Tap. Unclear brown with a small off white head. Heavy bourbon, heavy sweet, molasses, sticky, not boozy but alcohol lurking in a dark alley waiting to punch me in the face and steal all my stuff. Real heavy sticky bourbon and warming alcohol.

olio (7528) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 16, 2013
18 cl bottle. Bottle #776. Brewed on 12.01.2011. Bottled on 02.07.2012.
Pours clear copper color with no head. Aroma of ripe fruits, glue-like alcohol, cloud berries and wooden notes. Flavor of ripe fruits, sweetish caramel malts, toffee and resin. Sweet and sticky palate but not as sweet as I expected. Surprisingly subtle and the alcohol is pretty well hidden. Nothing special though.

180ml bottle from Beernavigator

Bottle #776, brewed 12.1.2011, bottled 2.7.2012 - Pours dark brown with no head. Aroma of strong sweet syrupy malty notes, oak, wood, vinegar and alcohol. Taste is messy with strong sweet syrupy notes, alcohol, hints of bourbon, oak and wood. Finish is sticky, sweet, malty and oaky with notes of vanilla, bourbon and alcohol. Slightly too sweet for my taste, feels a bit unbalanced, but still surprisingly not that bad.

PotjeBier (1999) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 26, 2013
18 cl bottle A home. Red-brown color. No head to speak of. Aroma’s: wood, boozy, sour fruit, with sweetness (sweet fruit) and bourbon & vanilla retronasal. Flavor is sweet, toffee-ish. Full bodied, thick mouthfeel, but alcohol feel isn’t that strong. Medium carbonation. Long finish with dried fruit and some wood. Nice nightcap.
