(Keg at Pikkulintu, 20140427) The beer poured ruby red and clear. Its head was small and white. Aroma had malts, vanilla and caramel. Palate was full bodied and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were sweetness, vanilla, malts, alcohol and bitterness. Aftertaste was sweet and bitter. Too sweet and boozy brew.

Vignale (3273) - Malmö, SWEDEN - MAY 1, 2014
Flaska från SB. Bärnstensfärgad, klar i princip inget skum. Stor söt doft av vanilj, russin, dadlar, bourbon, fat, ljunghonung. Kraftig, alkholvärme, liknande smakbild som doften, rund måttlig beska. Bra balans, fina fatnyanser, maffigt och riktigt gott.

_angst_ (4466) - 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 (8036) - 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 (94) - 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!
