_angst_ (2854) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 22, 2014
Bottle bought @ Systembolaget. Pours amber with a small slightly fizzy goldenish offwhite head that quickly dissipates without leaving much trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and malty with caramel, toffee, bourbon, charred wood, coconut milk, caramelized almonds, vanilla fudge, tingling alcohol, golden syrup, oatmeal cookies, figs and hints of hay. Taste is sweet, slightly bitter and malty with caramel, toffee, vanilla fudge, bourbon, charred wood, shredded coconut, caramelized almonds, roasted hazelnuts, caramelized apples, hay, soil, alcohol, raisins, dates and hints of orange zest. Mouthfeel is fat, syrupy, round, boozy, tiny sticky sweet and near full bodied. Finish is sweet, bitter, very tiny sour and malty with caramel, toffee, roasted nuts, charred wood, vanilla fudge, bourbon, straw, raisins, figs and orange zest. Perhaps a little hot but a very nice heavy bourbon huge malt bomb nonetheless.

laiti (5754) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 21, 2014
Draught @ Pikkulintu. Aroma has sweet bourbon tones and lots of vanilla. Also some malty caramel in the background. Flavour has lots of vanilla and some slightly stinging whisky notes. Finishes with faint traces of strawberry. Reminds me of J.W. Lees Harvest Ale?s bourbon version. I clearly see potential in this, the mixture of barley wine and bourbon notes mix up well - this is just too sweet and stuffy to be enjoyed as a beer. Unfortunately tipu sells this only in 33cl dozes.

panacea (83) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 20, 2014
Pours caramel brown with small white head. Nose is superb, lots of raisins, oak, caramel, toffee and a bit of booze. Taste is a sweet caramel, vanilla, bourbon and tart oak finish. A bit much carbonation for the style else the body is full up sticky sweetness. Superb beer!

Tap @Pikkulintu
Deep ruby color, steady off-white head. Vanilla, bacon, bourbon in the nose. Full-bodied. Soft palate. Vanilla, bourbon ... quite sweet flavor. Heavy stuff in its sweetness. But quite bourbon beer as well.

stefannilssons (1472) - SWEDEN - APR 15, 2014
Ölen inleder med en ljuvlig arom av vanilj, kokos och toffee, smaken var komplex med toner av vanilj, kokos, toffee och äpple. Kroppen var riktigt bastant och balansen tilltalande.

Lilja (1684) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2014
En riktig fullträff. Smak och doft av humle, malt, karamell, nötter, trä, plommon, fikon, whisky, fatkaraktär, bourbonkänsla, vanilj med toner av choklad, russin, aprikos, bubbelgum, brunt socker. Krämig, perfekt sötma, fruktig, intensiv, välbalanserad, komplex med tydlig, en aning pepprig beska. Väl dold alkohol som tar fram smakerna riktigt ordentligt utan att ta överhand.

Jorn69 (991) - Ängelholm, SWEDEN - APR 9, 2014
@ Havregatan. Flaska från Systembolaget (40:-). Mycket bourbon och hög sötma, karamell, maltig och fruktig, vanilj, alkoholvärme. Avslutningen är söt med bourbon-toner. Kanske något för söt.
