikt zoet, crème, vanille, alcohol. Smaakt vol, vanille, crème. Subtiele zoete smaak met iets alchol. Lekker, maar verraderlijk.

mike_77 (3634) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2015
(Wild Turkey) Dark brown with creamy head. Bourbon aroma. Flavour is sweet with Bourbon and dark malts. Really smooth and easy to drink. Rather strangely there’s a very slight beefy, gravy-like edge in the background.

Tap at Winterbierfestival 2015, Gouda: Dark brown with red glow colored brew and the taste is pretty sweet bitter with an nicely burn. Hints of chocolate, vanille and dried fruits. Very dangerous high alcohol volume you don’t noticed very well.

ShivanDragon (2001) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
donker bruin met rode gloed, minimale witte kraag. Aroma van mout, zoet, alcohol, en volle graan. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, zeer sterk, redelijk fruitig (rozijn), sterk moutig/granig, volle body, romig en glad mondgevoel, zacht, lage co2, lange en zoetige afdronk. Voor een Barley Wine wel erg zacht in de mond, gevaar is het alcoholpercentage, deze valt eigenlijk niet op (daarentegen ben ik al een avondje aan het opbouwen ;) ) . al met al prima BW. !

Beerconnaiseur (164) - BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2014
Bottle nr 30 from a fellow beer connaiseur friend who bought it at the 2012 ACBF Alvinne festival in Moen - Belgium. Sirupy dark golden pour with no head. Aroma is wort and hint of vanilla. Reminds me of the Amarillo wort aromas of De Molen. Hay, barnyard, dried grass, oak and strong aged madeira wine esters. Soury whiskey flavours. Very sugarry that tones down flavours and makes it a flat aftertaste.

MarcoDL (2588) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2014
Brownish beer with a body of sweet malt. Notes of raisin, dark fruits and of course the delicious bourbon. The beer leaves a warming glow, although the alcohol is quite well hidden in the taste. Very tasty.
