vadie (842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Couleur du caramel riche avec un petit col beige. L’arôme est plein du bourbon avec du caramel et un peu d’érable. Le goût est d’abord du caramel sucré, puis du bourbon, vanille, et scotch avec un peu d’érable dans la finale. Ce n’est pas trop sucré, et l’après goût a une bonne chaleur d’alcool.

MrHangover (2866) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle @ THT January. Side by side with the non barrel aged version. Pours a murky brownish beer with a very small beige head on top, almost headless. Aroma has loads of bourbon, malts and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is very sweet with loads of bourbon upfront, but the licorice from the base beer is still there. Good in balance with a sweet aftertaste. Good stuff!

Bottle shared at Dean’s off for his annual haircut tasting thanks to JulienHuxley. Pours murky brown with a ring tan head. Aroma of big bourbon/vanilla upfront with woody barrel notes, maple and overripe dark fruit. Flavour is heavy sweet. Near full bodied with very soft carbonation.

dresden (998) - Saskatchewan, CANADA - JAN 14, 2015
Thanks for this Thomas! Murky rusty chestnut brown with a decent off white head. Aroma of vanilla, rich bourbon, oak. Taste is not super barrel heavy, but some vanilla, lots of sweet rich malt, but very easily drinkable.

RickTheRick (487) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
** Bouteille 2011 (Merci Marheb) ** Une mousse quasi invisible se sauve rapidement d’un liquide brun foncé aux reflets acajou discrets. Des émanations puissantes de bois imbibé d’alcool fort enterrent une présence légère de fruits confits. En bouche, c’est du gros sucre d’érable alcoolisé ... j’ai eu l’image des grands-pères dans le sirop suivis d’un shooter de whiskey. La très faible carbonatation contribue à émanciper cette forte présence alcoolisée qui se termine dans une touche boisée. Malgré son âge, elle était en grande forme.

Nice strange beer with the maple coming through in the aftertaste. Quite astringent in a strange way since it is very sweet.

Lukasmh (255) - Aarhus, DENMARK - OCT 13, 2014
Tap. Pours a bit hazy deep amber with fine tan head. Aroma is loats of dried fruits, berries and brown sugar. Some toasted malts and vanilla. And the a kind of sweet licourish booze. Complex though. Taste is heavy sweet, dates, some toasted wood. Really creamy body. Boozy warming finish.
